Nice hotel with friendly staff; the hotel located a bit far from Main Street. We needed to travel by taxi only. The atmosphere is nice, interior is fine. We booked for deluxe room with king bed. The bed size is ok but it's a bit hard. Overall is good! If you wanna visit Mai Khoa Beach, this hotel is recommended!

Stayed here with my youngest son for one night in between the end of a live-aboard trip to the Similan Islands and our departing flight the next evening. The hotel is quite remote and is located beside the well-appointed Holiday Inn Resort. There are no shops or restaurants nearby unless you walk to the other hotel. We arrived at the... More

We stayed 2 nights before our flight home. The early morning taxi ride to the airport took about 20 minutes but there was almost no sound of aircraft while we were staying there. This hotel was the perfect antidote to the bustle of Bangkok and Thailand. It is located between a nature reserve and a practically deserted beach far away... More

Nice beach and lovely pool. Rooms are a bit dated. Slow wifi, small selection of tv channels and no change in bfast the 3 times we had it. We went for dinner at the neighboring hotel 1 night and that can be recommended. Hotel seemed low on guests even in Peak season.
