I've leant toward the positive side of average simply because of the newness of this resort, but perhaps there are better options in Langkawi?
The rooms are spacious, nice and new and shiny, but almost clinical in the 'whiteness' and sterility. I think they need to add something to give the rooms some character. There is not even a chair in the room - you do have a table and chairs on the verandah however. The bathroom is adequate, but the shower sprays on the toilet (no screen) - quite odd to build it that way in a new Hotel.
The location of the Hotel is not good. It somehow feels isolated even though it's only 5 minutes to town in a taxi. There is a good Restaurant next door, but aside from that there are no eating places in easy walking distance. It didn't help that it was extremely hot when we were there - perhaps if not so hot the isolation might not have felt as pronounced.
Staff were nice but lacking in knowledge - most questions we asked were met with the response "I don't know" - never a "I'll find out for you".
The breakfast is served on your verandah but don't order a hot choice - there is no such thing. It arrives stone cold, almost like it came out of the fridge. Cold rice, cold chicken, cold (undercooked) fried eggs - if it was hot, or even warm, it would have been great. Order the continental breakfast.
The swimming pool is good - but it 'closes' at eight - not sure why - I was walking around quietly in it at nine one night but I was spotted and promptly advised to remove myself. It can't be for any reason of noise control, because I wasn't making any noise - not any noise that could be heard above the excessively loud music the people sitting outside their room were playing, and they seemed to escape unpunished.
Staff were obliging when we ordered an early breakfast one morning, and they stored our bags for us on the last day as we had a late flight. Overall a good choice for clean amenities and a nice pool, but shop around for something with a better location.
