I have travelled many times in Thailand and this has to be the worst resort we have stayed in. The breakfast got our whole family very sick, 36 hours of throwing up and diarrhea and it's still not over. The breakfast is not fresh as almost no one eats there, so it sits uncovered and un heated for hours. The... More

We had to stay in this hostel as there was no availability of other options in Railay. This property is pricey and does not really offer ANY facilities. The staff is indifferent at least, not willing to provide us with any information, when asked about the supposed wifi in the room the receptionist talked to me in a very nasty... More

After getting food poisoning on the plane from a Thai airways curry I was so grateful to arrive here. Lots of people say that you can not get a long tail boat to get here in the evening. We shared with three other people at around 8pm, no problem. We had a pool view room which was clean and tidy.... More

We arrived in the afternoon and booked into the Diamond Cave around two. We first noticed the sand on the floor as we got to the room but ignored it as we were desperate for the beach. When we arrived back at the room after dinner the first thing we saw were two large cockroaches hanging out on the headboard... More

The staff was very rude and unhelpful. The room had no facilities at all and it was the most expensive room we paid in a month time trip. Really dirty room and bathroom , basin broken completely out from the wall (I was scared it could fall down over me) and leaking

The bungalow I was in was very clean and comfortable. I was only there for one night to get some luxury from cheaper hostels and I definitely felt that I got that here. Staff were friendly. No wifi working in my room - I had to go to the reception area for wifi. I paid 1500 bhat for a night... More

Surprised at the number of negative reviews...this is an ideal backpackers get away with decent accommodation and superb location. The pool area is average but the lodges themselves are quaint and ideal for a group of travellers. I loved it.

Very bad hotel. Poor conditions. Staff not prepared. No security at all. I had a lot of problems since I arrived. The localization is out of the way. The beach is dirty. I've been there for 4 days. I couldn't take the breakfast. Absolutely not recommendable. Don't stay there.

Ok, so booking a place a couple of days before New Years Eve was never going to go well…. We paid 2,800bt for a bungalow which was spacious (we were fortunate to have two double beds) however it also smelt of cigarette smoke, the door did not lock and the bathroom was dark and dingy. An American-style breakfast is included,... More
