"Give this a miss - plenty of better options"
You are a taxi ride away from anything , your rooms require a shuttle to take you to nay hotel facilities such as pool etc , shuttles downright dangerous for kids. Food very expensive - service really poor for this level of hotel. Clearing up around you at breakfast , banging chairs etc . Nobody to welcome you on arrival etc - this hotel is going through […] financial difficulties according to staff and it shows. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Stayed at Sheraton"
I stayed for one night. It was a nice place to just relax and chilling. I requested to change room however it takes like 3hours for the housekeeping to settle it ang I need to call them back to ask the progress. But still my overall stay was great!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
First room we were checked into was disgusting - dirt everywhere, hole in the rug, stains in the bath etc...complained at reception - initially offered a clean and then moved rooms - new room an improvement - still a bit shabby in places. A lot of the hotel is in need of renovation and looks a little tatty and c1980s. The food and restaurants are extortionately […] expensive and about 5 times the price of other local outlets - at checkout minibar bill was inaccuarte - billed for chocolate bars not eaten and was shocked at price charged for of one bottle of evian water - it was over £5! (no price list to be found in room). Having said that beautiful views from the poolside area looking out over to the andaman sea and new boardwalk is good feature. Overall though disappointed and felt let down. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"well Worth it"
Great location and service was amazing. It is set right in a quiet little bay looking out over the ocean, with an infinity pool to take full advantage of it. The breakfast buffet is quite good if you have an adventurous palate then you can try many different styles but if not then you still get all the western staples barring bacon (it is a muslim country). […] The staff over all are just ok but a handful are extremely professional. Ask about stuff of the f&b manager Selvan as he is very very helpful. The resort itself needs a fair bit of TLC To get back to 5star standard but nice never the less. If you expecting western 5 star rating DONT. Over all i deff recommend.

Absolutely rubbish hotel. Came here with my husband for our honeymoon. Staff were rude and incompetent.

"Nice clean & comfortable rooms, not 5star service"
Nice clean & comfortable rooms, not 5star service. The breakfast isn't 5 star level. Sometimes I have to wait 15-30 min for the shuttle to pick me up from my room. The hotel is beautiful but need to more stuff to increase its quality of service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"BADLY IN NEED OF MAINTENANCE"
Sheraton Resort? I don;t think so. This hotel is sorely in need of a major maintenance. Outside furniture falling apart. Boardwalk around pool rotting with exposed nails. Many things in state of disrepair. Urinals Out Of Service in Lobby all the while time we were there. Wifi down most of the time. Excellent staff trying hard to appease many dissatisfied […] guests. Senior Management should be ashamed and Sheraton should make an inspection. This is NOT Sheraton standard. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not Sheraton Standard"
The staff and cleanliness were very good but the position not good if you want to see more of the island and shop as nothing is at its door, taxis have to be used to get anywhere, shopping, dining( apart from hotel dining). Hotel too isolated unless that is what you are looking for. Dissapointing for a Sheraton brand name resort, in great need of renovation, […] but prices are high and standard low.

