This was my 3rd or 4th stay at this hotel. It has always been a great value and remains so however the hotel condition is slipping. New management is taking over the hotel later this year and I suspect that many of the material improvements required have been held off until then.
1. Bungalows: Duplexes, Cement / Block construction with small porches on front and toilet located at rear outside with I love because of their simplicity. The Air Conditioning works well. The windows are wood framed and some are starting to fall off hinges and latches are sometimes not locking well so check them carefully. The bungalows face a large open grass space with coconut trees and landscaping and paths, very nice. Water was the hotel is filtered, I haven't experienced any problems with it but still resort to using bottled water for drinking and brushing.
2. Safe: none in room, believe there are lock boxes in office.
3. Pool: nice but no lounge chairs, just some old crappy plastic chairs. Pool was a bit cloudy this last visit, not sure if there is a chemical issue but wasn't green so I swam. There is an area serviced by a jet pump but this was not working on my recent visit.
4. Beach: short walk, close enough that the wifi still works there from the hotel. The Korner Bar run by a Thai man named New sells beer (70-80 baht) and liquor. Walk past the Marina resort next door along the beach and there is a restaurant that I eat at which is good.
5. Breakfast: Simple, you can order an omelet.
6. Staff: Always friendly and the owners are very nice people but soon will be having new management run the hotel so they can focus on their restaurant and raising new baby.
7. Tips: Don't expect much except a great place to sleep for value and be patient because I believe later this year things will turn around for the better.
