“Hotel is good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed 1 night at Foto hotel during October. It was very new experience with concept of photographer. Comfortable bed, nice design. Swimming pool on the top is fantastic and nice view.
Breakfast is local food and delicious.

we experienced the blockage of the shower drain during the entire stay - the shower room was flooded and we couldnt even take a proper shower!

we had asked the staff to repair the bathroom but they just checked the blockage for 3 minutes and told us to wait then no action at all until we checked out! the shower was still flooded when we checked out!

requested for tooth brush at 22:45 from the front desk,the staff said they will send it to my room so i waited until midnight...but didnt receive anything that night so i had to request again in the morning...

one of the front desk staffs (girl called oily?) was rude,unfriendly and quite cold. i didn't feel welcomed at all when i was talking to her. but the rest of the staffs we dealed with are very nice and helpful.

the hotel has a good concept but really need to pay a lot more attention to details!

I am a great believer if you get bad onset ice never complain just don't go bsck, so after a few months, I thought things would of improved...., but unfortunately anything but.


Twice we went, once for Lunch and then in the Evening, terrible to say the least.

Lots of nicer places to choose from, with decent service....

Foot hotel best avoided,...,

Don't be fulled by nice website!!
I consider myself well travelled and this is one of my worse experience.
The so called "ozone" room, I knew had no sea view, but didn't quite expect facing a grey wall full of A/C for level below. I couldn't sleep the first night because of noise. Bad architecture if you ask me. Hotel did upgrade me the next day but to a lower level and guess what... Elevator was broken for my entire stay.
When I asked front desk to help me book a day trip they say they can't do it anymore, despite advertising that service on their website.
Today at 9pm after that day trip I wanted to have diner at the in house restaurant and bar that is suppose to close at 11pm. I was told it was about to close with no warming in the room or elsewhere. So I had to rush to order and bad luck the simple beef burger I ordered wasn't available anymore...
And no manager to talk to....
Staff's English is overall very poor which doesn't help to solve problem...
Internet doesn't remember your device so you have to log in constantly. That is when Internet is working. It wasn't this morning...
Water in the shower is either cold or hot, nothing in between...
And the hotel is nowhere near the beach, so be ready to sweat or pay 200 bhats every time you want to leave the hotel!
Hotel did try to fix mistakes but better not to have to fix any in first place...

It's a photo-graphic hotel with every corner a photo-taking opportunity moment. The interior of the hotel is awesome. The thing I love the most is the room! We had the Deluxe Ozone room, and our floor we high enough to have partial sea view. Huge room, spacious toilet with bath tub, the glass door opens wide leading to the balcony, and the extended balcony area. The swimming pool is fantastic, not to say, the view at the pool. Extended breakfast timing, usually it's 7am - 10am, but for Foto Hotel, it's extended to 1pm.

Room Tip: Choose Deluxe Ocean View.

fab hotel, came in March last year, booked as a mystery hotel and got a reasonably good price, the hotel is to die for - its fab, modern and absolutely stunning. Incorporate with some real Thailand places though PLEASE, we backpacked about at Phuket was my least favourite place but this is defo on one of my favourite hotel lists! enjoy

This hotel had fabulous amenities, the hydro pool alone is well worth a visit. Food and rooms were of high standard, Location and sports facilities were excellent. Secluded spot but still within convenient distance to Cork City. Very enjoyable stay and would highly recommend it.
