“Great Location, Clean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

Stayed here for four nights in late March. Would recommend this place, though I wouldn't say it is a great value for money as I was charged 250MYR a night (vs the usual 150MYR quoted by other reviewers here.) I had no trouble checking in. Had some trouble paying in advance through their online system, but glitch was resolved in a few days and the management were accessible via email. Management also kindly let me check out an hour late as I had a late flight and I was unwell.

Pros -
*Clean, tidy, well-maintained rooms with AirCon and a refrigerator. They cleaned the rooms and changed towels everyday
*Great location. Can walk to Cenang beach in 2 mins. Located on a busy street which has lots of shopping and food options
*Flat screen Tv, tho hardly any viewable channels
*Breakfast included. Good selection of food, not just cerelas or toast.

Cons -
*Small, utilitarian rooms
*AirCon did not work properly in one room. Did not get fixed even after complaint to management
*Might be a little noisy depending on the type of guests in other cabins


Bottomline - Would recommend this place for location and clean rooms.

Room Tip: If traveling in group, ask for connecting rooms. More conveneinet and you avoid other noisy guests...

The best thing is the location. Rooms are ok, but ageing-holes in the floor, shabby blankets. Clean though.

The problems:

1. On arrival, no-one in reception at 7pm. Forced to wait 30 mins in the driving rain as the two attendants decided to go to McDonald's together, rather than one stay put. No response on the emergency phone number.

2. Worse than this, a party of about 10 people were staying in the room next door. They were up all night and played loud music from 3-7am. When confronted they didnt care. They looked like long stayers, there were empty alcohol bottles everywhere, so management must know. No overnight staff to deal with these problems.

Cheap, yes, but I'd pay a little more and get a good night's sleep.

This hotel may have been very nice when it started up a few years ago. The problem is the complete lack of maintenance. Our room had holes in the walls and holes in the floor. Because of a backfall on the showerfloor, all the water poured out into the room with rotting floors as a consequense. It felt like the room had been cleaned by a five year old and the bed blanket had stains on it and smelled funny. The noise from the street was disturbing. We had booked 6 nights here. We left after one night and will never come back.

The cabins is in a great position. Right on the Main Street of pantai cenang. Close to the beach. Great value for money, inexpensive. Don't expect any frills or additional extras. It is what it is. As you won't be spending much time in your room it is perfect. I would recommend staying here if you are low maintenance travelers.

We stayed here for 2 nights and would have stayed longer if they had accomadation for us. The rooms are very spacious and bedding comfortable. Bar fridge in rooms and gas hot water in bathroom which heats up straight away. Nice staff and very helpful. Not to far to the beach, just a couple of minutes walk. We hired scooter bikes and travelled around the island. It's a must

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice

Bungalows are well-equiped, big and CLEAN. Close to the beach! The stuff are friendly and helpful. The rooms have WiFi although the signal is poor sometimes. Overall a good place to stay at a reasonable price!

Room - bed is great, ample space to move around n to put your bags, shopping bag, clean..toilet big enough..internet us slow like a snail.
A very big problem with mosquito..there are alot of them..make sure u ask the receptionist for extra mosquito repellant, it will be next to the tv..replace it everyday like i did n it would be abit bearable, they change the towel everyday.
Location - not exactly infront of the beach, location is in the middle of cenang, quite happening.
Food tip- for cheap nice malay seafood,go to restaurant asiah few minutes of walking frm the cabin, directly beside the beach.
Orkid ria is overprice, but the food is great..
No point in going to kuah town for chocolate, do your shopping at the shop beside underwater world..not much price different, please do a proper mangrove tour with a guide very nice experience.

You pay the extra to get daily towel, quite big room, astro with good tv, a small fridge to put chocolate, juice..i think the hotel is value for money..just be prepared to wage war with the mosquitoes..
