Beautiful beach indeed, very friendly staff, beautiful garden... All of this is true.We enjoyed staying there. Really, however, if you choose the place, you have to know a few things before booking a room.
For instance, you are informed at arrival that you have hot water from 6.00 to 8.00 AM, and 4.00 to 6.00 PM. A bit early if you want to enjoy the sea at the best time of the day (6.00 PM). Air cond stops at 7.00 AM and starts again at 1.00 PM. You can have more... if you pay 5 USD per hour which, locally, is a fortune !
The rooms are quite big, just like the TV screen ;-), but very dark. No fan, just air conditioning (brand new and working well though). The rooms' cleanliness is fair, not more. For instance, hey would sweep the floor, but not wash it as you might check if you walk barefoot in you room...
Just like anywhere in Myanmar, the level of English is very poor. Not specific to this hotel though.
The food is OK, especially if you like fried food. Not innovative, but a basic classical menu (fried rice, fried fish, club sandwich, basic pastas, grilled fish...).
Internet DOES NOT work. The connection from the lobby works a few minutes per day only, if you are lucky, and is then so slow that you give up using internet. But obviously, the problem is the same in all other hotels of the area.
Altogether, at international standard, the hotel would rank between 3 stars (big rooms, situation on the beach, nice swimming pool, friendly staff) and two stars (cleanliness, English level, food). In any case, and even if the place in very nice and if we enjoyed staying there, it is largely overpriced. Not a problem.... if you know it before you get there!
