I was in Langkawi for a retreat with Yoga Now, and got a room to myself. It was well-sized, had a functional shower/toilet, a desk with kettle and cups/glasses, fridge and TV (didn't turn it on though as I was not interested in television). There was airconditioning, but I really adored the option of leaving the windows open and switching on the fan instead.
The owners and employees of the resort are very courteous and warm, always asking me how I was, where I was going, and if there was anything they can do to help. I asked for a hairdryer and got it immediately.
Wifi is available but not stable at all parts of the resort, so surfing at the front desk is your best bet. Owner was concerned about the signal issue though, and did something to strengthen the signal soon after my feedback.
The bay is quiet and sunsets are beautiful. Go onto the sand, and you will see thousands of tiny little sand-colored crabs trying to escape from you. Lovely.
Toiletries are not provided, though they have big towels and soap. Bring your own toothbrush etc.
A wonderful choice for those who can accept resort/chalet style of accommodation (no room service). There are two eating places within walking distance - a Tapaz restaurant with buffet (closed on Tuesdays) and a local fisherman stall (need a few Malay words and a whole lots of charades) that serves wonderful bargain steamed fish and seafood freshly hauled in by the local fishermen who sit around cheerily chatting over kopi and a smoke. Ask those at the Resort and they will tell you where it is.
However, if you are the sort who prefers room service, needs a posh restaurant around the corner, and does not welcome the occasional insect/gecko in your room, this is not for you.
