“Nice enough hotel but no mod-cons”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

This hotel is located miles from Rayong city centre and unless you have a car or motorbike will be difficult to navigate as we found out. There is a little shop on site and the restaurant is nice and reasonably priced. The photos of the hotel are definitely enhanced and the sales pitch of sporting facilites on the beach and wifi/tv are some what inflated. You can only get wifi in the lobby and the tvs in the rooms are all Thai. This wouldn't be too bad but we had a toddler to keep amused and there wasn't much for him to do. The pool is located in the middle of the car park but is nice enough- the deep end is very deep! BUT the biggest disappointment was the beach- it was dirty and we didn't see it cleaned once. Littered with fishing tackle, rubber and it was a big reminder of the environmental damage being done to the oceans. What a shame because otherwise it would be amazing, it is a real shame on the local authorities and more so on the hotels which have the audacity to call the beach private.

Room Tip: Chosse the top floors of the mian hotel.

Our stay was overall comfortable ,
Rooms were a bit old fashioned , but comfortable .
Tv was not working properly in our room , but we did not bother coz we intended to spend our time at the beach .
Service was good.
Food and beverage was the best part as it was all made fresh ,and we could enjoy it at the absolute beachfront Restuarant in the hotel .
There was a Volleyball net for guests to enjoy .
The swimming pool was a bit run down as a few tiles had come out in some places, and there was a children's pool too . But the adults pool was incredibly deep at 2.4 meters , have to be careful if not a good swimmer . Nice overall .
No Internet, wifi , hairdryer in the rooms .
I enjoyed there because I went with my cousins as a group .
Overall nice and reasonable .

We just arrived to Thailand from Vietnam where everything is changing so fast. Here at Chalet everything is as it always has been. Old tv, 2 bottles of very good complimentary water every day, simple but tasteful rattan/bamboo furniture, great view from the balcony, laid back staff, etc.
We paid a visit to elegant Novotel (500 m by the beach) but no, we would not change. The feeling of being left alone, private, is one of the best parts of staying at Chalet. Hotels own beach is daily cleaned but the rest of it is very dirty. Hopefully it´s seasonal. Water is more than ok. If you get tired of the house kitchen or if the cook is not there, you can try the place across the road.

Room Tip: Next time I´ll ask for rooms towards sunset on the 3rd floor. Partly for the view, partly for the sh...

Peaceful place if you did not come around Students summer because this hotel had many students group joining school party and outdoor activities. There is someday noises in the evening.

This hotel provided accommination both Hotel with Sea view and Bungalow.

If you like peaceful sea, sunny day or shopping sea products or dried seafood I recommended as hotel is near Soan Son tree park and Dried Sea products and other souvenir like shell necklaces or Beach Dress style. You can drive around 5-10 minutes.

Evening around Sunset is very beautiful there and it is possible if you will go for swimming or walking or jogging around Suan Son Tree park.

Room Tip: Hotel Room with beach side
