5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
2 days stay for some quiet time
Lovely place to stay very clean and peaceful. The lobby area is quite big with in/outdoor space to enjoy the breeze. They also serve food which I found tasty and the main lady always makes sure she cooks for you breakfast as well. And she remembers you by your name straight away. I stayed in the all female 4 bed, room number3 bed number 3. Large safe box under bed and tv in the room to share. Wat Chalong temple is 5 minutes walk but if you want to go somewhere else you need a bike for sure. It's a long walk to the dolphin show or the zoo.

1/5 Terrible

Queda lejos de cualquier playa muy poca accesibilidad en fotos se ve piscina hermosa la cual queda alejada del lugar y sucia, no hay tuk tuk locomoción buena y para comer muy mal ubicado para movilizarse es demasiado caro son 45 minutos a puket y a kata 25 minutos en auto el cual te cobra sobre 500 bath.
