Perfect location for beach, shopping, restaurants, or a poolside quiet break. The hotel is a quiet oasis from the busy vibe outside and an easy walk to the beach and everything you need. The hotel is clean, lovely little garden and great pool. Well worth getting the poolside access rooms to set off your balcony & into the pool. Sadly...

It is a good location, about a two minute walk from the beach with lots of bars, restaurants and massage places nearby. The room was clean and simple; not bad, but nothing special. The staff was polite but not very helpful with providing information about the area. Taxis are always outside and it is nearby more than one convenience stores....

Not as clean as one could expect, breakfast rather poor, the staff friendly but skills in english were pretty poor. Good location and pretty good pool area with a small garden. Do not expect amazing balcony views.

Stayed at Whale resort for 2 nights. The place is average. The reception staff is rude when you have any questions, they just gave me blank look when i asked about wifi not working on my phone. Average hotel.

This is by far one of the worst hotels I've stayed in!! If you have ANY other options I recommend that you find a different hotel! The staff is rude and don't know the concept of service. No one in the entire hotel speaks more than four words of english! It is impossible to ask any questions, everything from breakfast...

Cheap, cheerful and in a good location. Bathroom was clean and functional and the bed was comfy. Very close to local bars and restaurants. 15 - 20 drive to the Big Buddha. Staff friendly and even allowed us to use computer in the office because we lost our phones.
