“Awful food, awful service, looks like a building in North Korea.”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Zero Thai feel. We had a deluxe room upstairs. Initially looked OK but the bed sheet had a hole in it, the bathroom had a bad drainage Bali/Patong smell and the shower was impossible to regulate. No shampoo provided. Two bottles of water complimentary.

Ate dinner there - well, we were meant to. It was preordered and came to us 4 people cling film wrapped from the fridge. Not heated, stone cold. No lighting at our table so we couldnt actually see what we were eating. Two of the four chairs had rotten armrests that fell off as we sat there. The whole place is run down, the grounds need attention.

Hotel is set on a beautiful beach, but that is all it has going for it. Last night they had a party from Phuket, at least 25, who also had a woeful singer. So we couldnt speak to each other either over the din while the shambles that was dinner unfolded.

Go somewhere else, especially if you want to eat.

Disgusting. Not what I expected. very far from anywhere, services in hotel like restaurants very bad, food poor, no entrainment and not even Wi fI in the rooms. had to be outside all the time and specially the reception staff was no useful . they say only ¨sorry¨ but no help, no service. And all information I asked was wrong (about tours).

Very nice getaway if you want some privacy on the beach; we had a superior room without a private pool, which was spacious and clean. Value for money is very good and breakfast buffet is nice. the beach is perfect, far from crowded with sunbeds and umbrellas!

The Kib is a lovely place. Not too busy, close to the beach, We stay at the Villa pool access for 7 nights 8 day. It's nice pool and good facilities. The kids love this place and the pool were perfect for them. We would definitely recommend massage at the hotel very good and reasonably priced and the staff was fantastic.

Room Tip: Villa Pool Access are great for easy access to pool and beach.

This resort was chosen as we had never been to this area of Thailand. Staff couldn't be anymore helpful. We had a very relaxing and quiet time at this resort. Not sorry we stayed there at all. Dinner menu was made at our request. Bring your own snack food from the main land as shop at pier limited on supplies

Hotel room is wonderful, hotel staffs are fantastic, helpful & friendly.
Location is great, nice beach , clean lovely pool (only stay in pool access), public swimming pool is very small, beach front villa is a bit far away from beach side and villa swimming pool is too small.
Room is perfect, but need to improve all aminities, towels and cleaning in the room. May be period which i stay is start of low season and hotel also nearly close for a couple of month for maintenance, make all room not tidy & clean enough.
Food test is good but very hot in the restaurant both for dinner & breakfast. Breakfast is a bit terrible, quality of food is very low.
In Koh Kor Khao is still up country with no light & sound, very quiet, hot and nothing to do around the island. Best to use hotel facilities and enjoy sunset where you stay.

Room Tip: Recommend of pool access which you can enjoy a big swimming pool (same in the picture) by just step...
