We stayed in the standard room. No safe in room. Wifi doesn't work unless you are at the front desk. Bed and pillows are rock solid. No fridge. Bathroom was filthy, barely a shower. Extremely basic for 1,500 baht per night, would have been better off at a hostel

Let me say that the good point of this resort is the location, on the main walking street and just 30/40 mt from the beach. Rooms are very simple, not dirty but old and consumed. Wifi is working only in the restaurant A lot of mosquitos Food at the restaurant it is ok and price also ok. Personally i dont... More

We had to stay here because we couldn't get booked onto the boat. The hotel did a good deal and gave us bungalows. For one night, they were fine but, I wouldn't want to spend too much time there. The staff seemed nice and the food in the restaurant was good, with a gorgeous view.

We checked in for around 10mins and left. The other reviews don't lie. The room which we were given - was dirty/filthy. Toilet was covered in something; not sure what but it was very unpleasant. We asked for clean bed sheets as there was some sort of s**t all over the bed so they moved us to another which loads... More

Stayed here when diving with Phoenix Divers. The diving was great; this place stunk. The thing is, I read the reviews here and so had no excuse. I stayed in a filthy, cramped AC units. I hear the fan only units are worse, although that is hard to imagine. Add to it the indifferent management, and you have a place... More

We stayed for 3 nights after booking online- the photos were very deceiving!! All I can describe this place as is filthy and disgusting. There is overflowing rubbish everywhere, including our room which was never cleaned or emptied in 3 days!! Bear in mind that Thai toilets don't take soiled toilet paper.... I would caution anyone who thinks this is... More

Unfortunately the reception staff lets this place down; they were unfriendly to the point of being surly. Also the ground floor room they put us in was dark, smelled strongly of mildew and was in the midst of rooms being renovated. It was not a place to linger. The bungalows did not look much better with one tiny window. The... More

We were expecting more for the price, but you pay a premium for being on the island I guess. The room is probably the worst we have stayed in during our 3 months in SE Asia. The room smelled very damp and was dirty, in 2 nights housekeeping never came in which made the situation worse. The reception staff aren't... More

It is without doubt the worst place I have stayed in having travelled through most of South East Asia. The room was so damp that all of the walls were black with mould, the beds were wet and the room smelt like a crack den. Cockroaches rained free throughout the room and the staff are worse than useless at sorting... More
