Reviewed 25 July 2016

In Langkawi, there are plenty of accommodation options. I will suggest places close to beach rather than in Kuah town. (After all, you are here for the beach). In that respect its location is good. Beaches are at walking distance and there is a good food outlet right in front. If you can have your car, parking is no problem. The reception is not open 24 hours so you will have a problem if you want to check-in at late hours. It is green with plenty of plant & trees in the place so you would encounter a few bugs during the stay. You don't get daily room service. Rooms are of good size and comfortable and at a quite place. Will recommend the place to anyone on budget.

We stayed for 5 nights and it was ojay but not more. Rooms too big without windows, had no electricity for a whole day and also wifi did not work for 3 days. Bed sheet had some holes, was clean but ridiculously thin. The bathroomfloor was always wet after showering and the sand stayed at the floor. There is s laundry service in the motel and nearby a good foodcourt and some supermarkets, even a scooterrental. Beach within walking distance but quite far away - for the price you cannot expect much but in some qays they could give more effort to the whole arrangement. 5/10 with one eye closed

We experienced an over-supply of bedbugs during our stay last year.
We presented the creatures to the owner and his wife. First, they disputed the findings. Second, they assured us that each room would be fumigated during the summer slow season.
Obviously, no action was taken, which leave us to believe that their
assurances were fabricated and duplicitous.
Their lack of regard/respect for travelers /customers - local or international - is troubling.
These are two adults - the owner and his wife - that have turned a blind eye to the comforts of their
guests. And they knowingly continue
their despicable disregard.

This hotel is, pleasant. The rooms are very large and offer great a/c. The location is a 15/20 minute walk from the strip of shops and restaurants.

My issue was with the staff, when we arrived they didn't have our booking and the guy who seems to be the boss had to check his emails to see we'd booked through adoga. From then he was never to be seen. Our shower wasn't attached to the wall and so you had to hold it, to make matters worse it was cold. Three times we asked the staff to assist but no one ever came and by the end we gave up. It seems they are primarily a laundrette and don't know what's going on.

The room as i say was nice apart from the little cockroach that appeared in the bathroom one night from under the toilet!

one of those hotels which have suffered from lack of maintenance, taps leaking, toilet not flushing, lights not working,air con old,tv didn't work' etc,etc. no actual front desk with maps or info, call into the laundry, pick up your key from some very uninterested girls and you won't see anyone again. disappointed.

Room Tip: don't bother you'll dissapionted
