2nd week of our trip to Thailand we decided to stay in the Ocean Breeze resort and well its alright. But just alright. Nothing to rave about to be honest and at 4000 Baht per night (nearly £90) for a standard you could do a lot better for your cash. But due to availability (or lack of) in other resorts we chose Ocean Breeze.
Location wise its perfect, just on the beach but then again most places in Khao Lak are on the beach.
Staff wise - this is where this resort fails. The staff seem to be unmotivated and not really connected with the job at hand. Requests met with a not so happy face and a dragging of the feet. Might be a management issue I don’t know but something should change here because it brings the resort down.
Breakfast was ok though fruitflies all over the place doesnt make for appetizing food.... generally an uninspiring breakfast. Also people smoking in the open air restaurant made it even less appealing since we had our 7 month baby with us.
We learned that this place is only 2 years since refurbishment (or opening maybe) and whilst the rooms are fine the resort is already beginning to look tired so a spruce up is in order.
If you like to hang out with Germans then this is the place for you. Mainly a German orientated resort and I think the manager is German also. There was also an unhelpful German guy sitting behind the dive/tour desk all day every day who was of no help at all when we asked about dive tours. In fact, he made me not want to book with him as his short, uninformative, didnt care attitude put me off. So we went elsewhere and gave our money to someone else. Just as we will do next time we come to Khao Lak with regards to accommodation.
We would give this place a 4.5 out of 10 and are unlikely to return to this resort unless I hear that they have changed mangement and actually motivated their staff.
