Rated 4 out of 5 by Lea1 Beautiful but noisy resort
We stayed in the suite overlooking the Water. The suite was lovely, although it lacked in the final finish. A great annoyance was the confusing signposting outside our door - which caused people to try to open our door or ring the bell at all times. The information about hotel facilities was a little scarce. The balcony and view was amazing. The grounds were appealing, though we missed tranquility desperately! There was constant music from the pool-bar, noise from an ongoing renovation and noise from special events in the evening. The staff were generally adequately serviceminded. The place in general was well suited for families with children.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mikesmith902 Unsatisfactory experience all round
Check in (after 6 hours travel delay) experience was poor, with check in agent trying to insist that the booking excluded breakfast, and after 10 seconds of discussion, agreeing that the rate would include breakfast!
Breakfast quality and diversity poor.
Room cleanliness poor (hairs in the bathroom, and bed sheets)
General enthusiasm of staff not great (except for one trainee who went out of his way to provide good customer service)
Check out - was informed that my bill was automatically deducted from the credit card, even though I wanted to pay by cash, etc..
Expected better service quality from this resort

Rated 5 out of 5 by petzi44 Perfect Holiday
We stayed at the hotel for 7 nights. First we were not satisfied with our room, but we could change to another one without any circumstances. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The pools are great and although they are playing some music it is not annoying. It's enough place for everybody and you can really relax at the pool and on the beach. The beach is nice and lonely.
Breakfast has a wide range. Food and beverages which are provided at Splash, Tide and Taste are delicious, sometimes you have to wait for your orders a little longer (@Tide).
24h fitness is cool and the free Wifi is ok. Sometimes the connection didn't work or broke up, but it was free.
All in all a nearly perfect stay! We will be back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cafiene Visit for the Spa
I have mixed feelings for the Westin Langkawi, I stayed 4 nights. Its almost as if the staff eases into you - had I been there for just 2 nights my experience would not have been redeemed.
THe rooms and the hotel are a little dated and wear and tear is visible.
Saving Grace - Outstanding Spa and Service!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tautvydas Externally beautiful,but internally not so much
1.There is no real sea beach:sea is shallow and dirty
2.Not enough sunbeds at the pools:all are occupied early in the morning for all day,even if nobody lays on them.Pools are nice themselves.
3.Food in dinner buffet is awesome.Few days after New Year party we were feeded by reprocessed remains of the party...
4.Never come there for new year!Musicians are training 2 days before it .So loud that our balcony windows and doors were buzzing and vibrating!It is real torture lasting two days!
5.Our sun umbrella was broken by wind and never repaired during our stay...
6.But rooms are clean and service is helpful

Rated 2 out of 5 by LangkawiHotel Below Expectation
The lobby is vy warm. The Seasonal Taste's Breakfast and Dinner is not value for money, doesn't taste good and quality is not up to standard. F&B is over priced in terms of taste, variety and quality. The Rock Pool for children is very dirty, floating of dirt particles can be seen. My son get rashes after swimming there. Additional of that, a lot of big ants seen crawling around the rock in the rock pool. This is dangerous for the children, as they might get bitten by the big ants. Overall it looks like a 5 star scenery with a 3 star service. I've stayed in a few other 4 star or 5 star hotel in Langkawi but this is the worst.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andi0 THIS HOTEL IS PURE PARADISE
This hotel is absolute paradise. Location on the beach was perfect. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The food in all the resturants was wonderful especially breakfast. The spa was relaxing but found the massages in town were better but having the kids club helped. My boys thought that was the best time they had. Definately be visiting again. The Westin was better than expected and the website photos don't do it justice.
