Currently under renovation and situated next door to unsightly building site. Wifi is only available at the reception which was across the road from the room where we were staying. Room satisfactory with good AC. However, shower not attached to wall and therefore difficult to shower. Good location on main strip. Pool ok, but nowhere to sit around it or...

Malibest is right in the heart of Cenang and on the beach. Walk out onto the street and plenty of restaurants, stalls, travel agents and massage places are within walking distance. It is also right on the beach so it's easy access to all the water activities available. Other than that, the hotel is just average. Service was fine and...

Stayed a little over a week at Malibest over New Year 2016/2017 and there are two positive thinsg about this concrete hotel building: it is situated close to the beach and it is reasonably priced. Apart from that, unless you manage to avoid the totally uncharming concrete building and get one of the much fewer bungalows, there is nothing else...

I've chose this resort based on the ratings but it was so much less than what I expected. we were located in the old building family room. The price was RM180 per night. not so cheap comparing to the beach chalets RM 200. But the service was terrible. First night when we want to sleep I found the bed sheets...

There are lots of good things to be said for Malibest- it's reasonably priced, in the heart of Pantai Cenang with its restaurants, expansive beach and it has a pool with slides. I found all the reception staff helpful and polite. We had a beach bungalow and it was cleaned every day and towels were changed. Bed linen was changed...

DO NOT STAY HERE if you are counting on reliable,curtious reception. The rudest staff you'll ever met and believe me-they WILL spoil your holiday mood and the thought will linger even after... I'm not coming back and hope that they will eventually close shop one day! No words to better describe the frustrating and annoying encounter as clearly indicated from...

Hotel is in a very strategic location. Close to airport. Beach is just few meters away and very nice well maintained. Very near to a row of wonderful restaurants (foreign and local delicacies) and food stalls offering local dishes also not forgetting souvenir shops. Lots of water activities going on there but be careful of the jet ski's.. Negative side...

“If you opt to stay at Malibest, do try to get a bungalow or a tree house. Never accept a room in the concrete building towards the street.”
