Although I had a valid booking by bookings.com for this hotel they did not have a room for me. Apparently they overbooked a few rooms (5 rooms to be exact). I am in the hotel industry myself and know this can happen. The odd thing is that I called the same day to confirm on my late arrival and my room was confirmed. When I got to the hotel they could not even find my reservation anymore. So what happened in that few hours with my booking?? The BAD thing was how this was handled. First, the receptionist started to lie to us which the reason was for not having my room (a water pipe broke...yeah right!!). When I confronted him that I am sure this was a lie (broken water pipe is a common way to excuse an overbooking in many hotels) he got all nervous, denying it. Second, they could not find another suitable hotel for us to stay. They ended putting us in probably to worst hotel of the island. Lying again telling me its a good hotel. When I then called the Bella Vista from the other hotel, they promised to call me back with another solution (which of course they never did) and to have the manager call me the other day with an explanation (which of course he never did).
This is just a HORRIBLY managed hotel. I do not even blame it on the INCOMPETENCE of the front desk, as they told me that the management did not give any guidance on what to do in this case besides getting rid of the guests. If you book here (especially in peak season or weekends) you run the risk of having to sleep under a bridge.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

At this price that you pay, you can expect no surprise although there are decent amenities available.

One thing that's good about this hotel is that its really near the airport, roughly 5 minutes drive. However, newbies in Langkawi are opt to make a big round trip in locating it for the first time, merely because of its misleading address which the google maps kinda fool you.

Breakfast, decent.
Pool, 1feet height.
Service, 4 out of 10.
Cleanliness, 6 out of 10.

Staff were extremely rude upon our arrival. After stating that we had a reservation for one night, our reply was "you what?"
There is a shop, which is closed, selling about 3 packets of crisps and some warm bottled water. A restaurant, which is also closed and a swimming pool which is completely shaded from the sun.
The room is spacious, although very old and the bathroom is filthy.
The hotel is in the middle of nowhere so if you haven't rented a car, you will be stuck.
Definitely not worth the money and not even worth it for a one night airport stay!

A well equipped hotel which felt like it could be nicer than it was. Rooms were very good and clean. They all have balconies overlooking the pool area which was also excellent. The restaurant was average and breakfast was functionable, probably bettter to get there earlier rather than later. The reception staff seemed helpful although I had booked one night through booking.com and asked for a further night at the same price but was told I would have to book through the website again. A little odd. When we paid the first night I was then informed that I would have to give another deposit for the second night. We didn't do this as just said we had no cash at the time and they pushed it no further, but again a little odd.
The area is ok, but you really need some sort of vehicle if you are going to stay at this hotel.

the service by the hotel is average but the rooms is spacious and clean and the price is really acceptable,it's so near to Langkawi airport just like 5 minutes by the car and also it's near by pantai cenang beach which is so great area for the night life and full by restaurants and spas and shops,the swimming pool is nice , but the breakfast is not really good it's just ok cause it's the same everyday and they don't change it .
