My family & I stay there for 3 nights (family room) which cost RM260 per night. The main reason that I booked Sunset Beach Resort was there are two queen size beds enough for 4 persons despite read some previous bad reviews. The environment is natural filled with greenery plants and water features. The staff are very friendly & helpful. The ladies at the reception are readily to provide any information regarding Langkawi. The air-con and mini freezer are cold enough. Room are clean daily with clean towels.
There is a small area with two chairs & a small table where you can chat and drink. You also can do your laundry as you can hang them dry outside with hangers provided. The room is basic and is not carpeted which do not give off musty smell. The beach is nice, windy and less crowded. The sea water is not deep despite strong waves. The sunset view is spectacular. My two children love the beach and have a great time playing there. I must say that the starry night at the beach is quiet and romantic. You can walk beside to the next door bar close to the beach, enjoy the music and drink, at the same time listen to the splashing of waves. You can also book the discounted island hopping & mangrove tour at the reception counter. The mangrove tour cost RM120 for adult & RM80 for child while the island hoping cost RM35 for adult and RM25 for child. You also can call for massage at the beach which cost RM80 per hour (full body massage). The resort is at prime location where you can easily access to airport, Kuah town and other attractions. There are also restaurants and mini supermarkets nearby.
The only bad experience is there are few cockroaches crawling around in our room and coming from the toilet on our arrival! I have managed to kill about 10 cockroaches in the first two days with the “powerful” insect spray provided, I did complain to the reception and it was attended to promptly. Finally the cockroaches are no more seen from the toilet. The cupboard door in the room is broken and the furniture are rather old. There is only a small 14” TV with only 3 local channels to watch so you really need to plan your night activities. There are also mosquitoes but not many as I thought. We have told the reception and they have given us spray and electric coil. The breakfast is healthy, simple, unlimited tea and coffee, fruits, butter, jam for your toasted breads. But they only serve only one glass of orange juice and two eggs per person. You can also request different cooking style for your eggs (really fresh eggs!).
Overall, I have a pleasant time staying there with my family and my two kids really enjoy playing at the beach. Resort will be great for those who looking for a no frill stay on a beach, more suitable for couples.
