Nice but needs improvementfrom AnnaNottingham
No Complaintsfrom Hervey
Holiday Villa is a good hotel if you want a rest, best pool I have ever seen, most of the staff very fiendly. Only one was not , and he could have been the Manager, he ignored all the guests, walked around with his nose in the air.
I am making a few suggestions for the hotel, I have worked in many and stayed in lots.
First, at the pool, they would do a lot better if a waiter came around the pool to see if you required any drinks or food.
As for he bar inside instead of 50% off drinks in happy hour offer buy one get one free.
The person who complained about the internet we had no problems and used it every day, Breakfast was okay, but we went across the road for dinner at the Boat, much cheape.
Rooms were good, and well serviced.
also with the pool bar. it is very hard to get to the bar with no steps in the pool, hard if you were old.
I know it is hard to cater for non Muslims, but you need to try harder.
otherwise no problems with hotel and would stay there again.
Enjoyed our stay.from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel has two restuarants, a large pool with poolside bar, childrens pool and jacuzzi, beach bar and an airconditioned indoor bar (happy hour from 5-8pm). The sea is a few steps away beyond the pool and the beach was very quiet. Just perfect!
We spent most of our time sightseeing and hired a small car and two mopeds to get around. Car cost MR50, mopeds cost MR30 each for first day. Then, car MR45 and motorcycle MR27 for each subsequent days hire from "The Shop", the local convenience shop opposite the main gates to the resort at about 11 o'clock direction. The cars and mopeds are very cheap indeed and alot of fun!. Highly recommended to get around the island as taxis, although very cheap, will cost just as much return (RM40-50), to say Kuah the biggest town on the island about 11Km away.
There are plenty of good local restuarants opposite the resort but all are outdoors, so use plenty of jungle strength mosquito repellant as the little blighters will take a nibble from you. For some reason, the locals don't get bitten, just us foreigners...
A bit of advice, when you arrive at the airport, don't take up the car hire and local excursion offers as these are extremely overpriced. They will try to pressurise you with discounts etc. Still around MR150 - MR380 for 4- 6 hours tour of the islands. Go the "The Shop" oppsite the resort, we paid MR40 (about GBP6-7) for a 4 1/2 hour tour by speed boat (Highly recommended) and was probably the best excursion we had. Great fun! and Wow, what a view. This includes stops on some of the islands where you can swim in the sea, feed the Eagles, etc (must see/do)
If you are looking for a luxury 5 star resort, then this is not for you. Best try the Datai located on the North to North West side of the Island (about 5 times more expensive). But if you want a good affordable stay for your money, then this resort is it.
Above average for 3 star resort! Have a great holiday! We did....
Holiday Villa resort - Fabulousfrom Ponks
I Love Holiday Villa!from qwertyu
I found the rooms perfectly adequate. The towels are a bit small, but that is hardly something to ruin your holiday. The staff are friendly enough. Some of the staff at the pool bar can be a bit grumpy looking, but that doesn't bother me. The pool is huge and as warm as bath water, as is the sea. The pool and beach bars are very good for snacks and pina coladas. There are lots of water sports at the beach. The sand and water is very clean.
There are very cheap convenience stores just opposite, an excellent taxi service in the lobby and it is near to Sun Village, which is great. There are some great Chines restaurants opposite too such as The Boat and Fat Mums.
The breakfast is a bit strange. I mainly stuck to fruit, but the omelettes are good. Sometimes we had lunch at the beach bar, which do yummy satays, but mostly we went out for lunch and dinner.
It is such a nice hotel I really love it.
A trip to forget!from A TripAdvisor Member
The main restuarant was over priced for their terrible food. For example there soup came in a small cup, was watery and did not taste right and yet they charged a ridiculous 22RM.
The only time I wanted to use the internet in there 1 computer room, the line was down for 2 days.
I must however say that the canon shop which is privatley owned in the villa had very friendly and helpful staff
We loved itfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Great locationfrom Jellybabe
The breakfast is also below standard, but we booked for the Christmas meal and...it was GREAT!
However, the staff is very friendly and helpful and the location is great.
It is close to two excellent restaurants, Sun Cafe and Sunkarma.
We rented 2 scooters and had so much fun!
Very disappointingfrom IonaHelen
First of all, the room I was given was next door to another room which was undergoing rennovation work (the whole hotel needs completely rennovated). There were pneumatic drills being used on floor and wall tiles and it was simply horrendous. I immediately asked to be moved. The reception staff kindly obliged but moved me just a bit down the corridor and I could still hear the drills! I was then moved for the 3rd time to a room that was filthy. I had to complain for the 4th time and was moved back to the area where the workmen there. The reception staff told me I would have to wait until the following day before they could give me the 5th room!! (Can I just point out that I've never ever in my life complained about a hotel room so that should tell you something)
Eventually, I was given my room and to be fair, it had a lovely view but the rooms are in a bad way. They seriously need redecorated and cleaned. I found all of the 5 rooms to be smelly and what was even worse was at night, because there is a gap under the door of the room, I found cockroaches crawling everywhere. The hotel is also not very secure. Loads of mosquitoes.
The food.....argh.....it was AWFUL!! Whatever you do, do not use the hotel restaurant. Completely substandard. I used room service on several occasions. On one instance, I was given the wrong food. Another occasion, the food was cold. Finally, it never arrived so I just gave up.
The bed sheets are not changed daily.
Overall, it's a bit of a dirty pithole and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The sea is very dirty too.
spacious roomfrom darlynn
btw, holiday villa langkawi is more on the hotel style. if you prefer those cabanas style or beach houses, then this will not be suitable. also, the hotel has ample parking lots for your rented cars.

Book early I made a mistake thinking that the hotels will be available during low season. I was wrong! The hotel was fully booked , even the cheap ones. Luckily I managed to get this hotel.
