I visited Thailand in 2004 and had a wonderful experience. My wife's family wanted a family trip so my brother in law booked a tour and we happened to stay at this hotel. As far as my experience it was just an average one. Their breakfast buffet was ok. There were big group of Chinese tourists who were rude as hell. They'd just cut in front of you and when you tell them there's a line, they'll talk back to you like they deserve to be in front of you. It was beach front but it wasn't a nice sandy beach. As I walked to the shallow pool with my son, I dipped my feet in the pool and 2 bartenders who did not even acknowledge me as I walked past them suddenly yelled and shaked their hands to tell me that wasn't allowed. I guess they thought I was washing my sandy feet maybe? I'm not sure what the reason was since I was dressed in my swim trunk to go to the pool. Dinner buffer was subpar which was disappointing since breakfast wasn't too bad. When I checked in, I saw a bellboy arguing with a Russian guest then taking the matter up to the manager and yelling at the guest infront of the manager who wasn't really doing anything.
Since 2004 when I came, seems like Thailand has turned from hospitable place where people want to help you and welcome you to a place where they put employees' job is to watch and yell at the guests like prison guards. A-one was worse than here though.
There is cheap thai massage parlor right next to the hotel, although I noticed that hotel provides cheap massage next to the pool on the day we left.
I don't think I'll return to this hotel or Thailand until they realize that tourists are what's providing their economy and provide better service attitude.
