"Nice hotel near the beach-good to have rented car"
Nice hotel near the beach, very good views. However, need more directions to be provided along the road from the airport to Kuah town, specially since the hotel lies on the opposite side of the road. Since it lies atleast 4-5 kms before Kuah town, it might be a good idea to have rented car. Also, the fooding options are minimal - the car should take care of the same. Other than this, this hotel has a great view, an excellent set of people as its staff. Way off from the hustle bustle of Pentai Cenang, it offers a getaway to enjoy the tranquility.
The hotel appears not to have been refurbished for some time. The decor and furnishing feel old, but otherwise the hotel is fine in its price range. It is however close to the main mosque (Al-Hana Mosque), which does mean it may disturb your sleep with its calls to prayer for those who are not Muslim or who are not used to the calls (however it did not appear to be too loud). The staff were friendly, pleasant and helpful. It has a restaurant but its offering was rather limited during my stay, and could really do with a few more choices. Overall there was nothing seriously wrong to complain about, but nothing to rave over either. It had been a functional but pleasant stay for me.
"Decent affordable stay in Kuah for families/groups"
I think they must have recently done a facelift or renovation of their rooms, cause it looks pretty good and presentable. It's a big space, almost 1000+ sq ft for the 4 room apartment. But the maintenance of the room seems lacking. One Aircond wasn't functioning well, a few downlights were out, the heater was wayyyy hot. But if you can ignore those items(which we could), then the stay itself wasn't bad. Breakfast was poor in taste, but if u just want to eat "something" then it's fine. Fried noodles, porridge, toast, coffee and tea. Maybe cause we went during Ramadan and super low season.
The front office folks are happy to help, but aren't trained, so they sometimes don't know how to help in some situations.
Kuah, in southern Langkawi, is the main gateway to the islands by boat, and houses the largest ferry terminal in the region. This former fishing village is a duty free port known for its shopping, which ranges from traditional street markets to modern shopping malls such as Sumadra Centre.
