Hotel was booked directly via the website and all emails were answered promptly. We opted for the Sunset 1 room for a stay of one week. We checked in early at around 11:30am with no problem and were given a friendly welcome by one of the receptionists who wanted payment up front for the whole stay. Safety deposit boxes of various sizes are available at reception for securing any valuables.
The hotel occupies a long narrow strip of land with a path meandering down to the beach. On either side of the path are the rooms, a series of semi-detached one-storey bungalows. There are well-kept small gardens infront of the rooms, as well as Balinese stone statues, and stone vessels with frangipani flowers floating in them. The breakfast area is in a small restaurant on the beachfront which is only open 8am-11am. Breakfast is quite simple, eggs cooked to order then a small buffet of fruit, toast, noodles, tea and coffee.
The Sunset 1 room we had was pleasant; a small terrace outside with table and chairs and a washing line had a small degree of privacy thanks to some bushes. The bed was a mattress on a wooden platform. There was a small seating area next to the window, tea and coffee making facilities, a small fridge, a TV (with no English language channels), dressing table and mirror (hair dryer was provided), and wardrobe. An electric mosquito plug in was also in the room. Above the wardrobe was the air con unit, and above the bed was a ceiling fan. The bathroom was light and airy thanks to the translucent roof. The shower was powered by a small heater and worked well. The bathroom sink only had one cold water tap. Towels were replaced randomly. Beach towels were also provided.
The beach area had plenty of sunbeds, some in a state of disrepair. We didn't ever have a problem getting a sunbed. Palm trees provided much needed shade. There was also a little massage shack on the beach.
The staff were on the whole very friendly and helpful, always greeting us by name. Free Wi-fi was available in the lobby.
There are a few mini markets around the hotel, and some nice restaurants. Underwaterworld and a couple of duty free shops were within easy walking distance. We also found a nice laundry 5 minutes walk away.
Due to a late flight out of Langkawi, we arranged a late check out the day before we were due to depart, and paid half the daily room price to retain the room until 6pm.
On the whole a very nice little budget hotel in a quiet part of town.
