The staff were truly horrific! On our second day we went out shopping and came back to find a member of staff trying to get into our room. House Keeping had already been earlier that morning and he had no reason to be going anywhere near our room. He didn't speak English and quickly shuffled away after we tried to... More

Payed 3000baht/night. Stayed here with my girlfriend for 3 nights. We lived in a deluxe bungalow. There are other options as well. The hotel is located on top of a hill, if you decide to walk there from town it's a 10-15 minute uphill work out. From our room we got to see three sunsets. One thing that disrupted the... More

If you're looking for somewhere to chill out, relax in peace and catch the sun, this is the perfect place. We booked a sea view bungalow and got exactly what we were expecting. The view was the best we'd had throughout the whole of Thailand! The rooms are basic - we didn't spend any time in our room until it... More

I arrived with a group of 6, we had all booked a bungalow for 10 nights on bookings.com and had had confirmation of the booking and had even extended our stay days before arriving, and again got confirmation. When we arrived, instead of just being honest and saying they didn't have any rooms free they tried to take us to... More

We came here for our honeymoon and we noticed by email month before.. When we arrived they said they didn't know (but we saw our mail on their reservation papers) they... More

The view from the sea view rooms is impressive, however that was all that was good. The resort is on the steepest hill you can imagine making it unbearable to get to/from your room, the advertised golf buggy is infrequent and can't pick you up from your room. The room itself has a very uncomfortable bed and the glass door... More

We stayed there in August 2014 for 6 nights. The bungalows are nice but need some maintenance. Room clean. The view over the sea was great. There are steeps steers but for thus that do not like to walk there is service ensured with an electrical car. The breakfast was satisfactory for as not to many options. The restaurant on... More

After waiting 15 minutes to check in, the man on the desk informed us you have to pay in advance, hardly standard but we complied. We checked the amount which was correct but he then very sneakily and dishonestly carried out a currency conversion of his own and charged us in GBP rather than thai baht. This dirty little trick...

I would not stay here again. Located on a very steep hill with many wooden, broken stairs. Upon our arrival we were taken to our room in a golf buggy and the staff member was completely drunk, this is not an exaggeration. The smell of alcohol was pouring off him, he could barely stand up and he could not string... More

We spent a few nights here on a recent trip. It is a little out of "town" but you can rent a scooter for cheap and we used that for transportation. The bungalow itself was sparse but nice and clean. Having a porch looking out over the Andaman Sea was a huge perk. The pool is also really beautiful. Extremely... More
