We have decided where to stay!
It should be pointed out that this trip was very much booked 'on a whim'! We saw an available flight and booked it to Langkawi. Only after that have we discovered that the island does seem to be quite expensive!!! We have been facing those reviews that seem to plague mid-range resorts...half the guests say 'it's fantastic' and the other half say 'it's the worst place they've ever stayed'!! Who is right?
So, after much browsing and umming and ahhing, we have decided to spend the first part of our stay at Meritus-Pelangi. The reviews on tripadvisor seem to be pretty consistent and as this is our first time to Malaysia we want to be in a nice place. Usually we go for 'basic' cheap & cheerful accommodation but we've ended up treating ourselves! The Meritus is a bit more than we'd usually pay so we're hoping it's good!
The last 5 days of our stay we're really pushing the boat out and staying at The Andaman resort.
Watch this space for a review when we return!
