We stayed here for three nights during a very busy CNY holiday weekend on Langkawi (January 2014.) Our experience was wonderful. The hotel is a set of duplex cottages, well-shaded and kept very clean by the staff. The breakfast spread is excellent: standard western fare is set out when it starts at 7:00, and they refresh those items while also preparing various local dishes during the breakfast hours. The reception desk is only open for 12 hours, but the owner of the property is available during breakfast hours as well. He and the rest of the staff were very kind and courteous on all of the occasions we had to interact with them.
We were doing this trip in a very cost-conscious manner, and decided against staying at an inclusive resort for that reason. The key to doing this sort of trip successfully is having a clean and quiet base of operations, and this hotel was perfect for our needs. Tengah Beach is much more conducive to laying out and relaxing than the busier Cenang Beach to the north.
This hotel is especially well-suited for travelers who are hiring a car or scooter: there is ample parking, and the street is quiet enough that you won't get stuck waiting for an opening to leave (unlike on the main drag that runs down Cenang). At the same time, you're close enough to the bustle of Cenang that it's a pleasant walk, especially in the evening breeze.
I have already recommended this hotel to friends and family in Singapore and would definitely stay there again if our travels return us to Langkawi.
