“Unfriendly staff, too many sex tourists”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

We expected more after we had seen the reviews here. Room was ok, crowd wasn´t .. and on the last evening we had a bad experience with a girl at the reception, she accused us of having had an accident with the motorbike we rented - not true at all...

We felt in this hotel like at home. Room is very nice and clean, aircon. Service cleaning room everyday. Very nice staff, nice pool, free computer place with internet, private safe, good food. To far away from beach! On the next side of street is shop and small restaurant where is brilliant food, very cheap! You can rent a bike in reception for good price-you need bike in this hotel-it is far away(maybe about 2km) from bigger town, bakery, pharmacy etc. Very, very nice hotel!

Stayed for one night which was enough this time. The staff was helpful, location is good and you can change money there. Pool looked nice. I did have bit bad luck with my room due it had small bugs all over the bed and it smelled damp and mould. I ended up sleeping in my friends double bed that night, even his room was next door, he did not have any of my room's issues. I said about this to staff but they ignored the whole thing. Other thing which bothered little was wasted, loud customers with their thai girlfriends but this you cannot blame the hotel itself. I heard they have own partner scuba diving school which is nice.

Room Tip: Check and smell the room carefully before.

Just cant find anything wrong at all w/ this resort! Great value for the money. Marco, the resort manager, was friendly & accomodating. The rooms are gorgeous. The pool is big. The complex was very lush. The resort is located just off the main road w/ many restaurants & mini marts within walking distance. Planning on coming back many times 2 this one for sure!

Booking late for a stay over Christmas and New Year, we got to pay 1600 bath for a double. The room was OK with a balcony and chairs outside the front door overlooking the pool.
The AC was silent and worked perfectly.
The bathroom was small but OK. The pool big enough for diving and swimming. The bed was hard. Very hard. Breakfast was included and you got a ticket for each day where you had to note what you would like for breakfast. They had American breakfast (2 slices of toast, marmelade, butter, 2 fried eggs, one piece of ham, one slice off bacon, 2 small sausages, 4 slices of cucumber and 2 slices of tomato), porridge, pancake (with one pack of jam) or fried rice. The restaurant also served lunch, although quite expensive for rather plain dishes and they sold drinks all the time.
They also rented out scooters, 125cc, for 200 baht/day. I got a really nice machine, although the speedometer was broke.
The main disadvantage was that it took about 10 minutes to walk to the beach. Klong Prao beach was quite nice, even if I probably should recommend White Sand Beach instead.
But, you always had the sauna at the hotel if you got tired of the beach.

Room Tip: The top floor rooms are smaller but have balconies and better view.
