“Average but good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013 via mobile

We expected a bit more after seeing their website and Booking.com photos. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is generally good (curries especially) but breakfast is lacking in seating and a typical poor Asian breakfast. The pool is nice but in a whole day it literally gets 1.5 hours of sun as it is obscured by the cliff. The fan rooms were very basic for the price and there were lots of cracks in the bathroom and front door so it wasn`t very mosquito proof. Bit of a walk from town but there is hourly shuttle busses for free.

Booked this based on the positive reviews and the cheap price. We booked 4 nights but left after 1, first time I've ever left a hotel early.

The hotel is very out of the way and far from everything, our taxi driver couldn't find it and had to call. We don't mind walking but to walk to town from here was quite far and not a nice walk- no lights or sidewalks.

First impression wasn't good. Lady who checked us in was very unfriendly. More rustic looking place than I expected. Guy who carried my bag to the room was the only friendly smiling person we encountered at this place.

Room was large. However very sterile looking, maybe like a prison as in not homey or warm and smelled very musty. AC worked great and the kettle and coffee and tea was nice to have. Bed was comfortable, but noticed in the morning that the sheets and comforter were very dirty. Covered in stains and I found a bunch of hairs on the sheets that were not mine. Curtains were also filthy, stained and smelly.

The best part of the place was the pool. Looked nice but not very big. All the birds running loose were neat but not sure how sanitary this is.

Not enough seating for the breakfast. The staff were asking for the room number before sitting down and not in a friendly manner. Okay selection but quality was poor. Someone was cooking eggs to order but they looked so miserable.

After breakfast we told the front desk we wanted to check out early. No zsking why or if there was anything they could do, nothing at all, they didn't care at all. We had to pay one night penalty for early check out but we were just happy to leave.

We stayed at Ao Nang Cliff View resort for 2 nights towards the end of our trip. Below are the pros and cons of staying here.

Pros:
• The layout of the resort was beautiful with a jungle setting. It had a nice pool overlooking vertical cliffs. The resort has a lot animals and birds including peacocks which roam about quite freely.
• They offer an hourly shuttle service to Ao Nang beach from 8 AM to 10 PM which was very convenient.
• We chose the standard bungalow. Nice room décor, though no view.

Cons:
• Limited breakfast spread

I would recommend staying at Ao Nang Cliff view resort for those seeking a quieter vacation away from the hustle & bustle of beachside properties in Ao Nang.

Room Tip: The standard bungalows are good value for money.

Stay two days at this great n romantic place to relax. It was fantastic if you were those who love quiet and natural. Not a place for those who love shopping and crowded. As everyone say...the pool is the best place here. The water was clean n cool and as the high cliff beside it block off the afternoon sun..you can relax there the whole afternoon to the evening. Next was the tree top like restaurant. The food there is nice n cheap. Almost the same price or even cheaper than those eating place located at aonang road about 500 meter away. Outside your room during good weather, you can hear the original forest orchestra music. This place if lucky you can see monkey, squirrel, monitor lizard and all sort of bird. They also got rear cow, goat, chicken, rabbit, pea cock, mouse deer n turkey. Take the free shuttle service to aonang beach and you can shop and eat with many choices. By walking back along aonang road to the hotel you can see the high cliff on your right side. Look carefully and you can see a part of the cliff look like a black bear open the mouth wide. Another one look like a tiger mouth opening showing it teeth.(see picture attached) Taxi fare from airport is 600 baht. You can arrange with the same taxi to pick you up again when check out.

Room Tip: Book the aircond type if you don't want mosquito bite.

we loved this place set in amongst stunning scenery and jungle with only the sounds of the monkeys and other animals it really is a idyllic setting ,the bungalows are basic but very comfortable and incredibley good value
breakfast was ok plenty of variety and the staff very helpful with any questions and quick to help when needed
Though about 15 mins from the beach they provide a free shuttle bus on the hour for pick up and return and moped hire is available from the hotel.
This really was a great find for us and would definetly return we had a great stay.

Wow! Amazing location, beautiful pool, great staff, and delicious breakfast! We stayed at the Cliff View for a week in November with our 2 kids, ages 4 and 6 and we all thought it was paradise! It feels like a dream when you get there, such a beautiful setting, right in the jungle, with the cliffs as a backdrop. They have lots of wildlife and livestock there, and the kids loved it. We booked a fan room originally, but upgraded before even seeing it as the humidity and heat there was crazy! The room was great, lots of storage and space for all of us. We loved sitting on the deck in the evening and listening to the nightly thunderstorms, as well as the beautiful chanting of the nearby monks. I received a massage while we were here and it was great too. Seriously, the whole time there felt unreal and like a dream, it was so perfect! The breakfast was great, fruit from the market, fresh eggs, toast, danishes, muffins, yogurt, muesli, cereal.... something for everyone, and all delicious! The pool was beautiful, and so refreshing after a day at the beach. (they have beach towels to borrow) The staff were great, all friendly :) My husband became friends with Richard, the shuttle driver, and we were very sad to leave here. The last morning we woke up to monkeys running on the roof, which my kids loved. I would go back in a second, and recommend to anyone!

Room Tip: a basic a/c room is great for 2 adults and 2 kids. it does cool off at night though, so a fan room w...

We absolutely loved staying here. The whole character of the place is so different from any of the usual run of the mill holiday hotels. It is a little run down in some areas, perhaps a little old, but it made no difference to our enjoyment of the place. The shuttle driver, Ritcha, was great, so friendly and so helpful, so were all the girls in the restaurant, including the lady in charge. Also, the gardeners and general helpers were all so happy and always seemed to be genuinely pleased to see you.

I would not have enjoyed Krabi so much if I wasn't staying in this hotel, or should I say my tree house in the jungle! I would definitely return here and would recommend it to anyone looking for something a little different. Make sure and pack your mosquito repellent as it is after all set in the jungle! We absolutely adored the monkeys which regularly visited the pool area and once or twice tried to join us for breakfast!

A huge thank you to all the staff here, their attitude and the general character of the hotel really made our holiday.

Room Tip: We stayed here for two weeks in a standard room which was perfect (I believe the 'fan room'...
