Recently stayed at Rebak for a week and thoroughly recommend it. If you are looking for a cheap Asian holiday and a bit of action, don't go there; but in saying that if you are looking for a good quality place that is very affordable as well as thoroughly relaxing then this is the place. Sure there are planes flying overhead, but they're not distracting. In fact every time I saw an Air Asia plane in the air it reinforced the fact that I was laying on the beach instead of flying with them.
The staff are what make this place. They are so attentive and go out of their way to make sure that your every need is being catered to. The food is excellent and whilst it may be dearer than some other places in Langkawi it is far from exorbitant. Happy hour is the piece de resistance. The Lepak bar from 6:00pm is the place to be. Great waiters making Great cocktails at cheap prices by the beach means you can't do anything but unwind.
Another thing of interest is that people who stay here are from such a diverse background so you don't get the Phuket or Bali effect of feeling like you are still in Australia, and the yachties from the marina also increase the variety of people you will meet.
If you are tired and jaded and want a relaxing break then you can't go past Rebak. My other recommendation would be not to use Air Asia to get there.
