We had lovely experience with the hotel. The rooms are spacious and the hotel is very clean. The breakfast is excellent. The hotel staffs are very helpful and always greets the guests with a smile. There is a nice family run restaurant next to the Hotel and they serve very good food.

Room Tip: Room facing the swimming pool - you can have a view of the outside greenery as well.

Stayed here on 2 dec for 2 nights. Summarize it for you.

Pros
1. Clean
2. Simple Swimming pool which works for the kids.
3. Staff was helpful and friendly.
4. Problem with sink was solve quickly. Called and they came quickly.
5. Breakfast was simple and sufficient. 1st day was Ok for me and the 2nd much better.
6. Infront hotel have a convenience store and laundry. RM $4 per kilo.
7. Have a safe.
8. Plenty of carparks just infront hotel.

Cons
1. Bed was small. You get a Queen size bed only and not King. Single not a super single. For the price normally you get a King or super single.
2. No kettle and complementary coffee or tea. Hot and cold water dispenser available outside though near the lift lobby. Slight inconvenience and the watery is not that hot if you require to make milk for young ones.
3. Walls are a bit thin. You can hear sharp or loud noise at times.
4. The pillow was a bit stained. Don't Look under the pillow covers. Ours accidentally came loose.
5. Superior room should have a small table and 2 chairs? Room was big enough for it. Room was very simple. Queen bed. 1 mirror table with chair. 2 small bed side
Table.

My summary
The hotel was clean and look new. But for the price paid expected a bit more in-room amenities.

I guess it gets no better for that price paid near pantai tengah unless you want to say near kuah. Or pay more for the pricier resorts on cenang.

Beach - pantai tengah was 2 mins away by car. Walk probably 10 mins. Read my Beach review.

Pantai cenang shops walk at least 15 mins. Car 5 mins. Not as close as i thought.

You need transportation staying here or taxi to go to even nearest attraction underwater-world. Unless you don't mind a 15-20 mins walk.

Stayed here for four nights while in langkawi. This is a busy hotel in a good location. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Hotel is vibrant and pool area nice. This is a new hotel but looks ten years older probably due to amount of visitors. We stayed in standard room which is small but comfortable for two people. Only cons were the cleanliness and noise. Cleanliness was good but not excellent as our floor in the room was very dirty when we arrived and even worse by time we left. Also the towels especially the ones used for swimming pool need to be replaced as they were all stained. Out room was very noisy both from neighbours, people in hallway and some rattling from ceiling that did disturb sleep a little. Anyway these are all minor things and cleanliness can be amended easily by hotel overall it's a nice place to stay with good atmosphere.

Fave is located around 150m away from the roads leading to the two beaches, A reasonably new hotel, looking clean and bright superb match with budget traveller.
The rooms are clean but rather basic, with limited storage facilities, although with safety box available in all rooms. No minibar or fridge, but free Wi-Fi with turtle speed in room (but average in hotel lobby hall). The pool is a good length, allowing you to get some exercise swimming end to end, not just standing in one corner. (note: These the best place for capture the nice hotel building photo with blue sky or paddy field view)
Limited breakfast choice even less than Kuah's town 3stars hotel, but with a different selection each day, and with good sized mugs for coffee.
Fave provided tour counter with helpful lady staff, the lady running the shop and tour counter - book your tour through her where in-house guest may get cheaper price around RB motel package. I would certainly recommend. Besides, Fave also near to the island hopping pier or the parasailing activity beach..
Shuttle service to beach is limit twice a day is great gap to improve. The limited 2units of lift may also hang your time if your stay in the 2nd floor and above, where you may need share with the house-keeping staff also. Limited 1units Coway's water dispenser each room floor may save your budget to buy mineral water. But overall a great new hotel to stay and chill-out in the tax-free island..!!

Room Tip: Ask for pool view room

After a few weeks of ok to dodgy hotels we finally came across this clean, neat and tidy hotel. The service was great, the rooms were clean and a decent breakfast was included in the price. It also has a great pool. The location is a 5-10 min walk from the beach and nightlife.

The room given to us was at the corner of the hotel and the view was amazing. As it was at the corer, we had view in 2 directions. We had breakfast at the hotel and the food was good. There are many options to choose. The pool in the hotel was awesome. They provide towels too. Room was clean, they provide hot drinking water in the common area.

The only problem we faced was, the aircon was not good and the room was not cooling fast. We complained the staff they tried to fix it but in vain. So they gave us the option to change room.

There are many restaurants in the walkable distance from the hotel. There are indian restaurants as well. Beaches near by.

If i am going to langkawi again, im going to this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a corner room.
