Just spent three days at Molly's and was sorry we didn't book longer. All the staff are really friendly and helpful. Relaxed atmosphere and easy service. You can have your breakfast at 2PM if you want. Lovely pool, luxury rooms and laidback ambience. Short walk or rickshaw to livelier areas. Can't recommend this one enough.

We arrived at Molly's on New Year's Eve and we're warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Heather & Dharma made the effort to talk and get to know us which was very nice. The location is a short rickshaw ride away to the beach which means it's a lot quieter and more peaceful - perfect when relaxing by... More

Just returned from 3 weeks based at Molly's We selected Molly's from other TA reviews and were not disappointed in any way - we had a great time. Heather and Dharma were the most sociable hosts, not forgetting the '2 girls' and the guys in the restaurant, where the food and service was fantastic - great tandoor food in evening.... More
