The hotel, as many reviewers have said, is located right at the end of one of the nicest beaches on the island, and because of that it is very quiet and nice to chill - even when the rest of the beach is relatively crowded. The hotel is quite big, but strategically distributed on a very large property, so it doesn't feel too crowded. I can imagine that during top season the pool area may become overcrowded, but I would assume the beach would still be OK. I have read a few reviews complaining about the check in process, however I cannot agree - it was very reasonable and took little time, and since I was there early and had to wait for the room to be prepared I was treated as a guest in the meantime. I also disagree with some of the previous reviews stating that the rooms are tired and dated, being that this is a beach hotel built in rustic style (natural materials, wood, etc.) the rooms were very well kept and maintained. The room was spacious and comfortable with nice amenities. There were a few things here and there that could be fixed, however the biggest issue was the air condition. It was old and not working properly, so it was impossible to get the room to a comfortable temperature, so it was either super cold with the a/c blowing directly on the bed, or too warm with the a/c off. Not a deal breaker, but not very nice either. Many of the reviewers before had made similar points related to the air conditioning without any success. Another problem was the very limited dinner menu at the CBA restaurant and the complete lack of fresh fish/seafood options. Luckily there is a nice option for fresh food in the restaurant in the hotel next door, as well as some on the beach, including The Cliff. Otherwise the staff were very nice and professional with a special thanks to the bar personnel at the CBA for their excellent cocktails and attention, and especially the shift manager. The view from many of the beach parts is simply amazing and the ambiance throughout the property is exceptional. Overall the hotel is of very good value in terms of price vs. quality, however some small improvements can bring it to true five star experience. Read less

Good location, like the Lamb Pie selling near the counter. Near to Cenang Beach and sunset view was awesome. We both enjoyed the stay and would consider revisit this hotel again if we coming back to Langkawi.

Location in Cenang with lots of restaurants on the stripe. Short drive from the airport. Rooms were spacious but if you stay on the ground floor and have annoying upstairs neighbours, it can get noisy with loud thumping footsteps Our aircon was leaking on the first night, they sent someone to fix it. Then on the last day, the toilet ceiling was leaking. They couldn’t fix it and moved us to another room in the same block on the second floor. Then there was no water from the showers and again I had to call them to fix it. So many things seems to be breaking down. The exterior grounds looks worn out. The children pool had very dirty looking mats , not inviting at all. Overall it feels like a lot of maintenance is needed. Wrote a separate review on Cba regarding a rude staff., I think I’ll stick to The Danna if I ever go to Langkawi again Read less
