We stayed in Krabi Resort for 1 week in March 2010. When entering the hotel exhausted after a long flight, we were welcomed with a somewhat lazy reception. We had to wait for quite a while for a car to pick us up to our hotel building. The area is quite big so they operate guests with a car to the rooms. After this start the service got better for the rest of the week.
We had our room in the newest 4 story building furthest away from the beach. The room was clean and nice with a balcony and a view towards the hills. The air-conditioning was positioned away from the beds, so during the night it was nice. The beds were in normal thai-style quite hard, so that reduces the sleep quality points. I just don´t understand why they don´t understand, that many of us travelers would simply favor a more comfortable bed. But you can´t have it all maybe. The room cleaning was always done well.
The walk to the beach / breakfast restaurant was around 400 meters. The breakfast was a quite standard thai breakfast buffet with a chance to sit either indoors or out at the bank of the beach. The service for eggs or pancakes or for filling the coffee cups was a little varied. Sometimes really charming and friendly, sometimes not. Also the food variety was maybe a little limited, so towards the end of our stay we had the breakfast elsewhere.
We did not have lunch / dinner at the hotel. There were numerous food stands for lunch just outside hotel gate and they served a great, cheap local dishes. There was also a local food market for dinner on the opposite side of the road with great food.
The massage services inside hotel area was not too attracting. There was good alternative massage stall at the very end of Ao Nang beach beside the hotel.
Krabi Resort is the only Hotel in Ao Nang that has a somewhat private beach. The beach was relaxed and not crowded at all, which was nice. But Ao Nang beach is a bit dirty and you have to be careful when walking in water. Luckily there are gorgeous beaches a short boat trip away.
The Hotel has a perfect location at the end of Ao Nang beach. Most of the restaurants / bars etc. were on that end of the beach / Ao Nang. All the walking distances to Ao Nang were relatively short. Boats to railey beach and the islands leave 200 meters from the Hotel.
As a resort the hotel is good, but when considering the great location and what Ao Nang has to offer, it is highly recommended.
