I have just come back from ten days at the Sala Talay, Ao Nang, with my husband. We both enjoyed it very much and looked forward to getting back to the cool room each day. It was always clean and cool with fresh towels (although there was a note that said that if you left the towels on the rail they would not be changed to help save water this was not done and is one minor complaint).
We had a pool room which meant we had direct access from our terrace. As much as I did not think this would be that important, it was and we enjoyed sitting on our own terrace on our own sunbeds and getting walking down into the pool.
The mini bar in the room was great and on the whole cheaper than drinks at the bar - apart from happy hour which was from 4-6.30pm - nice cocktails.
Breakfast was at the front of the hotel and olverlooked the ocean - I loved this! The menu did get a bit repetitive but on the whole it was good. However, do watch that everything is covered and don't eat anything that isn't like the pancakes or the little cakes that sit open on the side.
The hotel provide a mozzie plug but I still got bitten quite badly - tiger balm was purchased and helped but the best thing is to take your own Deet which you can pick up from Millets or the like.
There were a few complaints from some people regarding the pool - things like a brick missing and some people believing it wasn't clean enough but we had no trouble and you must remember where you are.
The air con worked well every night unlike some place I have been and we only had a power cut once for a short while.
The location of the hotel meant it was a bit outside the main resort but that wasn't a problem for us and we liked walking into the town at night past all the restaurants, tailors and massage parlours - though you do get a bit tired of saying no thank you after a while.
