Walked in to this place and paid 1,500 baht for one night. Expensive to be honest but I was only there for a day. The bungalows are acceptable (if you are hot and can't be bothered to look elsewhere). The rooms at the back of the resort (resort is being kind as I can't think of another word) are comparable...

Nice pool that's about it. We were lured in by cheap (still not that cheap) price. Room was hot and smelly - door / floor / drain and toilet all broken. Woke up one night and there was a scorpion in the bathroom as the drain didn't have a cover! Staff warned me to watch out for snakes in there... More

Hotel is located in quiet side of Railay next to Diamond Cave. Everyday monkeys visited the porch, was a great location to do all the activities at a reasonable price. We are planning on going back again.

We booked two nights here through agoda and easily checked in with no problems. After some research we found that this was the best priced place on Railey beach at short notice with room available. The place is lovely and the rooms were great. We had accidentally booked twin rooms instead of doubles but each room basically had two small... More

We were lied to straight from the start of our stay at this hotel! they lured us in with what they clearly know to be a cheaper price than the hotel next door, yet once we carried all our bags up the hill they told us the real price which was exactly the same as the hotel next door, which... More

Please avoid this place when staying in Railay as the staff are out to deceive and rob you however and whenever they can! This hotel does not even deserve 1 star!!! We arrived in Railay with no accommodation booked but we we're heading towards Mountain view which we had previously looked at online, on our way there we were stopped... More

Excellent location, great staff, beautiful views an d pools, and fairly good rooms for a decent price (apart from a serious ant problem ...but it is Thailand after all). Close to the amazing caves and not far from the west beach which is on the list of top beaches we have visited. Also, loved the pool and the beautiful gardens... More

Beautiful territory and it everything. Rooms demand renovation, are badly cleaned. In number there is no teapot, the hair dryer and the safe. There is an ordinary TV with badly showing channels. Number cleaning only on demand. Attention! The personnel steals things and money from number! Leave everything valuably in safes on a reception or you carry with yourself. Absolutely... More

Our experience was not as horrible as others. I thought for the price, how bad could it be? The hotel like rooms were okay. The floor wasn't clean and the bathroom light didn't work. because of the language barrier we opted not to bother with asking to fix it. It would have been more trouble than it was worth. The...

I stayed here for one night but found the place to be a reasonable and acceptable option. The resort has a nice pool, a shop and a good restaurant out the front. The rooms are dated and a little dirty but are OK for a night or two with friends. Lots of backpackers stay here butnot many couples/ families.
