I booked this hotel through the internet and wanted to have a quiet day at the beach with my two children.
The hotel is not very close to any entertainment and if you look for nights out this is not the place to stay.
As the name says this is next to cliffs and the beach is separated from the main beach by rocks and private properties.
We got an upgrade on arrival and I was pleasantly surprised when entering the room. The rooms are very well maintained and reminded me of stays in Hyatt or Marriott in Hua Hin.
We went for lunch into the cliff side restaurant which was empty. We received a russian menu and when I mentioned that I do not speak russian they gave me a western menu. No thai food.
The service though was excellent and the food delicious as well.
The hotel area is not very special. The lobby area looks nice and is warmly decorated. The pool area with apartments (around 9 floors I would say) is average.
We went to the beach and from the beach side the hotel needs renewal. The stairs are under maintenance and the beach is dirty to say the least. Next to the hotel is a big construction site but hey: nothing they can change about this. And it is not noisy.
I would not really return to this but also would not say that the stay was unpleasant. Just not exactly what we were looking for.
