Malibest Resort Location On Cenang Beach

My friends advice was absolutely correct as I couldn't fault the Malibest Resort location right in the middle of all the action on Cenang Beach and I was fortunate enough to book a beach front super deluxe room where I could just literally step straight out onto the beach.
The expression location, location, location is the secret behind the Malibest Resorts success as it is a descriptive truly fitting of this beach front hotel. I was easily distracted from the tired look of the resort once I looked out the window of my room to see I was on the beach.
The beach is good, it's just some of the more remote beaches of Langkawi are a little nicer. However some of the best bars and restaurants on Langkawi are within 2 minutes walking distance from the Malibest Resort making this a very popular destination for the happy traveller.
If you hire a car from the airport or ferry terminal you will only use it for touring the island as everything you need is within a few minutes walking distance of the Malibest. So if you just want to chill by the beach then it is better to get a taxi from your point of disembarkation.
Don't be put off by the lack of hotel amenities as you can easily book everything from watersports to island hopping trips and while the beach is on one side of the resort, Cenangs 'High Street' is on the other to save the day if you forgot to pack your toothbrush.
The Malibest Resort rooms are basic but the bedsheets are clean and the rooms serviced daily to an acceptable standard.
My room for the two nights I was to stay was spacious enough although it did have a tired aged look about it. Don't expect the creature comforts of a highly pampered 5 star resort but it was clean and the staff were quite friendly.

You don't book into the Malibest Resort for a 5 star pampering, you stay here for the fantastic location right on the most happening beach on Langkawi Island.

I had a weekend trip to Langkawi and I was trawling through lists of hotels on Cenang Beach looking for a beach front room with a view. A friend recommended the Malibest Resort for its location but he also added a caveat, don't expect any fantastic hotel amenities as you will be disappointed.

Cenang Beach is probably not the nicest beach on Langkawi Island but it is definitely the most happening.
