Desa Motel is a small family run lodging with a large laundry business operating separately. The laundry office is where you book in. 10 units with a small neat garden and common area that divides the accommodation units. At night, the outside is well lit to go back to your room. We stayed at the delux villa which had a... More

In Langkawi, there are plenty of accommodation options. I will suggest places close to beach rather than in Kuah town. (After all, you are here for the beach). In that respect its location is good. Beaches are at walking distance and there is a good food outlet right in front. If you can have your car, parking is no problem.... More

Bed sheet had some holes, was clean but ridiculously thin. The bathroomfloor was always wet after showering and the sand stayed at the floor. There is s... More

We experienced an over-supply of bedbugs during our stay last year. We presented the creatures to the owner and his wife. First, they disputed the findings. Second, they assured us that each room would be fumigated during the summer slow season. Obviously, no action was taken, which leave us to believe that their assurances were fabricated and duplicitous. Their lack... More

This hotel is, pleasant. The rooms are very large and offer great a/c. The location is a 15/20 minute walk from the strip of shops and restaurants. My issue was with the staff, when we arrived they didn't have our booking and the guy who seems to be the boss had to check his emails to see we'd booked through... More

one of those hotels which have suffered from lack of maintenance, taps leaking, toilet not flushing, lights not working,air con old,tv didn't work' etc,etc. no actual front desk with maps or info, call into the laundry, pick up your key from some very uninterested girls and you won't see anyone again. disappointed.

I had read reviews and although bedbugs had been mentioned, it was two years ago. On arrival in Langkawi, the Desa was full but I took a look at one of the rooms which was large, clean and good value for money. Two days later we booked in for five days. I removed the sheets and examined the mattress which... More

We stayed there for 2 nights. Was told that the motel is fronting the beach. But, we only had the beach sand in front of our motel! The beach is still far to see by the eyes. The room is spacious. Come with basic furnitures, mini fridges and kettle. The location considered strategic as very close to pantai cenang. You... More
