ARRIVAL: Taxi from airport to hotel cost THB500 Thai Baht.
POSITION: Very good position with shops all around the hotel - 2 minute walk to beach. Layabouts available on the beach for rent at BHT100 per person for the day.
The open bar directly across the road has an open license until 2am but went on to past 4am and the live music was extremely loud and the only night we could sleep well was when the power went off at about 12.30am for the rest of the night.
FOOD: Breakfast was ok but you could not compare it to any of the better resort hotels.
The BIG C supermarket which is about a 20 minute walk away is a great place to
purchase everything you need including food and bottles of wine and beer at very good prices. Wine is very expensive in the restaurants.
ROOMS: Rooms on the street side (in the main building) have balconies and face directly onto the street - very noisy.
There are only 4 floors in the hotel. The hotel is divided into 2 sections and the second section is about a 2 minute walk away further up the street. There is a spa pool on the top floor of both buildings but there is only 4 lay abouts to accommodate guests. Quite a small area in both locations.
GENERAL: There is a Novotel hotel within walking distance from our hotel and we had a few very nIce meals there. There is another Novotel further away but it is on the side of a very steep hill and you need a buggy transfer to get up to reception every time.
TOURS: Shop around as there are plenty of tour operaters who will give you a great discount. Don’t miss the Cashew Nut Factory as you will really be amazed how these nuts grow and the amount of labour that goes into producing just one cashew nut.
We did enjoy our stay and had a great time as all the staff were very friendly.
