This hotel is wonderful. It is small hotel and this makes it such a personal experience. The staff are warm, friendly and welcoming and treat you like a long lost friend on return. It is the little touches though, that really make it; the supply of fresh ground coffee and tea, lovely orange cookies, and peanuts in the room. You get a weather forecast delivered to the room each night, along with a bookmark infused with scented oils. Ahh, just lovely. The rooms are really very spacious and well thought out (a hotel which actually puts sockets near mirrors - wonderful!). There are paperbacks in the room for you to choose from, in addition to a well stocked library, which includes DVDs. There is a constant supply of large beach towels delivered to the rooms and although some of them are a bit tatty and faded, it really doesn't matter! Fresh iced water and little fruit kebabs delivered to your sun bed, free of charge! Absolute luxury. Breakfasts here are divine and served up until 11.00 am. There is a wide range of food to suit everyone including eggs florentine, Malay omelettes, cereals, a variety of bread and the most delicious and unusual jams - pear jam, pineapple jam. The spa is lovely too and very reasonably priced. If we had one criticism this visit (our fifth), it was that the evening dining experience seemed to have slipped a little in terms of quality. I have to say it is the only real 'fine dining' experience along Chenang beach, and the tables are lovely and you're sat on the beach with your toes in the sand, BUT, of the three meals we had and for the price we paid, we thought the quality was lacking - the steak was tough, as was the lamb rack, the Caesar salad was rather gooey with too much dressing and spicy croutons which added nothing, and the chicken tikka curry was ill conceived. I hope it was just an off week and it certainly won't put us off visiting this jewel of a hotel again.

We stayed for 7 days on the Indulgence Package which includes: accommodation, 4 dinners at La Sal restaurant; breakfast and two massages each at the spa. I can highly recommend this as a very good deal considering the quality of the restaurant (see separate review).

We booked a mini suite (Bakau) which was lovely and very well appointed with its own outside gazebo with a view over pool and out to sea. The interior could have been much improved though with more thought to lighting in the living area which just had ceiling and wall lights. Just one lamp would have made all the difference.

Breakfast was all you could ask for with a good selection from the buffet as well as a la carte. Although on a couple of occasions we ordered some eggs which were served quite cold.

As stated in other reviews this is a great place for those just wanting to get away from it all and chill out. It is very relaxing lounging by the pool or on the beach and the incredibly friendly staff are always there to assist. The iced water and fruit kebabs which they regularly bring around are very welcome. Having also stayed at the Danna, the Casa del Mar deserves its current No 1 status on TA, although not by too much and as they are quite different hotels, comparison is difficult.

Unfortunately there is always something to spoil paradise and perhaps this is just a personal thing, but the atmosphere is sometimes spoilt by what I can only describe as terrible music emanating from the bar. If anybody is aware of the Buddah bar gendre of music this is it, ie inane repetition, little melody and usually a heavy base. Why, when you are sitting on a tropical white beach reading a good book, the sound of the waves, wind in the palms and birds chirping in the trees, this is not enough?

Room Tip: Worth spending the extra for a mini suite for the view and private balcony. Would recommend the north side, as I found the music coming from the bar (which you can hear when outside) a little irritating.

Here for 4 nights at the tail end our honeymoon. We have come from 5* luxury in the Cameron Highlands and the O&E in Penang and this tops them all. Great central location for all trips and activities but a perfect slice of paradise with quiet beach front and beach side pool and bar. Staff are fantastically friendly and we couldn't have chosen better. Dining on the beach each night is quite special too. ;-)

We took the advice of a reviewer, visited Casa del Mar for coffee, with the intention that if it was as good as the reviews we would definitely book an evening meal to celebrate my birthday'
We were not disappointed. We were welcomed very pleasantly at reception, escorted through the hotel to the garden; tables nicely spaced (eg you can talk without over hearing some one elses conversation )... it was beautiful, with a lovely dining area,a small bar to the side of the dining area, with an incredible view of the beach, palm trees...so romantic.
We were told that weather permitting we could have a table on the beach..We did have a quick glance at the menu and there was a good varied choice, of meals. A little more expensive than your average restaurant in Langkawi, we thought very inexpensive compared to Perth prices , and for such an amazing location.
It rained the evening we had booked for dinner, but were given a table at the far end of the dining area, The staff were excellent, very pleasant.. The meal was delicious , lovely presentation.
It was a lovely surprise when my dessert was served there was 'Happy Birthday Ruby 'written in chocolate around the outside of the dish..it was a very kind gesture and really appreciated.
Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic, celebratory dinner. The service was excellent .

The service at this hotel is great, and we felt welcome and appreciated every single day. It’s a quite small hotel, which is only a positive thing. It has a unique and intimate atmosphere, and it didn’t take long until we just loved this place. The food at the hotel restaurant I very good for food lovers, a high level on the cooking made every meal something to look forward to. If you don’t want to eat at the hotel, there are several nearby restaurant to choose from – only within a 2-3 minutes walk.

The rooms are quite small, so if you like spacious rooms I would recommend to book a suite. Be aware that the mattresses are pretty hard, so if you are just to medium or soft beds, try to ask for a mattress top.

The location is beautiful, beachfront view everywhere and just a few steps to the lovely water. The whole place is just beautiful and absolutely worth a stay.

Room Tip: The mattresses are hard, so if you like soft beds ask for a mattress top. The rooms are quite small, but yet comfy.
