Ive seen bad reviews all around this resort. First of all on my trip with friends (Not recommended for Couples), this is the best resort at pantai cenang. What else one can imagine when beer + beach + beach near to resort can give.. Its the ultimate enjoyment! We went there (6 of us) for a short vacation and booked... More

Stayed last month in treehouse for three nights. Location is fantastic.room a little, ok very, dark. Biggest problem was the smell of bats that must live in walls!!!! Indian restaurant that is at front of hotel was surprisingly good. Get a beachfront room. Two steps to powder white sand . Forget the smelly treehouse though

When we got to the hotel we checked in and were taken to our room. Within a few minutes of being there my wife said this room is not acceptable. The bath tub was disgustingly dirty and the toilet was also dirty. It looked as if someone had stood on it with dirty shoes the last time it was used.... More

The rooms at Malibest Hotel are a bit dark for my taste. The bathroom is clean and the rooms are sufficient in space. The internet is slow during the weekends and better early in the morning before sunrise. No restaurant attached to this hotel and parking is by chance on the main road. Service is quick and the workers are... More

This is my 2nd visit to langkawi for year 2014. We choosen this resort because located at Cenang Beach and my room just 2 minutes walk to the beach. Cleanliness is good but the staff need to alert about DND sign. Wi-fi connection at lobby was excellent but in the room very weak.

The location is great, right on the beach, you go to sleep at night being serenaded by the waves lapping the beach. WARNING Be very careful of the tiled steps and the tiled walkways, they are lethal when wet, I had a bad fall and there were others who obviously shared the same fate. Go and enjoy but please be...

Four of us booked the deluxe wooden chalet. Pros: The view was magnificent as it is on the beach. Easy access for those who look forward for the beach activities. Very very close proximity to the restaurants and stalls-you wont starve. Room was pretty spacious and tidy. Cons: the rooms are pretty tired. Very bad lighting, we have to discretely... More

We stayed here on 2 separate occasions in December. The first time we were in the beachfront deluxe rooms. They are basic but they offer a large room with a fridge, fan, air conditioner and tv. The view is nice. You have the beach at your doorstep. They are serviced every day. The downside is that they are attached and... More
