The resort is clean and the staff are ok. We found that the breakfast was good enough to set you up for the day but the resort is overpriced compared to other places on the island. The hotel is located close to bars/restaurants which is good.

I stayed in a nice bungalow close to the beach, but in a lovely garden. You pay extra for WIFI, but the WIFI was quite poor. The Reception staff were unfriendly, however, all the diving staff were welcoming. There is a breakfast buffet but the food isn't great.

I stayed here only for a couple of nights while visiting the islands. The hotel is alright. There wasn't much interaction between the staff and myself but on my last day I had a woman knock on my door asking me to leave the room 30 minutes prior to check out. Not sure why. The rooms are average, nothing special.... More

We booked the deluxe room for 2 nights. The welcome wasn't warm as expected for the standards of this place and hasn't been much helpful and they even charged 200 baht for calling a taxi. The room was overall clean, but the bathroom wasn't cleaned between the two nights and the hotel did not provide soap or reasonable bathrobes. The... More

Not much to say about the place. Nice swimming pool . . (35 degrees ! !!) The cheap bungalows are 5 min walk away from the beach. but the problem is the incompetence of the staff . they smile stupidly at all time but need 20 min to cook 2 eggs or 40 min to miscalculate the bill. even the... More

Upon check out the rude woman and the boy with the streak in his hair withheld our passports until we paid an additional 6000 Baht which was discounted from the price when we first checked in and paid for our entire stay upfront. They held our passports as a room deposit and when we checked out (8 nights later) they... More

Seashell resort has beautiful property including a great salt water pool, green lush grounds, and a great buffet breakfast. However, the reception staff ruins the mood completely. In partucular, there is an employee at reception named Narongrit Cartoon who is just too aggressive. His English is poor so he overcompensates by yelling. We were told our room gets 2 free... More

Stayed three nights at "Pool View Villa", without pool view and totally no villa either. Not clean, worn out bungalows, breakfast is an absolute disgrace, as are the prices per night. Ah I forgot to mention NO Wifi, out of range in the "Villa" and even no chance to ask someone to improve the reach.
