We have just returned from a five day stay at this hotel. Originally we had booked at the sister hotel [La Playa] but we changed the booking due to being advised by the hotel of some renovations taking place there.
We had a fantastic stay, and I would go back in a heartbeat. It is located at the Western end of Ao Nang and is therefore a little quieter than some, but still just a short stroll to the many restaurants and bars in the main street.
We loved our pool-access room, which was large and well-appointed. The bathroom was very spacious, with large shower and [deep] bath. Bathroom opened out into the main room via sliding shutters, and had a second flatscreen TV on the wall, which was a nice touch. Note - not all rooms are laid out the same way - we were in Room 1010.
Guests at The Small Hotel can also use the facilities at La Playa. This was handy since there is no swim up bar at The Small - something we REALLY enjoy. We had breakfast and lunch at La Playa also - mainly because there was more there. I found the breakfast perfectly fine, and was happy with the service. Lunch menu is very extensive and reasonably priced.
The main pool at The Small is smallish but good, and as other reviewers have mentioned, the rooftop pool is also nice. Great for sunbathing, but no facilities up there.
As we were traveling in the slow season, we got a great deal on the room [Stay 5 nights, pay for 3] which made it much better value than other comparable resorts in Ao Nang.
Overall - a great stay.
