Basic hotel, rooms are very affordable and you get a nice, quiet beach. Most visitors appear to be here for scuba diving at the near-by islands. Indeed, a scuba diving shop and instructor centre is located just outside hotel grounds. Rooms are very basic... No hot water was my main irk. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, probably because there... More

The place is not new and the room rather old but it was clean and spacious enough. Bfast was a mix of continental and thai food. The diving shop is next door. Very helpful people. The dives are easy and not spectacular. If you have not dived for a while this is a good spot to start. If you walk... More

It is nicely set up at a really beautiful beach. The noblesse is still showing in the price, unfortulately only there. It really needs some work done. The mold was the worst. I could not sleep and had a headache all night due to the smell of from the bathroom. Very friendly staff though not helpful and a clean biggish... More

Stayed in Villa D14, which was a lovely little villa near the beach at Thung Wua Laen Beach. This resort blends into the environment very well, and is designed to do just that. Some may say the resort is a little tired, i say it has character. The staff were wonderful and the wait staff at the restaurant, superb. I... More

Don't be put off by the drive in and the external prison barracks facade. The rooms are in fact fine for the cash and the beach location is lovely. Staff couldn't be more helpful. A great stopping point or hideaway. Breakfasts not great for my farang taste but overall excellent value for money.

Fantastic location on Tung Walaen beach in Chumphon. There are bungalows and more of an apartment block. We stayed in the bungalow which was in the beautiful gardens. It was a spacious bungalow with western style bathroom. The bungalows could do with a bit of tlc. There is a pool on site but you are a minute from the beach.... More

Terrible hotel. The staff is very nice but it is hard to communicate. The rooms were clean and air conditioned but every so often there were insects inside (spiders, geckos, etc.). In the area of ​​the lobby, restaurant and the pool was full of flies and mosquitoes.
