Pros: * Leaving (1 hour after getting there) Cons: * Noisy (busy street noise even from 'pool view' rooms - flimsy interior cardboard door used as an external door) * Smelly (aircon smelt of urine and rattled) * Faulty (shower bracket, smashed holes in bench-tops, feces in toilet) * Soulless * extremely uncomfortable bed (looked as though it was found...

We were supposed to stay 1 week, but we already checked out after 3 nights. Nothing is good about this hotel, the staff is not service minded, everything takes time, the breakfast is a joke, we always went to the hotel beside for breakfast. Its to expensive for what you get. I would not recomend this hotel to any one... More

This is another very average hotel that gets away with a lot of issues because of the Thai staff. The reception team are always smiling and eager to help, although they can't begin to fix the problems this hotel has. Overall the room was large, nice balcony, and bed was comfortable. This hotel is clearly popular with Chinese travellers which... More

We stayed here for 5 days and the hotel is good and clean, we had one of the mountain facing rooms as they were half the price of the pool facing ones, they don't get any sun during the day but there are plenty of loungers around the pool. The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for you especially... More

Good location, very helpful, friendly staff. We were pleased with this hotel, with their smiling staff and the good location. Breakfast was fine and the food in the hotel restaurant is tasty for a reasonable price. Pick the seaside room, very quiet and lovely view.

We stayed here for a total of 6 days and it was a very pleasant stay. Upon arrival they look after you straight away and the look of the hotel upon first impressions is great. The room was slightly outdated in parts but otherwise was really nice and the view from the balcony was spectacular. The breakfast was ok but... More

This hotel looks like it was really nice when it was first built. On a sunny day it looks really pretty, it's right on the beach, there are palm trees and the lobby area looks nice. I imagine if you have a pool view room it would also be really nice. But we were on the other side where you... More

We reserved deluxed room but have been upgraded to suite room. this may because of low season on may. Hotel is close to Lamai beach. You can walk but not recommend to swim. You can go to Lamai public each not so far from hotel. We love this hotel.
