“It's cute.”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Federal Villa is under the management of Holiday Villa so service is still good. Yes, the rooms under FV are a little old, but there really aren't any problems... The beds are nice and comfy, the rooms are clean, the bathroom was clean and the hot water heater was working properly, the toilet too... Air-conditioning was working well and it was cooling. I don't see anything wrong with this place with the price that I paid for. The rooms were cleaned on time, and when I asked for anything they came immediately... I liked the hotel's location, it was great, far from the noise of Cenang Beach but close enough to drive/walk to. It was just a little scary at night because you have to walk through the gardens to get to your room and if you're superstitious you may get scared :) Don't forget to bring insect repellent though because of the jungle that is close by there are some mozzies going around sometimes. Overall great stay, lovely location with nice amazing and quiet beach (except after 5pm when watersports guys come onto the beach and make so much noise), happy friendly staff, great pool and nice food.

I stayed here recently for 3 nights and our room was clean and spacious. The swimming pool was nice and the location of the hotel is right on the beach. We also used the gym a few times which was pretty big and clean with air con. The hotel is located a 20 min walk from town, but we also ate in the hotel restaurant which was reasonably priced. I would recommend people to say here.

Beginning of September 5 days of heavy rain, it felt on the furniture during the night, drop by drop. During my stay I was not able to wim, big waves, a red flag.
the room was only separated to the next room by a very thin wooden door, and next side were 5 guests to sleep in: Not my party:
Swimming pool was under construction, and noise to hear.
But noise came too from a water pump next to my balcony:
The day I wanted to leave to the airport and to get in touch of the bell captain sending me
a person to carry the lagguge because you have to go through a long path to join the reception I was told " it rains".
The scenery of the beach is very nice; only see and islands in front; it should be nice if you have good weather.
An amount of reception people is available, they do the best they can, but the result.....

Room Tip: BETTER SLEEP IN THE more expensive SISTER HOTEL " Holliday Villa"

i liked more Langkawi than any hotels, because no really good choice for any hotels there. blue sea, nice beach, good people.
This is hotel very very far away from cenang beach it means from shops and cafe. if only take taxi, around 6-8 local money.
then we see first our room it was very dirty, i cleaned by myself.
bathroom was so dirty its like somebody died there.
but we was so close to sea, so for rest things we just closed our eyes.
so i want to come back to langkawi, but i think next time i will chose another hotel, may be

I booked a three-night stay at this hotel for December 2013. It says on the website that cancellation is free up until a week before the stay. I cancelled my reservation last week (three months in advance) but they have gone ahead and charge my credit card. I emailed them to advise that I have cancelled the reservation and asked them to process a refund. No reply from them after one week! Terrible!!!

i know i should have expect this. It's really low maintenance. once you step into the room, you can smell the mouldy and wet atmosphere. The smell is always there unless you open the air-con for longer time. The telephone line is not functioning well and we can't call the operator. In the end we have to go to the lobby again which is very far. The good side is the distance to the beach. Very near to the beach. This is very convenient. The swimming pool and kids pool belonged to Holiday Villa is also the advantage. You have to consider pros and cons when you decide your accommodation.

I knew not to expect too much for $50/night (sans breakfast). FV appears to be an older section of HV. The assigned room was on the ground floor with easy access to the beach. A bit far from the pool but glad that was the case. I think a new pool wasn't being built and the noise does get a bit excessive.

I would have felt a bit better if an in-room safe were available.

Don't mess with the buttons for the A/C controller. I tried to adjust it once and it took two hours for the AC to blow cool air again.

If you plan to stay in your room other than the sleeping hours, pick another joint. If you aren't planning to spend a lot of time in your room, it's a fair balance between what you pay and what you get.

Rent a car if you can. Rented a Proton at the airport for $50RM a day. And trust me, it's worth the $. Not a whole lot of traffic on the island and gas is less than $2 RM per litre. The moment you step off the plane, you'll be greeted as "boss" by different car rental establishments. Don't expect too much but do check the conditions of the vehicle. What we consider "unacceptable tire threads" (by Western standards) are absolutely "lo paul bum" by the locals.

The hotel is about 2 to 3 km south of the Aquarium. From what I observed, not a lot of taxi either.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the "Langkawi" section. It's the closest to the beach and you may e...
