“Beach Front on Aonang Beach, Krabi”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We stayed here for 3 days and all in all enjoyed our stay. I find the current ranking of the hotel surprising and definately think that the hotel deserves a higher rank.

Pros:
1) Location, Location, Location: Beach Front property which one would not get for most other properties on Aonang beach, krabi..
2) Rooms were very spacious and well done. The bathrooms were clean and large. We had a very pleasant experience with the rooms and the sleep quality was good during our stay.

Cons:
1) No free wifi in the rooms. They provide free wifi which is restricted only to the lobby area. I find this most surprising since its a decently expensive hotel and nowadays even budget hotels are giving free wifi in rooms. SOmebody has to put their heads together on this !!!!
2) Not a big negative but would like to point out that the Front desk staff seemed very lacklustre and tired.. They seemed to be bogged down with tonnes of paperwork which they were going about doing... One should try to smile more and create a better impression on guests ....

We stayed for a week on the ground level with the balcony facing the pool. The room itself was very spacious and clean. However the TV is 30 years old model, 20" small (time to change). They do provide a mini bar, a safe and 2 beach towels which you can bring it to the beach.
A very nice mid size swimming pool.
They have a relaxing opened air restaurant over looking the beach. Nicely lighted up in the evening. Food is OK and very reasonable priced. Enjoy the dinner with sound of the wave.
The beach is just a lane away from the resort.
The resort is 150 metres away from the main road where there are shops, restaurant, tour agent, bike rental.
Main problem is the wifi......There is NO wifi in the room (have to paid for wifi). They only provide free wifi in the lobby.

I thoroughly enjoyed my week long stay at the Golden Beach Resort. I stayed in a third floor hotel room overlooking the beautiful pool, with an outlook toward the cliffs. Pool: beautiful! Resturant: beach front.
The room itself was very spacious and well appointed, including a mini bar and bottled drinking water (topped up daily). The bathroom, clean and again, spacious. Lovely balcony to relax and soak up those views.
Location: BEACH FRONT! The resort itself is down a laneway just off the main strip in Ao Nang. Close to the business, but sheltered from it all the same. Perfect.
Only gripe: NO free wifi in the rooms - only in the lobby! Unsual considering that most places around the resort had free wifi. Golden Beach charge you for wifi access in your room.

Due to our last minute booking I was unable to consider reviews of this hotel. We were met by lifeless reservation staff with little desire to make our first impression count. The hotel appeared to be bogged down on paperwork and process that made any dealings with them protracted. Despite free wifi in the lobby I paid for wifi for our room which never worked. The rooms were spacious however despite it being a non smoking room there were cigarette butts on our verandah ! Location in walking distance to main strip of restaurants.

We were 3 couples staying at Golden Beach Ao Nang in June and overall we had a great time. The hotel has a basic breakfast - some of the food is cold and not to appealing. Staff were friendly but not much English so at times hard to express our difficulty. The room was comfortable and the pool was heaven. Location is great although the beach isn't too appealing. For the reasonable price the hotel is good value. I do think the pool and room towels could do with replacing and an overall paint job would help.

Room Tip: a pool view room is the best value option

My husband and I stayed here in May 14 fo rour 26th anniversary, we had an upstairs pavillion sea view room which I can recommend. It was lovely, inside it was spacious, with a very large bed and bathroom and an incredible vaulted timber ceiling. These buildings are round and quite unusual, there is a balcony with a small table and chairs so you can sit out there and gaze out over the sea view, it was lovely to sleep each night to the sound of the waves. The beach is literally steps away across the street, which is a very quite street. The beach is ok, probably not the best beach in Thailand but you can lay on the sand and swim, the water is a bit murky but it is pleasant. The resort has a lovely pool if you prefer, large and clean. Breakfast was good with plenty of choices (all though the bees hanging around the jams and honey were a bit off putting). The only very small criticism would be the quality of the towels, they were almost threadbare, but everything else was great.
The location of this resort is fantastic, literally steps away from the main street of Oa Nang and restaurants but away from the noise. The last time we stayed in Krabi we were out at the Sofitel, which was nice, but too far out of town, The Golden Beach resort was perfect for us.

Room Tip: Choose the seaview pavillions, they are worth it.
