stayed for 2 nights across the street which was OK and basic, definitely value for money, although cleanliness is an issue and some of the fixtures and fittings are very tired....All in all, I would stay again...it has a large car park and is close to everything on Cenang

We sat by the beach, relaxed for an hour or so and had a drink and really enjoyed it. The view is excellent. The drinks were good, but it is a bit hard to get that wrong. The prices were good and the service was fine.

We stayed in a room across the street from the reception of the hotel and I must say this is the only place I've been to that doesn't provide wifi or towels. This is ridiculous as it's near the beach and you need a towel!! The room wasn't relaxing it was grey and the walls were a little bit damaged....

Does not worth your money. 1. Broken water heater and electric kettle does not working either. 2. Uncomfortable mattress. 3. Misleading hotel name. It's not facing or near the beach. You'll have to cross the busy road to go to the beach. 4. As other guess noted, no complimentary drinks. Hostel is a much better option than this run-down motel.

We booked through Air AsiaGo and the accommodation cost (non-beach front) is less than RM100 per night. Don't expect too much that it has great facilities/great food (Plasma TV with only 3 local channels, Hot shower, 2 glasses with 2 packets of coffee 3in1, no complimentary water, no kettle but there have hot water which you need to walk out...

The place is just Happening.If your looking for entertainment especially at night, this hotel is in the middle of the night life in Langkawi. The hotel was great. Staffs were friendly. Environment was good. The price of the hotel is way reasonable.

First of all , they don't ve any sea view rooms rather they 've only beach facing restaurant so the name is totally misguiding for people expecting sea view resort..quality of rooms are very average so do the food... Aircons make too much noise.. Hotel is located just in middle of Pantai cenang market and beach is @ walk away...

The toilet do not have a proper door, they give dirty towels, and it is very hard for u to go to the reception as it is located across the street from your room. You can actually spend the same amount of money at another hotel that is much more worth it.

Meal was patchy at best. We ask for fish to be fileted or at least remove the head but the "chef" could not do this. No bottled water available. The only toilet was broken. Waiter was pleasant but did not understand the menu. Needed three colleagues to finalise our order. Avoid if possible.
