Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The coolest hotel! Actually a topper 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Staff: Very friendly staff, they speak English at the reception, very little Russian (some words, but the guys try very hard). We asked for a second blanket, they brought it almost immediately (after 7-10 minutes), a separate blanket like the main one, and not some kind of blanket. There was also a day when we slept during the day and set “do not disturb” for almost the whole day, and in the evening we went to the reception, asked to clean up, the girl said that they would do everything now, and they cleaned everything up, while at that time we went to eat at cafe. They clean every day, provide fresh towels and bottled water. Hotel configuration: A very large lobby with air conditioning, I have never seen it even half full. Zoning works very well so that no one bothers anyone. There is a bar in the lobby where you can get a drink and dessert once a day for about 300 baht. There are 6 floors in total: basement - cafe/restaurant + parking (they are separated, no one breathes exhaust fumes, while you eat you don’t look at the parking lot, because there is a counter and a fence), 1st floor - pool and lobby, rooms with access to the pool , the remaining floors are rooms, on the roof there is a large swimming pool, a bar, a barbecue, a shower, an area just for relaxing with sofas and sun loungers. Everything is done cleanly, neatly, tastefully. There is a lot of space, despite the fact that the hotel has no territory. The pools are open until midnight, so we had a nice swim after sunset. There is also beautiful lighting and a bar right by the pool. The rooftop bar also has a happy hour promotion, where you get 2 drinks for the price of one, we certainly took advantage of this. The alcohol was decent, the mix was balanced, we really enjoyed it. Food: Breakfast is a buffet from 6:30 to 11 am! It’s very cool that you don’t have to run and rush, like in Turkey, where you have about 2 hours for breakfast. The breakfast itself is very tasty. A very large selection of dishes (with shrimp, sea creatures, chicken, beef, pork), eggs of various types (fried, boiled, poached, etc.), pastries, fruits, yoghurts, muesli, soups/porridges, coffee/tea. We were more than pleased with the breakfast. We already miss him very much. We tried to eat in the hotel restaurant, the prices were about the same as in the cafe where we often ate, the portions were large, everything was delicious. Only there was no one, and we were alone. Number: We were also very lucky with the view from the room, it was very beautiful, with trees and the road, a lot of greenery, not window to window. Perhaps not the most picturesque view, but after gray Samara in April, where there was still snow, this view was simply lovely. In my opinion, everything in the room was thought out! Large room, large bathroom. In the room: safe, wardrobe with hangers, large TV, huge bed, many pillows, medium-hard mattress (we really liked it), kitchenette with sink, refrigerator, dishes and kettle, sofa (it also folds out), table with two chairs , there is a separate chair for makeup, a balcony with a dryer, chairs and a table. The number is straight up! 👍🏻 In the bathroom: toilet, shower, separate bathtub, huge mirror, countertop and a huge glass window. The air conditioner worked well, it didn’t make much noise for us inside the room, the unit was noisy outside, but that’s its job, for example, the air conditioner didn’t interfere with my reading on the balcony. Every day they changed towels and brought new water. In our room we ate a lot of fruit from a nearby shop and heated some snacks in the microwave. If you add literally 2 small shelves above the safe in the closet for things, then it would be great so that all things could be neatly put in the closet. Road to the beach: The walk to the beach from the hotel takes 5-7 minutes, you need to cross the road, along a pedestrian crossing. Aaaand... no one stops. You have to wait until there is a window between the cars or go ahead, the latter is categorically not recommended. Yes, the traffic here is not so dense, so it’s better to wait. Next you need to walk along the stinking river, but this is a very short distance. And then the sea and the beach and the sand! 🤩 On the beach there is shade from trees, sunbeds with umbrellas, fruit stalls and cafes. There are transfers from the hotel to the beaches of Kamala and Surin. Location and what's nearby: Near the hotel there is a massage parlor, benches, a cafe and an exchange office, but it is presented in 1-3 copies. Everything is at affordable prices, just like everywhere else in general. We mostly went to cafes and ate seafood. Also, almost across the fence, there are 2 large entertainment parks FantaSea and Carnival Magic; we didn’t go to the parks themselves, but we admired the beautiful lighting from the roof of the hotel. On the beach there is a large club-bar Cafe del Moar, which organizes shows and parties every day; a lot of people gather there in the evenings and is very popular. We tried a massage, it was absolutely great, it was very clean, there was air conditioning, very friendly staff, reasonable prices. According to the location of the hotel, the shortcomings are that you can only cross the road and that shops like 7/11 are a bit far away, and even if there was a normal fenced sidewalk, then we could walk, but this does not apply to the hotel, this is the overall flavor of the country. We got used to taking a taxi around the island, it was very convenient and fast, even cheaper than a tuk-tuk. Especially if you cooperate, it will be generally beneficial. Hotel population: there are many Russians and guests from Kazakhstan. There are also Europeans, but there are very few of them. I didn’t meet any Chinese in the 10 days I was there. We really liked the hotel 🥰 It was very sad to leave, if we go to Thailand to Phuket again, we will definitely stay in this hotel again.

