We went to Salad Buri Resort in February 2013.

The hotel is set within a very nice bay with bungalows looking down from the slopes.

The resort is nice however has a feel of slowly being run down with water features no longer working, broken deck chairs and ripped matts etc.

The bungalows are nice and large and kept very clean by the staff. However once again they are slowly getting run down with walls and furniture being a bit run down and significant amounts of mould in the bathroom due largely to having no ventilation system.

The restaurant serves very good Thai food, however the European options such as the pizza which is probably the worst pizza I've ever had need some effort put into them.

The staff as a whole were very nice however surprisingly few who spoke English which is surprising considering the fact pretty much all the guests did. We had a specific incident whereby we called the front desk after 10.30pm to find out that the night receptionist spoke no English which was quite disconcerting if something was seriously wrong.

Overall we had a very nice time at the resort however if I had paid the full price rather than the discounted price we got online I would have been very dissapointed.

The resort itself is well situated with a great beach and pool complex. The lack of language beyond Thai of the staff means even ordering lunch becomes a chore. Only book if you're happy with a lucky dip when it comes to service and a slow, lazy staff to serve you. Oh, and the 'massage' here is an application of oil at best. NOT a spa.

Ok. Let’s get the moans out of the way. I’m lazy – therefore wasn’t too impressed by my mountain top room (but brilliant views) – so asked to be moved to a lower level room and closer to friends – this they did the next day. Although my room was still a “healthy” walk up the hill! Also when I got to my first (mountain top ) room the battery on the safe was on its way out – phoned down to reception who sent someone up – who was not too happy – I explained in my best Thai that it was better that he changed it now (at 3pm) rather than 2am in the morning. Anyway it was sorted out – think they had to get another battery from a sister hotel. On the plus side. The staff seemed fine to me. Yes, they are young, but they are really trying and this could be why seemed nervous – remember they are having to cope with a load of languages and I think they did really well. They laughed at my bad Thai pronunciations and seemed happy to chat to us. They came round to check if you wanted more drinks, when we were lazing round the pool. If you don’t like their food (which I did) there are plenty of places nearby to eat in (Cookies is good as is Salad Hut) + they have a cab/taxi/truck which goes to Thong Sala (think it was 150-200 bht each) so you can buy yourself goodies.

We arrived on Thong Sala pier to find a pick up from the hotel even though we had not requested, it cost 150 baht each which we did not mind paying.

Check in was quick and we got shown to our room by buggy even though it wasn't as far up the hill as some bungalows so this wasn't an issue for us.

Our room was small, not much room to store bags but we made space. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was v comfy. The bathroom was huge with an amazing power shower, loved it!

Breakfast is impressive with a good choice but lunch not great. Based on this we decided to give it a skip for dinner and ended up going to Salad Hut instead, yum food and lovely staff.

The pool is gorgeous with lots of sun loungers around.

We have a great relaxing time here and would recommend this hotel to friends to people who wish for a quiet beachside break!

Very good value for money. Very calm and peaceful. The staff is very polite and easy going. Perfect for families with young kids. Its really a piece of paradise. The only problem is if you get a room on the top of the hill, you will get tired going up and down. but for that they have a couple of golf cars.
