We stayed here for 5 nights and could have stayed many more!! The bungalows were basic, but had all that we needed, we were right on the beach!! The beach was private and just around the point from the main stretch of Chaweng beach. The water was crystal clear, as warm as bath water and flat. Our room was cleaned... More

They went to the airport to collect us from the ferry. We specifically booked a room that was absolute beach front and had to really push to get it.The staff are clearly unhappy and could do with some contemporary training ....... There were many positives too- Great location, quite at night. But the pack of dogs threatening guests and the... More

Beautiful location on a quiet private beach, accommodation very comfortable, maids in everyday with fresh bedding and towels. Had a little problem... More

Turned up to be seen to by possibly the rudest receptionist on the island, after she was done shouting at a couple next to us we were shown to our 'deluxe' room even though we had requested a beach bungalow. If that was deluxe I don't want to see the standard. Single beds and a decor straight from the 40's... More

I loved this hotel. We got a beach front bungalow and it was worth every penny. The room was clean (although by the third day there were ants in the bathroom), the location was great and it came with breakfast. My only complaint is that not all beach front bungalows are truly beach front. Some are partial views or obstructed... More

Great location close to Chaweng Beach and Chaweng Noi Beach, but in a quiet corner of the beach, even it there is walking distance to restaurants. We stayed in the hotel rooms in a separate building, not the bungalows on the beach or the main building. Friendly staff, good breakfast, and nice pool location. A good place for kids. Overall...

We found this place nice and clean, good sized quiet pool open until 10pm, lovely breakfast buffet, direct beach access always a bonus. About a 25 minute flat but humid walk in the evening to the main bar restaurant part of Chewang, but lack of pavements at times as usual for these parts. A taxi was 300 baht for the... More
