We stayed here for 2 nights during Feb 2013.
It seems like a full occupancy since the hotel have only few rooms.
We appreciated the upgraded room that the recep had given us, though we really prefer our orginal room with sea-view. (Upgraded-room is a pool-access room).
After we were checked-in into our room, I realized that the so called Deluxe Sea-view room that we originally booked did not really have a sea-view. As it is being covered by the hotel restaurant building. Since the hotel is only about 3-storey high with the 3rd storey being the Suite, the so-called Deluxe sea-view room could only have a little view of the sea.
We booked the room with the breakfast package, and kind of regret it as the breakfast was not fantastic at all. It was a simple choice of American breakfast and a choice of local food such as Fried noodles or rice, which tasted really horrible. We could easily get a cheaper breakfast at the restaurant nearby.
We loved the huge pool and some other facilities that the hotel provided. (Such as free usage of board games, rental of books and DVD).
During our stay there’s a construction going on right beside our hotel building and unfortunately right beside our room. So during the mid-day afternoon, while we were trying to relax by the pool, we were quite disturbed by the construction noise. Sometimes the construction can goes on till 7pm and even on Saturday. Though the construction is not too loud, it could be a bit disturbing with all the knocking and drilling noise.
On the day of our check-out, we asked the front desk for 1 hour late check-out which we were immediately rejected with a “No, our room is fully booked”. He didn’t even bother to do a check, nor bother to answer us politely. I told them our flight is at 4pm and would really appreciate a half-hour to 1 hour allowance. And again we were answered with a direct “No”. At the end of the day, we check out half hour later than the usual check-out time with no chaser at all.
Overall, hotel is very good for family and couples as it is a bit further from the busy area of Aonang though a walking distance (without the construction of cos). Infront of the hotel, there are a stretch of restaurants/bars for you to have all your meals and chill at night. Beside the hotel, there’s a minimart which is a little bit pricey than the ones at Aonang area itself.
Will try other hotels if I'm coming back to Krabi though we are a Priority Club member.
