My Fiancee (27) and I (29) stayed here for 5 nights at the start of November. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were on the top floor and had good views over the swimming pool, stream, and out to the beach and ocean. The current onsite manager (Peter, a hungerian guy) was an absolute delight and very helpful. The room was... More

I stayed at this charming hotel at the end of October, 2014 and again for a couple of nights the beginning of November. As it was off season there were few guests which meant a completely relaxing stay as a result. In fact, I was treated like family from the moment I arrived. The entire team, from Ja to the... More

Stayed here in Feb 2014. Had a fabulous time and thought the location and the beach restaurants were excellent.Delayed writing this review to hope for some good news about Bruno, but so far none. I agree with all the previous reviewers that it is a real shame that this hotel is slipping down the rankings. If the joint owner presently... More

We booked this hotel last year when it was top spot on the Trip Advisor ratings. Since then, it seems to have had its fair share of traumas. Firstly, Marcus, the owner, had a stroke, then the family had to get rid of the manager, Bruno, because he allegedly, drank too much and ran the hotel down. But now, Marcus's... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights, when we were evacuated from our live-aboard trip due to rough weather. Long story short, we arrived in Bang Niang around 18h and were both still feeling rather seasick and therefore just needed to get to a hotel as quick as possible. So whilst we had a... More

Our stay at Khao Lak Riverside Resort did not get off to the most auspicious start. Like a previous reviewer, we arrived late at night to find the resort locked and barred and in total darkness. We hammered, we called, we telephoned and finally roused a guest who was pleasant and sympathetic but who was unable to help further. After... More

We stayed here a couple of years ago when everything was superb; so we were a bit puzzled by our rather chaotic arrival, then sad to discover that Marcus (co-owner and organiser) has been recovering from a stroke. Shortly after we arrived Marcus' wife Ja took over the day to day running of the hotel, with support from Marcus (his... More

It is such a shame that this hotel is dropping down the trip advisor reviews as I am sure when it was number 1, it deserved it's position as it has a beautiful location, the rooms are modern but with some little Thai influence so you don't think you are anywhere in the world, the pool area is quiet and...
