After i complain, the receptionist told me i can leave the hotel but get no money back. And that we are the first people who... More

We stayed here with our 2 little boys. We arrived late so were looking for a place to stay 1night. We were planning to look for another place on the next day. Finally we stayed at big fish 5nights. It was just perfect for us. We had just what we wanted: simple accommodation on the beach where children could play... More

We are staying here for 5 days now in the family room ( 5 meters from the beach, 4 beds, fan, 1800 baht/ night). Its basic and the matrasses are typical thai, but it's clean and the atmosphere is very chill. The people at the restaurant are very friendly and helpfull. The food is the same standard as the rest... More

Our appartment was infested with fighting rats (!!!) But if that wasn't enough, the managerin was a) extremely unfriendly (i quote her: "shut up now!")  b) practically told us that we were lying and c) that we were just wasting her time. Unfortunately we didn't read any of the reviews before checking in because we booked it on arrival. If... More

Don't book this hotel. Money is the only thing that counts, you have to pay for everything. Problem is that you have to pay in advance so you can not do anything anymore afterwards, the staff is not friendly and when you have a comment, they do not take it serious. The rooms are only cleaned after 3 days, this... More

The room are overpriced and my sheet was not clean. The woman manager is unfriendly and talk to you only about money. Never one smile, and rude with her employees. Wifi is not free. Restaurant is overpriced also. The only good point is the inner garden with tropical trees and the direct view on the beach.

I wonder if the staff at this place ever read the reviews people put onto TA! We echo much of what has been said by others. The setting is grand, the rooms basic but fine. Plenty of hot water and the only place we had a choice of two movie channels in English. It was also the only place they... More

Stunning location, beautiful bay, great outdoor seating area, lovely sunset views, plenty of lovely wooden sun loungers, clean, comfy beds...why do they have to spoil it by being so rude? Everything about this place would be perfect if the staff would turn on a smile and be a bit more in tune with what people expect when they are on... More

Firstly rooms were fine, no fridge or hot water, but the Fan was fine, and in Thailand, I personally didnt mind the lack of hot water for a few days! location is... More

Ridulously over priced for the below standard accomadation. But to top off the day light robbery. I have never come across hotel staff so rude and unhelpful in all my travels, have been to 6 parts of Thai land in the past 5 weeks of travelling, and the are the worst people I have had to deal with by a...
