Reviewed 21 May 2014

Why you don't want to stay here...

1st -The Staff, this one particular male staff (big size) is RUDE, not helpful at all and asking for a recycle paper or newspaper and he immediately say no.. I can see a pile of newspaper behind him..

2nd - I am expecting the room with MYR180 per night to be at lease clean and tidy, not even comfort bed.. Very awful room

You may stay in Chenang, cause great location but not this motel ..

Melati Tanjung was just a beach hotel and no other facilities were really worth the price. We have opted for a beach view hotel. AC in the room was quite an old one and was not working properly. 24 hour reception was not present. If you are planning to rent a car in Langkawi, there is no enough parking space for you to park the car. Location was good but you will definitely get a better hotel for the same price. There was no restaurant or pool for this hotel.

This hotel brings you straight in the mix of everything, and on the beach. -I mean litterally, you can walk straight onto the beach. -Now it is no Meritus Pelangi or a Casa del Mar, you are just as close to the beach, and let us face it, at a 4th of the price. What you loose is then; Service, no pool, modern facilities, and of course all the nice little extras such as the cookie jar at Casa del Mar, but I have a hard time paying quadrouple the price for those things. And compared to all other cheap hotels, which we have used at Pantai Cenang. This is by far the cleanest, and the most practical, not to mention the closest to the beach. This is my 'Trallers Choice' for Pantai Cenang.

Room Tip: The ones on the beach are the best, no matter, which floor.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Everything is fine except for the poor tv reception. The beach is near and near to restaurants and mall. Best stay here for beach activities, kids attraction at the underwater world. The cable car is also just 20mins away.

Check in and step in to the beach will be awesome. New building with reasonable price. Good shower and air-con room. Plus balcony facing to the beach make your day worth it.
The receptionist kind of friendly and talkative to entertain your need. Got storage place after check out and keep it for free. Forgot her name but the "glasses akak" should get compliment from management for her understanding service. We need more people like her. Overall the reception staff there very well welcoming. Keep it up for the ambassador service.

Room Tip: ask for sea view

We agree to stay.one month.in melati hotel instaed 140 RM we pay.120RM by night
Not one night my husband or.me.we.slept in one go. Soo noicy. They dont.have a nightgard so people from outside came in the middle of the night with motors or just drunk screaming having fun but not.funny for.us. Sometimes we had to ask them please be quite from 2/5am it went on and on. Instead they pay.a nightgard so people can have their sleep. Also the matrasspring made a little wound in my back. I put a pillow under. We didnt see any bugs in the matras but the matras was dirty. With the sheet on it lookes clean. Our little light was brokenthe second week and still till we check out they did not put another one
Aswell the cleaners dont speak any englisch. We had to clean our bed by ourselfs than we saw how dirty the matras was
They clean the bed 2 times in one month after asking and did not showed up. After all something positief the location is beautiful when u are on the right side We are easy going people not pickedy but they are only seeing $$$$$ not very symphatic

We arrived in Langkawi on an off-peak season, so we decided to wing it on accommodations instead of pre-booking something, and Pantai Cenang was the most obvious answer for something cheap and available.

The cabbie initially recommended a different motel but the budget rooms there were booked out. We wandered about 300m down the road and found Melati Tanjung, which had budget rooms available for RM85/night. Seeing as how it came with either a double or twin-bed arrangement, air-conditioning, a tiny old-skool TV and hot shower, there were definitely worser options, even if these rooms were across the road from the beach.

A roll of toilet paper and two soaps were provided per room, and towels were available on the beds in the room itself.

The room was comfortable and secure, and the service staff were good. All in all, no complaints, although the room really is a budget, no-frills option.

Room Tip: Cheapest rooms are across the small street that runs between the accommodations and the beach. Worth...
