My wife and I wanted a long weekend off to relax. And we did, but....
Plus points: the reservations went well, the pickup van was right there when we stepped out of Krabi airport, the drive to the hotel was lovely. The hotel is located close to the beach (across the road, which is the best you can get in Ao Nang), fairly quiet, yet also a short walk away from shops and restaurants. We had a pool access room, which is great for all you water babies. A lovely setting when you step out onto the balcony....
Minus points: The staff were mostly excellent, but a few seemed truculent, a little over par for the course. The room we had was a tad noisy since the pool bar was close by and fairly loud music was on for a good part of the day and evening. But we got used to it.... What we didn't get used to was the shower, which tended to collect water within seconds - and which took hours to drain - clearly a structural problem. Folks, this was Room 4109, which you may wish to avoid.... Above all, the food was less than mediocre - honestly, the worst hotel meals we have had in ages - and I travel a lot! The dinner buffet was seriously disappointing. Eat out if you can! Try the Lae Lay Grill - great food, a lovely hilltop location with a view, and they pick you up and drop you for free.
Tip: Ask the staff how to ensure the air conditioning does not cut off - it happens every time you open the balcony doors and fail to align the doors just right when shutting them.
