Only came here for breakfast as we were catching a trip from the dock. Food was cold, tough and atmosphere not enjoyable. Fairly expensive at 45 RM each. A fair amount of choice but not well done or well maintained. Coffee machines both not working.

Went there for my honeymoon and stayed for 2 days. The property is situated at the west-south corner of langkawi island at the end of tengah beach road. It is easily accessible from airport with taxi fare of 24-30RM.

We selected a garden view room which was decent having most of the standard 4 star facilities. The room was neat and clean. However, the way from lobby to our room was a bit too long because of the hotel architecture. The staff was friendly but most of them couldn't speak English. The breakfast had a lot of options for non vegetarians and I being a vegetarian had to rely on bread butter, fruits and juices. There were 1-2 vegetarian options as well but it was not worth tasting. The property has a nice swimming pool with a separate pool for kids. The view on the other side of the hotel is amazing.

Overall it was a satisfactory stay. Nothing exceptional.

Luckily i just stay for 1 night. Such a bad service.the bell boy didnt do anything and just walked away when customer came.we get the trolley & do everything on ourselves. The staff at the counter are busy chit chatting and complaining about their colleagues. Didnt smile at all. Room is still not ready even at 3 pm. Will never come again.

Old, in desperate need of a renovation. The reception staff are excellent, as are the bell staff but unfortunately the resort itself feels like a relic of the early 90s. The room was quite dirty, the carpet felt like it hadn't been replaced in 20 years.

The breakfast is pretty good.

There are many noisy families staying at the resort so I wouldn't recommend it as a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: Seaview is beautiful. Not all of them have a balcony, but if they do, you're pretty much sharing...

Grand reception hall. Great customer service. Massive Seaview room right above restaurant. Some with balcony. Some don't. Swimming pool is great.

Make sure hire a car if staying here as the taxi fare is dear. Massive free car park here.

Most punters of the hotel is local family with kids. Not a hotel for your honeymoon. Very noisy at restaurant (breakfast and BBQ buffet dinner). Initially plan to try BBQ dinner, saw kids running around the restaurant. So, we drove to Mangoes (Aussie family owned restaurant), Little Mexico (Chenang beach) and FatCupid (closer to the hotel - pantai tengah). We were spoiled for choices for good food.

Breakfast has good variety. Instant Coffee and tea served from the machine though. We drive to Chenang Mall for Starbucks after breakfast.

Stayed: July 2014
