This hotel hardly deserves praise. None of the staff are trying very hard, there is no cleaning whatsoever in the room, food is overcooked. The whole place feels like it's saving on expenses. The approach is: If you want service you need to ask for it. No ask, no service. Won't ever come back

I stayed in 2 different types of room here: the first was a bungalow & the second a deluxe double room. It needs to be said that the bungalow is very simple, with everything in working order, but not much attention to detail & it seems a bit old. Cleanliness of the bungalow was also not great, but livable. Bathroom... More

I was happy to find this place...beautiful location, clean, safe, gorgeous view of diamond cave cliff from the pool...I came here in low season, so I was often the only one in the pool in the morning. It's a short walk to west beach, which was out of my price range. I paid 800 baht a night here, I believe.... More

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

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
