    Why i say this, because the facilities is not so good. No iron , no blanket (just a bed sheet as blanket). This motel is budget motel but at least provide the real blanket instead of bed sheet as blanket. I will not stay here again unless i've bring my own blanket. The location is good , not to far from Pantai Cenang,quiet place.

    A quiet budget motel. It is adequate, nothing luxurious. A family owned facility. Clean but not fancy. Aircond and shower worked quite well. The motel is okay if you are spending a lot of time outside joining the island activities and need a restful place to sleep. There are eateries nearby. The restaurant across the road (right hand side) seems quite popular. It serves Malay Thai fusion dishes.

    Best Place Ever”
    Location strategic. Near to Lubuk Buaya Restaurant & mamak which is affordable price with satisfied meal. Motel's landscape was very beautiful! Relaxing view with nice hut, swing and beautiful flowers outside the room. Wifi strength also good even though i stay at the last room which is far from the main entrance. Room is big and nice. Even the washroom also big. Staff easy to cooperate. I arrive quite late but he can wait without complaining. I'm so glad! He even help us with providing the car rental with affordable price & good car. Just.... yeah.. there's some mosquitoes entering the room. They do provide a mosquitoes' spray but just a little. By the way, it's not a big problem as when d room is cold, the mosquitoes will flew away. 😉 Thank you 🖤

    Budget place to stay”
    We liked it for the price point. The location is a bit of a walk to Pantai Cenang. There is a 'mamak' restaurant nearby (24 hours) and a malay restaurant that operates on the night. The front of this motel is a laundry shop. The only downside is, there is a minor construction going on behind that laundry shop which does effect if you're spending a lot of time in the room. Not sure when they will finish. We stayed for two nights and extended another two while looking for another place in Cenang. When the construction is finish, I'm sure it's a peaceful place and still a budget friendly place. Rooms are spacious, you can sit in the front to do some work if you're a digital nomad. You can also sit outside at the porch or the common area. Wifi works fine. No problems with bathroom. No kettle but there is a fridge. We didn't use the TV at all. Recommend. Just had to put up with the construction for a bit.

    Location is close to food stall and 10mins walk to Cenang Beach, this motel is complete with kitchen and living room. But the staff was not at the reception by the time we were there and phone call was not picked up. We have to ask around. This situation needs to be improved by them.

    For the price you pay, it's far more than acceptable. Location wise is not bad, places are within walking distance. Cleanliness is above average, no sign of any insect or pest, very good! For staff, didn't interact much with them because we were always outside. So no comment for that :) And finally facilities. Well, of course the basics are covered, although I wish there was some shampoo and shower gel, but that's okay. Overall very comfortable and quiet stay, not to mention easy to find.

    It’s our third time here & it lived up to our expectation. Rooms are clean & cool with basic TV & mini fridge. Location closed to Pantai Cenang & Pantai Tengah but tucked away quietly from the hassle & bustle of these places. Restaurants & shops are just 1 min away, overall a great stay.

    I actually have lived in Langkawi for 10 years, so I know most accommodations pretty well. We were going out late, and did not want to catch a ferry home, so we booked the Desa. The room was large, the beds comfy, clean, and the location perfect, close to the beach, and quiet. This is cheaper accommodation, so nothing fancy, but for the price, it is definitely worth it.

    The place is very strategic. D motel is located at the bck of the cenang street. After u went shopping or had dinner in cenang street, then u can straight go back to motel. It's a suitable place to stay for budget trip. The surrounding was ok. Not recommend for honeymoon or couple trip which concern on more to luxury style

    The room was huge with two double beds and also a little living area. We liked the location away from the noise of the main drag but within walking distance to good restaurants and the beach. They have a nice bar area and gazebo in the courtyard. The bathroom could use work, but otherwise we were very comfortable. Also the laundry service was excellent and reasonably priced.

    Nice place to stay... would recommend!”
    Nice place to stay. Very convenient for Pantai Cenang but a short walk away so peaceful at night when you want to sleep, also close to Pantai Tengah, a much quieter beach. Some good restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the motel and a short walk to many more on the PC road. The villa was very quaint, had everything you would need and it was clean... despite a number of reviews there were no bedbugs (we did get bitten a lot but this was by mosquitoes which are numerous in Langkawi...bring bug spray and a mosquito net and make sure you close the door!) The bathroom wasn't the most modern but it was fine, clean and the water was hot (you have to make sure you turn the right combination of knobs and don't have it turned up to maximum flow). The staff were very helpful, we phoned ahead and arranged to check in late (we phoned when we got there and the guy was there within 5mins to check us in), the staff in the launderette sorted out every request that we had without any fuss. Would recommend!

    Everything is great except that the reception closes when the laundry shop close, around 6 PM. Some people manning the reception may not have strong command of English, but they would try to understand what you're saying and help you. Overall, the place is great not much traffic on the road and a 10min walk from the beach.

    ATTENTIVE CARE”
    security, big rooms, fun walk
    Both me and my wife had a business trip to Langkawi and decided to stay at Desa Motel. The price was reasonable. Ample and well secured car park. The hotel was operated by Pak Usop and both him and his wife was attentive enough to personally inspect my room with bits of welcoming goodies. Desa Motel is located roughly 10minutes drive from the airport. Desa Motel did not provide F&B. The closest F&B outlet is just 5 steps away from Desa Motel serving range of food from the all time favourite packet nasi lemak to all sort of chi and delicacies. There are also a range of F&B outlet across the road serving all kind of variety from local taste to western. Pantai Cenang and Pantai tengah is easily accessible. A walk to the Underwater World and variety of other duty-free shops is less than 10 minutes. Will return. I know they have plan to go big and i hope they will stay attentive still.

    Close to the beach (Pantai Cenang), Cheap and affordable, Easy Access
    Me and 7 other friends stayed here for 3D2N on our Langkawi trip. When we first booked this hotel we only scanned through a few reviews here. We found that the reviews are okay and that the rooms were very cheap and affordable. After purchasing the room only we found out about some bed bugs issue at Desa Motel through some reviews at Tripadvisor. However, since we have already purchased the rooms, we went prepared with sprays and repellents. The very first thing we did when we checked in the motel was to scanned throught the beds for bed bugs, to our surprise we found them real clean. The room were nice comfortable and spacious. For the price of RM57 for 3D2N per person, i have to say Desa Motel was worth the stay

    Desa Motel is where your stay is worth every penny you pay. The Villa room is comfortable for couples and families. Close enough to pantai cenang for activities, yet far enough to have a quiet surroundings. The only problems are (1) there's no 24hrs check-in/check-out service, and (2) only pay-per-view channel available in the rooms

The place is near interesting place, nearby Chenang and its actually situated in a not so busy area. You can have kampung experience and at the same time enjoy the happening beach nearby.
