We had a holiday in Langkawi for 10 days and booked this hotel because it had mediocre reviews for the vale and we thought it was going to be ok; but it was far from a nice stay. The big selling point of the hotel is the nice beach with only footsteps away from it but for what you pay and for the filthy rooms you get, it's not worth it.
We arrived at 11pm on the 17th Feb 2012 and I must admit greeted nicely and the passage to the beach looked good. However when we got in the room it smelt of cigarettes, the reason being it still had ash in the draws. The first impression was, it was a small room with little amenities, which is ok for a budget hotel, all we ask is for it to be clean.
The worst of all though, no matter what star rating, no matter how limited the stay is, we found a used razor in the bathroom with pubic hair all over the ground and the tap wasn't cleaned as there was toothpaste spit all over it. YUK PEOPLE YUK! We also woke up in the morning to find cockroaches on the floor and woken by excavators working outdoors which we weren't told about.
We were far from relaxed, we didn't feel clean thinking that we'd catch a disease and the staff were slack and didn't give 2 hoots about it. They did say they'd clean the bathroom straight away which they tried but they only used a paper towel and wiped it down, no detergent or cleaning agent, which would be a standard cleaning measure.
It was a totally bad experience and wouldn't recommend the hotel to anyone. It's such a nice location and the hotel could have potential, the staff really need a good kick up the backside.
Go and find another hotel for a little bit more money
