“Best price-quality-ratio in Ao Nang”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2011

We visited Haleeva Sunshine in Dec 2010/Jan 2011 for a 8-night stay. Already at the arrival the friendly staff and the cleanliness of the facilities catched our eyes. Especially the manager Sun and his employee Oil were honestly friendly amd were always prepared to help and support us in all issues. The room was very nice and perfectly clean. The bed was comfortable and the A/C was pretty quiet. Breakfast was average but fresh and tasty. The location of the hotel was great. It's approx. a 10 minutes walk down to the beach whereas restaurants, bars and shops can be reached within a couple of minutes. But therefore it is much quiter than at the busy and touristic beachside.
The unique negative aspect was the mosque across the street which guarenteed a free-of-cost wake up call in morning. But ear plugs are cheaper and more comfortable than in Europe...!
Thank you very much for our pleasent stay Sun and Oil!

Sawasdee Krub Marion and Tobiass ,
Thanks for your review indeed.
^^ It's good to know that you are satisfied with our clean and nice room. Further than that 1 of our 4 aims is that customer service. We work without pattern or form just only to succeed customer's need as much as possible from the beginning I get customer's booking and until they leave our hotel. We 'd love to have both negative and positive comments since it shows how customer pay attention to what they are dealing with and how the hotel concerns about issues.
For the mosque pray , it's already finished now ^^ ( around middle of february ).
Please let me know what I can do for you.
Sincerely yours ,
Sun

My partner and I stayed here for 4nights. Sun(Manager) and the rest of the staff were great, helpful and very polite.

The hotel has a swimming pool, Free WIFI, breakfast buffet and also you can hire towel and beach mat as free of charge. Laundry service is very cheap it costs only about $1.50 per kilo not a per an items. The location is only 10 mins walk away from ao nang beach but you can hire a motorbike easily it costs only $7 per day. it is amazingly cheap.

I don't recommend hotel very near ao-nang beach because it could be noisy when you sleep so I liked it here even 10mins walk away. There are lots of shops like 7 eleven., starbucks, MC donalds and etc. It is only 2mins walk away from this hotel

I will definitely come back to aonang and this hotel.

A very friendly hotel who will do all they can to make you feel welcome. The owner Sun is very service minded and always happy. There was no kettle or hairdryer in our room but that was soon fixed without any problem. The hotel is small with a family feel and the rooms are very claen. The only small problem was the traffic noise by night but that we soon got use to and that it was about 1km to the beach but see that as a nice morning walk. Good value for money. Can well recomend a stay here.

This hotel is clean and spacious. The staff is okay- not overly friendly but certainly not rude. There are two computers in the lobby with pretty fast internet (comparatively speaking, to the rest of Thailand!).

The beach is a 10 or 15 minute walk away, depending on how quickly you can encourage yourself to walk by all of the shops! There are lots of restaurants nearby, as well as places to have a drink.

The pool was... interesting. I think they put green tiles in it, which I will never understand! From the view in our room, it looked like it was covered in algae... we didn't go near it!

All in all, a good package, and certainly good value for your money.

A great friendly place, where we were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived.

The hotel has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Clean and well appointed rooms are serviced daily by staff who care. The pool is a good size and well maintained, we had no trouble getting a sun lounger when we wanted.

We stayed in a room facing the road where we enjoyed people watching from the balcony. The road noise did not bother us at all.

Breakfast contains a good choice of items and has a great little bloke who takes pride in cooking your eggs just the way you like them!

The highlight for us was the staff. Sun has owned this hotel for about six months now and together with his staff they have created a great atmosphere, where they go out of their way to ensure you are enjoying your stay with them and your holiday overall. Sun, Oil and the team helped us book tours, cars, motobikes and gave genuine opinions on how best to spend our time. They gave good advice on tours to choose and places to see when we decided to go sightseeing on our own. For us, staying in a place where you have people to genuinely help you and rely on, is the key to a good holiday.

We stayed in Ao Nang for six nights but only pre-booked our first night in a cheap hotel online for somewhere to crash as we were arriving late. The next morning we set about looking for somewhere to stay for the rest of our visit. We visited five different hotels and, although some of the others were cheaper per night, we were most impressed with Haleeva. Sun, the owner, was extremely welcoming and helpful throughout our stay, arranging trips to the islands, advising us of the best beaches and generally going out of his way to make our holiday as enjoyable as possible. I must mention that Oil, another member of staff, was particularly helpful also on out last day, arranging taxis, allowing us to use the office printer for out online boarding cards and generally being really cheerful (she keeps a 1 Baht coin in her ear - bizarre, but amusing, a real character). We stayed in a luxury room which was beautiful with air con, huge bathroom and a jacuzzi on the balcony that overlooked the pool, the limestone cliffs and jungle in the distance - all for less than half the price of a dodgy B&B in Brighton! The rooms were spotless, there was free WiFi and the buffet breakfast was good - although some items did run out later in the morning.

What we liked best - the room and the service. Particularly loved the balcony with the view and jacuzzi.

What we liked least - this is a hard one because we are trying to think of something negative and actually can't without being trivial. Could do with double glazing at the front windows for the noise from the road, I have read it has bothered other reviwers but to be honest we always had such full days we had no problem sleeping. It could be nearer the beach but if it was, there'd be more noise so that's the pay-off.

Well what can I add about what has already been said about this hotel ? First of all - thankyou Sun for making us feel so welcome - nothing was too much trouble for you and your staff!! I was well impressed with you all and would be well happy to give any of you a job , you are a credit to the hotel, always happy and smiling. The hotel is immaculate and the rooms are cleaned to perfection. Breakfast could be improved but it was adequate. Downside is no lift for upper floors. Upside is here is a guy who wanted feedback - wanted to improve his hotel and not be defensive
