First,these people here are the hands down nicest and willing to help make everything good. This is a rock climbing property and caters to that crowd. The rooms (delux) were sensational....clean, things working, clean, well kept up, clean. The air conditioning in my unit was terrific and the hot running water a necessity. If you are going to stay here... More

I was here during my trip in Asia for 7 weeks and this was definitely my favorite place. I even flew back to Thailand only to go and visit this place again and I'm a budget traveler. You will love this place if you are up for climbing, slow days on the beach and good drinks and beers at the... More

I can imagine that some reviews are rather negative. However, me as a rock climber wanted a good bed, an A/C-room and a good shower. What else do you need? Oh, the beach on walking distance? Check! Nice restaurants around the corner? Check! Other activities than climbing? Check! Perfect price/quality I'd say: go for it!

Awful location. Pictures online show fantastic beach views but the reality is a building site/slum on two sides. Asked to change rooms for a view as advertised and was told no you paid for this room. Room itself not bad although toilet seat broken and safety box not attached to anything. Slight smell in the air which I guess is... More

A small group of us teachers stayed here during a 4 day weekend. We always look for somewhere not too expensive but not too cheap either. We stayed here during the low season so the price was lowered. But we wouldnt of paid anymore for it. Clean bed, aircon and a shower that works. These are the 3 essentials and... More

The front desk staff are extremely rude and dishonest. I stayed for three nights total while on a study abroad trip with fellow students. All nights I woke to monkeys jumping on the roof and the lights flashing on and off all night. My Samsung tablet and my friend's iPad mini were left in the drawer. When we called and... More

We didn't stay. The place literally looks like a dumpsite. The guy at reception refused to show us our bungalow. He was too busy playing some game on his phone and seemed to be annoyed we showed up. "You booked for 2 nights, so now pay for it" he said. So we left.

... based on what I heard from fellow climbers. Room was clean and cleaned well daily. It was a welcome home at the end of days of hard climbing. Shower was warm. AC was cool but leaked on some days. I did have a small lizard living along the ceiling of my room. He chirped in a way that wasn't... More

I can say this hotel is the worst hotel/resort i ever stayed. Me and my friend booked there for 2 nights from 19th February to 21st February 2015 via Agoda and we made a payment online with Deluxe Villa price for high season. When we arrived there the receptionist there did not say hi or smile at all but though... More
