Absolutely love this hotel & would recommend it to anyone - couples, friends, family with children... anyone :).

We visited this place with our parents & didnt want to stay in Patong. Hence, picked this hotel after reading reviews on the net & absolutely loved our 4-day stay here. The highlights of the hotel are.
1. Great location - right opposite Karon beach. The hotel provides enough beach towels, slippers etc. so that you can make the most of the location.
2. Spacious, spotless clean rooms, with tasteful wood decor.
3. Bathroom had a bathtub, new fixtures & no creaks/leaks or any minor unpleasantries.
3. Great breakfast spread. They even made us vegetarian noodles since we were all vegetarians - and the serving was HUGE.
4. Has enough parking space.
5. Service & staff are very cordial & courteous, as is the hallmark of the Thais.

If you have a car, main Kata / Karon streets for food is a very short drive. Else, you can get Tuk-tuks from the main road. The hotel has the usual options to book snorkelling trips etc as well.

We paid ~SGD80-90 per night (breakfast included) for our stay here - and felt it was well worth the money.

Room Tip: They have 2 types of rooms - some have a view of the stadium next to the hotel. Others have a poolsi...

What a breathtakingly BEAUTIFUL hotel!!! The manager in particular, as well as the other staff really went out of their way to make my stay a WONDERFUL, SPECIAL one!! You could literally "fall into the swimming pool" so close it was to my room!! Absolutely lovely!! You will not be disappointed with the tranquil, beautiful setting of this hotel! The rooms were so big and lovely!! If you need to unwind from a stressful life, this is the venue to come to!!

Room Tip: Rooms that walk out onto the pool is excellent!!!

We had a pleasant 12 night stay here. The staff are friendly & hard working - they alone deserve to be rated a 5. The hotel rooms are very clean. But you cannot escape the fact that this is a 3 star hotel & needs work doing to do it to make it the 4 star it claims to be.

We were a little disappointed that despite informing them we were celebrating our friends 35th wedding anniversary & their promising to put a surprise cake & fruit for them in their room that this never materialised.
___________

The pros:

Great location within very easy walking distance to the beach, shops & restaurants. Could not be located better, whilst still being set back & tranquil.
Great staff.
Rooms are very clean
Useful beach bags & towels are in the room for your use
Umbrellas, slippers & dressing gowns are in the room if you need them.


The cons:

The restaurant has no air con & is open to the pool area which makes it easy for the birds to enter the dinning room. This is very unhygienic as the birds then leave droppings on the chairs etc & fly up on the tables & drink out of the milk jugs placed there for your tea/coffee. I saw this happen several times. Really these jugs should have lids, or & even better would be to enclose the dining area.

The hotel grounds need updating, particularly the decking round the pool. It moves & is coming apart, really needs replacing.

The rooms are very tired & paint is peeling off all the wood areas. Although there are various lamps around the rooms the lighting is very poor, it's a struggle to read comfortably. And limited light in the bathroom makes it so difficult to shave or get an eyelash out of your eye!

A real refurb is required in the rooms, & bathrooms. Our tap on the bathroom sink was loose - I'm amazed it never came away in our hands- & despite reporting it was never fixed. The toilet just constantly flushed. even when you thought it had been sorted it started again.

The rooms (or at least the 2 rooms we had) have connecting doors to another room, (sadly we were not given our friends as the occupients on the other side of the door) & unfortunetly this means if the people next door to you smoke, then smoke will filter into your room, which is very unpleasant. It also means that if they're a little loud then the noise will stream into your room through these doors.

Our rooms on the 4th floor had balconys but to be honest they are so small & cramped that you wouldn't want to spend any length of time on it, & the peeling paint on the rail makes it unpleasant & uncomfortable to just lean on to look down over the pool..

_____________________

All in all, if you're limited in budget & get this hotel on a good deal as we did then it's a satisfactory, average stay, bearing in mind that you will not be getting a 4 star hotel. However if you're expecting a plush, quality, high standard 4 star accomodation, this is not for you.

OK.. the bad news is that the hotel is not as new as some we've stayed in. However the location, food, cleanliness and lovely staff more than make up for that. We didn't try the evening meal but the breakfast menu was varied and really tasty.
The hotel is seconds from the beach (and a what a beautiful beach)
The staff were polite, always eager to chat or help where they can.

We just completed a 4 day stay at the Andaman and we throughly enjoyed ourselves. The Spa was grand and our experience with Rose and Cream was incredible. Took a Thai cooking class with the Chef and guided by Nind who is a bright star. Great breakfasts everyday and superb choices abounded. I would go back in a heartbeat. Well Done Andaman!!!
