The hotel was okay. We stayed for 1 week at a standard room. The rooms was nice and clean. We got a room close to the pump house which at first was a bit disturbing but we got used to it fairly quick. The pool area was nice and clean, the restaurant okay. It was really close to the beach... More

We were staying in a standard room for one week. The standard room was OK, and nicely cleaned every day. Pool area was nice and had around 20 sun beds. The hotel also offered some sunbeds close to the beach. The breakfast was OK and also the food at the restaurant.

We booked 3 nights in a superior room for 2900 THB/night. One would imagine above avarage quality, when one hears "superior" - well let's say exaggeration has played its role in this case. The room we got was by all standards shabby - the sink in the bedroom and not in the bathroom (no place for that in the bathroom)... More

We booked 4 nights based on the very good reviews on the Internet. The room was not cheap - 2200 THB/night, so we thought this was ok for the holiday season on an island. When we arrived, they gave us a Superior room, so we thought: Great, better room for the same price. But this "Superior" room was by far... More

We stayed as two couples for 10 nights end of Nov/start Dec in 2014. In short: very relaxing, perfectly pleasant spot on the seafront, although (in my opinion) slightly overpriced. I would probably give it 3.5/5 if I could. Pros: -as mentioned, the location: you can walk directly onto the beach which, despite being probably the most popular on the... More

For us this hotel was perfect. Only a few min to Saladan with Tuk tuk. A lot of restaurants at the main road...a few hundred meters away. Only bad was that they don´t have street lights from main road to hotel. The standard bungalow that we had was clean but well used. Satellite TV exist but the reception was poor... More

Cottage consists of bungalows around the pool. Generally the price for the bungalow depends how far is it from the pool. Firstly we stayed in deluxe after we moved in to standard one and it was no big difference. Bungalows are well maintained, with terrace. Pool is nice and clean. The cottage is located just next to the beach. Restaurant... More

I'm always wondering why people give such good feedback when things are average, at most. I understand it is the only vacation for many and then want a positive feeling thinking back. But by overeating the disappointment for future guests is granted. The so called resort is a bunch of basic and crowded bungalows. Big but basic. The pool is... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights whilst on Koh Lanta. We were given a superior bungalow which is a couple of rows back from the pool. It was fairly basic, but worked fine as a base. There were quite a few Mosquitos in the room, and it just looked quite tired. The air con was good, and breakfast... More