"About 5kms from Chenang beach peaceful pretty"
Very satisfied with service generally very accommodating. Shuttle bus around resort handy in rainy weather. Like a lot of hotels in this part of the world maintenance is not a high priority. Gardens tidy and well kept. Unlike some resorts the pool staff were so laid back, it was hard getting their attention for service. Kinda nice really!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to relax"
Far from madding crowd it has a beautiful view and private beach which is to be explored the view from captain grill is amazing and need to take min 5-6 days to absorb the place. We had a memorable holidayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My friend and I had a bungalow each for our stay at the Sheraton, whilst my friends bungalow was fine, there were a few inconsistances with my room: 1. There was a lizard's tail on the floor in the bedroom area, 2. The mini bar was completely empty and remained so for the entire duration of my stay, 3. The bed linen had a large brown stain on it and […] smelt fishy, and despite requesting it to be cahnged, this took 3 days to be corrected 4. the tea making facilities were not always replenished. Given the 5 star rating I was a bit disappointed that, whilst it was a pleasant hotel with helpful staff, my room didn't quite live up to the 5 stars. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Service from hotel staff was lovely, however pictures of room on the internet are misleading, our room needs serious renovations, bathroom was poorly finished and messy, did not live up to the Sheraton name! It was very old and felt dirty, I did tell the guest services but they did not do anything about it. Had to catch a taxi everywhere as not close […] to many things. If going to Langkawi stay at the Meritus which is nice hotel and close to beach and restaurants shopping etc. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Poorly managed on all fronts! What a shame!!!"
In all honest i really don't know where to begin. The lack of care and customer service is present from the moment you check in. The rooms are dirty with plenty of cob-webs all around and off-course; let me not forget the friendly cockroach that ran up me leg at night. The bed sheet are not changed . I know this because soon after our checking in, I […] went to sleep and there was plenty of sand on the bed sheet. We had four rooms and in 3 out of 4 rooms the beds had sand in them!!! The floor were sandy, sticky and felt as if they were not cleaned for months (I guess they wanted to bring the beach to us). One could say that a now and then miss is acceptable, but as I mentioned we had four rooms and this was occurring in all our rooms. Dining was another experience. In the Feast Restaurant: DO NOT ORDER THE PIZZA (it is plain tomato sauce of top of bread and scarcely covered with cheese and tomato slices. In the Captain's Grill: The view is majestic, simply to die for from the outside. From the inside the same view is available, but you will need to look through several layers of grease and dirt that hangs on the beautiful floor to ceiling glass windows. DO NOT ORDER THE STEAK; they will overcook it and even burn the first .5-1 cm of the meat for you. And should you chose to dine in, plan on calling them 2 hours ahead and on re-calling them 2-3 times so they don't forget your order. If you order a hot item; it will arrive cold. If you order a cold item; it will arrive warm. The prices for food is not bad, what is bad is the food itself. So in essence, we paid for bad food that progressively worsened.. What made our dining worse some more was the fact the Sheraton langkawi is so far away from a decent restaurant that it is difficult to go. I guess they know this and that is possible why they don't care. You literally have not choice but to pay decent prices for poor quality food!! I love the Sheraton family of hotels and in fact I am a Starwood Privilege member, but th Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Had a great honeymoon"
Hotel was excellent, made my honeymoon perfect. Very friendly & helpful staff gave me lots advice where to go and how plan my day, told me where the expensive and bargain deals are. Hotel is located in good location with stunning views. Very close to everything and all the main palaces you'd want to go in Langkawi and close to airport too. Breakfast […] was great with good variety of things to choose from. In the evening the path ways are litted up, really nice for romantic walks with beautiful scenery. Own cabin with lots of privicy that was really good. 24hr bus service to reception, that was really convinient. Only negative, wireless is only free at the restaurant and reception and cost £5 a day to have it in your room. It bothered me at first . I would book the hotel again.

