Reviewed 10 August 2012

Hotel is close enough to the beach but overall the worst place i stayed in thailand.
1- Restaurant staff very rude and slow to bother even taking ur order. the lads usually are walkin round topless and very hesitant to do any work. breakfast very poor with little choice and trying to explain what eggs you wanted got harder every day.
Breakfast starts at 9 which is late if you plan to be up earlier it prob wont suit.

You could be talking an hour to actually manage to order and get your breakfast.With constant mix ups. for example they first pour out you juice and coffee on the bar and then place order in kitchen(10 to 15 minutes), Your coffee is left on bar till ur breakfast is ready(20 to 40 minutes later)Which by then is cold and very low quaility coffee. when i asked for another i was told it would cost 60bht extra even though we were paying 2200bht a night!

2- Only a handfull of rooms have tv and proper showers and they are even more expensive, it is about the same price as a 4 or 5 star resort on ko samui.Bed like a plank of wood and shower like some thing you would find on a beach.

3- Pool filthy, the worst ive every seen, floating with algae and dead skin from from sun burnt travellers.

4-Reception staff also very unhelpfull once you payed for your stay their just not interested. We left a night earlier then booked and they refused to refund the night even though a couple in reception said they would take the room as the hotel was full.

5- Very loud at night.But if ya want to stay somewhere without any security or night staff and u can wander round all night drinking , shouting and singing this is ur spot if you want any more then three hours sleep there is fantastic options very close that cost less!

Room Tip: cheap rooms extremly basic for price. no safty box,telly or good shower.Staff not interested.

Reception staff were amazing to deal with. Very polite and extra helpful and kind, definitely look out for their guests. Food in restaurant was o.k. Unlike almost everywhere we ate in Thailand, the waiting staff were very lazy, slow to bother with serving, not very friendly either. Room was spacious, great aircon. Doors to room were locked using just a padlock! Beds were comfotable, as were pillows. Unfortunately there was a lot of building/ renovation when we were here but this has to happen at some stage. The pool was FILTHY!!!!!!!!!!!! the water was very foggy. Pool area looked nice though! Only minutes walk from the beach, in the heart of the action but not noisy at night. Despite everything I'd still recommend it though!

I stayed here for 6 nights in the build up to and for the Full Moon in July 2011. There were 12 of us travelling so we got 4 rooms of 3. It was pretty expensive, around €30 a night, even given the fact that accomodation is obviously higher during Full Moon period.

The location literally can't get any better, 60 second walk to the beach and on the main sort of road on the island, it has a nice pool as well to chill in and you can stick on your own iPod into the speakers.

The staff were nice enough, didn't really deal with them much, they do your laundry as well like most places so that can also be handy. No problem bringing other people back to the rooms as well ;). Not much actually happening in the resort compared to some others on the island, like pool parties or anything like that, I prefered it that way to be honest, you can go to other places for pool parties or foam parties if you're not just going to the beach, then just use Delight to sleep and chill in during the day.

All in all probably worth the expense.

2 mins from beach but far away enough to not hear thumping music all night and get a decent sleep.
Shops and restaurants all around the vicinity.
Room was basic with no TV. Bed was quiet firm. Towels included.
Breakfast was OK.
Pool didn't look clean.
Staff not very friendly.
Great place to stay if you plan to party!!!

I stayed at Delight over a full moon party and the location of the resort is could not be better. You can walk straight out of the restaurant 200 mts down the alley way in front of you and you are on the beach. being one street back from the beach you are far enough away to get a decent sleep.

There is a lot of safety here with lockers provided in the reception area, as well as padlocks for the rooms.

The rooms are ok but nothing special for the price. The beds are very firm.

Overall though a great hotel if you are looking to be out at the fullmoon party and want somewhere close by to crash. Everything is close by, and its very affordable. Would stay here again for sure.

I have stayed here 3 times now. Nice rooms and friendly staff.
Prices are higher around FMP but so is everywhere else.
No TV- not an issue for us but some rooms do have.
Free wifi- not fast enough for skype but good for email
its very close to the FMP but still quiet

Room Tip: get a room away from the pool- it can be noisy

We stayed at Delight over the period of the fullmoon party and the location of the resort is fantastic. You can walk straight out and perhaps 200 mts down the alley way in front of you and you are on the beach. However, you are far enough was to get a decent sleep if that is what you want to do.

To get to the rooms you must walk through the restaurant which at first was frustrating, but then became good to know that we wouldn't be getting randoms strolling through our hotel.

There is a lot of safety here with lockers provided in the reception area, as well as padlocks for the rooms.

The rooms are quite cosy, and for three of us we had a bit of a laugh when we saw three single beds basically right next to each other taking up the whole room, privacy was definitely one thing we weren't getting. The bathroom is the same, quite small with no actual shower, just the shower head on the wall which means the whole bathroom gets saturated when you have a shower.

The food was decent. Breakfast was not the best but lunch and dinner were good. The location is simply fantastic and the staff were very friendly. It was a lovely pool too, however they could be a little more lenient on the open and closing times.

Overall though a great hotel if you are looking to be out at the fullmoon party and want somewhere close by to crash. Everything is close by, and its very affordable. Would stay here again for sure.
