The hotel has a nice position right next to the beach and the whole place is pretty good-looking. But looks can be deceiving as we all know. Nothing seems to work at this place. The Internet is down about 90% of the time, the showers sprinkle water in all directions and floor boards are loose here and there causing people to step on nails with their bare feet around the pool. Outside our so-called "villa" (really an apartment) there is a family staying in a house - it may be management or the hotel's owner. Their house is a mess with pots, pans and trash ouside the house and it smells of something like a combination of rotten fruit and manure outside our door.
But the biggest problem with this place is the service from reception. It is non-existant. Housekeeping comes seemingly when they feel like it. They barely manage to give a beach towel. They don't smile and seem annoyed by the fact that their hotel has guests that may occasionally ask for something. Koh Tao has much nicer alternatives.
