Carpe diem has very unusual style, rooms and all the interioir designed in an unexpected manner. And look good and impressive.
This hotel has wonderful location in Bo Phut fisherman's village, not far from the Pier restaurant.
Staff speaks strange language except of the one girl at the reception. It is impossible to get any cooperation in the evening, because the guy who sits in the restaurant doesn't speak.
All the equipment looks pretty old and weary and dirty.
The biggest disappointment for me personally was that despite we had our breakfast included it was impossible to get it.
The whole restaurant was empty except a group of friendly people from China who went to the kitchen and made breakfast for themselves.
May be this is some sort of a neat experience for the guests but was unprepared for this and had to look for breakfast somewhere else.
The amount paid for breakfast wasn't reimbursed after a couple of my requests. I decided to seize the argument.
