We arrived at Al's resort at 12pm (The check in time stated on Agoda), only to find out the check in time was actually 2pm. The lady at the front desk was quite rude in my opinion although the doorman and rest of the staff were quite polite. We arrived at 2pm only to find that in fact there is NO FREE WIFI IN THE ROOMS. It is falsely advertised, the free wifi is only in the lobby. We had to purchase internet cards for 100baht to use the internet in our rooms which disconnected quite often.

The room itself: It was clean although quite dark. We got the deluxe room on special in Agoda so the price was very good but it would not be worth full price in my opinion. There was a gap between the door and the door frame on the top, enough for mosquitos to get in. Also no adapter provided and overall the front desk was not that helpful whenever we called. There were some stains on my pillow also but as we were only staying a night I didnt bother to complain.

Location: It is in a very good location, quite central to most things and food outlets.

Overall: I would not return again. I think there are much better hotels in the area for the price you are paying with extremely helpful staff willing to make your stay enjoyable. I didnt feel the staff even cared about whether we were satisfied with their services or not at Al's Resort.

We appreciate this comment as the concern put together was fairly been addressed .

We apologize if ever the interpretation of our staff unhelpful hand was been felt as a rude one as conferring with the said front office staff she was explaining the accessibility of the free WIFI is strong at the lobby and has a weak signal in room but an alternative access point with a cost
can be use in room.

We hope that we can patch up about this unfavorable observation if ever a chance could be given for spending your holiday with us.

We would like to impart also that we take a measure that our front office staff were been given a precaution to extend a helping hand to all our staying guest whatever concern it would be.

Al’s Resort is definitely one of the nicer & better value hotels with Clean Bathrooms and Comfortable beds on Chaweng Beach, which is situated 3 minutes walk away from the busy streets & Bars/Pubs.

Check in was fast & simple; with smiles from the ever friendly staffs, who also provided free map of the area upon arrival.

The other bonus is the cheap reasonable beers and cocktails are available by the hotel’s poolside, close by the beach to look at the planes flying in!

I would definitely stay here again.

The hotel was overall average. The rooms were average, the bathroom was not so good. However the check in check out was quick, and the staff at reception was very supportive at organizing trips and renting motor bike. The best part is the location you get at a very affordable price. the hotel's beach is on one of the better and quieter spots on chaweng beach. the roadside is filled with great restaurants. restaurants/supermarket/travel operators/ rentals all close by

The hotel has seen its better days, need some color, new chairs and the finnish is missing.The room we had was big, bad bed and too hard and big pillows. Too few chairs by the pool and beach for all the hotel guests.
Do you want to be in the center of everything it is good. Breakfast buffe, ok. Staff was friendly, except for the reception. The best thing was the bikram center next door, wonderful place and instructor.

We appreciate it very much for this feedback especially the observation of a friendly hotel staff with the exception of the reception. We make a caution already to all our reception staff to project a consistent assistance friendly attitude to all our visiting guest.

We welcome you again to visit our place in which we want to overcome and show the improvement we had in terms of customer service.

Thank you for imparting your holiday an sharing your good observation.

Very clean. Sparkling pools. Very friendly staff. Incredible value for money. Rooms and facilities are basic but sparkling clean. At the price, highly recommended. Don't expect 5 star facilities at 2 star prices though. But you can expect 5 star service from the 5 star staff!! And the location is fantastic.

This hotel has really the perfect location on Chaweng. Just away from the noisy nightclubs, but still 2 minutes to walk to them. On the beach with a swimming just behind the beach. The price was very nice, and the room we had was big. With seaview. Nice to wake up to in the morning. But it was only two old chairs on the balcony. They could done better with a nice balcony like that.
