It was amazing location in heart of Langkawi and easy access to pantai cenang area. Very clean beach. The rooms size is very small. The swimming poll is tiny and unusable. Clean beach and friendly staff.

AVOID AVOID AVOID. As other people have mentioned, the staff (in particular the receptionist) are extremely rude. I had one of their staff members lie and manipulate my husband into giving them money as if i had told them to charge him. When he saw me after with no drink or anything what he assumed it was for i confronted the staff where i was taken to speak to the receptionist. The staff are extremely rude and disrespectful, ignored me as i'm speaking, start speaking over me amongst each other, start making up rules on the stop to support them trying to keep the money, at one point they even claimed i had broken a seat and therefore had to pay for it. They are bad people that try to scare tourist into letting them keep their money. They were claiming they would call the police on me! I have been in this area and have a good idea how the culture and the police and so welcomed them to do so. Obviously they didn't, but i fear for other tourist that wouldn't know as much/ become intimidated and end up getting ripped off. The Kalut bar is nice which is a shame (but much more expensive than others), though there are plenty of nicer bars with better staff you can give your money to! Avoid Kalut, Mali Mali, and their guys renting beach chairs on the beach. They'll claim you broke it!

I have visited close to 50 countries. I have never written a bad review. But I feel any future customers should be warned that this place is a total dump. The pictures I saw on line when I was booking were a total con job. The front door is held together with masking tape. The WiFi doesn’t work. There were people at the table just 10 feet from my door, not guests, that had loud music and a party until 3 am. The beach is beautiful but staying here is very ugly.

The hotel itself was not anything spectacular. The rooms were small but had all the necessities (minus a room safe). The room and bedding did not look very clean. If you’re a light sleeper this is not the place for you as you can hear neighbors and music playing until the early hours of the morning. The pros of this hotel are location, location, location! The hotel is right on the beach! In the evenings there is music and a fire show right by the beach bar. There are tons of shops and restaurants in walking distance which is very convenient.

The beach bar Kalutbar has a great view across the beach and the sea. It serves the strongest cocktails ever, but the taste isn’t so great! The resort behind looked absolutely rancid. I’d avoid it like the plague.

The beach bar from the road is not obvious. Its next to Happy Happy Cenang Seafood Restaurant. The bar staff knew my friend but they were good to keep supplying the drinks and food since we spent a good 7 hours there. Nice views out to sea, and at sunset too. Just before the sunset a lot of bean bags spread along the beach section and later in the night there were entertainers with flame throwing to add a little excitement. Good choice of drinks, the boys are good at the cocktails. No dispute over the bill. Music choice is good. Only draw back is the one toilet to be used by ladies and gents and by the end of the night its a bit damp in there!!!! The drinks are well priced. Enjoyed the casual nature of the bar, owner and staff.

The hotel image from the beach was nice and I like the set up. Beds were comfortable. Pretty clean. Lovely, funny staff. Has quite basic rooms and the beach bar is way too noisy. It’s ok until Eleven but should be playing at 2am! When it finally did finish there were non hotel guests walking through the hotel making a lot of noise. I did like the beach bar before 11pm though!

I came her with fairly low expectations due to the very reasonable prices and the style of the accommodation. It's basically beach chalets but they have everything you need. The pool is a lot smaller than it looks though and very rarely gets used. There is no shade so you could get boiled if using it in the daytime. I didn't bother since the sea is so nice to swim in anyway. The check-in was easy but we had to wait for our rooms to be cleaned. Then we had to wait a bit longer but it was no big deal since the bar is right next to the chalets. The food menu in the Kalut bar is limited to burgers and wings but the burgers are excellent. Prices are not much less than some cheap bars in KL but they are less. It's night-time when Kalut really hots up. Some nights they have a fire show on the beach which is excellent. All the bar staff are great too and they will take your order and bring it to you on the beach. They bring out the large bean bags and put them on the beach at night. Top tip: If you want your room cleaned ask at reception. I put the outdoor sign to "please clean room" but it was never done. I don't think the cleaners look at these signs. When checking in you will get 2 towels and 1 roll of toilet paper. It's a good idea to buy more at the local 7/11. Mali-Mali and Kalut beach bar are probably the best places on Pantai Cenang. I would definitely go back. It's not high class so if you don't like beach style chalets, keep this in mind. If you just use your room for sleeping in, this place is the best.

Eventhough the resort is one of the olderst resort in pantai chenang, it has its own character. The resort is about 15 minutes from the airport. The room is good by it's own way. The washroom is good and well maintained. The resort is facing the beach which certain rooms are just few meters form the beach. It's also just walking distance from convenient store which open 24hours. The resort has its own beach bar which called "Kalutbar". It's an awesome place to hang around cos it's on the beach. They have good variety of cocktails. Nice place to hang around during sunset. They have fire show at night. The receptionist is available 24/7 and they are so flexible to allow you to check in early as long you have made the booking. Overall it's an awesome place to hang around with friends.

Receptionist: The receptionist was very helpful and kind enough to allow us to check in earlier. Room: Basic room. It is not clean when we checked in Pool: Not as the picture. It is too small. Probably fits 6 to 8 people only. Beach: About 3 minutes walk to the beach
