I've stayed here several times and have always thoroughly enjoyed my stay, but I'm fairly certain that we will not be going back again any time soon. We decided to stay here on the last night of our honeymoon, but were shocked to discover that one of the main draws, the swim up pool bar, has been taken away. And not only was it removed, it has been replaced with a big children's play area. The resort seems to be turning more family oriented. While this isn't generally a problem, we weren't looking for our last day/ night in Langkawi to be spent listening to the dulcet tones of screaming (albeit laughing) children, and would have opted to stay elsewhere had we known that this would be the case.
We had stayed at another resort previously on this trip, for a similar price, and found the staff much more friendly, and the atmosphere much more relaxing and enjoyable, than at the Pelangi Beach.
Admittedly, the addition of the C Ba is great, it is a definite improvement on what was there previously, and the location is still great, but for a relaxing holiday I would say that the Pelangi Beach no longer holds that charm.
