Recent guest reviews

I’ve booked a seaview chalet (which is only available on their website) on 3-4th Sept. The view was really good but the downside is plenty. 1. There’s still sand on my newly made bed. It is obviously not from us as both of just had our shower and the comforter were still tucked in neatly. As i got in the bed and comforter, i can feel the sand on the bedsheet. I wonder if they even change the bedsheet. 2. There was no receptionist after 12. They don’t even provide any telephone in the room. If something happened to the customers, i wonder what they should do to sort the things out as the receptionist will only be available about 8am the next day. 3. One of the bed-lamps is broken. 4. The AC is broken. This is the reason why we tried to call the receptionist and realized that they were not there. 5. The pillows was just..... bad. Really bad. 6. There was no plug point beside the bed. For RM220-260 per night, it is just not worth it. You can find somewhere else with a cheaper rate, better facilities and great view.

We chose this place on the day of our arrival as a stopover before we went to Berjaya Langkawi. Sort of a cheap rest place. Reason being its near to the airport, so we won't be tired after our flight. Took us a long time to locate this place as the main building look like it was undergoing renovation. And there were no visible signages. The lobby is in the main building. Check in was fast and staff were friendly. We got a bedroom at level 3 with a little balcony facing the beach. From the outside the hotel needed a major renovation. Room was clean with the basic amenities. For ironing, there was a common ironer in the lobby. I guess you don't  need to iron anything  you on a holiday.  We didn't eat at the restaurant as there were alot restaurants around. Didn't try the beach and the pool as its was raining the whole day we were there. My verdict The hotel is located on the beach, the next time we will take the beach villas. As it is also located on the main road. There are lots of restaurants and convenient stores. Just across Malibest there is a.7 eleven with a ATM machine.  Parking was free at the side of near the resort but limited. And also muddy. With the price I got , its a good stay. 

We got the superior queen bedroom at level 2 comes with a balcony facing the beach. The building need upgrading but room is clean and comfortable. It was near a beach and also very near to the cenang street with lots of restaurants and convenient stores. Parking was free at their premise near the resort, probably around 2 min walk. We reached at 11pm and carpark was full and we have to find another parking lot by the street which is very challenging. overall a worthy stay with the price i had paid for.

Rooms are dark and in desperate need of refurbishment. Have to pay for sun loungers on the beach, facilities poor, communal iron board and cheap hairdryer which can only be used and returned to reception in 2 hours. Stay in another hotel for the same price! Entrance is through a building site from the road

Nicely situated at Central of Cenang Beach. Near to airport and also to underwater world. Many choices of food and dishes to choose from local cuisine, western, seafood and middle east dishes. So many attractions and places to visit besides shopping duty free. Highly recommended for adventurer, backpacker and shopping.

lovely resort to stay 2mins walk to beach.. the smell of pantai cenang sand are so good alot of local restaurant by walking distance. just enjoy the nature. recommended to all the future visitors. tqsm!!!

We stayed 7 nights for leaving on our 8th days in Malibest. Totally out of our expectations. Receptionists are not helpful. You can't choose your rooms before arrival, they give you the ones aren't occupied. Rooms are not soundproof. They don't clean properly. Their maids were so friendly and good listener however their English speaking were weak. The hotel is located in a one way system and busy road.There wasn't any telephone from rooms to reception. Big hassle. There was few times that our room swipe card was locked by reception by their mistake. Their answer after apologising would be this, "The computer showed us you haven't paid enough" -What an annoying upsetting mistake from booking staff!...I had to leave my 75 years old Mum on the floor behind the locked room to walk down the lobby and to let them know our card doesn't work. There's only one chair in double bedrooms. We never used the swimming pool as it was always full of noisy kids. We saw very dirty hallway during our stay. By the way, we would never choose this place for our family reunion holiday but the private villa we had booked first, had problem with Water so we had to cancel just two weeks before our flights therefore we didn't have many options left for our 8 people group (6 adults plus two little kids) to choose.

I stayed in the family room of Malibest resort. Room was very spacious and well carpeted. The bathroom was nice. The AC was not cooling enough but was fixed after complaining the reception.There is no clerk at the reception when I arrivved at 11pm from KL- I had informed them earlier about time of arrival. There were only security and although they did try to help I understood they didnt have the authority to help much. The hotel is undergoing maintenance and hence the exterior has bit of a shabby feel. The location is excellent though being right in the middle of the Pentai Cenang beach area with its own private beach. However the service needs to improve a lot for a hotel of this scale and cost. Room Service didnt provide water bottle or soap and had to be repeatedly requested for the same.

Every thing is bad but the location and beach Rooms 1/5 Food 0/5 (no restaurant) Wifi 3/5 Pool 3/5 small but contains some fun for kids Stuff 2/5 tough not friendly Bed 1/5 not comfortable AC 2/5 Security 1/5 anyone can enter to room area. It is not considered as hotel Just some rooms near each other.

Although location is good, but the hotel services are the worst.Rooms are untidy, people are unprofessional. They don’t know how to greet guests. Bathrooms are bad and smelly. It is best to book best star resort. It is nearby and is good
