As the title of this review states, this hotel did not have a safe in the room, did not provide us with clean bath towels (or clean our room at all, for that matter), runs out of pool towels half way through the day (which leaves you in a bit of a bind considering they ask you not to use bath towels at the pool or beach), and did not have any type of beach chairs. There are 15 (I counted) wooden sun-loungers situated around the pool but they are always taken. The bathrooms are a bit awkward as the "shower" is simply hanging off a wall between the sink and the toilet.
Although it is true that the hotel has a nice view, and the staff are nice enough, this hotel certainly is not worth $65 Canadian/night. The only real positives about this hotel are that it offers free wi-fi in the lobby, and it has a nice ocean view. However, the nice view comes with a downside... The hotel is situated on a hill-side and as such you must pull your luggage along very steep hills to get to/from the main road.
You should also be warned that room request types are obviously not a guarantee at this hotel... We had requested 2 single beds and instead ended up with 1 king (not an ideal situation when you're traveling with your dad). I asked if there was a cot available which the hotel agreed to supply free of charge.
Overall this hotel was a disappointment. By no means did I go in with high expectations. I knew that the rooms would not be that nice for 65 dollars a night. But the issue was not the room. The issues were the lack of beach chairs, lack of clean towels, and lack of safe in the room. This hotel is not worth $65/night.
I recommend staying around the corner at haad Yao beach. The water/beach there is much nicer than the beach at haad son, and there appeared to be many hotels to choose from. I will not be returning to haad son and I do not recommend staying there. Of all of the hotels I stayed in throughout Asia, this one was my least favourite.
