My boyfriend and I just returned from a 10 night stay at the Happy Elephant. Andrea and his wife made us feel at home and all staff were friendly. Andrea upgraded our room for free as the holiday company we booked with had arranged for us to stay in a small room, not really comfortable for 2 to stay in for the duration of our holiday. Andrea also sorted out several tours and trips for us at a good rate, including Phi Phi Islands, elephant trekking and Fantasea show.
The hotel has free wi-fi, which we never had any problems accessing. It is only a small hotel, very clean and extremely well looked after with a lovely atmosphere. There is a good sized pool and we never had to fight for a sun bed. We ate breakfast at the hotel a few times. The food was good and a very good price.
We were very well looked after at the Happy Elephant and they couldn't do enough for us. It really was a pleasure staying at the Happy Elephant and I would recommend it to anyone of any age.
There is a lovely restaurant opposite the hotel, the Cashew Nut, which we visited on many occasions, also a taxi service and small shop where you can buy food and other essentials. Andrea's dog, Kapow, was absolutely adorable and very friendly, although he won't bug you if don't talk to him.
I honestly don't have a bad word to say about the Happy Elephant and I would definitely visit again.