The hotel does not deserve 5 stars. Pros: good design, great for photos on Instagram - but finding the right time to take a photo is almost impossible. Minuses: 1. very few sunbeds by the pools. We are relaxing here for more than 10 days! - impossible to lie down. On the few sunbeds there are shared towels, the sunbeds on the sides of the pool belong to the rooms on the first floor. On the roof there are mostly bar stools, places to lie down are limited to about 7, probably. 2. Disgusting coffee in the morning. Although there are several coffee machines, they all make burda. Today, for example, there was milk diluted with water. 3. Poor quality cleaning - only changing linen and towels. 4. Now only one of the two elevators is working, you have to wait for 10 minutes; it often arrives packed with people and staff with carts. 5. Lack of towels, when asking for beach towels there are often no towels. 6. Problems with the Internet, we watched movies in 360 quality, because higher quality did not load. 7. The laundry service was also disappointing - the fresh stains on the T-shirt were not removed. In general, the hotel is clearly not worth the amount paid for the vacation. It’s better to pay attention to well-known 5-star chain hotels for the same amount.

The hotel is absolutely new, the rooms are chic with a kitchenette, there is a microwave (when you are too lazy to go to a cafe, you heat up a ready-made lunch from Seven for 60 baht, and have a very nice dinner on the balcony). Awesome king size bed, excellent, unobtrusive cleaning every day. The hotel staff is very friendly, the check-in deposit is 100 dollars, we paid 10,000 rubles, that’s also possible. Breakfasts are a separate story, the first 5 days we ate like two stray dogs, it’s hard to resist, because seafood is in abundance (there were no lobsters and oysters, everything else is there), beef, pork, chicken, octopus, duck steaks, rolls, fruits (very sweet watermelons and pineapples, langans, passion fruit always). Cool pool on the roof, open all night, at night it is illuminated in the form of a starry sky). Free transfer from the hotel to the far end of Kamala and Surin 3 times a day, there and back - it's super convenient. Kamala is damn good, we loved her right side behind DelMar more. I don’t recommend the first cafes on the sand, at the beginning of the pedestrian path from DelMar, it might have happened by accident, but we were poisoned by rapana on the first day and didn’t eat there again. Then there are a bunch of excellent restaurants at any price, much more civilized. The exchange rate near the hotel is low; it is better to change in Kamala itself. There is also a wonderful night market, we bought lobsters, they cooked them there very decently on the grill with garlic, decently and inexpensively. There are a sea of shops nearby - there is Big C (like our Lenta) and SuperChip (more like Fix Price)). In general, the hotel is magnificent, there is virtually nothing to complain about. There were no working Russian channels on TV, but maybe that was for the best)) We recommend it to everyone - it felt like you were living in an apartment that had just undergone expensive renovations)

A new, beautiful hotel that met all expectations. We were checked in exactly at 14.00, although at 8 am we were already at the reception, but the hotel was 100% occupied. They take a deposit, for a room 100 dollars or 3000 baht, you can spend it in the bars at the hotel, the balance is returned upon departure. And so the room: spacious, stylish, large bathroom, good hair dryer (the girls will understand me, you don’t have to bring your own). There is a beach bag and even flip flops for the beach. Breakfast is simply great! Sushi, shrimp, mussels, duck and also European food, no porridge, keep in mind, there was cereal with milk. Excellent coffee for every taste. The area is beautiful, everything is new, no chips or dirt. There is a swimming pool downstairs and also on the roof with a bar in the water (swim/dive), lounge area, pleasant music, we hung out here more often. The gym is small, nice view from the window. The beach is across the road, there are bars, fruit shops, pharmacies, currency exchange. There are no toilets or changing rooms on the beach (but this is typical for Thai), sun lounger + umbrella 200 baht. The hotel has a free shuttle to Surin Beach, I liked it better, go straight to the right, it’s more beautiful there. Kafe Del Mar is an excellent disco, just like in Ibiza, fun, great music! I recommend the massage parlor next to the hotel. The best massage therapist is a young guy (I think his name is Hot), sometimes I came across Thai girls who hurt me, then I only went to him. There is also a cafe with a thatched roof next to the hotel, I recommend having dinner, the portions are simply huge. Taxi to Patong one way 500 baht / 1300 rubles. I hope my review will be useful. I recommend the hotel from the bottom of my heart! The staff is darling, doing everything possible to make sure you enjoy your vacation!

