We were meant to stay at Peace Resort for 8 nights but decided to move after seeing the accommodation. This review may go against the grain of other reviews and I’m not normally the sort of person to complain. However, we did move to the Bandara which was next door after seeing how the other half live. We called expedia and asking how much it could cost to move. We expected to have to pay quite a lot more but were surprised to find it was the same price. The Bandara is in a completely different league and we had an excellent stay. I would strongly recommend you compare the Bo Phut, Bandara and Anatara (spelling?) as they are all next to each other but are much better value then Peace.
We felt that the bungalows lacked privacy and did not match the photos they have on the website. The bungalows resembled a conservatory as they had nine large windows wrapping around the room so if you wanted privacy you had to pull the blinds down leaving you with a small dark room as the lighting was poor. If you kept the blinds up you could sit on your bed and look at your neighbours who would be a couple of meters away from you on all four sides. The rooms where also very small and poorly laid out.
The facilities at the hotel were also a let down as the pool was small and crowded, the gardens were none existent and the restaurant was also not up to scratch. We also felt the hotel were unhelpful once we decided to move (within 2hrs of arriving) as they made us stay for the night even though we had not used the room. I guess it was their prerogative but it did leave a sour taste. Fortunately we did not stay long enough to find other faults.
Strongly advise you to look at the other hotels as they are much much better and you can get similar deals!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated on Bophut beach in the northeast of the island, the Peace Resort is a newly refurbished, friendly bungalow style resort, ideal for a relaxing family getaway. The style is best described as contemporary Thai with the architecture following local traditions, but a transformation in 2008 has given a more up-scale look and feel while the prices have remained very reasonable. The resort is well laid out in small buildings, ensuring a more intimate, human scale, while the grounds are tranquil and green, with a restaurant that spills out onto the beach. ... more less
