We stayed here for four nights in January. We had the "deluxe" beachfront room. We weren't here to dive with them, I chose it for the beach front view and the price. The view is fantastic, you are right of the beach. Sunsets would have been magnificent if only the sky cooperated. The music from downstairs drove us nuts, in all fairness, it's not their bar, it's another outfit, The Tank. Techno music blaring until 2:19 am is horrible. Same "song" on endless loop, with a joke of a laser show on the rock outside. But that's not Good Times fault. What is their responsibility is the horrible bathrooms and spotty customer service. If you book here, IMMEDIATELY go to the 7-11 and buy a quart of bleach. Pour half down the sink drain, and half down the shower. Repeat every 2 days. It helps, but not much. The plumbing leaks, and there's no excuse for not fixing that today. Doesn't need to wait for a rehab. The bed was rock hard, you either like it or don't. Didn't bother me, drove the wife nuts. I do have a real problem with being asked for a 1000 BHT deposit for a second room key. It's not an unusual request. Quite normal, actually. Don't make excuses like "we only have 2 keys, if you lose it I have to replace the lock." Really Nicki? Maybe you could ask the locksmith who's advertisement is hanging at the bottom of the stairs to make a third key. As if there aren't already more. And the lock itself is a cheap passage lock like I'd put on a bedroom in my house. How about a deadbolt. I was traveling with $7000USD worth of camera equipment, and didn't feel too good about the security. The food was good, most of the staff very friendly. Fix up the rooms, don't make excuses, and you've got a pretty good place here.
