We were disappointed with this apartment yet it was very comfortable and a nice place to relax. I agree with the last review on here but im not sure any action was taken by the owners from that review as the shower/bathroom was still the same. The living areas of the apartment was clean but both bathrooms needed a good clean and scrub with bleach.
The grout in the bathroom and pool (balcony) needs attention and general up keep needed e.g only 1 outside light works, pool light broken, toaster didnt work!
As former owner of property myself in Thailand I know how difficult the up keep can be, but what I talk about here is the usual stuff, this place is very nice but needs to be 100% fully functional and spot less for the price.
As far as the views are concerned this was my worst disappointment, the photos on this site are very well taken and all look towards the right when stood on the balcony I would say 25% of the view, look ahead and you have what looks like a derelict building a hotel has been started but not finished, below then are the tin house slums of what could be the builders who are very noisy during the day
It was raining heavy on check in and it was pretty difficult managing the luggage between the 2 buildings as the previous reviewer mentioned, the girl who checked us in didnt explain anything e.g Wi Fi (that wasnt good and found it best to use 3/4G from a SIM) or how the cleaning works.
On check out I mentioned my concerns to Bruno and took on board the feedback and as a goodwill refunded the Electricity charges that was good of him, so this made us a feel a little better about the disappointment.
Like I say a little more TLC on the maintenance and make sure its very clean, with a better welcome would make this place much better value for money and make up for the lack of views that the advert describes.
Locatiion, ok if you dont mind paying for taxis, two trips a day = 1200TB You access the apartment via two lifts going from one block to the next across a set of steel steps, bit of a pain in the rain. The apartment is pretty much how it is described, however "The stunning Sea-views" are now reduced by about a third as the "under Construction" tower block almost directly in front chops out the view of Patong and a fair piece of the bay?
The master bedroom has a huge roomy wardrobe and dressing area, however the second bedroom has no wardrobe at all, ok if you dont mind another guest wandering in to get something from your robe. The shower fitting and toilet seat were faulty in the en suite bathroom, as i was alone i used the second bathroom. The glass shower doors are too heavy for the hinges and scrape on the tiled floor.
What i did not like was the total lack of anything to welcome a guest, after being on the road for over 12 hours i wanted a nice cup of coffee and a hot shower.
The are NO coffee teabags sugar etc, nor is there even 1 paltry bar of soap in the bathrooms, in effect bring your own. The outside balcony looks great in the photos, however with no umbrella in the small table if the sun is out you get fried, if it rains you get wet, talking about wet, nowhere could i find an umbrella so had to get wet several times. While in the negative, make sure you personally take the meter reading, what they charged me for the power was three times what i use at home here in Perth?
There was no maid service so keep it clean.
Positives, not many except in itself it is a nice apartment, sort out the other few bits and pieces to make it welcoming. It is over priced for what you get.
