    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    When we first arrived they had no record of our reservation through Expedia or that we had already paid. If you’d like to go, book directly with the property- don’t do it through Expedia. They were able to accommodate us anyways with their last available room. Our room was very beautiful. It was in the middle of a garden, up on the 2nd floor. We had a patio with a view of the ocean. The bathroom is an outdoor bathroom off the side of our room. Still very private, but we’d never had that before so it was interesting. TV didn’t work, but we couldn’t have cared less about that. They had Wi-Fi, the room was comfortable enough. It’s got open-air bug screens around the ceiling of the room, so you can always hear the ocean waves and the cars on the street nearby. Theres a big fan & AC still, so it’s a comfortable temperature in the room. There isn’t any restaurant or food offerings at the hotel, but there are restaurants within a 2 minute walk up and down the beach from the hotel. At night it’s very dark. There’s no lights around the property or the street outside and we used our phones lighting up the street when we walked to dinner. The beach had garbage around. We didn’t try any of the spa services or the gym, so I can’t comment on those. In summary, I would say that we enjoyed our stay and the staff was really lovely at accommodating us. It is definitely a more unique hotel stay in my experience, so if you want a full-service hotel this may not be for you.

    Paradise in paradise

    The staff here are awsome, and so friendly. Jane was really helpful and spoke the best English of any Thai we have met. If you want a fairly secluded resort with a quite beach don't pass this up. I would like to thank all the staff here for allowing us to celebrate songkran with them.

    Lovely hotel AMAZING staff

    One of the best hotels we stayed at on our trip to Thailand! THe staff is simply amazing, they were extremely helpful and did not know what else to do to make us happy. Our flight didn't leave until late at night and even after we checked out they let us stay around and made sure we were comfy enough. The hotel room was extremely clean and beautiful. The hotel is well located for a relaxing trip but if you want to go in search of action it is 15 minutes away from the Fisherman's village. The only downside are the mosquitoes as they have a lot of stagnant water. I absolutely loved this hotel and would come back again!

    4/5 Good

    Just easy

    I was there to dive, easy to get to site of departure, easy to get scooter. On the beach and convenient.

    Pros: Easy for me to access scuba diving departure, great view, lovely staff

    Cons: It's simple and quaint, it's no trying to be salubrious. Nothing

    Location: Close to diving, scooter acess and not too close to airport. Food is close by if you are on a scooter

    Huono hinta-laatusuhde

    Ei rahoille vastinetta. Vaatimaton mukavuustaso hintaan verrattuna. Liian kova ilmastointi, jota ei saanut säädettyä. Hyttysiä tavallista enemmän pihassa olevien lammikoiden takia.
