Just got home from fantastic holiday in Ao Nang and re-reading reviews about this hotel. More interesting now I've stayed at Somkiet Buri myself.
There were a few niggly things about the accommodation and I wasn't going to bother writing a review until I encountered the Receptionist being incredibly rude to my husband, who asked for assistance to book a taxi to the airport. I don't know if she was annoyed because we didn't use the van taxi they offer at 700 Baht or if she just enjoys being rude to customers! Hard to say.
We were in room 1011 and had a good view and easy access to the pool, which is lovely. The jungle surroundings and quietness of this hotel made it a nice place to stay. The niggles were the drain in the bath blocked, the toilet didn't flush properly, the basin plug didn't work and only way to empty was pulling out plug to drain (can't remove plug altogether as permanent fixture). The shower holder had obviously broken off at some stage. When replacing it the holder has been put at a lower level making it too low for even people of average height. I agree with an earlier review about inadequate lighting for the room too.
The breakfast had nice food on offer, however the hygiene left a bit to be desired. Most of the food was left uncovered so had flies crawling on it and also birds were pecking at the pastries and bread (the catering staff saw this but didn't do anything about it).
It's great to know this place is for sale. I will check out reviews this time next year - as someone else said this would be a wonderful place in different hands and we love Ao Nang so plan to return.
