Casa Fina Fine Homes Langkawi
Category: Budget/Mid-Range, Location: Pantai Cenang
Located near the southern end of Cenang's main road, the hotel offers rooms in several deluxe chalets in a nice garden setting. The entrance is from the main road and opposite to Underwater World or the Mc Donalds. The beach is only 5 minute walk from the hotel.
If you are looking to stay centrally in Cenang and close to the beach at an affordable price and enjoying the standard luxury of a mid-range hotel, then Casa Fina could be a good choice.
Casa Fina in Spanish actually means 'fine homes'. So the idea behind the property design with garden setting and chalets was to make you feel at home.
The property has a grassy garden at the center full of palm & coconut trees. The chalets or cottages are located around the garden overlooking the lush greenery. A paved pathway through the garden leads to various cottages in the property. Although centrally located, it offers a tranquil ambience in natural setting. From outside it's difficult to comprehend such a garden setting inside.
Cottages in Casa Fina
Rooms & Amenities
They have double deluxe rooms with a queen bed, superior rooms twin beds, triple deluxe room with a single and a queen bed, a family room with two king size beds and a single bed, and even a plush villa with three bedrooms with king size bed in one and single beds in the other two and having living, dining and kitchen. So the range is wide and can suite almost all types of travelers.
The double deluxe rooms housed in the cottages or chalets have a balcony with chairs and a small table to enjoy the outside views. The balcony is however shared with the neighbor because most cottages have two separate guest rooms with a common stairs and balcony.
View from inside a cottage room
All rooms have air-conditioner, flat color TV with satellite channels, hardwood floor, desk, wardrobe or closet, fridge, shower with geyser in the bathroom, complimentary toiletries, towels etc. Some rooms have electric kettle as well. The hotel offers free in-room wifi and parking as well.
NOTE: The Triple bedded room is separate and located above a convenience store. A shaky stairway leads up to the room and the room does not have any window. The only ventilation is through the bathroom window. So set your expectation accordingly if you go for this room.
There is no restaurant in the property, however there are numerous restaurants and eateries just outside the hotel. Mc Donald and couple of large duty free stores are right opposite to the entrance of the hotel. There is also a taxi stand on the opposite side of the road next to Underwater World.
Extra towels and pillows are separately charged. Take mosquito repellant because there are mosquitoes due to the plantations around.
What we like about the hotel
1) The location is excellent, opposite to Underwater World, Mc Donalds and duty free stores like Coco Valley and Zon. The beach is on the opposite side of the road but you need to walk for about 4-5 minute to find your way to the beach. Plenty of restaurants, bars and stores are located in the area. The restaurant Red Tomato is located right next to the entrance of the hotel.
2) Deluxe Double rooms with garden view and balcony are nice and offer a pleasant quiet stay although the hotel is located in the prime and busy part of Cenang.
What can improve
1) Service in the hotel can improve. From the chalets it requires a bit of walk to get to the reception and ask for service. There is no phone provided in the rooms. Recepton is open from 7am to 11pm.
2) Noise proofing of the rooms are inadequate. You can clearly hear your neighbors talking or listening to TV at night.
3) Housekeeping is in general good and done daily. However there have been several complaints of linens and pillow covers having stains and rooms not properly cleaned.
4) While the maintenance of the rooms in general is okay, there have been cases where all channels in TV not working, doors of the bathrooms making squeaky sound etc.
