Just come back from a 2 week stay at this resort, not very impressed.
On arrival the reception was not very inviting, very dated and in need of a make over, reception staff was not very friendly, she clearly did not enjoy her job.
Bungalow was average, bathroom in bad need of attention, in fact it was that bad i wouldn't even use the bath, had to shower outside every day in the out door shower area.
Breakfast selection was very poor, eggs from the egg station were awful, paid a lot of money just to have stale cereals and toast!
This place is very over priced for what it is, i would not recommend a stay here, we were very disappointed.

Dear luv2travelsurrey,

We apologize for not meeting your standards during your stay at the hotel. We thank you for sharing your constructive comments regarding the resort.

Even if most of our reviews complement our staff on their friendly and helpful demeanour, we do apologize if the front office staff in question did not make you feel welcome upon your check in. There is no excuse for bad service and I have had a meeting withal the reception team to make sure that it does not happen in the future.

We shall also pass your comments on the egg station and breakfast spread to the head chef.

We strive to improve our service and facilities in light of your feedback so that we can provide the backdrop of an enjoyable holiday for our future guests.

We stayed here in Beach view Villa for a week, the location, the grounds and staff were all good.
The bar at the pool was great, but looks a bit dated would be good if that gets a makeover maybe with some new chairs.etc The drinks were great as well we got served by Felix most times he was very good.
Whole time I was there I didn't know where the spa was, but prices were quite excessive compared to the main road spa's.
Food was good as well, buffet breakfast was delicious and fresh, well done on this.

More needs to be done re: Jellyfish sting prevention, some hotels have invested in stinger nets for their guests safety, also there needs to be a vinegar station by the beach as when I and others got stung only Lime's were offered by staff which felt largely ineffective.

Overall a very good stay and would definitely stay here again! :)

We stayed in the Beach villa in this hotel and its amazing right across the beach. The location of the hotel is appropriate. The rooms are clean and service is superb. Not much variety in food, but whatever we ate was tasty. The travel desk in the hotel helped us do our tours. Except for one rude lady in the restaurant, the rest of our stay was just perfect.

Room Tip: the beach villa rooms are amazing

My wife and I stayed here in one of the garden view villas.

The resort itself is low frills with not much beyond the pool and accommodation. They don't have water sports (you can hire stuff down on the beach) other than a tired looking sea kayak, the push bikes always parked near reception were apparently unusable (how much could new ones cost) and we didn't try the spa so I can't comment on that. The restaurant is basic but that is fairly standard for most but the best resorts.

However where the place does shine is the location - the area is itself is beautiful - watching sunsets from the pool/restaurant area is relaxing, and having the option of the chlorinated pool and beach right next each other is great as you can change from relaxing by the pool to the beach just by flipping your lounge chair around. Whilst we were there the island was pretty windy but the area island the resort was on was sheltered making it a much more pleasant experience, and the water itself was calm and very warm.

In addition to the beach location there was plenty of options to eat within a short walk, plus there were shops within 10-15 walk as well.

The room/villa was basic but quite spacious for hotel/resort and I liked the idea of the outside shower, it added a little extra to the experience.

Overall I think the combination of price and location makes this an good choice for a relaxing stay on Langkawi.

Room Tip: 217 was comfortable and quiet.

We stayed here for a week and wished it were longer. From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more helpful. We chose a sea front villa which was wonderful especially the outdoor shower. Pool(s)was great, plenty of lounges and the sea was gorgeous. There were jellyfish warnings but we swam every day with no encounters. The bar was a lovely spot to sip a cocktail (30% off before 7pm) and watch the sunset. We didn't eat at the resort, apart from breakfast which was adequate though nothing special, plenty of places to eat in town and the Indian restaurant next door was fantastic. Probably the only downside was the distance to town though cabs were cheap...about 8 ringgit each way. We would recommend this hotel and definitely stay again.

This resort is quite old and needs a little love, but as the price is reasonable it is fine.
The location by the beach is lovely and the walk into town is approx 1-2km which is flat and an easy stroll.
The meals at the resort are average and it is better to walk into town where there are some lovely well priced restaurants.
We hired a motorbike for the few days which allowed us to explore the island as there is not too much to do other than the beach.
Overall, a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front facing the beach are best.
