Federal Villa Beach Resort
Ranked #50 of 104 Hotels in Langkawi
Reviewed June 30, 2013

The federal villas shares the facilities with the better holiday villas next door. This means that the hotel has a great beach just minutes from the hotel, a huge swimming pool (with poolside bar, although the drinks are expensive and aren't very strong), tennis courts and restaurants (although i booked room only, so didn't try any of the food, instead eating breakfast at the excellent 'Cactus' just over the road from the main entrance).

The room we had was great; large, with a balcony, double bed, decent size bathroom (although the toilet cistern did leak occasionally), flat screen tv, fridge.

The hotel is a 20-25 minute walk from the main town and beach, so is a little out of the way, but taxis are fairly cheap and there are a few restaurants nearby as well as a supermarket, so it's not a problem. Service was reasonable, although being told at the end that I must present my receipt for the deposit in order to get it back was a little strange (this had been lost in one of my bags, eventually they did accept that they must have some record of their own!).

I went there with my family. Requested for King beds for all 5 rooms but was very dissapointed. Each room was given 02 single beds combined - very difficult to sleep coz the was a gap in the middle! The rooms which i stay-in, all have one kind of smell. I have to buy essential oil!!
The bathrooms are very old and the water pressure was very bad!

This trip was a disappointment. Will never again stay in this hotel.

Just returned from a 4N stay at the Federal villa. We were greeted with a warm smile at the reception and were upgraded to an apartment which was a stone's throw from the beach. Apartment was cosy and comfortable and thankfully without any carpet. I feel location wise this resort is one of the best as the beach is only used by the hotel guest, pools were very relaxing...an infinity pool is been constructed. Grocery store,restaurants just outside the main gate. Watching the sunset from the resort is a sight not to be missed. My boys enjoyed the water sports in the beach thoroughly. Overall we had a nice and relaxing stay at the resort.

Room Tip: Our apartment no was 636 but should choose the adjoining rooms for a better view.

We were at Federal Villa but I am not sure if there is a big difference between Federal Villa and Holiday Villa. Federal Villa is just an extension of Holiday Villa. The Holiday Villa rooms are probably closer to the lobby, a bit better maintained and closer to the swimming pool. That is my opinion.
Federal Villa was good for the price. I would say only a little bit overpriced. Quite centrally located on Pantai Cenang/Pantai Tengah. Great access to the nice beach and no different from Holiday Villa. Food is good at the restaurant and the best part is that there is a grocery shop right outside Holiday Villa. Also walking distance to restaurants, shopping malls, and other shopping places. Not as good as Kuah town but good enough. Taxi is available to any part of the island and they also have longer period taxi (4 hours+). I didn't try wifi but my phone did not connect to roaming here. Not sure what was the issue.

Overall, the stay was good.

Had a stay at Federal Villa for 3 nights. No bed bugs for me. It was a comfortable stay with all the facilities of Holiday Villa at our disposal at half the price. Housekeeping is good and prompt. Beach is kept clean daily and the grounds is spacious enough for all guests. Hope the good efforts to upkeep the budget section of Holiday Villa will carry on. Just that the wifi is a paid service which is perplexing. Worth returning to this hotel.

For GOD's sake never ever consider this hotel, even if you get an offer of staying here for free. Anyway you will be gifted with a lot of insects on your bed, infection by using the wash room, dissatisfaction, irresponsible and arrogant staff and many more, at the end of your stay. You stay here at your own risk.

Room Tip: A good tip is, to consider this terrible rating seriously. Its not just my personal experience but a...

Located on the Pantai Tengah beach front is the best part of this hotel. The beach and the swimming pool is excellent. The rest of the hotel is average. Rooms are old and some plug points, lights dont work. The flush in the bathroom was also not working properly. I bought a wifi coupon and the wifi in my area of the hotel did not work. I called the reception and they asked me to come to the lobby and use it. The staff tend to be lazy and grumpy at times. Worth it for the beach... Eat and drink outside thou.
