Very nice hotel. A lot of stairs, but with a fantastic view to the sea, the town and the Big Budda: Breakfast was not very exciting, but good Thai standard. The staff was so nice and friendly. During our stay, I was celebrating my birthday, and when we came down for breakfast, the staff came in singing, and with birthday-cake.... More

This was our first trip to Thailand and we booked this hotel as part of our package. We couldn't be happier with our stay or the staff that worked there. We arrived late in the evening and were checked in quickly and the staff couldn't do enough for us (carried our luggage, checked the room was clean and to our... More

3 star hotel nothing like a resort, maybe fancy in 1980 but outdated regarding facilities and room interior. Slow wifi only possible in the not air conditioned front desk area. Steep walkway to the rooms having a/c units blowing hot air in your face, no elevator. Poor pool area. The breakfast buffet is very good though.

We stayed here for a week and loved it! Our room was very big and the large balcony overlooked Kata Beach. The room was comfortable and everything was clean. The swimming pool was very nice and refreshing but it was just nice to be able to sit on the balcony and watch the waves roll in to Kata Beach. It... More

Stayed here for 7 nights at this resort. It's at the western tip of Kata beach. Not right on the beach but easy access within minutes. Room is up the hill but worth the effort. The higher, the better view. Staff performance was excellent especially their Front Office Manager Ratchadapon. Thank you for a help during our stay

The first impression is a very warm welcome followed by a cold welcome drink.... Suitcases taken to your room by a very strong bellboy ..... Lots of steps.... The hotel is... More

We were booked into this hotel but appeared a mix up with second night so can only review for the one night. The receptionist made arrangements for our second night and hotel took us to another hotel following day. The hotel has lots of stairs and walkways which gives it a spacious air but if you have a problem walking... More

For the price we could not fault this resort. The staff were helpful & friendly, the rooms clean & great views & the breakfast was fresh & delicious. It's a short walk to the beach & other restaurants. On a very steep hill, so you earn your evening beers.
