Reviewed 29 July 2012

Thanks God, we only stay for one night. if i have to back to this hotel, i prefer stay more days on phiphi island ^^ V

the tide was low on afternoon/ evening. so when we arrived, we can swim. because coral and rocks everywhere. so quite and boring : ( nothing to do

the tide was high at morning, so we can swim. the beach is blue and clean. but so many people from across (phuket) come to swim and have fun. crowded. good also

the staf are friendly, the food (dinner and bfast) also good.

the swimming pool is clean enough. the room is also nice (bungalow).

Much like the rest of Thailand, it doesn't look like any maintenance or up-keep has been done since it was built - from the looks of the decore in the rooms, this must have been late 70's (but for $40 a night who's complaining) However, the Coral gardens just off shore live up to the Island name. Snorkelling over the coral and fish was spectacular, even though the visability was less than 10 metres and the coral looked mostly dead, colourless and covered in silt.

Nice place with simple but totally ok bungalows. Cleaning is ok, less insects than what we expected in a place like this. Some geckos, ants and mosquitos, most outside.

About 5 m from the beach which I/we went here for. Wouldn´t be the same without a beachfront bungie here.

Beach is very nice when the tide is mid to high. Not so beautiful at low tide when all the corals show, Water is really when the ocean is calm. Sand is really good and white but many corals in the water.

Restaurant is good and the buffet was also good most of the time. Big bonus that our small kids 3 and 4 years could eat from the buffet for free. Saved us a lot of money.

Staff was great, helpful and good at english. They helped us with medicine from mainland for free, same with flowers for valentines day. Of course we gave good tip for this.

Its definitely worth the little rough 15 min walk to Monkey beach. Its more beautiful, better sand with much better bottom in the ocean. The water is also clearer here.

I´d really recommend this place in a Beachfront bungalow for a few days stay for couples. For families and relaxers maybe a week. We booked 9 days beacuse it gives a family like us with smaller children, quite a lot freedom with no traffic or other disturbances that can affect the childrens safety.

The pool by the way is quite big and nice. There are wild monkeys on the island that sometimes come down here but we didn´t get any closer than hearing them.

There is monitors (lizards) on the end of the beach, coming down in the afternoons. They are well worth a visit.

Again beautiful location, but food very poor, very quiet in the evenings, resort desperately needs updating and new management!

We stayed for ten days and had a very relaxing holiday. This resort is great if you are not expecting full on entertainment but just need a quiet time. The beach is lovely and the snorkeling was stunning. The rooms were clean and changed daily. The service was very friendly and we were very welcomed. Some of the promised facilities were not present such as massage, boat trips and some of the resort is looking rather tired. I guess the managment make money so why bother upgrading things. A shame as the location is lovely. Yes there are lots of day trippers but you can easily escape to the pool which is generally clean. No electricty for several hours a day but this really wasn't a problem. The food was good and we were always made to feel welcome. Not a top resort but not terrible as some reviews have claimed.

Resort is unfortunately not entirely as portrayed, small littered beach besieged by tourists (usually Japanese and were so obnoxious they kept them at a separate bar in the evenings), no electric for 5-6 hours a day, cold salty showers, damp musty smelling rooms and very rude young male receptionist. The deck chairs on the beach were small and half didn't have any material on them! The noise of the crickets is virtually constant and drives you mad.

The only positive things were the waiting staff in the restaurant and the head chef were lovely and helpful. Oh, and the hornbills were stunning. The food was ok but not exactly cheap.

Shame - could be lovely. We booked for 5 nights and only stayed 3...

I wouldn't waste £50 getting a return boat there, there are much nicer places in Phuket.

10 years ago this resort may hv been up there in quality and facilities now it is dated poorly maintained and staff are care free w no personality. The checkin process is greeted w distain and total in interest by staff the rooms are poorly maintained w the smell of sewerage very strong , shower facilities in room is barely a trickel, the pool is falling apart and cloudy at best, the groups of Chinese day visitors makes the resort even more chaotic. The beach is littered w rubbish and coral debris the beach is extremely rough w no visibilty to snorkel and coral is non existent. The good is very basic and stale at best. There is so much potential but clearly the interest us only on the day to day income the only friendly staff were those in the restaurant of which they should be on reception for there great language ability and friendliness. In short this resort is tired not maintained and lacks the presence if staff wanting to be there ...Sadly Total fail.
