“dissapointing”
Reviewed 12 January 2009

My family of four stayed in one of the motel type rooms above the restaurant. They would not let us into our room until we paid the balance of our bill. So we had to walk to an ATM and get more cash before we could settle in. There was mouse dropping on the pillows. Several things in the bathroom were not working. There was not one towel rack and the walls were water-stained plywood. The double beds had a bottom sheet and a single comforter. This didn't work well if there are two people in the bed. We asked for another comforter for each bed, but they didn't have any, so they gave us a sheet for each bed which worked ok.
The walls are very thin, so three nights we went to sleep to the sound of someone wretching in the next room. Lovely!
All of this would have not been so bad if we were paying $20 or $30 a night, but we paid nearly $70 a night. Our sheets were stained as well, and the towels were stained and shredded!
Stay Away!!
The only good thing about this place is the location - near both Sairee and Mae Head town/beaches.

Good location - v.quiet beach but only 10 minutes walk to busier port. Accommodation not good value for money compared to other places we had stayed in Thailand. Spacious room with balcony BUT not impressed with cleanliness. Sheets and towels heavily stained so much so that I slept under my own towel as was worried about the germs lurking!

Reviewed 14 September 2007

The photos of this resort on the internet are very enticing, the reality is very different. The owners live in Bangkok and are developing new accommodation units, but not maintaining the existing units. There is 3 options available, Hotel view, Paradise view and Sea view. We chose the Sea view units with air conditioning, and the views were fantastic, however the rooms were obviously built many years ago and everything was very worn and tired, linen was grey and torn, furniture and fixtures needed replacing, and the bed and pillows were so hard it was llike sleeping on wood. The outdoor plastic furniture was broken, and the showers are cold water only, plus they are wet showers with very poor drainage, so the bathroom floor is continually wet.
However the staff were fantastic, helpful and friendly, good internet access and a fully stocked shop, plus all travel and diving/snorkelling can be booked on site.

  • Liked — The fantastic ocean view
