“Not for us”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Visited for 4 days Feb 2014. After 2 days found they DO supply toilet paper, get it from reception.
Appeared mainly Malays stayed here. For coffee there is an urn in reception area. Staff nice enough. Not many on beach, no seats or umbrellas, so swimming before 9am or after 5pm.
No pool. restaurant closed. Local eateries had bare tables...not even salt and pepper. Few shops...not one electrical or DVDs.
Left usual hideaway Koh Samui for this,,,,Never again....Sleepy hollow

Stayed here for 2 nights with my family. We're traveling in a group of 6 adults and 1 infant and took a quad room that was interconnected. Basic amenities though in my opinion is a bit lacking for that kind of price. There's a parking lot that could ger full quite fast. But no hassle as you can park along the stretch of Pantai Cenang Road. It is close to shops and mini-market is just in front of the hotel. There's a tour agency name Ashtar Travel Agency situated in front of the hotel whom service was quite good and with a reasonable too. The motel is situated at the beach which is good if you like to spend a lot of time there. All in all, its an average hotel whereby u may choose to find somewhere elsi that fits your likings.

The place was nice..facilities were all good..very near to the beach..we were happy..however at night we had birthday bash and got a bit noisy..the guard came rushing and looked like he was prepared to attack us..he could have told us in a better manner not to make so much of noise but no he decided to show hostility..apart from that things were ok..

We booked room on the beach side, which was the main advantage of this hotel. Room on ground floor, two steps away from the beach, so we were very happy with the location. Simple room, very clean, the floor was shiny,but it had very thin walls though, we could hear everything from the room next door. Little balcony with table,chairs,handy for drying clothes. Wifi is working only in the reception area. Staff on reception was not friendly but overall it was good experience. If you don't need anything fancy but want to stay on the beach it's a good choice.

There are accommodation facility in two side,One is road side another one is Beach side. Location is very well but service is very poor. No amenities I think even the hotel authority are not careful about amenity.

This is some thing special to stay here. Each night the sound of roaring sea really made me crazy and thrilled. The location is really cool. But the amenities and other service is not upto the mark. Value for money only justified by the locations.

Roadside room is tidy and great location to central, beach & nearby. Not bad experience in their day tours as cheap price.
