Despite the reviews this place surprised me. For a budget hotel, it exceeded expectations. Last year I stayed at the Taj Vivanta and thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. This year I was meeting up with friends who wanted a more central location and boy was this central. Everything was at hands reach and the rooms were clean and spacious. For the very discerning, things may not have met their expectations. People pay budget prices and expect 5* treatment. I would recommend this place without reservation. Just be open minded about things.

Stayed 1 day here just before departing to Koh Lipe. Walking distance to Cenang Mall and the Underwater Aquarium. Otherwise, basic budget hotel facilities. The room is spacious, fairly clean as it was dusty. The bed are comfy.

I am very disappointed with this hotel, staff can hardly speak English, Room was very basic and smells like cockroaches spray at all times, forget about the green colour swimming pool which is full of local kids with full clothes on, breakfast is definitely a no no no I recommend stepping outside and happily spend RM 10 to 15 to eat something that is actually fresh and not going to make you sick, if you are thinking of having a late checkout even for 30 minutes don’t even bother, beach is common thing where the hotel is located and there many many other options around with less than half the price, internet connection is not bad but you will need to wait sometime to load, guests are super loud and kids are everywhere so unless it’s 2am forget about resting with quietness, rooms are connected with each other and there is only a little door separating you from the other room where you will be lucky if your neighbours are not shagging all night. Well there you go it you have it all, this was worst 60 euros I have spent in a hotel.

First off, this hotel seem to make no effort in any type of character. It looks like a prison on the outside and the feeling does not change once you get to the rooms. There is literally nothing there except for the necessary. The pool is ok, but again there is nothing more to it. A shame since it is a prime location. But our real issue with our stay was the blood worms coming out of the bathroom sink water. I’m no health expert, but it can’t be good. I highlighted this to the staff, and no action was taken. I believe our room number was 329.

Great location. Right on cenang beach. Family room is big and spacious. Swimming pool is small but have slide for kids to enjoy. My nieces love it. Breakfast are not that great but enough variety to choose. It is also close to everything, shopping and restaurants, on the same street as the hotel

Pros- location in centre of Main Street bear markets and restaurants. Good food when ordered at the restaurant for lunch Decent sized room Ways to improve -foot towels seen better days, please invest in new ones these were dirty every day -staff could provide more information on what to do/see in the area -deck chairs by the pool would make it a better experience as we were there during jellyfish season -for breakfast I would try maybe to do more with less

Resort appears basic from the outside and looks nothing special, perhaps a re paint could be an idea or maybe replace the large metal roof in the courtyard with some shade sails? Apart from this, the location is perfect, right on the beach. Rooms are very large and clean. We had a ocean view room at the front and it was great. Room was renovated apart from the bathroom which was dated but clean. Room is cleaned daily which is nice. Facilities are ok, the pool is small and basic but it will cool you down after a long day or give you a place to enjoy a cold beer. (the resort is alcohol free but you are welcome to BYO from the shop across the road!). Staff are friendly enough and happy to help. Included breakfast is basic but it does the job. What would you expect from a 3 star hotel! It was nice that it was included in the room rate. Would stay here again, its basic, well located and right in the heart of Langkawi!

Worst place at Pantai Cenang. Under staffed, poorly mainted, not good breakfast options etc. Totally a disappointing experience at Best Star. Only best part is the location. You can find better options nearby. Better avoid this place if you want peace of mind

Can’t really find much good to say about this place, the pool is tiny and the floor at the bottom of the pool has come away and the floor is hard to walk on... What can I say about the room very in my view the rooms are disgusting very poor hygiene standards, and the bedding which is normally white is a terrible dirty gray which is also full of stains. We were disgusted. The shower is totally disgusting and all we had was a shower shampoo head in which to wash as well as the sink. This spoilt our stay in Lang kiwi and if I were you I would stay very clear of this place, the only good thing I can say is location is good but that’s all. WiFi is free but don’t work either . And no hot water either horrible place.

I’m trying hard to find something positive to say and I can only come up with: location. The resort is extremely run down, in need of new paint and a total make-over of bath rooms. Beds rock hard and beach parties continue until 4 am making sleep impossible. Freshly cooked eggs for breakfast and location right on Pantai Cenang does not make up. Stay away, is my advice.
