Benjamin Resort / Hotel in Kamala, on the beach, at the end of the walking street. Perhaps the best location in Kamala. An old hotel, basic rooms but nicely painted and clean. If you are on the beach / beach holiday is a good and cheap place to stay, right on the beach and not far from the city. I... More

Got a place in the back close the water. Great value, great view from our floor level balcony. Ice (Issa) from the staff helped us out a lot and everyone was very nice and friendly. Room was cleaned every day and the AC was cold. Best thing is location-run out door to beach or go out to "can do" bar... More

Helpful staff, clean and on the beach. Good value, right off the main beach road. Lots of ars and restaurants nearby. Also, a small mini mart near the entrance which does laundry fast and inexpensive.

My room was clean with a/c and tv (incl Eng channels). Staff extremely friendly. Very good value for people travelling on a budget, but wanting to enjoy the beach. You can feel like you are on vacation, but without the price tag of the nearby beach resorts.

They rent old scooters here, which easily break down. As a consequence, you loose half a day, they come bring you another scooter, but with no gasoline and they do not refund the gasoline which you already put in the previous motorbike. They are however not ashamed to sell it again to another customer. What a rip-off place.

We reserved an appartment with sea-view And payed a deposit for it. When we arrive there, they told us: Only a stinking appartment in the lowest level, without window, is free. The gave us back the deposit, but nothing more. So we have to search another hotel, when it was already dark. Not funny

Already in the booking the Benjamin has asked us 1500 baths to night for a room without sight on the sea when on their Web site the price was of 1000... More

This hotel was completely overpriced, I would not pay $5 US to stay here. The sheets were dingy and dirty, the room smelled, the bathroom was dingy and disgusting, the television didn't work, I don't know how many more things I can say to tell people not to stay here. We were told breakfast was included, but then the next... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night. I have absolutely no idea how this place made it into the lonely planet! I made a reservation in advanced via email, and they charged me 1500 baht per night, about 45 USD even though the website said 300-1000 baht/night for a room. This hotel looks absolutely nothing like the website photographs,... More
