We experienced similar themes to others. While this looks to be one of the more budget resorts close to the beach it could be much better with significant planned maintenance (e.g. sliding doors not working, rotting wood) and smart investment. It is okay - the pool is good, the location will suit those wanting to be close to the beach,... More

We stayed at Suwan Palm based on the recommendation of a friend. She stayed there a couple of years ago. Since then, clearly the place has gone down hill. It's still clean, but the condition of the rooms seems to have deteriorated tremendously. Our first room had major electrical problems with the power going out 22 times in 45 minutes... More

The Suwan Palm Resort is a small charming hotel on the beach. Situated in a quiet road but within easy walking distance to the town with lots of restaurants and shops. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is excellent and there is wi-fi free of charge in every room. The sandy beach is beautiful and not at... More

We stayed one night in the low season. We got a good price. The hotel was right on the beach and also has a nice swimming pool. The breakfast was just ok, but the saving grace was you could get fresh cooked eggs. The Irish Bar does not seam to operate anymore and the reasoning was that it was closed... More
