“Worth the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

I personally enjoyed my stay.. Food wasn't supper but acceptable. Beach is nice and the pool needs some renovation but still is ok
Room had few bugs but it didn't bother us a lot..
My suggestion it's worth the money only if ur not spending ur time at the hotel. There are lots of stuff to do there. Rent a scooter and discover the island.

Good amenities with big pool, restaurants and on the beach but overall the hotel is dated and in desperate need of a makeover – especially with all the new development which seems to be happening on the island. Room decor was stuck in the 80s and the bathroom condition was not great - looked to have had many patch work repairs done over the years but never properly updated. I think what frustrated us here was in the foyer there were TVs showing pictures of all the other resorts in the Holiday Villa chain and they all looked very modern and up to date! The one thing that didn’t disappoint in our room was the view from the small balcony out to the sea (apart from being slightly obstructed by the new LaVilla Poolclub & Restaurant).

We had read several reviews before selecting Hotel Villas so knew a bit of this going in but I guess what disappointed us the most was the quality/standard of the hotel is not worthy of the cost. Especially when they then want to charge over and above for what is pretty standard in most other hotels/ resorts like the use of the new Infinity Pool and Wi-Fi!

We opted to eat off the premises as there were plenty of food options over the road or down the street at local prices and most with FREE Wi-Fi.

We wouldn’t stay there again but, to be fair, got the sense Hotel Villas was on par with most other resorts on Langkawi i.e. they all seem expensive for what they offer and not equal to comparative standards elsewhere in Asia.

Fair price and beautiful pool/beach area. Overall, however, this hotel definitely deserves an average rating. Staff unfriendly and not helpful (i.e. sleeping behind the desk when I tried to check out early). Frustrating extra charges such as the Wifi and infinity pool. Rooms clean, but in need of updating. No "resort" feel at this hotel.

Pros: Private beach, reasonable price, ample parking, good location and hotel setting/decor, clean beach, jet ski and parasailing available at the same beach.
Cons: bathrooms could be maintained better, breakfast average (maybe below), housekeeping service not reliable, infinity pool charged at RM25/psn, may have jellyfish in sea (if you are unlucky, but according to the locals it is rarely the case).
My stay here was a memorable and good one, as the beach was just a walkaway from the room and average priced room, which I feel could be maintained slightly better especially the bathroom. It would have been a perfect stay, if not for my disappointment on 2 occasions:
1. Breakfast tasted average, and slow to refill at some point during the morning, as trays were seen empty. They have Western, Asian, pastries, but not a wide selection, albeit enough to fill the growling morning tummy. P.s. This is during a low peak season.
2. Room air-conditioning was leaking at about 9pm, and so called housekeeping, which took at least a half hour to arrive. Inspected the problem, and "fixed" it apparently with no apology whatsoever, however within 10 mins, it was leaking all over the room floor again. Called housekeeping, and they said the will send someone over, but none in sight after waiting another hour. Called the front desk, and she was apologetic and offered to change room, but decided not to pack and unpack all my stuff again as we were checking out the next day.
Overall Holiday Villa is a decent enough place to stay, and I would return to this exact spot, but hoping management would improve in the areas lacking to make it a great place.
P.p.s Check out Yuan Spa opposite hotel. Review available on Yuan Spa.

Room Tip: Room by the pool is alright, not noisy on non-peak seasons.

Stayed in the resort for two nights during our visit to Langkawi in first week of April. It was a relaxing place with respect to location, but need to improve on few areas.

The best things about Holiday Villa are: private beach with relaxing shacks, big swimming pool with a smaller jacuzi,Infinite pool with Bar & restaurant, spacious rooms and scenic balcony if you opt for correct room i,e facing pool/beach. Had a memorable relaxing time in Holiday Villa facilities.
However, following areas need to refurbished, interiors of rooms which looks bit outdated, VEG menu and housekeeping tasks. Think twice/thrice before ordering anything from VEG Indian course like Maharjas Samosa, Mix Veg with Chapatis both were much below the expectations. But tried English breakfast that was good with Muffins, Crossiants & Breads. Housekeeping people take long to turnout may be the Villa is quite huge that could be the reason. But atleast expect to clear used plates lying outside rooms.

P.S: True Veg Indian lovers can dine out it has many nearby Indian restaurants.

Room Tip: One facing swimming pool/beach

Dear M/M Eakalev,

Thank you for taking valuable time to write us a review on your recent stay.

We are most appreciative of your positive comments on our rooms, beach and pool.

We thank you for your comment on our food price and noted that certain items on the menu are on the higher price due to imported ingredients like Sirloin Steak, Rack of Lamb etc , however we still have very reasonable price dishes like our home made "Pizza" at RM29.90 for a 12inch pizza and our Asian menu price ranging from RM21.00 to RM40.00 per main dish.

We sincerely hope you will give us another chance by patronizing our outlets should you make a return trip to our resort in the near future.

Once again thank you for your comments and warmest regards

Staff at check in counter difficult to deal with and unhelpful. Booked the room via wotif for 4 people only to be told had to pay extra MR90/night to cover 2 "extra" people, even though i specifically booked for 4 people (and paid premium for this).
Staff taking bags to room were helpful
Lack of complimentary wifi at a resort of this price not good enough. There were 4 of us, so it cost me MR160/day to cover internet access for 4 devices (24hr access per device is MR40)
Hotel guests had to pay MR25/person to use the newer pool, which seemed very odd given already paid for the room and naturally would expect access to the facilities without further costs.
Staff in restaurant too busy talking amongst themselves and my wife and i had to walk up to  the bar to get served, while 4 staff sat there talking amongst themselves and ignoring the only 2 customers they had
Rooms were very dated, and AC did not function well and was very noisy. When i reported this the noise issue was resolved to a degree, but the AC in general wasnt effective.
The bath did not drain well so when having a shower the bath would fill up so you were standing in 30cm of water.
Rooms had an old mouldy smell to them.
Beach was quiet which was nice, but lot of litter around.
Overall i would not stay here again.

Stayed April 2014, travelled with family
