“Great Stay for Afforable Hotel”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

I don't understand why they call this hotel a resort, maybe name only! My idea of a resort is swimming pool, on the beach, restaurant, maitre'd, etc. The rooms are simple and small, that is why we booked here. Breakfast is the same every morning-egg omelet, cereal, orange juice, toast to name a few. We booked for 3 nights but after staying here one night we booked it another five nights. I loved the location-near town where the restaurants, shopping, resorts, activities and bars are. Maybe only a five minute walk. The laundry is just across the street. The people at the hotel desk and the people serving breakfast were very friendly and nice. For the price you can't beat it!

Room Tip: The room closest to the breakfast area has best wifi. They have beach towels if you asked for them...

Great Location....everything is just nearby
2min walk to beach...
Nice service and easy on your pocket...
No luxurious.....if you want that...this is certainly not the stay for you....
I am sure will look forward to stay here on my next trip.

By the time,I finish this review,there would be changes in the hotel.
The 2 min walk to the beach ...yes.But the rooms that faces the beach will have a hard time,since they are constructing a wall.So with those nice balconies you would end up staring a wall.

Location is fantastic.You have rooms accessible to the beach,and to the city.In fact,you can walk to Pantai Cenang,which is more like a hip place with street shopping,bars,restaurants,malls and crowd.
Pantai Tengah is much more quieter and cleaner.

Those for water sports,can head to the Cenang for much cheaper deals on the rides.
The water is sandy,so u'd end up with sand all over and beneath ur swim costumes.

We rented a bike and went all the way for the cable car ride.It's def worth it.A nice scenic ride and the views from the cable car galleries are also very beautiful.
And do go near the air strip and ride as the plane lands and takes off at Langkawi Airport.It's a great experience.

Bike rents: 35 MYR,

It's fairly a safe area,you wouldn't feel worried in the dark.A little bit poorly lit streets.

The rooms are basic and clean.Carry mosquito repellants. They were constructing during our stay.So the mornings were quite disturbing.

Breakfast included package is actually nothing.You get ur toast,jam,butter,juice,cofee,tea,omlette and one dish prepared ,rice or noodles.So it def isnt worth it,but you just mightn't find anything open in the morning,and you have to make do with it.

Their wifi area,or the common area,is where they serve breakfast.Good place to mingle around with the guests.

Overall satisfied with the choice.

Room Tip: rooms either face the beach (no view) OR the common garden with facing other rooms.

I visited Langkawi island on October 2013. This place was just amazing !.The manager was very sweet and friendly.The rooms were very clean and tidy.Our room was just a 2 minute walk from the beach.The beach was just wow with hardly any crowd. What we missed out was the breakfast ! Had we booked directly through the main tropical resort site the breakfast would have been inclusive ! The neighborhood was very peaceful far away from the maddening crowd. It took us around half an hour from the jetty and we came to this place by a hired self driven car . This place was very close to the place where boats left for island hopping. Lastly I would say that I really enjoyed my stay here :) :)

Having stayed for two nights in a not so good hostel down the road, we found this place and decided to book for two nights. We extended our stay by five more nights as this place was a good find.

The staff are very friendly and Rosly (sorry if I spelt that incorrectly) was excellent. He helped explain a lot of things not only about langkawi and Malaysia but his background. If you get a chance ask him some questions.

The rooms are fine and the beds are ok. The best thing is the location, just two mins to the beach and ten into town.

The food at the restaurant was also very good.

Would I stay again, yes.

I love this place! We had a room right on the bush path to the beach. So peaceful,clean and pretty. The breakfast is great too ! The staff are sooo friendly and polite ... Always smiling and happy to help. I wish I could have stayed here longer!
This is the best part of the beach too as no party's or clubs close by so you can get a good sleep but close enough if u want to walk into the town . Also taxis are cheap & easy to get from here .
I will def come back to this spot I hope it doesn't change ! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

We stayed 4 Nights and were 100 percent happy with our stay. The resort was well maintained, clean, located in a quiet area near many car rental locations. The staff were friendly and welcoming, breakfast was excellent, they made fresh eggs however you wanted and brought them directly to your table each morning, various juices, toast, tomatoes, fruit and cakes(they had banana bread... I love banana bread)..... etc. all servevd outside in an open-air lounge area.
We had a rental car to get over to the other areas of the island and to tour around, but the price of car rentals was so incredibly cheap so it was okay.
Such warm and nice staff, the owner was there every morning greeting us and sent us off with a five minute long wave... Was really nice to see such a caring person and how much passion he had for his resort.
Overall great stay and no complaint would stay again!
