We booked a beach villa for 10 nights with my wife. First Night we stayed at villa 28- but could not sleep all night because of the bad smell of toilet, also the voice of the air-con!! Morning i talked to management, they changed our villa to oher side, villa : 14, it was better, but all same! shower with electricity water heater! toilet is also like a 3 star hotel- no ventilation, shover gel, shampoo like dish-soap! You pay like 5 star, but service and room quality is only 3 star!
Prices included with breakfast, but there are only 3 type breaksfast, what you can choose, Thai, European and American, after 3 days, you can be bored, what you should eat!!! The prices is 3-5 times expensive than town restaurants, Evening, if you want to eat hotel, you have to pay around 1000-1500 Baht for a dinner for a person, and that time there was a French Chef, only French Meals, or you should go to town, but it is not easy, you should find a taxi, or rent a bike!! If you are not a good moto-bike driver, it can be risky, we had a small accident :( In town, there are local restaurant, open air food seller, what you can choose, yes maybe not very hygenic, but tasty.
Hotel is nice, slient, place, you can relax, but not ideal sea for swim, only knee level, maybe it can be good family with children. you can relax at your villa and your private pool, but be careful, i had an ear infection from the private pool, although they disinfect the private pool regularly.
Also be careful, the hotel management charge 3% extra, if you wish to pay with credit card. it was a bag surprise for us.
Looks like paradise, but after 1 night, you woke up from dream
