“Nice hotel close to the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

We spent two weeks in this hotel and we enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The staff was friendly and the hotel was clean and on a very good place close to the beach. There was a building site in the neibhor which sometimes could be noisy but we were mostly not at the hotel during their working hours. The pool was big and great for kids and there was enough on sun chairs for everyone. The only downside was that the restaurant / poolside bar service was sometimes slow, but again we did not use a lot of these services. The breakfast was good with good choises also for the children. I can recommend this hotel if you want to be close to the beach, close to the long tail boats and litlebit further from Ao Nangs centre - but still within a short walking distance.

We had a pool room, was awesome, my friends were next door so that was handy... happy hour needed some music but that was ok we had our own ipod and speakers...
Room was nice and spacious, bathroom abit small but manageable..

Staff friendly, breakfast was nice,
Ultimately had lovely ambience and was nice and quiet in June, weather was great!
Lots to do and see grab a long boat from across the road and they'll take you to some beautiful beaches!
I'll be back....

Room Tip: pool room definately worth it!

My stay was in December for a 3 days / 2 night getaway. The hotel is located around 30 to 40 minutes from Krabi Intl. Airport and expect to pay 600 Baht for transportation. If you take the hotel bus for transport they will charge you 800 Baht.
It recently just changed from Sala Taley to Holiday Inn Resort. It is quite a useful information as some taxi or tuk tuk drivers still only know the old name.
The front desk staff is very attentive and try to accomodate you at every time. Had a massage by the pool at a reasonable price of 400 Baht for 1 hour. There are cheaper places in town, but it is a good price for an inhouse massage.
The main street runs in front of the hotel and you simply cross it to go to the public beach. Only very few hotels in Krabi/Ao Nang have their own secluded beach area. The beach itself is ok, what I liked was the fact that it was not crowded, no vendors or any beach chairs/umbrellas around.
Just across the hotel is a spot where you can rent long tail boats for a fixed tour with other people which is around 1800 to 2200 Baht/person depending on the tour you take while a private boat costs 5000 baht, which will last 5 to 6 hours, but you can tell your skipper where you want to go and he can find secluded beaches on the islands around. As a little tip, bring some drinks/snacks with you as most beaches are national park zones and they do not allow vendors there. They really take good care of these places and gladly did not repeat the mistakes they made with Pattaya or Phuket.
Now the points that I disliked where the room cleanliness and the breakfast. The breakfast is just not comparable to Asian standards and specially for a Holiday Inn it should be way better. It had 4 fruits, yoghurt, cereals, hot items such as sausages, beans, tomatoes and potatoes as well as fried rice and chicken. They also prepare eggs to order and have two soups. While compared to other Holiday Inn hotels here in Thailand, this is nothing.
The rooms on first sight look good, but they are not maintained well. The bathroom and specially the toilet was not properly cleaned. As the minibar list they used old arrival lists with guest names and arrival dates on it. While I am reusing paper as well, it is only for internal purpose and such paper should not be used for minibar lists.
Because I was paying quite a high rate of 3000 baht per night and considering all the flaws, I rate this hotel experience only average.

My boyfriend and I had one night at this exellent hotel. We came from Phuket and needed one night before going to Krabi airport. Got upgrated to a room with pool-access. Pool is great and so are the room. Hotel is located 10 min walk from the busy beach streetlife, and 10 min in tuk-tuk from the habour.

The hotel is on the beach side but I street runs in front off the hotel. The staff is really really friendly and will do anuthing they can. The rooms are beautiful and super clean. All rooms have a view on the swimming pool and you also can see the sea. the room has everything, minibar, roomservice, free water, perfect beds, airco, shower cap, a lot off towels, shower, bath, safe,... The food is really good and I know because I've been travelling in Thaland for 3 months now. The room is one of the most beautiful I have ever stayed in and it's the staff that really makes the difference! The hotel is not to big and is very cosy.
