Hotel grounds are stunning... Lovely well maintained gardens and easy access to the beach. Rooms are a bit dark and dingy and in need of a good makeover. I have no problem with traditional thai style decor but, compared to other hotels we have stayed in for a better rate, room was a little shabby. Bathroom needs a good overhaul and the curtains have more than seen better days. Comfy bed though and good air conditioning.
Housekeeping staff were lovely and left us little treats each day. We were in room 334. My partner had his 40th birthday whilst we were there and the staff made our room look lovely. The cake I pre ordered was delicious.
Got a transfer from the pier and although the driver was lovely, it isn't worth the 1000 baht fee. You can book a 150 baht transfer via the ferry company.
The bar near reception needs a good make over, better lighting and and chairs and a better ambience. We never went there because it never looked inviting. Move the pool table nearer the beach area.
Breakfast choice is great and the restaurant staff were lovely and really friendly. The hot plate staff even accommodated my request to make a toasted cheese sandwich one morning. A Bloody Mary station would be well received as would a better choice of fruit.
Pool areas were lovely. Ate BBQ buffet one night and it was fab. The wee mariachi band were lovely. The food in the restaurant was good but hotel would benefit from having more than one place to eat at night. We might have eaten here more often.
Would stay here again due to easy access to fisherman village and, compared to other local hotels, is good value for money but does need renovation and reception staff do need to be a little bit more jolly.
