The hotel locates at the main street of Kenting, it's close to shops, restaurants and bus stops. Room is clean and spacious, the decorations are stylish and modern. My room was at 3rd floor, with nice seaview, although partly blocked by another side of the same hotel. Staff are friendly and willing to offer help about our trip planning and... More

We spent 2 nights in this hotel in the suite room on the upper floor. We just loved it. Location is just on Main Street so you can enjoy Kenting at night. The room is big with eclectic decoration as it is in the rest of the hotel. The bathroom has a huge bath and the balcony is a nice... More

We booked 2 nights at Smokey Joe's for a little getaway to the beach in the middle of our Taiwan trip and I am so happy we decided to stay at this hotel! The family suite was very modern and spacious! The beds were so comfortable and the bathroom was beautiful (we loved the rainfall shower!). The room also included... More

This was our 7th stay at Smokey Joe's boutique hotel in Kenting and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming, greeting our whole family like long lost relatives. For the second time we stayed in their 8 person, 3 floor room, perfect for a large family and/or family and friends with 4 really comfortable double... More

Just spent a night there with kids in a Pool side family room, Looking for a hotel in Kenting, have many choices, many star class hotels. Smokey Joes is a little expensive than other similar class hotels and have no Spa, warm water pools, kids play areas, or big array of food at buffet style! Smokey Joes as you know... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. The rooms are really modern and clean with funky interior design. The swimming pool is nice but not compared to the pools at Caesar and Chateau due to size restrictions. The staff are really friendly, extremely helpful and well trained. The downside I'd say is the food in the restaurant. Pretty average place. The location... More

Our room was very spacious, modern and had a great outlook to the pool. The staff were fabulous and able to organise cars hire, transport etc. The pool was great and a necessity as there is no swimming allowed at the beach (which is crazy as it is beautiful). The location is perfect, especially at night with the Mojito man... More

Lovely hotel, excellent situation, very clean, lots of nice little touches in the room, extremely helpful staff..... but unfortunately the breakfasts are absolutely awful. After the second day's breakfast offering we knew the first day's awfulness hadn't been a fluke and ended up paying to eat out after that. It's such a pity that all the good things we found... More

The only room we could find available over the weekend was a family room which didn't look that great in the photos but we were very pleasantly surprised! Comfy beds, mini bar, great shower, nice little pool and a great breakfast. Really well located, friendly staff - for a 3/4 star property this ticks all the boxes.
