Fanari courtyard hotel room
Posted Nov 10, 2016 on Hotels
Unknowingly booked for courtyard bungalow across from main hotel. On arrival the room stank of damp so much so we only spent 10minutes in the room before I had to get outside for fresh air. We asked at reception to be moved and they showed us another bungalow that smelt just as bad. We ended up paying 400thb extra per night to stay in a poolside room which still smelt like damp but was much, much better and cleaner. The beach is lovely and the surrounding area really is friendly with lots of good restaurants. We had a couple of meals at Thai Life down the road which was really great, try out their schnitzel. We can recommend Pinocchio's which is an Italian, slightly more expensive but worth the money and they did a great job catering to our requirements. There is a great bar run by an English hippie on the main road called Mars Bar (onto main Street and turn right, look for the yellow smiley face sign) he is a super nice guy and does proper English grub and PG tips tea if you're missing a good cuppa! All in all, really enjoyed our stay and the room was good but ended up expensive.
