“Average hotel with amazing swimming pool”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

We stayed one week at the 4 points but were a bit worried after reading some negative reviews.
We got upgraded to a deluxe suite. However the word suite would only apply to the size not to the charm. It consisted of two large interconnecting rooms with balcony.
The hotel and the grounds were well maintained but lacked atmosphere and charm.
The main selling point would be the supersized pool. The beach was ok but the sea looked dirty and was infested with jelly fish making the swimming pool the only option. We went for one day on a snorkeling trip to the nearby marine park but the lack of fish and equally dirty waters made Langkawi clearly at the bottom of my list of tropical islands .
The restaurant served nice and cheap meals and the stay in general was pleasant.

The hotel check in time is 03:00 pm. When we arrived, our room is not yet ready. Therefore, we leave our luggage at the lobby with the receptionist. Bear in mind, you need to pay a deposit of RM 100.00 for the room key and refundable upon check out. There was no welcome drink given.

We continue with our journey to explore the island first. When we arrived at the hotel at night and our luggage has been sent to our room which is efficient. However, when we enter our room, we find out that the basic toiletries such as shampoo, bath gel, conditioner, etc is only for one person usage whereby we have three persons in the room and we paid for extra bed fees. There is no face towel in the bathroom. The extra bed does not come with blanket. The extra pillow cannot be found in the room as explained by the receptionist. We need to ask the staff to verify all these just in case the hotel blame us for stealing. I think we called up a least three times to the receptionist on our first night there in order to get the above issues settled. The room Wi-Fi is weak and on and off it get connected and cut off.

The deluxe room was big and so is the bath room. There’s a big LCD TV hanging on the wall. Our room come with balcony facing the dining hall. The swimming pool is huge and the same goes to the beach. Beware of jelly fish. It’s a quiet beach. Location wise is not good due to its very far Kuah town and Pantai Cenang. There is no restaurant or food stall or shopping mall besides the hotel. We rent a car just to travel around the island. There are plenty of parking lots in the hotel and it’s free. The hotel is 15 minutes drive to the airport.

Buffet breakfast was good with lots of choices but on the last day of breakfast, we found out there’s fly inside this four stars hotel dining hall.

Room Tip: Stay at Pantai Cenang and rent a car to do around the island.

We come to Langkawi and stay at the Sheraton every year. This is our second visit this year but we didn't bring the family this time. We decided to spend two nights at Four Points before going to the Sheraton for the next 10 remaining days of our stay, in support of the owner of the Sheraton to try out his new resort.

I'm not going to compare the two resorts, they are so totally different in many ways and Four Points was never set up to be the same, it was set up so it made staying here a bit more affordable.

We are here to relax, we have done all the tourist things many times, we needed a place to swim, nice view, relaxing atmosphere, good sleep and to read a book! We got that! The pool is amazing, so big and apart from the occasional leaf that blows in very clean, the view is also good especially with a storm blowing in as all the colours change so dramatically. The only problem with the pool is that there is no shade, not a problem for us at the time as there was cloud cover all the time but would certainly be a problem without it.
The staff are warm and friendly, although at breakfast being our first time here and unsure of how it worked and who to give our room number to, we were greeted with a warm smile but from there had to figure the rest out on our own, luckily it is not much different to the Sheraton so we had an idea anyway. A huge selection of food catering for all types of people and religions and friendly chefs to cook our omelette fresh for us.
Our room was very big, and a king size bed, but it was only to sleep in anyway as we spent our reading time outside on lounges overlooking the pool and ocean, and being on the ground floor we walked over to have a swim then came back to our room to dry off in the sun with our books!
Looking forward to seeing our friends at the Sheraton tomorrow but am enjoying our stay at Four Points as it suited our needs.

Hotel rooms are large, no nearby restaurant nor supermarket, whenever we needed something from supermarket, we had to pay about 36 RM to go and come back by taxi, air conditioninning is very very noisy, room service is only till 11pm, there were colonies of termites in the room( tiny insects that eat wood) so we were scared that some of them might get into our luggage and come back with us home ( that would be a total disaster) - we informed the reception and they sent somebody to spray the room twice, but the tiny ones kept coming out and building piles of wood powder around the room, it was not possible to change the room as the hotel was fully booked.


Now for the good stuff. ... hotel staff is friendly, the price is average, rooms are spacious bathrooms are in good condition with separate shower, the swimming pool is amazing - it is really big. ....

I don't think I will come back again to this hotel

Booked this hotel for a couple of days stay in October. Check in ok no problem, large open space lobby.
Now I have read some reviews about this hotel, but one thing that makes me laugh is people who come to a tropical location and not expect to see insects, roaches and the like in their rooms. The clue is where you are a tropical location.
We arrived at our room and were impressed with the size and layout or the room. The bathroom is huge with separate shower. First problem only bath towels no hand towels or flannels. There was the usual toiletries you would expect in any hotel.
Next problem the switch for the air conditioning was loose, but it still worked. Overall the room was adequate for our needs, with flat screen tv and a sofa as well as a large double bed and plenty of hanging space and draws. Very little in the way of literature in the room about the hotel or even anything about what could be seen on the island. (This did not worry us too much as we were going to stay around the hotel anyway).
Good nights sleep, yes you right beside the airport but can not hear the planes, also you can not hear other guests which is great. Went down to breakfast. Well firstly no clue as to where or who you should let know your room number for breakfast but eventually found someone. I have to say that on first impressions there is a good selection of hot and cold food, with cereals, croissants and different breads. I do like to have roti chani for breakfast when in Malaysia, but what was served was like cardboard obviously frozen. There were about 4 chefs that I could see, surly it is not that hard to have one preparing fresh roties.
During breakfast some staff started moving tables though the food area along with chairs table clothes and crockery and cutlery setting up a special table, for what we saw later were some managers from an outside firm that arrived at mid day. We were eating breakfast at 8.45 so there was no need to lay this table so early. This table was being layer while there were tables to be cleared.
When we arrived at the hotel 3pm the previous day outside the room opposite to us some guests had had some room service and had finished with their tray and as is customary left the tray outside for collection. 18 hours later it was still there and I had to go to reception to ask for it to be removed as it was starting to smell. This is where the hotel is lacking. As with

IT might not be up to your expectation but it is for me. Went there for 4 days 3 night.It more for me as it the place for you to stay at night only as most of the time you will be outside shopping or going to different attraction.

The resort is alright. kinda small and no street shop nearby so you have to travelled to have your dinner etc. But it's just 5-15minutes away only from Padang Maksirat or Cenang or AirporT

The comfort room with garden view.

ADV: Big and Spacious room with Big comfy beds.Toilet is nice with shower and bathtub. Free Wifi!!! SafeBox. Not much noise even from the planes althought its near to the airport.

DIS:The garden view is not a view at all!! A lot of Mosquito and houseflies. Only mineral water is free in the room! The pool is big facing the sea. The resort look kinda old with the door of the room!

But the beach and the sea is not as what you may expected. Not much view! Not really maintained well

Have more mosquito coil/repellent in the room!!!!

Not worth 4 star. Recommeded if on low budget but wanted something nice ambience and no crowd or noise.

Room Tip: Any room view is all the same as the view is not that great
