Krabi Success Beach Resort
Ranked #82 of 110 Hotels in Ao Nang
Reviewed 10 November 2012

My wife and I stayed at this hotel during our honeymoon for about five minutes. The place had a creepy run down ghost town feel to it with two staff running most of the operations. Our room smelled of mold, and cover up deodorizer. The deodorizer was so strong that it gave me trouble with my asthma which I rarely have. The pool was dirty(full of algae) and many of the chairs and cushions were in need of repair. There was a sad kids playground that looked like it hadn't been weeded/mown in a month. Overall the property needs some heavy refurb to live up to the marketing and brochures that advertise the hotel. There appear to be two hotels on the property, the one in front that looks like a palace, and the one in back that is painted yellow. We were at the latter. One other thing to note is that this hotel is located well outside the main ao nang strip,so it's pretty quiet, but a 10-20 minute tuktuk ride to get to activities.

After a night in Phuket we were looking for quite place to stay with easy access to the beautiful beaches...the Success has met our expectations! Really nice and helpful staff, beautiful and clean room with AC and Wifi, delicious breakfast and great pool! We would highly recommend it...it's worth every penny!:)

Very quiet place a little on the farther side of the Ao Nang. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are ok with very big balconies and extremely cpacious bed. Seriously, very big. Most furniture is wooden which actually gives it very distinct "countryside" flavour. No insects detected inside, a couple of mosquitoes outside.

Breakfasts are ordinary but ok and just outside the gates are street food stands with a lot of skeevers, they are intended for the locals and the prices are nice.

On the downside - sometimes hot water just doesn't flow but given the climate that is actually not a big problem.

This trip was to celebrate our 25th wedding annivesary. The hotel and the staff there were GREAT! The atmosphere was just what we were looking for quite and relaxing. The staff was always ready if we needed anything and the young Manager was outstanding in hospitality. We had a wonderful time at Success Beach! And would recommend it highly!

After staying at Phuket it was very nice to be welcomed by the friendly staff of Success beach resort. We were staying in a spacious room on the first floor, overlooking the pool area. The hotel seemed a bit outdated but was being renovated while we stayed here and got a new fresh look with new painting and roof. The hotel is part of the adjacent Ayodhaya hotel which looks like a temple but it has a seperate entrance and pool.

The hotel is situated just outside of Aonang but it is just a short walk over the beach (nice at low tide and sunset) or past minimarket shops, food stalls, restarants and other resorts to get to the main Aonang area.

Improvements could be made on the shower curtain which blows intomthe shower area, the attendence of staff at the pool (nice to order your drinks there) and the availability of fresh fruitshakes for example. The staff and hotel deliver a 4 star service during our stay.

we have just returned to the Success hotel after a few beers... so here goes!!

the staff are AMAZING!! the hotel is tired, but is being refurbed, I think it will be a must stay place when it is finished - at the moment think of it as a britannia hotel (from the UK), it would have been great back in the day but is showing signs of wear now!! if you look at it as a base its great, it's quiet and almost has the Phsyco feel about it in the lobby, but when you get to your room you'll feel like you are in a top notch hotel!!

My girlfriend and I have the traveller mentality so we have gone out of way to speak to the staff, we cannot speak highly enough of them, they are really great!!

Use this place as a base and you will not be dissapointed!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Room Tip: We only had a pool side room, but it was great!!
