Good location near Ao Nang and Nopharatthara beaches. Clean breakfast area with decent spread. Clean rooms - minimal décor - hard bed - very good room rate.
Booked/paid for a king size bed and was given twin beds at check in, insisted and was moved to a room with a king size bed after some reluctance, by the staff on duty.
Our room was 2 doors away from the ground level reception desk.Had a scary experience on our first night-someone was trying to force open our door at around 4a.m., started rattling and shaking the door, they couldn't get it to open, I could hear voices in the corridor, all speaking Thai, called reception --no response, didn't open the door as we were unsure what was happening, finally at around 4.15am the reception phone was answered, asked why they were trying to open our door, the girl asked if we were in the room and hung up, within a few seconds they started rattling and shaking the door again and this went on till 4.30a.m.
We didn't want to open to door because we didn't feel safe, one of the voices sounded very drunk or possibly high on dope.
Finally at 4.30a.m. this stopped--couldn't sleep through the rest of the night and felt very unsafe.
Went up to the reception all bleary eyed in the morning, the girl said that the hotel had moved us to a different room but the night reception staff were not aware of this and a guest was trying to enter our room. She didn't seem too concerned and was very casual about the whole thing. No explanation from her about why the guest/hotel staff were trying to force open our door from 4a.m through 4.30 a.m. even after we called reception and confirmed that we were inside the room.
Asked to speak with the Manager, very nice lady, she regretted the incident and proffered an apology.
I hope this doesn't happen again to another of their guests.
