Palms Guesthouse has changed owners recently. Prices haven't seemed to change but standard of the room has changed. I must admit that I came this time during low season, service might be different during high season - my last review on this guesthouse was during high season. This time, there was literally no reception. A piece of paper with a... More

We originally booked a fan room but after one night moved to a room with aircon as the room was just too hot. The owner was extremely helpful and gave us plenty of advice for visiting the area. The guesthouse was basic and simple and the shower was always hot. If you're a backpacker and on a budget then i... More

Our stay at the Palms Guest House in Pantai Cenang started in a fan only room and it was hot but manageble. However the water went off after the first night in our room and just a couple of other adjacent rooms. We negotiated a move to another room, but with air-con. Huge improvement in comfort a little extra cost.... More

Stayed here with a friend in summer 2010. Great value, close to the beach yet up a side street so not noisy, really helpful owner and clean. Excellent value and wouldn't hesitate staying again.

We stayed at Palms for 2 weeks and loved our time there. The place is close to the beach but far enough away from all the late night action. The place was extremely clean and the couple that run it are very friendly and accomodating. We stayed at first in a fan room but then switched to an a/c room.... More

We stayed here whilst touring around Langkawi. It seems the owners have changed and the English couple no longer own it. Instead we met Raj, a very pleasant chap happy to help us. The double room was nice enough as was the quiet setting. There wasn't any window in the room and we had to suffer from the strip lighting.... More

After checking in, we walked into palm's room 4 and there were at least 2 dozen Mosquitos swarming in the bedroom and bathroom. There were spiders spinning cobwebs in every corner of the room. My bf even thought it was too much. We left and are now happily staying at Sweet inns. A huge improvement!

Great location if you want to be near tourist attractions, busy restaurants and duty-free shopping centre on Pantai Cenang. Not good if you're looking for quiet time on Langkawi. Clean and good value, but rather warm for a fan room. Fridge in room is one of the best ideas to store duty-free drinks!:) Ironically, while it's near the commercial areas,... More
