“Nice location, average service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

The hotel is only 8 minutes from airport, and 5 minutes ride to Port Langkasuka. The hotel is not printed in the map but rather The room was clean especially the bathroom but the walkway from the door to the bed was narrow and if you have large luggage bags, it might be rather difficult to pass through. The only lacking in the room is that there is no electrical kettle available, only upon request.

The breakfast served was of limited choices and Wi-Fi service is only available in lobby. I requested for a late check-out, extending from 1 pm to 4 pm, but the receptionist demanded to charge an extra RM100! Overall, the stay is average.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

Pros:
1. Location: Very close to the airport - would take about 5 - 10 mins by car.
2. Lots of small places to eat close by
3. Ample parking space if you rent a car
4. Good property - you can get a view of the sea, although I'm not sure how close it is to the beach
5. Courteous and helpful staff

Cons:
1. No wifi availability in the room. In order to use the wifi, you need to sit at the hotel reception, which can be inconvenient if you always like to be connected
2. Room service - We called room service and requested for a couple of glasses. After 20 minutes, when we didn't receive them, we were asked to come down from the room to the dining area and get it ourselves as the room service staff wasn't available.
3. If you're bad with directions and cannot read a map, be sure to remember the general area of the hotel and some landmarks. Locals often get confused with Bella Vista Resorts and Spa in Kuah (quite far away) and direct you there. This hotel is near the airport.

General tips:
1. Make sure you get a map of Langkawi. There is an information centre at the airport and the staff is very helpful and courteous. The information centre also has a lot of collateral on things to do. The staff is patient and will answer every question with a smile
2. The cheapest & probably the best way to get around Langkawi is by renting a car. We were 4 and needed a slightly big car. We got one for RM 100 per day. Petrol is about 20 RM per litre. If you want to drive around and explore the island, this option makes sense.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms facing the hotel entrance

The hotel is very near to airport. The room and toilet are clean and large. Great view from balcony. Airy and comfortable room. Friendly and helpful staff. Simple design and truly relaxing. Worth to stay.

Booked Bella Vista on the internet. Very apprehensive about it till we reached there. Nice airy comfortable rooms, great view of the sea, serene location, courteous staff. Truly a relaxing time away from the urban setting.

i stayed there for 3 days with spouse.. the hotel is excellent in outside looking.. good facility of car parking... nice swimming pool facing sea... staying at the pool site during twilight- it's owesome... complimentary buffet breakfast is good also with varities of food... location is fine if you want to stay in Kuah town. tourist attraction beaches are about 15-25KM away... if u hire a car for full time, u can go anywhere at anytime.

only bad experience in accommodation. i stayed in a delux room.. very small and quality is not rich.

The hotel itself was fantastic. The staff were very willing to help and provided a great service. The room was cleaned every day. They provided towels, shower gel, water for drinking. The breakfast was good, we also ate there for tea and it was good.
Only issue was the location - it is so far from anything, fine if you have a car, but taxis are at least 25 ringgits to everywhere!