The hotel is new, the rooms are large, comfortable, comfortable beds, excellent linen, pillows, bathrobes🙏. They give you a bag and comfortable rubber slippers for the beach - if you want to pick it up, you have to pay when leaving. The breakfasts are plentiful, you won't go hungry for sure. But there is no aesthetics in them, just eating. The pools are very beautiful, pleasant, they are not for swimming, splashing around, taking cool photos. Great for kids!! Clean, comfortable and elegant. Super cocktails at the rooftop bar. It’s not far from the sea, I recommend going not to the left, but to the right from the bridge. To the left is a good beach, clean, the sea is super. But the sun loungers for rent are cheap old dirty plastic, much better just on a towel under a palm tree. And you should know this, opposite this part of the beach, right in the immediate vicinity there is an old cemetery - not that it bothers me much, but there is a sediment, it is behind the fence, but close. To the right is the beach opposite the Intercontinental and Novotel hotels, cool expensive cafes, different aesthetics. The end of the beach with boulders, it’s interesting to wander around there. I recommend going there. By taxi for 300-500 Baht you can go to Bang Tao, Patong, or wherever you want. Next to the hotel there is a mini shop - like cola, fruit - great to buy. Walk to the supermarket - forget it, it’s unrealistic. The prices there are high. Bring alcohol to your room from duty free. I definitely recommend the hotel. Just don’t be capricious if you bought a tour for 400 thousand and not a million. I wish you a great holiday!

Very beautiful rooms. Perfect bed and bedding. The room has everything for a comfortable stay. There is a mini kitchen. The pool on the roof is intended only for swimming; there are no places on the sunbeds, as well as the sunbeds themselves. Several beds that are always occupied. Thai style music by the pool. The ideal solution is to go to the beach. Excellent breakfasts for 5+ Let me add an interesting fact. I always take my slippers from the hotel to the plane. Convenient and comfortable flight. And here I did the same .. but at the reception when checking out I had to pay for them) this was the first time I encountered this.

Excellent value ! The staff is very friendly. Varied and quality breakfast. The catering is good. The location is very good, barely 100m from Kamala Beach and the Cafe Del Mar which has just been renovated. There are activities right in front of the hotel on the beach like jet skiing and others. There are also a whole bunch of small, pleasant and well-priced restaurants 100m from the hotel along the beach. Magnificent sunsets on the beach right in front of the hotel. There are sometimes shows on the beach in front of the hotel, next to the Café Del Mar, with fire jugglers. The situation is really good.

Nice bed, clean room. Friendly staff. But few people speak English well. Objectively, the hotel is 4 stars at best. The food at breakfast was the same every day of 2 weeks, but fresh. Croissants are wonderful if they are fresh, like rubber from yesterday. The floors in the room are poorly cleaned, there is often sand on the floor. Beach towels are provided as much as you want (convenient) and bags in the room for them are also great! The most comfortable disposable ones (as we thought were slippers) turned out to be not disposable! If they are not in the room, then they will ask you for money for each pair, similarly with the laundry bag, everything turned out to be reusable 😂 Be vigilant, check that everything is there when leaving, you didn’t throw anything away, not even dirty disposable slippers! Otherwise, money will be written off from your deposit! Yes, by the way, the deposit upon check-in is 100 dollars per room, they will only give it back after check-out, 15 minutes later. When they check your number. Objectively a good hotel, but definitely not 5 stars. The hotel has exclusively Russian guests and not always with decent behavior, the atmosphere was sometimes like in a Turkish all-inclusive...

Great hotel 👍. We are resting for the 8th day, everything is fine. Cleaning is done daily, shampoos, gels and other supplies are replenished every day. The furniture and all equipment are new. Large smart TV. Bed linen, bathrobes, towels are snow-white. Breakfast is not so luxurious, but everything is fresh and tasty. Each building has 2 elevators, parking is free. 3 minutes walk to the beach.

On the plus side, new comfortable rooms. That's all. The view from the room is either of the slums or of the neighboring building… No territory, small pools, waist deep, no sun loungers There is a constant sewer smell in the parking lot. Breakfast is poor, the restaurant is located in a basement without windows, always crowded This is not 5*, unfortunately, but what a beautiful presentation the hotel has
