A resort not to get excited about
On approach to this imposing frosted pink Mediterranean style hotel, it looked like it held good fortune and peaceful relaxation. It couldn't have been further from the truth. After a moderately quick check-in we wandered down to the two rooms we had booked. On this walk we passed various piles of dirty plates, half eaten food and other paraphernalia along the corridor floor. This was about 10pm.
As it turned out the one we arrived at smelt as if it had been freshly painted though one look at the peach walls seem to suggest otherwise and a run of ants travelling back and forth over the sink top in the bathroom. The other room our friend was staying in had a very strong aroma of cigarettes. We decided this wasn't acceptable and already knowing there were other rooms available (from previous discussion with the receptionist), we were given a bunch of keys and allowed to choose which rooms we would prefer. We decided on two adjoining rooms which were the best out of the 5. After settling into the room, on closer inspection, the towels provided were spotted with brown and yellow stains. It was the same when it came to a couple of the bed sheets. This was really disappointing as the bare minimum we would wish for was cleanliness even if the rooms were basic and worn around the edges.
The next morning about 9am, we went out and the food, plates, leftovers from room service etc were still in the corridor. In fact there was probably more. The pool was ok but not spectacular. There were leaves, twigs and cigarette butts floating in the water. It didn't seem to improve during the week we were there. There was only a fewer sun loungers available than the number of people wanting to use them. The slides and design of the pool were fun and good for children and there was a pool bar for the adults. My concern is that they never seemed to clean the pool. We came back to the room about 11am and the plates were still in the corridor which rice now scattered along the floor.
Other items we observed in the corridor outside our room were underwear and used condoms. I attempted to change our towels on various occasions with the hotel staff and even though freshly laundered (they were still warm), I failed to find one that didn't have a stain. We opted to buy our own towels and disinfectant to clean the bath/shower room. The toilet leaked in our bathroom.
The buffet breakfast was like a horror story. It was like people had never seen food before. The cereal was all over the floor, the cheese was man-handled by at least 10 people when I was waiting for my toast to come through the machine. The juice ran out and so did the bread and it wasn't replenished. It wasn't a relaxing care-free meal to start the day on. I would recommend getting breakfast out of the hotel as there are plenty of restaurants/cafes close to the hotel.
The hotel is about 3 minute walk to a lovely sandy beach and they have deck chairs available for $10 and they are worth a shot if you can't get a space at the hotel pool-side. Mid-week it is quieter and the hotel more bearable.
All in all I wouldn't recommend.
Unique Quality: Restaurant - Basic - room service, lunch and dinner available, Buffet breakfast - not great.
Club/Pool Bar - Alcohol is available
BBQ bar - lunches available
Massage place - $40+
Gym - basic but available
Volleyball court - in disarray. No one used it.
Pool with 3 water slides, kids pool, 3 areas all connected. Not particularly clean. No life-saver, would you your own responsibility.
Concierge service at reception area
No views to note - 3 minute walk to the beach, relatively quiet area.
Directions: It is near sandy beaches of Tengah. About 15 minute drive from the airport along the coast room that runs from Cenang Beach. About 40 minutes drive from the main town Kuah.
Beautiful hotel outside.
Rooms are quite large and clean but desperately needs new paint and furniture.
Unique Quality: Very large pool with jaguzzi & slide. PoolBar -exellent!!!
Directions: In between Pantai Cenang and Pantai Tengah ( 100 meters from the beach )

Not-so-cheap place to stay in Langkawi :-)
What makes this place so convenient, is its vicinity to Pantai Tengah and Pantai Cenang - about 5-10 minutes walk away.
Unique Quality: Many rooms in this hotel, so its a good choice if you are going to be there during any peak season. Other than that, the pool is supposedly the longest in Malaysia.
