If you're looking for somewhere cheap (ish) to stay and are planning to be out and about for most of the time, this hotel fits the bill. It's crumbly about the edges (though apparently being renovated). It was fairly clean, but don't expect much. The airco in the room was loud and not particularly up to date. OK for a few nights, but definitely not ideal. To be fair that is reflected in their price.

"We stayed four days and really didnt want to leave"
The hotel is situated on a fantastic private beach. The hotel service is one of the best we have exerienced, friendly, competent professional and helpful. The rooms are spacious and compfortable, situated a little way up the mountain from the beach.
Lovely comfortable rooms but if you are English then the TV is useless! Only 10 minutes from Cenang and Tengah beaches and only 6 miles from Kuah so well placed if you have transport. Sound proofing is inadequate so if you are next to a noisy couple or family you may request to be moved - as I was. No fuss and room service food is very good. Smoking rooms with balconies are fabulous. Not the cheapest but my second visit and will stay again.
As we had arrived just before official check in time (3pm), and our room wasn't ready, we were given complimentary drinks which we took in the Breeze Bar, we took this opportunity to take in the stunning views which surround the hotel. We were then pleasantly surprised to receive a room upgrade...
The grounds of the hotel are very pretty, lots of water features, two swimming pools and a rock pool to relax by. We even saw Eagles feeding from the sea!
The hotel was very well maintained and all the staff very friendly. Our Room was a good size, well equiped, comfortable, housekeeping of a high standard, everything you would expect to find in a five star hotel. However, if like me you tend to over pack, maybe take a few extra coat hangers, clothes storage was limited.
We chose to have the room service breakfast, which was good value, generous portions with a good selection of choices. We noticed that not many people ate in the hotel in the evening, maybe this was due to menu options and five star prices. We found a local restaurant by the harbour which also offered shuttle bus back to hotel in the evening.
On the days we decided to explore the island, Reception arranged taxis for us, which arrived within a few minutes and fares were confirmed in advance of our trip.
Excellent value for money. Situated in midst of Rain Forest with adequate access to quiet and private beach. Friendly and caring staff. Geared towards family needs. Due to its location, you will need a car to explore Langkawi.
