“For sleep and Storage”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

We don't like to spend a lot on accommodation in beach places and this was great. We got the rooms which are not on the beach side and it was not bad at all. We were a mere 1 minute walk across the street to the beach. There are a lot of activities run by the hotel such as jet ski, banana boat etc. A lot of young people prefer to stay here and there is a lot of shopping around there. Alcohol is dirt cheap. The rooms are very basic so don't expect too much. i think that if they spent a bit more into building up the rooms it has the potential to be really great. Bathrooms are nothing to shout about too...

Stayed here for 5 nights, we stayed acrosd the road from the hotel, had no problem with this, ro was spacious, shower was warm, beds were very comfortable, tv didn't work but that didn't matter,you get what you pay for, at 120 ringits a night - i think- it was basic luxury!! Beach right across the road, near shops & restaurants, great location!

This hotel is highly recommended for a non-luxury holiday. For RM120nett per night, it was superbly value-for-money! Room was spacious enought for just the two of us. In fact, room came with 2 queen beds! The aircond and fan works well. Just open your chalet room door and it's just a very short walk to the beach (loads of activitiers at this area). Location-wise is good as it's located in the middle of the Cenang Beach. F&B outlets are abundant and well-scattered on both side of the road. parking are not too bad as well, though you have to park at the roadside (but I assume police summons is not an issue here). Bed are the foam mattress type, cheap but comfy. Had very good sleep during the both nights we stayed there.
Reservations was made 2 months ahead and they are fast in replying emails. No prepayment was required prior to check in. They even followed up with a phone call the day before to reconfirm your booking. Reception was good too.
The only downsides is that the room is quite sandy as bath mat are not provided and there is no place for you to wash your feet before entering your room. Bathroom are basic and small. Nevertheless, the hot water shower is functioning! They do not clean up your room (we stayed for 2 nights) and no replenishing of towels either.

Room Tip: Room with direct beach view and rooms on beach side - not much different anyway (just difference in...

I went to the AB Hotel on Langkawi at the end of June. The apartment was clean and the space in each apartment was clearly enough for 4 persons. The room facilities were modern/up to date and in a good condition.
You just had to step out of the room to be at the beach (10m).
The reception lady was friendly and helpful. Ordering a taxi by her was no problem at all.
Clearly to advise!!

Room Tip: A room directly located at the beach.

Stayed 5 nights in AB Motel in the cottages across the street from the beach. Rooms were nice and reasonably priced. Shops and restaurants on either side. Only downside is wiffi is only available in the lobby. Would reccommend for sure if you don't want to pay the higher prices to stay somewhere on the beach.

Room Tip: cabins across the road from the beach are much more affordable

We stayed on the road side for RM80 the rooms are large and clean and good value. Although you may not have the best view from the terrace for that price, it is generally quiet and just a few steps from the beach, and there are plenty of places to eat and a new shopping centre within a few minutes walk.

Room Tip: The RM80 rooms are in blocks of two with connecting doors, useful for people travelling in a group.
