Sunset Beach Resort
Ranked #4 of 16 Hotels in Pantai Cenang
Reviewed 30 January 2017

This hotel was disgusting - dirty, loud, no wi fi, no hot water, no customer service from staff or interest in assisting guests. Stayed in 108 which cost $115 australian dollars per night. The room was filthy and had dust bunnies and large hair clumps from the previous guests. Room not properly insulated so could hear noise of next door neighbours all day and all night as the adults drank beer and smoked outside our room with their noisy, rude children shouting and carrying on. Water in shower was not hot, and would not even qualify as luke warm even with the hot tap up all the way. No wifi available in room as signal does not stretch that far so could not do the work I had planned to. Security of room questionable with a single small lock on the door and door not tighly sealed. Receptionist both times we had a question was sleeping at the front desk (even at 930 am!). Absolutely revolting hotel, awful service, and would have gladly and fairly given zero stars for our experience if it was an option.

Room Tip: Choose a room in a different hotel, you will have a terrible time at the Sunset Beach.

Sunset beach is a simple but charming hotel . There are no mod cons , but what you get is a large room and bathroom , friendly staff and a charming setting . You also have access to virtually a private beach . How long it remains that way with all the construction going on around it remains to be seen.

Once upon a time this used probably to be a super place to stay in Langkawi. Until today, the resort is very well located and the staff is super friendly and obliging.
There have been obviously a few changes in the last time:
- you have to be aware, that there is a huge construction site which will make you not sleep long and even worse: which will disturb your stay at the beautiful beach.
- there are only 7 (!!!) mattresses for the sunbeds, on which you can't relax without, because it will give you back pain.
- our room wasn't very well cleaned, the fridge was mouldy and the room itself very dusty. Towels and sheets were old, with lots of spots and old dirt on it.
- last but not least: the WiFi is so bad, you can't even use WhatsApp most of the time.

This all wouldn't be much of a problem if the prices were lower. I guess the prices is the last bit remaining of the good old times, when sunset beach resort was what it still promises to be.

Its a special resort because of two things Location and beach. Location is simply awesome not only for shopping or food but for beach also as they have their own small private beach which is quite relaxing and away from the hussle. For the rooms, I didn't find anything special. They don't provide welcome drink or water,coffee maker was provided in the room. Washroom was big compared to island standards. Sunset resort is different because If you Wana enjoy beach and relax and can get any type of food by walk then its a heaven for a visitor.

Cheap accommodation with its lil private beach nearby...Rooms were bit dark but comfy. Good value. Very good to go chill. Definitely would go there again. Nasi Kandahar nearby and not as busy as the central cenang.

We were there from Dec 27 to 30. Stayed at the Sunset II Chalet priced at RM220 per night

Pros:
1) Quite and private place
2) Clean beach (Pantai Tengah), away from the crowded Pantai Cenang
3) Cosy room. Resort staff make up room everyday

Cons:
1) TV only has local channels (having paid RM220 per night you would expect more
2) No breakfast
3) Mosquitoes

We rented a car Nissan Almera for RM280 for four days three nights. Great way to get around in Langkawi

Hi everybody! I am writing here not only because our stay at Sunset was really nice, but also to warn you. Sunset is situated at the Tengah Beach, right besides the bigger and more popular beach Cenang. We thought that was a "bad" thing, but turned out that saved out whole stay. If you don't like completely overcrowded beaches, with flags and plastic crap all over, motorboats at every metre and taggy restaurants DON'T to go Cenang. Go to Tengah, which is a beautiful wild beach with so few tourists you practically have it to yourself (at least in december Month). The few resorts are build just shy of the beach, so looking down you only see the beach and no resorts. Sunset is placed in one end and has a beautiful little stretch of palm trees leading to the beach. The rooms are nice and super clean and built in a nice green garden. Good value for money.
