We've just left diamond place and really sad to be going. For a really good price we got a great standard of care, the place was immaculate with rooms cleaned whether you wanted it or not, free water and breakfast everyday, on paper it looks far but it was only 5-8min walk to beach and another 15min to heart of ao nang, please don't let the distance put you off, it's a nice walk and there are loads of tuk tuks around to give you a lift cheaply.
There is free WiFi unfortunately not in rooms but there is a massive communal area to use the WiFi and great way to meet other folk and a pool table and ping pong.
The owner was very helpful and even making sure we ate breakfast so didn't get sick on boats and she really cares about her guests and hotel and it really shows.
There was a Thai boxing stadium right next to the hotel which is on 2 nights a week which might put people off (with young children etc) but we didn't find it a problem and the owner even offered to move us to another room but we found it fine and quite interesting to listen to
Really couldn't fault the place for what we got it was excellent value and have no complaints.
