Holiday Villa Beach Resort & Spa Langkawi
Ranked #21 of 104 Hotels in Langkawi
Reviewed October 3, 2012

The resort is well situated on the quieter end of the beach and the beach is beautifully clean.The hotel pool is huge and has a swim up bar, very nice gardens leading through to the beach. Basically externally everything is great but when you go inside the hotel it is very tired and dated. If the bathrooms and corridoors got a lick of paint it would certainly make a difference.
Probably my biggest rant would be the reason I picked the resort is that it welcomes wedding ceremonies on the beach. Our planner did a rehearsal with us one afternoon which basically went through the full vowes and only took maybe ten minutes. The entertainment manager contacted me the next day asking us did we want to hold the reception at the hotel. I asked them to put a package together that I could compare with other places I had viewed. They then told me if I didnt take their package that I woul have to pay a surcharge for using the beach, all in all there was a party of eleven staying up to twelve nights so we had already given them a hefty bit of business. In the nicest possible way I told them to take their surcharge and stick it where the sun dont shine!

Having stayed several times at HV and whilst haven't had any problems with check in, service, accommodation the place was definitely beginning to look very run down. So it was nice this trip to see some renovation work around the place happening at last. Repainting of outside - still a long way to go but you can see what a difference removal of some vines and a coat of paint can make. Our room had had it's bathroom updated and was very nice. Couldn't fault the cleaning and changing of bedding and towels at all. Lovely to see the new uniforms the staff now have instead of the somewhat dowdy brown of before. Staff as usual all very friendly and always happy faces.

The daily water and tea and coffee supplies you get as returning guests was very hit and miss though this year. Also a minor hiccup when we dined in the Legenda restaurant one night, with my husband's entree finally turning up at the table the same time as the main course.

Another very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Try and avoid rooms that face head onto the pool as you get direct sun on your balcony most of the d...

Nice place to stay in Langkawi if you want to stay close but not too close to the Pantai Cenang market. Has a beautiful private beach with a nice beach bar. Very nice pool to lounge around during the afternoon with a nice pool bar. The staff was friendly and very courteous. Overall, a nice experience.

Fast check in by efficient staff, can't fault that - stayed in the Federal Villa part of the resort and those rooms leave a lot to be desired. Mold (heaps of mold - I'm not fussy but there was heaps of it) on the bathroom door, bad beds, and generally tired interior. These rooms are cheap for family stays - but you get what you pay for.

Kitchen area not really functional at all - only a kettle ( cord not long enough to plug in and leave on a bench to boil) and an old small fridge that struggled to maintain a temp just below room temp - nothing else was provided.

No in room safe available, and a 15" lcd tv supplied.

Extra mattress supplied on request for AU$10 per night extra.

The resort itself is comfortable - but in need of a freshen up - stuck in the 90's...

Power was cut for one whole day to the federal villa rooms - so no aircon or lights between 8am and 8pm for a whole day!! Staff apologized as government power cuts were to blame. Shame that the rest of the resort had power and so did the rest of the island from what we could tell. Just our block of rooms without power :(

Breakfasts are reasonable value - but again you get what you pay for - food is good and service is friendly.

Resort is right on the beach so if you have kids you can switch between pool and beach without and hassles. Beach offers safe swimming in a netted of area. They even have a small soccer pitch with goals for kids and volley ball net.

Water sports available from in front of the resort if you are inclined.

Room Tip: Don't stay in Federal Villa rooms - other non ground floor rooms look to be OK in rest of the re...

Upon arrival we were about 90 mins early for check in. So we ate at the Lagenda Restaurant. I ordered the Nasi Lemak, which was OK, BUT upon eating the curry chicken my mouth was pierced by a piece of steel wire. The restaurant staff were extremely apologetic, and didn't charge us for that meal, and also gave us a free banana split, but the dining experience was ruined.

Their website advertises that the Deluxe Premium rooms have King size beds. Don't be fooled. They are just single beds pushed together. Sometimes they're made up to look like a real King Double by use of many blankets, and a mattress overlay, but this results in an extremely uncomfortable sleep, with bedsheets that don't even cover the bed properly.

Upon sitting at the beachside bar, it took quite some time to get the attention of staff to be served, at least a few minutes, which is inexcusable since we were the only customers.

The bathroom renovations look to have been done in a very rushed manner with excess silicone caulk about but things like warped doors not repainted.

And then there's the bedside fluorescent light that constantly flickers inducing an awesome headache.

Of course, they're charging for water where in most hotels it's free. Also an inexcusable practice in a hot tropical location, but I guess they're praying on the captive audience.

Just don't come here if you have a milestone holiday planned.

I stayed here with my sister and niece for 3 days and 2 nights. The service is good and friendly. The hotel overlooks a beautiful beach with less crowd unlike pantai cenang, therefore it is an ideal place if all you want to do is laze around the beach. The hotel might be far from the town but it is within walking distance to several restaurants and spas. You can rent a motorbike or car at a cheap price and go around the island or get a bicycle for shorter rides to nearby attractions such as water world and the duty free shops. One tip to tourists is to avoid going there on weekends or Malaysian public holidays to avoid the crowd.

Beds are extremely comfy, breakfast is decent and the beach is just beautiful! White sandy beaches, with a night bar open all days. Very near good restaurants, Langkawi Water World and Casa Del Mar. Service is good, price is decent for a 4-star hotel. It's at the tail end of Langkawi island though so you might be better off renting a car for a day or two to move around. Would come back again!
