Historical Traveler Reviews Four Points by Sheraton Langkawi Resort
My friends and I have been choused Langkasuka Beach Resort as our accommodation for 3 days 2 nights. Sad to say that we have an extreme worse experienced related to Langkasuka Beach Resort.
The information counter given a broken promise to us and at the end our schedule stuck make and influenced our trip
They provide us Japanese Tea as our Welcome Drink during us having dinner (included in the package).
The most terrible problem to make us really felt disappointed to Langkasuka Beach Resort is the management agent had called me and force us to check out earlier as the reason is will meet the trafic james. At the end we refuse to follow their order and they reject to provide us trandsfer service as our package had included this services.
How can it be 4 star hotel? It's just a old and dirty motel.
the swimming pool... We even thought it's a fish pool.
They don't provide toothbrush, hair dryer, cotton tips.....
We find many hair & dust under the table. The facilities are really old. The beach is big but not clean.
Breakfast bar is suck that we have only 1 breakfast there.(We stay for 3 night)
we don't recommend anyone stay there.
We had a great time at Langkasuka
I'm not sure why there are so many poor reviews of Langkasuka, my friends and I stayed there for four nights and enjoyed ourselves immensely. It's true that the hotel could be maintained a little better, but for the price paid I'd say it's just fine. My only real complaint is that our room smelled a little funny - mildewy because of the humidity maybe. but the room itself was huge, bright and spacious. The bathroom was enormous too with a huge, very new-looking bathtub. The shower floor could have been a little cleaner but it was a stand-up shower so it really didn't bother us. The resort's pool was lovely, another reviewer mentioned it looks greenish, but that's because the pool is designed to look like a natural rock pool, complete with waterfall, rather than the usual sterile-looking swimming pool that glows bright blue. The beach was decent too, we loved the lounge chairs under the little grass hut roofs. The landscaping around the outdoor areas is a little bit unkempt, but what can you expect when it's such an enormous property and when room rates are so low. It's true that there are lots of cats around the resort, to me this was an added plus since i adore cats. I didn't notice them making any noise at night or causing any kind of inconvenience.
The best thing about the hotel was the service, everyone was just lovely, from the reception staff to the travel agent in the lobby who helps you book tours or rent transportation. My boyfriend caught the flu during our stay and the hotel arranged for someone to drive us to a clinic free of charge, then wait till we were done and drive us back to the hotel. I would definitely go back to Langkasuka. Of course there are better hotels to be found, but at a much greater cost. My friends and I felt that we got excellent value for our money at Langkasuka.
You call this a 4 star hotel?
My bf and I went on a 2 nite stay in Langkawi and was "recommended" to get the hotel and car rental package by a car rental agent. In my mind i was picturing this cozy beach resort wiht a nice and clean little room. Got our car (one of the worst rented car! ) and reached Langkasuka. Reception area was decent and the lady that checked us in was soft spoken.
Room was big but worn out. No where close to a 4 star hotel. I woudl rate it a 2 star. We have requested to change room after discovering that the airconditioner was not working. The 2nd room was no better. Stained bathroom floor, stained pillows and pillow cases, dusty table and drawer (one that you woudl not want to touch or hang your clothes definitely), patheticly small TV (with only 4 channels- and most of the time my only choice was CNN), dirty balcony........
The room was basically facing one empty hall and the back of the kitchen.
We were entitled to 2 free breakfast. 1st morning was local breakfast in an unhygienic cafe or "canteen". Waiters/waitress were not properly trained as no one greeted us at all. Tables were messy with debris of food and gravy. No varieties of food - you only get nasi lemak, porridge, toast bread, eggs, fruits, and fried kueh teoh ( fried flat noodle) that are not appetising at all.
We opt to upgrade our breakfast to western buffet breakfast the second day. Western buffet took place in a much cleaner and quieter cafe. Not much choises either - porridge, toasts, stale pastries, fruits, hams, sausages, omelettes, pasta........thats all.
Beach and swimming pool...
Beach -- and swimming pool is pathetically small and not properly maintained. It looks greenish from far like it has been desserted for a long time.
Overall, I feel that Langkasuka Beach resort is not welcoming at all. I dont feel like staying in my hotel room as it feels eerie (big but without proper decoration or setting, no carpet too! ) and not relaxing at all. That really killed all my travel mood and defeited the purpose of my trip- to relax. I feel cheated by their false advertisement ( we were shown pretty pics of the hotel only to find out that those were all made up!).
Any chance to revisit Langkasuka? Not a damn chance! Langkawi and Langkasuka did not leave any good impression that will bring me back here again!
Badly mantained 4 star hotel
We spent 2 nights in Langkasuka in Feb 2006 and wonders about the 4 star rating. Our bathroom had horrible stains on the shower flooring and there were yellow stains in the toilet bowl!
The bed looks old and thorned on some places and the hallways are dirty with peeling paints.
We checked out on the third day and opted for one of the motels in Pantai Cenang. The chalet motel were much nicer, clean and has much better beach than langkasuka and almost half the price per night!
i stayed at the langkasuka resort for 3 nights in early january- it really wasn't great. the reception area was nice and my room was huge (especially for a single traveller) but thats about it. it was so quiet there as to almost be eerie and there was just no atmosphere there- nothing there was indicative of people on holiday having a good time.
also, the place is in desperate need of a refit- the pool towels were grotty and threadbare, none of the poolside refrehment sralls were open and all around the grounds were mewling stray cats- really not good at all. the other (quite amusing to be honest) fact was that the nearest shop was at the airport- which was well within walking distance, a fact not advertised on any website or brochure.
i hate to say it, but neither langkawi or the lagkasuka held much charm for me- i was glad when it was time to move on,
We holidayed at Langkawi from 15th till 19th June, and stayed at Langkasuka throughout that period. Before we flew off, my sis and I prayed hard that Langkasuka would be nice, if not fabulous. You see, the thing is, we are very particular about cleanliness, and we prayed so much that the bathroom facilities, most of all, at Langkasuka would not disappoint.
And phew! They didnt! I've stayed at Berjaya for my honeymoon back in 2002 and stayed at Awana Porto Malai in 2003 for a short family vacation. Of course, Berjaya I would rate the best, but I would definitely rate Langkasuka above APM!
The rooms are big, bathroom comes with tub and shower and spacious, and generally, the hotel is pretty clean. My two toddlers had no trouble roaming around. The only sore thumb is the hotel serves nasi lemak for breakfast buffet almost every day! I wish they would change the menu.
I would recommend Langkasuka to those who cannot afford the Berjaya. APM is def out!
Langakawi - Langakasuka Resort
penang will be a much better beach holiday to go to. However, must that the mangrove swamp tour is interesting for my and my family. this tour include eagle feeding which was a sight that we will remember.
langasuka resort is a nice sprawling resort with easy access to the town but the place is not well maintained.
we will highly recommend pelangi beach resort though for the price you pay, BINTAN will be a better alternative.
