We had the biggest room ever, it felt like a suite. Parking outside was very easy and lots of it. Reception was very welcoming and explained everything. We forgot the slip of paper with the date on when we went down for breakfast but they were fine and just requested we bring it later. Breakfast was buffet style and really had everything you could think of to cater for different people. It was my husbands birthday and they bought a frozen dessert style cake for him at breakfast. There is a lovely rooftop bar and pool but not great if you’re scared of heights,

Absolutely loved our stay here. Everything was perfect... the room was lovely, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was superb, with so many options. The rooftop swimming pool is wonderful, with beautiful views of the bay, and the bar is a lovely place to start each evening watching the sun go down. The highlight has been the staff, who have been so very very lovely, kind, friendly and helpful - they really have made our stay a very special one. A real pleasure to recommend the Goldsands...

So booked here for 10 nights (before Malaysia went in to lockdown MCO) was looking forward to the pool and gym. Emailed them before arrival to check them facility where still open. They said no. And no cancellation or chance of discount. Which was very disappointing so I suggested a room upgrade which was granted, so thank you for that. The executive rooms all come with breakfast which we though was great given everything in langkawi closed down. What a great help. Checked in, nice room. Called for breakfast on day one and because we didn’t have a voucher we had to pay for it, £5 per person! Which was a limited menu. Even though it should have been included in the room. So we went to super market, stocked up on food for the 9 remaining nights, we thought they will easily give us an extra fridge as the hotel is literally empty. Unfortunately they wouldn’t let us have one. We ordered room service once, waited over an hour, called them back to find the order was never taken. Ordered the same on another night and it seems they raided their freezer and deep fried what ever they could find. One day we left the hotel for food, came back and asked for a knife and folk. The gent insisted he sent it up to the room even thought I asked if I can’t grab it now because my food is hot! Needless to say I managed to find an old rank plastic folk in my bag. They finally arrived about 25 mins later. Also everyday we put do on disturb on the room but that was ignored everyday but the maid as.

All day dining restaurant employee in charge on breakfast duty was going to charge us RM25 for breakfast each though reception and booking.com indicated breakfast was RM20 each to be paid at the reception of restaurant.

At 9:42am when breakfast was scheduled till 10:30am, there was no replenishment of items emptied despite request until much later with no information to guest once it was replenished. This staff is a terrible one and useless for hotel business. We asked for butter and were told the hotel has no stock of butter. The cakes were super dry and the bread was lime rock. Coffee was super diluted. And oranged cut like staff have no clue how to cut a simple orange.

Tried the hotel for the first time. Totally disappointed with the service from the front desk.

Firstly, the hotel lost my reservation. When i check in, the front desk said that they do not have my reservation even though i have made full payment online and have confirmation of my reservation. When i show the front desk my reservation confirmation, then he said that they do not have the room i reserved. I reserved a deluxe room with king size bed but they gave me a twin room which is actually cheaper. On the hotel website, deluxe/superior room is stated that the size is 40m sq. with city view and astro channels. What i got is much smaller with frosted window and no astro channels. It is not as per their website.

Furthermore, during check out i was given a bill for amount less then what i have paid online. Why is there a discrepancy? i have to ask them to change and rectify the bill which they only did reluctantly.

Something is horribly wrong with the management of this hotel. Will never go return to this hotel ever.

The views were outstanding at sunset, so pretty and perfect to share with my partner. Service needs some work as we found the staff under the counter on phones when we arrived. I think they tried to make up for it as our cocktails were stronger than normal however we still enjoyed them all the same.

Stay 2 nights here. The room is spacious. Got bathtub in the toilet. Bed is comfortable for me to sleep. The LCD tv is huge but the one in my room not functioning. Haven't had the chance to try the breakfast as the hotel not in full operation yet. Rooftop bar is nice and can see the best sunset view from here. The food during my function are superb

Very peaceful and relexing atmosphere when arriving at this very larger than life hotel in the heart of Langkawi. Spotless, courteous staff, choice of good breakfast and rooftop restaurant. Enjoyed 15% residents discount on meals. Choice of Vegiterian and NonVeg.

Absolutely fantastic stay at the Goldsands Hotel.
The hotel is in an excellent location in Kuah (near Eagle Square, the main jetty). While the hotel does excellent food (breakfast is very good, a wide and plentiful selection of Western style and Malaysian food) there is a for court nearby and a night market which runs 2 days a week

The hotel provides all bathroom necessities and the rooms are extremely comfortable - one of the nicest beds I've slept in within a hotel for a long time. There is a stunning view from the rooftop pool and the gym, and you get a voucher for a complimentary 15 minute spa treatment too.

The sky bar is great and offers a limited selection of alcohol (Langkawi's restaurants are generally 'dry', although you can get beer from local shops).

Tea, coffee and water are refreshed daily. The rooms are large and very clean.

Everything is in easy reach with a car, and for specific tours you can get picked up from the hotel.

The staff are friendly, efficient, welcoming, and as it was my friend's birthday during our stay they even arranged a cake which they presented at breakfast and sang happy birthday.

If you're feeling fit there is a fab jogging Park nearby which offers beautiful views of the jetty especially during a 7.30am run!

We would definitely recommend and return, thank you so much, Goldsands!