"Sheraton Langkawi Beach Resort"
Rooms were not cleaned properly before we moved in, mini bar and tea/coffee not always refilled, Internet modem did not work and was not repaired for 2 days, Jacuzzi did not work and was not fixed during all our stay-6days, Sofas in lobby are dirty with traces of juice etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful setting and great value for money."
For the money, I don't think you could do much better. Its not 5*, but a great resort, friendly staff and stunning setting. Standard rooms are very generously sized, bed was very comfortable, room was clean with all the facilities you needed. There are three seperate beach areas and an amazing pool right on the beach. Although a large resort, feels […] very spread out so never felt there were that many people there (except at the buffet breakfast). We ate dinner at one of the restaurants on site, food was lovely, visited town the next night which cost around USD$7 in the taxi and took 20 minutes. Resort restaurants are not expensive by Western standards but you can get much cheaper local cusine in town. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Response by Sheraton Langkawi Beach Resort Thank you for choosing the Sheraton Langkawi Beach Resort and for your kind words. As you may know our property is already 20 years old and throughout the years, a lot of effort has been put in to upkeep the facilities. The last renovation was six years ago where our lobby, restaurant and guestrooms were refurbished to give a refreshing look. I have taken onboard your comments on our menu and reviewing it with my Food & Beverage Manager for further improvement. Once again, thank you for choosing to stay with us and I look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
The hotel is in a nice secluded location with many interesting private bays and walking bridges. However, the photos are deceptive in that they show a long beach which does not exist at this hotel. That was a little disappointing. The breakfasts are nice, as it is nice to have some local food choices along with the traditional western type breakfast. […] The other restaurants need to revisit and revamp their menus and quality/quantity of food that they serve you. The seafood restaurant was nice but some of the local staff "block" rather than accomodate simple customer requests. The facility is spacious and in a very pretty location however, it is dated and needs to be upgraded. When people go to a resort they tend to spend more of their time there. In comparison, we ventured out to the Westin and it was so nice. The staff so attentive and friendly, the food quality and quantities were superb and, the location and decoration were very beautiful and current. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel with wonderfull service."
The hotel is very nice and relaxing. The rooms/kind of bungalows are large and very confortable. hotel has very nice view either with sea view or on the garden.......Service is great: the phone was not functioning in our room the first day...the staff wanted to upgrate us to another room with partial seaview......but we were so satisfied with our room […] that we keeped it as it is. There was a possibility to make phone calls from a phone outside the room if we wanted. but still the hotel manager has done his very best and has repaired the phone connection which needed support from the phone company. All hotel staff were very helpfull. the hotel has a very nice swimming pool and private beach......very nice to swimm in. The hotel is located about 15min (driving with the scooter) from the cenang beach (kind of center of lagnkawi), 3min (7-10 min walking) from the shin mi fish village where you can each fresh fish for very good prices. Also is the hotel about 10-15min from the cable car from which you can have a very nice view...and it is not so far from the airport. We stayed for nights in this hotel.......we experienced our stay as very good. It is a great hotel and if we come ever back to malaysia/langkawi, we will choose this hotel again! FA&KR.

Nice rooms but overall a bit worn out. Nice breakfeast and dinner but too expensive. Staff in restaurant sometimes a bit too busy too provide good service. Small beaches are ok but not the best ones. You´ll need a rented car or take a cab if you want to get out from the hotel because the setting is a bit isolatedGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"The Sheraton - Langkawi. Nice but a bit tired"
Enjoyed our stay, but found reception staff not very helpful. Rooms are looking a bit tired. Food around pool area very ordinary. And Beaches not very nice at Hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Sheraton Langkawi Beach Resort Many thanks for taking the time to write and post this review following your stay at our Resort. I am sorry for the unpleasant encounter you had with our Reception staff. I take concern of your feedback especially on our staff performance and currently working with my team to improve the overall performance. As you may know our property is already 20 years old and throughout the years, a lot of effort has been put in to upkeep the facilities. The last renovation was six years ago where our and guestrooms were refurbished to give a refreshing look. I have taken onboard your comments on the condition of our rooms, rest assured that our Maintenance Team conducts regular checks to upkeep the facilities for our guest safety and comfort. Once again, thank you very much for your valuable feedback. Warm regards.
Excellent service by all staff but, communication can be a problem. ie. Irish coffee please, may get you an iced coffee. Breakfast can be a nightmare with 200 plus guests pushing and shoving to get the last of the paw paw. Big queue for eggs. Limited western breakfast menu. Evening buffet is tragic. Coul not find one redeeming factor of the buffet to […] put a smile on our faces.Roast lamb was raw - Red meat cooked on barbecue was tough. Still, Happy Hour is a must. Building and room maintenance is the major concern as is Langkawi overall - big spending to create a tourist destinatation but little done to maintain over the years - needs a good makeover. Disappointing to make an appointment at the beauty parlor and then to see staff did not bother to turn up. Suggest they liase with Hotel staff at least! Overall, an enjoyable 3 day stay and good value for the money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Sheraton Langkawi Beach Resort"
1. The hotel rooms needs updating and maintainance. The room didn't feel like I payed for such amount of money to get this kind of room. For instance, room lights flickering, the light switch has turned from their original colour to brown. The deco in the room is like walking into a 80's hotel room. Clearly the maintainance people didn't see these little […] things. 2. The hotel surroundings, I asked for a sea room view, but a big tree obstruct my view. At least trim the tree a bit. 3. The beach, the maintainance people didn't even bother sweeping up the leaves. 4. The pool, leaves all over the pool. Even the tiles in the pool are not properly cleaned. 5. Poor upkeep on the surroundings of the hotel. 6. Hotel staff didn't maintain their professionalism. The way they treat their hotel guest, is there no prior training before they are appointed to work in the hotel? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Room booked online was not available. 30 minute wait in reception. Huge complex a d staff did not takes to our room. Hotel in need of upgrade. Wifi not available in rooms. Will not stay in a Sheraton again.Genuine Expedia guest review
I stayed in Sheraton beach resort Langkawi for 3 nights after 5 nights in Sheraton in KL, I payed quite a lot of money for just 3 nights and the standard was pretty good. Firstly I was pleased that I was upgraded to a seaview chalet with a private jacuzzi as I mentioned in my booking that I was on a honeymoon, this was a really nice gesture from the […] hotel. I did not try the breakfast buffet as I slept in for most days due to late nights. The location is breathtaking and the views were memorable, especially from the sea view chalet - watching the sun rise was one of the highlights of our honeymoon. The cleanliness of the room was great and the hotel staff handled any requests I had without any hassle, the free wifi in the lobby is excellent and overall it was a great stay and a fantastic experience. One slight problem I had was the fact I was bitten by mosquitos quite a lot whilst in the hotel lobby, I would have thought that some mosquito repellant techniques would be used in the hotel lobby, coupled with the fact the hotel restaurants food is way over priced and not very nice is why I have not given it 5 stars.

