“Should be the 1st choice in Langkawi if you are not seeking a resort”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Pros:
- 5mins from Pantai Tengah, 15mins from Pantai Cenang by walking.
- Clean, with pool and quick wifi
- Live band in bar with nice food.
- Choices of food and spa in 5mins by walk

Highly recommended, you go Langkawi for the beaches, not the resort.

Unfortunately I am not able to give a good rating to this hotel even though I was fully aware of other opinions before I booked my stay. The fact that I lowered my expectation and still got unpleasantly surprised says it all.

First of all, the room cleanliness was not the priority of the hotel staff. Since my arrival I had a feeling that the floor in my room was not cleaned for quite some time... and then it got even worse. At least two times my room was not cleaned even though I asked for it and notified the house keeping that I was leaving in a few minutes. They promised to return, but no one cleaned my room and replaced my towels. When I came back it was too late to do anything about it. What is more, there were ants on my desk. The room was quite spacious and that was probably one of not so many advantages.

One of the biggest problems was the noise. I thought that other people were exaggerating, but it was all true. One could easily hear the neighbours or people walking in the corridors. What was even worse was that the staff using a trolley late in the evening to transport suitcases to rooms. It was so loud that a dead person would hear it.
There were times when they ran out of food, drinks, cutlery or seats during the breakfast and it took really long time to do anything about it.

The pool was so extremely shallow that it was not comfortable even for kids to swim in it. There was not enough chairs outside and they were constantly occupied by the same people (even when they left for lunch or whatever it was). There was no policy of using the swimming suit while in the pool or it was not enforced. I saw people entering the pool in their clothes many times and no one from the staff reacted on that.

Some of the hotel staff were helpful and had the right attitude, but the others simply did not care.

Taking into consideration that I was on vacation and my goal was to relax and leave all the problems behind, I cannot really accept the level of service offered by this hotel. Too many times I was disappointed with the service or even angry with different problems and that is the last thing that one wants to experience during a getaway. Definitely not worth the effort.

Room Tip: Rooms with pool view are way quieter

a horrible cheap tacky hole of a place........

looks good from outside and thats the best part, staff have no clue, took more than 40 minutes for us to get checked in even with a printed booking confirmation from them.

they gave us the wrong room 3 times, we were booked into a quiet deluxe room but twice gave us standard rooms at the front of the hotel which is on a very busy road.

rooms are small, the air con switches off after 10 minutes use and then you need to remove and re insert the room key card
there is constant piped music in the corridors,
walls so thin you can hear someone having a crap in the toilet next door!!!!!!
internet signal is non existant even at the reception.
room key cards dont work after each use
breakfast items are not restocked once they are finished
rooms and showers dirty from last multiple guests
room cleaning consists of waving a vacuum around but not actually sucking anything up and straightening the bed sheet, rooms were often not cleaned until after 5pm.

hotel is far 20 min walk from the decent beach, crappy beach at end of the road though.

far better hotels around as we found out after making a few visits , they are a LOT cheaper along the beach strip. The locals were stunned at the price of Fave compared to normal rates
3x as much.

Fave...... just dont! An ibis is 10 X better.

Room Tip: room a back - front is ok if you like the noise of mopeds and cars tooting horns and revving engines...

Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights on 18th Feb 2013 and 22nd Feb 2013. The other dates we opt
to stay in Berjaya Langkawi Resort.

The hotel gave us the front road view room which comes with a lot of traffic noise. Walls of this
hotel is really paper thin as I got a lot of noise coming from the neighbor. Sound proofing is terrible in this sense.

Room and bathroom looked new and clean. No mini bar to store your drinks and chocolates.
Tea and coffee making facilities were non existent in the room as well.

Buffet breakfast was alright. Nothing special. Not worth the money you spend.

its is a normal 2 star hotel. dont go by the new looks. i had gone for my honeymoon was dissapointed. they gave me the front road view which was as good as staying in bombay with lot of traffic noise. the breakfast was the same everyday they dont even bother to change the fruits or juice. i would suggest to take better options available there. there are quite a few nice resorts costing a bit more but worth the stay. the beach is around 15 min walk but if you rent a bike or a car then no problem. staff was friendly. if u book this hotel make sure they give u the swimming pool view to make your stay worth. the room sizes are too small and no refrigerator in the room. they dont even given you toiletries in the bathroom. they charge extra for it.

Room Tip: only book rooms facing the swimming pool or else don't book at all

i stayed there for 2 nights. do not expect more for the hotel. it is just like the city hotel, the room is small even i booked 3 superior room. the pools is small as well!
i think u can get a better room in langkawi with the price u pay here.
the beach is not near. the hotel located at the end/beginning of the street of pantai cenang. so, if u don't mind walking around..
