Reviewed 6 March 2014

We originally booked in another hotel, "La playa resort", but were transferred to this hotel (right across the street) during check-in and enjoyed it a lot.
The room had a pool access, was very big, compared to other rooms for same price, had an amazing bath and shower, was very high-tech and romantic at the same time.
We enjoyed both pools of the hotel and will definitely come back next time we are in Krabi.

Room Tip: Pick a room with pool access, it's worth it.

The Small is a modern hotel with great location. Rooms are well-equipped - free Wi-Fi, free drinking water every day, efficient AC and handy beach bag in the room. Pool area at the ground level is quite shady but fortunately there is also one at the roof. Breakfast was good and staff was very friendly. Rooms can be a bit noisy because of the traffic. There is nothing more to complain.

All you need is near - taxi, good restaurants, massage and longtail boats at Noppharat Thara beach. Beach street of Ao Nang is only couple of hundred meters away. Try also delicious pancakes from the food stalls next to the hotel.

Stay at the hotel with my wife early last year, we stay at the honeymoon suite for 4D3N. We took the airport transfer service from the hotel, they came to pick us up with a mini bus that without air-con. I think that is too expensive for a poor quality ride. The breakfast is ok, wish they can provide with some special menu that changed daily. Air-con in our room broke down and water leaking out from it on the 2nd night. The technician came to fix it quickly but it keep broke down time to time. We were so frustrating and demand for a room changed. We were transferred to the room at opposite which is smaller but we have no other choice as there is only one honeymoon suite. We were given a free ride to airport on our last day as a compensate of the incident.

Overall we still love the hotel, but they need to improve on those small details thing. Wi-fi is very poor on the honeymoon suite as It is located at the end of the hotel. The swimming pool is a little small but we are fine with that. Location wise it is not at the center of the ao nang street, so you will need a little walk to get to restaurants and shopping.

Loverly little place, with fine rooms and a nice pool on top of the hotel. The breakfast was ok, but the launch was not so good. We had a good experience, and were upgraded to and extended room for free.

We stayed here for 7 nights as part of our honeymoon, in the bridal suite with pool access. The room was large, modern and beautiful. We had direct pool access which was great but our deck was too small for a table and chairs. Also we were at the shady end of the pool and it never saw direct sunlight. This made the pool a little cool. But if we were swimming around it was comfortable. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast was poor. From day to day the selection changed a little but the standard of food remained the same, poor. The location is good being close to beaches, shops and restaurants. We had a leaking ceiling in the bathroom on 2 different days. It was attended to quickly. We had no WIFI for the last 2 days, which did not seem an issue for the manager. To us it was an issue being away from home and not having mobile phones, we needed to have convenient access to email and social media for friends and family. If we returned to Ao Nang we would be looking at other hotels. There are so many to choose from, and I think I could do better next time.

clean, friendly hotel with modern design, very god value for your money. basic but sufficient breakfast, friendly staff at spa and reception not with perfect English speaking skills but always smiling and supportive. about 200 m walk to the beach, and some food hawkers have their regular business in front of the hotel, so there is always good food around (try the mango salad).

the bed is very hard, internet via wifi was free.

Maybe Ao Nang's cutest little resort, this resort was recommended to us by our agent Andaman Sky when our first choice, the Golden Beach, got full for our dates. We had a nice time here as the busiest destination in our very enjoyable 3 stop, whistle-stop tour of the coast, saw Lanta and Phuket too, wish I'd had more time to go and check out some of the southern islands too, which were originally in our itinerary, but we had to tell our agent to take them out for lack of time.
