The good: really good location, super friendly staff, clean, great breakfast buffet, fast wifi, big spacious rooms, children free, nice pool.

The not so good: bit disappointed with the “beach”out the front of the hotel because of the pictures we saw online before we came.
You can’t swim there, it’s a small dirty reef.
You need to walk quite far to go to a beach you can swim at.
Shower head( might have just been our room) sprays all over the bathroom and has really low water pressure.

Stayed: August 2018

We have replaced the shower head.My team are thrilled to hear of your kind compliments.

The weather and sea water levels has been extremely unusual at this time of the year. There is a lot of rain and days are very cloudy (but warm). Usually the sea water level is around mid-thigh deep but this year, it has been super low.

We had a lovely time staying here. The hotel is very tranquil despite being in a very busy area at the front. The basic room we stayed in was spacious, clean with excellent air con and shower although a little dated and worn in places. There was no view from the balcony as both sides of the hotel seem to have abandoned building projects.
The pool was gorgeous with a jacuzzi area and it was just the right temperature. The beach was great with shallow warm water but the constant sellers were annoying.
Breakfast was plentiful and delicious although if you want to be in an air conditioned area you will be out of luck, it's outside with fans.
We ate in the restaurant that they set up on the beach each night and the food was excellent. You can walk up and down the beach and also find other great restaurants.
Staff were very helpful polite and cheerful as is typical in Thailand.
Overall a lovely good value stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room nearer the rear of the property/ beach

We had a wonderful trip. Elaine and Marky at reception we're super helpful. The dinner on the beach is lovely. The pool is fantastic, not busy and you never have any problems getting a sunbed or towels for the pool or beach. Breakfast has lots of variety and room was kept nice and clean.
