After reading many positive reviews about Baan Talay, we found that, despite its excellent location on the quiet south Chaweng Beach front and a really attractive pool area, there were other aspects of the hotel that prevent me from giving it more than a 3 star review. Compared with other hotels nearby, it failed to meet our expectations after an eight day stay.
The reception and beach facing areas look tired and in need of refurbishing, the room was adequate and good value, but not luxurious. The bathroom is narrow and poorly designed with inadequate shelf space for any toiletries.
The breakfasts were really poor with ill prepared hot food, and variety was lacking.
Another low point was communicating with the reception staff who were not very helpful, although housekeeping and some of the restaurant staff were always pleasant and obliging.
Would not return here, as there are much nicer hotels nearby.