This hotel was not clean, poor maintenance and more of a chalet 3* hotel. We complained about our room on first day, sheets were not changed and had marks, shower was old and looked unclean.

"Sheraton Langkawi - simply amazing !"
Excellent room service, cleanliness, location and food. The sea view from the room was amazing ... The location is quite close to the airport, plus there is a taxi stand inside the resort which adds to the convenience. The hotel staff were very helpful and responsive. It is definitely worth it (although you kind of expect it at the price you will […] be paying) ! The lobby-room transport service is slightly slow, it might take you 10-15 minutes sometimes while waiting for your drop. Rest everything is great. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sheraton Langkawi needs renovations and restoration"
The Superior Room we requested was pretty dirty when we got it including travel documentation from the previous guest. The In Room menu was filthy being covered in sauce(?) and the coffee/tea facilities were full of ants. The shower had badly cracked and uneven tiles. There were holes in the floorboards that allowed us to see the ground below. The curtains […] and other upholstery was dirty. In short the whole room needed renovation and a good cleaning. That said the staff were really good about changing us to another room and everything else we needed. A lot of the hotels and resorts on Langkawi gave the impression that maintenance and upkeep are non existent all over. The Feast restaurant was overpriced for the quality and quantity of food provided. But the Captains Grill and Spice Trader were alright. Chimes was good for a drink especially in Happy Hour. All in all despite the good points and the friendly staff, the stay wasn't worth it tome and I won't be back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic rooms....terrible service!!"
The rooms were spacious and extremely clean and comfortable. We stayed at a garden view villa to the east side of the hotel complex. Eventhough we were very happy with the facilities and cleanliness of the accomodation, the service totally ruined the whole experience for us. You were almost expected to "spend" a certain amount of money in their restaurants […] and bars to warrant decent service. If you just ordered a burger or a glass of water, we were told by staff many times "just a burger/water...that's all??". And also the prices of food and beverages at the hotel are comprable to that of Australia and in some cases more expensive. After the arrogant attitude of staff and the hyper inflated prices of food, we decided to have all our meals our of the hotel and the night market food is fantastic and dirt cheap in comparison.

A gem of a hotel-Very similar in layout to Club Mahindra's Munnar property in India. The hotel is slightly away from the markets-a problem that is easily fixed. The trick in Langkawi is to rent a car (60-90 ringitts per day) -with petrol at Rs 32/litre and roads which can put the F1 circuit to shame, driving is a sheer pleasure, but I digress, for […] this is a hotel review.
