The hotel has interesting design and located right on the beach. Those are the only 2 stars I would give them. Construction next door (not their fault) makes me more susceptible to other things, such as very rundown, neglected feeling of the property. The reason I'm still here is that the room hasn't been cleaned yet, so I can't even take shower to get out of here. No to the basics:
When we arrived, relatively late in the evening, we were the only guests checking in, yet there was nobody upfront to get our luggage. At the reception they assumed that we had our "voucher", so we had to wait for them to find our reservation. To be fair, checking in didn't take that long and when employees arrived they were all friendly and nice. Although nobody at the property speaks English (which is fine, since all the guests here speak Russian) none of them also speaks Russian or Spanish either. If you still planning to come here lear how to speak Thai. What else? The room smells like mold. Service is slow and if you ask for a towel or a blanket they will not simply bring it and leave it in the room - they want you to be there to get a tip. There is no towel service or food service on the beach. The beach is dirty: foam, cigarette butts, plastic bags in the water, etc. Overall, this could've been a fantastic property if it was managed properly.
