Nice view on the beach but that's about it
Posted Nov 6, 2016
Booked 3 nights at room 621 (Grand Deluxe Jacuzzi Seaview), overall I would consider this a 3 star hotel at best. Let me start with the pros, the view in the back was amazing. Now let's go with the cons, the jacuzzi in the back probably can fit a person under 5 feet tall so I never even bothered using it, the view was also obstructed by trees and I was on the highest floor. Room smelled horrible the moment we stepped in and never went away. The TV was on the side and you won't be able to watch it from your bed. The bed comfort was probably a 1/10, every time you would get on the bed with your knees, your knees would hit hard wood. The shower was fine, hot water was fine, air conditioning was strong. The hotel is next to 3 other resorts and 20 minutes away from other villages, so you can only eat in the resort. We had one meal at the resort, 1 appetizer, 2 entrees, a beer, and a dessert for 1350 baht. The food was actually above average, 8/10 but it was just over priced. You can eat the same entrees in local restaurants in Ao-Nang for about 550-600 baht. Free breakfast was provided with booking that ended at 10:30am, but the food was poor for a 4.5 star hotel. We stayed at another 4.5 star hotel in Phuket prior and the food selection was 3x as much. Also breakfast food would run out and no one would refill the food. Taking a cab out to Ao-Nang was 600 baht one way, there is also another village closer for 300 baht one way, but I would recommended Ao-Nang instead.
