Let me begin by saying that Federal Villa is now managed by Holiday Villa, which is next door, and seems to have been refurbished to some extent.
We chose a 2-room apartment at Federal Villa because we had a party of 4 adults and 2 young children. We wanted to be somewhere on the beach, and within walking distance of restaurants and convenience stores. Federal Villa did not disappoint.
The rooms were rather cramped but sufficient. Maintenance was a little poor (the door of one sliding wardrobe didn't function, one of the curtains was hanging off its rails a little, the toilet flush worked poorly) and cleanliness could be better (expect to find dirt in the corners of the shower and spots on the kitchenette window) but it wasn't anything I couldn't live with for a couple of days. I'd say it wasn't any worse than other 3-star Malaysian hotels.
The main thing for us was that the beds were clean, the sofas (sofa beds, by the way) were clean, and we didn't have to pay a bomb for a group of 6.
There's jet-skiing and parasailing on the beach, which is cleaner than the now-crowded Pantai Cenang that we have been staying at for years. The only thing is that the sea at Pantai Tengah (where federal Villa is located) is deeper and a little more rough than at Pantai Cenang, where it is calmer and shallower than here--this may be a drawback if you intend to stay at Federal Villa with very young children.
Federal Villa shares the large pool and coffee house with Holiday Villa. The breakfast was overpriced but luckily we found a little place just opposite the main entrance to Holiday Villa where you can have both a Malaysian or Western-style breakfast at a much more reasonable price.
Within walking distance are restaurants and cafes for varying budgets, including a restaurant run by an award-winning chef.
