“Great employees”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We spent 3 nights at the Aonang Cliff Beach Resort and they were most enjoyable. The location is great for walking to all the restaurants and shops in Ao Nang. The room was clean but a bit worn. I did love the patio with the drying rack to dry the swim suits on. The breakfast was ok some days better than others. The best part of the hotel was the staff they were all wonderful, we especially appreciated Ella and Nat they were so helpful.

This hotel was very nice, worthy of the 4 star rating. We stayed here as part of an awesome 3 week island-hopping trip put together by Andaman Adventures (yes, I know Ao Nang isn’t on an island, but you can and we did go island hopping from there).

Our first impression of the location wasn’t great, as there is a McDonalds right underneath the resort. On closer acquaintance, though, we realized that actually the location is very good, in that you escape from the crowds down there on the main drag. Our room had a great sea view and mountain view too, we liked the room very much, especially the hot tub on the balcony, which was completely private ….

The hotel is 10 minutes on foot from the beach, with lots of bargain shops en route where you can buy pretty much everything you might need on a beach holiday. There are lots and lots of places to eat nearby, so we didn’t eat in much, but the food we did have at the resort was good. We liked the infinity pool and the fact that we were so close to everything. Ao Nang is quite busy, not as packed as Phuket I hasten to add, but still pretty busy. If you’re after a quiet beach holiday then you should go stay elsewhere. Personally, I really enjoyed Ao Nang, as it was the one busy destination in a multi-destination holiday put together for us by our travel agent (for more on the other resorts, see my other reviews). It was good to spend 4 nights in busy Ao Nang as we had just arrived from super-chilled Koh Mook and were en route to laid-back Lanta. I personally would not have wanted to spend my whole holiday in Ao Nang, though.

On a business trip to Bangkok I had four days off and decided to fly to Krabi Town in southern Thailand and AoNang in particular for the famous limestone cliffs as featured in a James Bond movie.
Staying at the AoNang Cliff Beach Resort was an excellent choice. I had a beautiful, modern room with cliff and water views. Resort facilities, like pool and gym added to my comfortable stay. All staff were very helpful and courteous; the excursion desk managed to get me on a PhiPhi Island tour that was claimed to be booked out by other vendors. Excellent Thai food for dinner at Hotel BBQ and superb Continental breakfast with egg station - yummy omelette.
Thank you, I shall bring the family next time.

Room Tip: Upper part of hotel offers great cliff & water view.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

the standard rooms face the busy street, so forget the balcony.
They are also located directly under the hotels restaurant, so from early morning you will have its noise just above your bed.

The pool is tiny, no sea view, and we didnt use it at all.

Breakfast is actually good. the baked goods and juices could be fresh though.

The towels are so old and torn, I would have through them away years ago.

For wifi you need to pay extra, which is so annoying. We already stayed in cheaper hotels and visited restaurants in Krabi with free hi speed Wifi, so why not here in this overprised hotel?

A beautiful resort with an equally amazing and friendly staff!!! Great location with eateries, market place, beach at your door step. Big spacious and well maintained rooms and the house keeping staff are more than eager to take care of your every request. Nice and varied breakfast everyday. Kudos to the Resort!!!

Room Tip: always take the room on the third or fourth floor. Gives a great view of the ocean and cliff.

My wife and I both loved staying at this hotel. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly and eager to help and make you feel welcome. The breakfast buffet has a great variety of both Western and Thai food. The cocktail bar is situated next to the pool perfect for relaxation. The rooms are well furnished and very comfortable. I would definitely stay there again. The hotel can also arrange a host of services such as scooter rental, spa treatments and tour advice.
