“good for a few nights”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

The room is huge, bed too, although its two king singles pushed together so you cant sleep in the middle, my partner and I had to sleep on one king single or it was too uncomfortable. Good distance from everything - it's technically beach views from the balcony but really just a short walk across the road and through a restaurant.
The reason for the average rating is that I emailed them prior to us arriving, asking if they do pick up's from the ferry (my partner was feeling sick and we wanted to get there as easily and quickly as possible) and received no reply. I know they got the email as when we arrived the guy at reception said, oh your from koh tao. It's just bad customer service in my opinion to ignore an email, even if they couldnt pick us up, an email saying as much would be nice. Also the wifi is pretty bad and the remote control didnt work very well. Overall, good for a few days.

Reviewed 18 February 2013

I have stayed here twice, the place may not be the best hotel in Chaweng, but its also far from being the most expensive.
The negatives are the rooms need updating, the Air Con needs updating and the beds and furniture need moving regularly to clean under them - I moved my bed as my sunglasses slid under it and there was a ridiculous amount of dirt & dust there. The TV and units could also do with a bit more attention when being cleaned.

The positives, the staff and owners are friendly and pleasant, you get 2 bottles of water each day in your fridge, you have free coffee downstairs, you are 2 minutes away from Chaweng beach, and at the nice quiet end near First Bungalow. You have a great massage place next door, 3 restaurants on your doorstep, 2 family marts within walking distance, taxis and car hire on the corner just a few steps away and if you get a room at the back its much quieter there.
So for under 1000 baht a night, what more do you want?
