Good place to sleep and have a nap during the day. Our room was literally on the beach (G1 if I remember correctly). Staff was friendly. Only minus was that because of the beach there comes lot of sand inside the room, they cleened room only once (we stayed four nights)...

This was the most expensive hotel I paid for in Malaysia, and it was by far the worst quality. I made the mistake of not booking a hotel in advance during the busy school holiday, so I was stuck with this place. It's cheaper than other subpar hotels around, but it gives you the barest necessities. A tv with literally only one working channel, a shower with hot water, and a bed. That's it. No thermos to boil water (and the water machine in the lobby was 'broken', so no refilling of water bottles with clean water). The room is ugly, walls are so thin I could hear every sound outside and in the other rooms. The only nice thing is it is right across the street from the beach, as I wouldn't want to spend any more time in the room than I had to. Oh, and no wifi, except a weak signal in the lobby (where other disgruntled guests gather to try to check email). All this, and the place was still selling out every night... I guess you don't have to do much when space is in demand...

Room Tip: get the cheapest rooms.. paying more for "beachside" makes no sense, as the other rooms ar...

This was our second year in a row staying at this motel. Our family of 5 (12, 10 and 5 yr old) stayed in one apartment (A12) quite comfortable for 3 1/2 weeks. We liked it here because of the cost and also because it is right on the beach. The room has two queen sized beds, very comfortable, a small fridge, place to hang your clothes and a small bathroom. We spent most of our time outside on the beach or sitting on the balcony (chairs and table supplied). We had a wonderful stay (like the year before) until 2 1/2 weeks into our trip. At that stage a woman from the hotel next door got stung by a box jelly fish and almost died. I was there - I witnessed it first hand and it was the scariest thing I have ever seen. The hospital is 1/2 hour away and it took the ambulance that long to arrive - it almost cost this woman her life. There are small signs around the island warning people of them and you will very rarely see a local swimming in the ocean. As much as we loved it here we won't stay in Langkawi again because of this.

Room Tip: We had A12 - while a good location we did have some trouble with people drinking both during the day...

We read a lot of negative reviews on this hotel so were cautious on booking here. On arrival we checked the room before confirming our stay. We were pleasantly surprised. We had a room on the beach with 2 double beds, a fridge, a patio and a clean bathroom for around $20AUD a night. We loved it! Would we go back, defnately!

Stayed roadside as it was cheaper but beach was 30 seconds away so made no difference to us. Rooms big and clean with hot water. TV has no English channels but we weren't there to watch tv and only wanted a bed to sleep in. Fridge in room which was nice, a little pricey perhaps for traveller budget but great value for money really especially if you don't want to stay in a dorm.

Also there is no pool or fitness enter but I can't take these bits off now...

Its the second time n it does fail to impress you.. A chick hotel aid clean washrooms n every thing at stones throw... Pretty near to the beach.. You get WiFi near the reception. The ride counter near the hotel entrance is indeed the cheapest(also owned by the same Ppl) . taxi stand is just in the front . if you are looking for cheap Indian food. Check out tomato nasi kandar Abt half km from this place... Will definitely go back..
