Beautiful Balinese gardens, polite friendly staff, tired but clean rooms, tasty breakfast. All amenities and restuarants within a short walk away. Days spent lounging around overlooking the quiet beach, having the occasional massage and daily cocktails served by Adi (bar next door) - I didn't want to leave..... :-)

We stayed at Sunset Beach Resort for 5 nights in March. There were some things we liked about this place and some things we didn't. One thing we liked was the location. It is right on the beach at the far end of Pantai Tengah. This is a quiet stretch of beach good for walking and swimming. It's also easy to access restaurants and shops on the main street. We also liked the breakfast. Eggs were cooked to order and served near the beach. There were lots of options available. Finally, we liked the grounds; they were well maintained and beautiful.

Unfortunately, there were several things we didn't like. Our room, a Sunset III, was not great. It was very small and not particularly clean. The bathroom really needed to be updated. There was an old tv in the room that didn't work--why not remove it? The AC was loud and the door could only be closed with a key--no doorknob--very inconvenient. It felt like a cheap motel room; we expected more for the money.

We also didn't like the fact that there was no wifi in the room, only in the lobby area. This just doesn't make sense. It is such a small investment for a hotel to add a couple of routers so guests can get wifi in the room. Today's travelers expect this.

I wouldn't stay at Sunset Beach Resort again. Although we liked the breakfast and the location, the rooms are just not worth the money.

Me and my Husband were on a holiday here recently and stayed at Sunset beach resort. It has the amazing sunset view just as in its name. its just so picture perfect. They have provided us with breakfast, you can just enjoy the breakfast just besides the beach.

We stayed 5 nights at Sunset Beach. The garden and bungalows are nice and the price is okay for the standard.

There is lots of jet-sky, parasailing and banana-boats in front of the Hotel... it can get very noisy and busy and the nearby Government Hotel now dumped large sandbags on the beach. The breakfast is pretty dull and most of the desk-chairs are broken. I really don't understand why people here say it's relaxing beach area.

We arranged speedboat transport to nearby Koh Lipe with the lady from the reception. We were told that the boat leaves very early in the morning. So we asked if we still can get breakfast and we were told that we can get a 'fast' breakfast short before our pick-up to the ferry. But when we came to the breakfast pavilion there was nobody there and we left without getting breakfast

We also reserved a room for our last night, when we came back from Koh Lipe. And again the lady told us twice that the reservation was confirmed. But on our arrival they gave the room away and they had no vacancies. So we had to find a room by ourself. Well, the ladies at the reception seem nice but very chaotic and not well trained.

We didn't like Langkawi at all… most parts of the beaches are private and it's a real package destination. The rainforest is nice but there are no real walking tracks… only paved roads for cars, sky bridges, cable cars, noisy mangrove tours, shopping complexes etc. So if you are into this type of vacation it might be the right island for you.

I stayed only for couple nights there. It is a beautiful and relaxing place. Simple, but provide all the basic. Breakfast is good, right next to the beach. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Great value for money.

We were there last January and stayed for 2 nights. We had the room which is the nearest to the beach and quite happy with it. Our 3 years old son who has his first time on the beach love the place do much.

The bathroom are spacious with basic amenities, mattress are old and not very comfortable but for a shot stay I thought it wouldn't kill my back. On the second day, the air conditioning unit is leaking the water but the maintainance staff repaired it in less than an hour.

The resort serve only breakfast, the food wasn't great but if you willing to get there early you might get the best seat which is practically to right on the beach. My son and I enjoy the walk along the beach early in the morning.

If you are in Langkawi to enjoy the beach I guess you'll be happy with this place, the duty free complex, restaurants, shops and everything is just a walking distance.

I recomment this place if you prefer simplicity over luxurious decor. We paid only RM280/night and I thought it is reasonable for the room we stayed in and the overall experience.
