Holiday Villa Beach Resort & Spa Langkawi
Ranked #22 of 105 Hotels in Langkawi
Reviewed 8 December 2012

I stayed here for 7 days 6 nights for a job training workshop.

Location: approx. 10 minutes by car or motorcycle from Chenang town (nightlife spot). There is transport/ shuttle service provided by the hotel with charges. Just request from the front desk. There are plenty of shops and restaurants across the road open till 9pm-10pm daily e.g. car & motorcycle rental shop, seafood restaurants, convenient store, spa, pubs, etc. Taxis are on standby in front of the hotel.

Distance from the airport - approx 15 minutes drive.

Room: spacious enough for 3 pax.

Bathroom: Spacious enough and may fit 3 person at a time. However, the water flow on the water basin is very slow.

Facilities: very basic toiletries (i.e. soap, shampoo, towels, face towels, hair dryer, shower cap), refrigerator, air-conditioner, cable tv (limited channels), room service, sharing iron & iron board (there is a dedicated room allocated for ironing shirts). However, they did not provide complimentary mineral water until we requested for it and there is no slipper, which is very awkward for a resort. Also, there is no free internet connection in the room. Wifi is provided with charges.

Sleeping Quality: No complain. It was very quiet, peaceful and excellent.

Staff: Friendly and very helpful. I have no complain on this. Thumbs Up!

Restaurants - Food quality is not the best but is okay.

Spa: Among the best you can find in the island i.e. Amora Spa. All the staff are indonesian, so the balinese massage is top notch. The ambience could not been better. Thumbs Up!

Attractions (approx distance from the hotel): Cable car - 20 minutes, Kuah - 40 minutes, Chenang - 10 minutes, Tasik Dayang Bunting - 30 minutes boat ride, Mahsuri - 20 minutes, jetty to Koh Lipe (Thailand) - Telaga Harbour (30 minutes)/ Kuah (40 minutes).

Activities - sun bathing, paragliding, island hopping, swimming (pool & beach), beach party, gym, beach soccer, beach volleyball,jet skiing,etc.

Overall Experience - Satisfied !

Room Tip: Go for the sea view room because the view is just wonderful.

After having read mix reviews about this hotel my partner and I were concerned about staying here. When we arrived we were pleased with the warm welcome and our rooms were clean so we were at ease however the reviews are right about the staff being rude, they are pretty average on the hospitality. A few quick fixes could be to open the gym before 10am for early guests, give free breakfast as part of the room cost and also free wifi, 8 ringit for half an hour is steep!

Overall it was fine for the 4 days but it did annoy me about the staff at times.

This hotel is value for money when u have kids..........great pool and a kids pool as well. The pool is huge so it never feels overcrowded and the kids pool is great! there is also a pool bar which is always welcome. The beach is clean and well kept and a quite location so great for kids. The rooms were very spacious, very clean, well maintained bathroom and we had a pool and beach facing room so that was a bonus. The breakfast is really nice with a large spread so there's something for everyone............and if u can get a table near the mini garden the kids love it!!! Staff are very good and helpful. Just outside the hotel is an array of restaurants serving malay, thai, western cuisine,,,,,,a couple of spas, a mini mart, tour companies and a place u can hire bikes or cars to cruise the island. So all in all its a great location and fantastic for a stay with kids...........i would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone. Value for money!!!!

Expectations were high for us when they charged 550 mal. Ringhet for 1 night and offered 2 night stay at MR 650/- per room on ground floor at one corner- 2 attached rooms ( 003 & 004) for Kids as well.
we tarvelled without reservation and checked in during Deepavali holidays.
Not very well maintained surroundings/ Garden.
Pool was good- well maintained.
Good beach side and proximity.
Food was good and B/F too was very good.
Staff were alright.
Rooms we stayed were not up to our expectations...rest all were OK except their gardens/ plain areas near sea front...could do better, but being a large property....probably it was not taken care very well...
You should look out for other options if you have....!!!

Room Tip: Pl. select one close to Pool at higher floor.

这是我在兰卡威住的3个酒店中的第一个(2011年6月)
it's the first one of 3 hotels we stayed in langkawi (june,2011)

优点Pros:
1.地理位置好!既临近兰卡威西南是最适合度假的区域-热闹的珍南海滩,又不是那么喧嚣。
good location! the area hotel located is close to the Cenang Beach.quiet.
2.性价比高,便宜条件又好!
so valueable . the price is acceptable and good facility.
3.漂亮而宽的沙滩
beautiful and wide beach.

缺点Cons:
只有一个缺点就是,去年我去的时候门口只有一个租车点,贵!我走了很长都没找到另外一个,只有认栽。
the only con is,there is only one car rental shop near hotel,no choice and expensive.

The hotel room looked very dated, but is quite clean. Housekeeping did a good job and kept the room clean. We asked for extra pillows & towels ( as we are triple sharing), all these were delivered quite promptly & without any fuss. However, the beds, as many have mentioned are rather hard. The breakfast is ok, nothing fantastic though.
But the location of this hotel is quite good, with all the food restaurants just along the same street. But if you want good food, it would be better to go to Kuah Town. Overall, I would rate this as a 3 or 31/2 star hotel rather than a 4 star hotel.

We arrived at the hotel impressed by the entrance but not by the rooms. They are large but very dated, the beds are big but very hard. What makes up for the rooms etc is the beach and the pool and gardens. We had a garden room which was directly onto the large pool and the beach, which was why we extended our stay. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, when we asked for help with the safe and a blocked toilet the staff were there to fix it within ten minutes. The breakfast was the usual buffet style breakfast and was always being re-stocked by the staff. The restaurants and bars were all good, especially the swim up bar. While we were there the hotel was being painted and beach furniture being restored, which can only help the appearance. If they offered the guests free wifi it would improve the experience.

Room Tip: A superior garden room as you can have direct access to the pool and beach and beautiful gardens.
