So reasonable! Excellent breakfast, staff and pools. 8 of us from different parts of the world stayed here and loved our pool view rooms. Great hotel with great location. Beach dirty was the only issue.

Really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. It was clean, quiet (except for the 2 aussie lasses who wanted everyone to know they were having a good time) and very good view of the beach and sunset (when its not cloudy). Ultra friendly staff, very good breakfast buffet range including local fruits. On the whole good wifi strength (our room... More

We got a great deal at this hotel. Upgraded to a deluxe room which was lovely. Freezing cold air con (love it!), the biggest bed I've ever seen (very comfy), a little private balcony with lagoon views and a table and chairs, small fridge with two bottles of free water each morning, bathroom was good but the tub/shower was a...

Old Hotel and definitely in need of updating. Rooms are very small and you have to climb into a high bath if you want to shower. Towels were old and grey. Breakfast was okay, choice was good but not appealing. The gardens were beautiful and there is a choice of pools which was good. The green frog was the best... More

We got a room on top floor with a spacious balcony and amazing sea view. Swimming pool was very nice as well as buffet breakfast. Definitely worth the money (we stayed during off season). Front desk staff could be more fluent in English though.

I rate this as "very good"; despite the awkward design of the hotel, it is very cheap for the good room quality and other amenities. When I say awkward, you'd think of most hotels as more of less a series of floors straight up like a normal building. Think of this hotel as being on more of a slant, where... More

I went here in September and found myself in Thailand during their rainy season. Despite the not ideal conditions, the hotel was very accomodating. The restaurant had a really nice selection, the pools were always open, and the front desk people were very helpful on setting up day tours and suggestions on things to do. The view from my room...
