Stayed here for a couple of nights.. Thought Rooms were quite expensive especially considering there was lots of building work going on. Breakfasts included which were nice but if you are not up early enough then you miss them. Nice beach & sea is nice & quiet on this part of beach, sunbed use if free if staying there. Overall...

Booked this Hotel based on the mainly good reviews and considerate price, but was majorly dissappointed! Dirty bathroom, rather old interior, loud aircon, few umbrellas at the beach... We complained and were offered a different room, which was no different to the first. Only commend? "No one ever complained before you." Receptionist was annoyed and the worst? We booked through...

The staff in reception was really polite and funny. I negotiated the price and payed a little bit less than normal. I paid 1650baht for a really comfortable bungalow with air conditioning, safebox, fridge, tv, wifi and breakfast. Unfortunately the breakfast from 8 till 10AM was too early for me ;) The room was big, nice and clean, as well... More

We loved Tradewinds. Stayed in Villa 1 just by the pool and the beach. Beautiful view from our front door, massages on the doorstep, everything was close and a relaxing walk from the busy street. We could have been a whole world away instead of being right beside the main road and restaurant area. The villas are starting to look... More

We got upgraded to a beach-front room when we arrived, so already off to a good start. The rooms were clean and tidy and the resort itself seemed very well kept. The pool was warmed by the sun, but the perfect place for a quick dip to refresh. The breakfast room, overlooking the beach was great with a good range... More

Right on the beach, gardens, grounds, pool--GORGEOUS!! Beach is immaculate with ZERO litter and great waves for afternoon body surfing!! :) Breakfast great, lots of choices from fruit to cereals,...

This place is highly recommend! We stayed in a bungalow, almost on the beautifal beach of Chaweng. The bungalow was very nice and clean. This is one of the best places we slept in Thailand. The pool area was only a few month old.... This place offer great value for money. It wasn´t crowded like many places near the beach.... More

This property is in a great location has a good pool area and beach, and all in all is good value for money. We stayed in the bungalows which are clean ,tidy and acceptable. The breakfast is only just average as is the food otherwise and the bar service is slow. The place is a little dated and has a... More

This accomodation has great location, on the one hand so close to the beach, on the other near all the bars, shops, walking street, but still very quiet, great for children. Food in the restaurant very tasty, but expensive. Bungalow cleaned every day, also daily fresh towels, for bathroom and the beach. Breakfast tasty, but if you plan to stay... More
