We stayed in one of the deluxe bungalows for three nights and really liked it. It was a big room with a really comfy huge bed. The only drawback was the massive number of mosquitos. They provide a net but I still got bitten a lot. The doors to the terrace aren't sealed very well so I think they can... More

If you are a rock climber and not on a tight string budget then this resort is for you: most of the guests are climbers, climbing areas are 1 min walking distance away. However, it's ridiculously hard to get to this place. It's locked away from Krabi or AoNang(two closest towns) by mountains and oceanAnd the only way to get... More

This was among the cheapest accommodation we were able to find in the Railay Area and still not great value considering other places we've stayed for much less. The resort was a little dated. The AC bungalow we had was large but the rest of the resort could have done with some improvements. The staff were friendly, especially the restaurant... More

I've been traveling around Asia for a couple of months now and this is the first place I've had anything bad to say about. We haven't been too fussy about where we stay but here we found was a bit unpleasant. Electricity worked only during the night and by the time we woke up every morning it had been turned... More

Overpriced. Rooms were very average. Maid service was poor. Stayed in many a resort in Thailand and found this one to be poor value. Avertizes Wifi, it is very spotty. I'm not saying it is a bad resort, just not good value in our opinion. The bay itself is beautiful. Rooms can be aways from the beach.

This resort consists of a bunch of really cute bungalows. The entrance is right on the beach and even the furthest back bungalow is only a few minute walk from beachfront. Accommodations were nice and very clean. Decent restaurant right on the beach that overlooks the water. Reception seemed to lack interest in helping/talking to anyone...that was the only real...

We stayed there for 3 nights, last March 2014. From the start it seemed that everything is not okey with this resort! The receptionist didn't show any interest and the staff in generally was unhappy and avoided any contact to us. Only smily person was a guy who worked at the restaurant. The worst was the couple who seemed to... More

After your cab drive from the airport, you have to take a longboat to Tonsai Bay. We had to wade through the water carrying backpacks with no help from the boatman.Upon arriving at Tonsai we were treated like a huge inconvenience. I had asked for a cot on BOOKING.COM and he had no record of it and told us my... More

A million miles away from the 'Riley experience', this place has it all: stunning rooms, one of the best restaurants in the village (located next to 'Muscle Beach' where rock climbers go about their business right next to the swimmers), their open air bar with wooden chill out platforms and very helpful and efficient staff. Right at the end of... More

What a disappointment! Absolutly no value for money at all. It started at check in. The receptionist didn't show any interest in his job whatsover and during the whole check in procedure, which took about half an hour, he was playing poker on his phone. When I asked him what we where waiting for he just looked at me and... More
