We've booked this hotel for three nights and were really unhappy with this place! First of all ITS NOT CLEAN!!! Dim light in the bathroom made me feel sick, literally smells like old public restrooms. We've seen cockroach IN OUR BED!!! One of the waiters in the restaurant smells like homeless, seriously, no kidding. The surroundings are very nice, though,... More

We would like to reply to your very unkind review which we think is very cruel and unjustified together with some narrow mindedness. Yes sometimes when people work so hard in these hot climates perhaps somebody would not smell as fresh as when they first showered. You are very cruel in your comments, our staff served you well. You demanded... More

The owners & staff were very friendly and helpfull. The location is great: snorkling straight from the beach (equipment available for a symbolic amount plus free towels), and yet close to the pier. Nice welcome with usefull information to easy explore the Island. Fine bungalows with spacious balcony, good filling breakfast (worthy) etc. The only thing we were negative about... More

We stayed here with our family. Greay resort on a very good location. Close to the harbour, but no nuisance. Friendly and helpful staff. Ask them to organize a private snorkling tour. Cheap and good. We hired one of the larges bungalows with a large shower. They keep it very clean.

Felt so well-rested after 5 nights here! Check-in wasn't supposed to be until 1pm but we got there at 10am, having arrived early on the ferry, and we were able to go into our room an hour later. As soon as we arrived, the woman at the reception desk sat us down and gave us a thorough description of the... More

Stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed it. Great spot on the beach away from the main pier and it stays quite quiet. Some nice snorkelling just off the beach and a wreck not too far away - you can hire equipment from reception for 100 baht for your stay. The restaurant is excellent and ate here many times... More

We chose the Royal Resort based on the great reviews, and the convenient location. Our aim was to stay near the pier and main town where we could find good food for a cheap price, and then travel around the island during the daytime. This turned out to be a good decision, because some of the restaurants on the quiet... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 1 week with his mum and her boyfriend, we absolutely loved it. The welcome on arrival was lovely and the view across the beach is beautiful! The bungalows are simple but homely and have amazing views and are really nice to relax in, just a little warm upstairs without aircon. We made some... More

Stayed here for 5 nights at the end of June 2015. The bungalows are nice and spacious and a mosquito net is provided above the bed. There is a lovely dining/decking area that leads straight onto the beach with lovely views of Nang Yuang and the moutains. When we initially arrived we were told by the owner that booking.com had...

Amazing place a 5 minute walk from the busy "city centre" where the ferry arrive. Welcome was personal and guidance on sites to see, does and recommended don'ts given- much appreciated! Bungalow clean and simple but view from balcony and hammock (especially bungalow B9) was absolutely stunning. Personnel kind and so helpful. Food was delicious and if any "special needs"... More

This hotel was cheap and just amazing. A great location next to the pier but away enough to escape the pollution or noise from it. Private beach with amazing views. The bungalows were very nice but being wood bungalows in nature had mosquito problems particularly at night. Just be sure to sleep in your mosquito net and use repellent spray.... More
