Stayed here for 4 nights in April 2013.
Very close to the airport, so is a very quick trip by taxi. Rooms are in keeping with the tropical / environmental setting. Staff are very friendly and attend quickly to any issues. Best location on the beach at Cenang. Nice beach with relaxed feel and limited outsiders. Hotel has it's own jet ski hire so limited risks with dodgy operators. Breakfast has a great range and goes until 11am. Taxi rank is straight across from the hotel. Not hotel specific, but taxi fares are regated well on Langkawi so tourists don't get ripped off. Dinner from the hotel restaurant was included in the pricefor one night and was awesome, must try the banana and coconut desert!!
Drink prices, for example a 500ml water costs $7 from the beach bar which leaves a bad impression of trying to rip off the guests. No sellers with pineapple, mango, coconut, etc on this stretch of beach.
Generally, was very impressed with this resort and would definitely stay here again. Also, Cenang is fairly quiet so good for those who want a relaxed beach holiday without the Phuket dush dush dush party scene.
