“Just average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

The resort seemed to be a 55 & older resort. It seemed as they were upgrading some of the resort, but we stated in a room straight out of 1985. The pool was really nice. We had a surprisingly delicious dinner one night at the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and attentive.

We stayed here on honeymoon, and the hotel went out of their way to make us enjoy our stay here. Our room was simply wonderful (beautifully decorated and had rose petals in the bath) and the breakfast was clean and delicious. The pool is great and the room service worked just fine. Location is a bit of a walk to the beach but along the way you can delve into all the curio shops. All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

One of the great things about Pakasai is the location. It is very easy walking to both Ao Nang Beach and Nopparathara Beach. We preferred the latter during the day and the first for night time strolls. Both are beautiful!
The resort has a wonderful garden and the rooms are very tastefully decorated. We absolutely loved it. Our room had a view of the garden and the pool, and we spent a lot of time just enjoying life on the lovely balcony. We also really loved the pool!
Just down the street there are plenty of restaurants, from street food (YUM!) to fancy dining.
If we go back to Ao Nang, we will undoubtedly stay at Pakasai again.

We stayed at Pakasai for 16 nights and had been really satisfied with everything... Nice big and clean rooms, really nice garden, nice restaturant with varied food for breakfast, really polite hotel staff... Hotel is not far away from the Ao Nang beach from where you can travel to all the islands with longtail boates...This was not our last stay at Pakasai!!!!

Room Tip: Superior room is really nice - we had been lucky with the choosen room

Last winter my family spent four nights here. At the time my children were three and one. The rooms were quite large, particularly the bathroom. What we loved was there was a small playground and playroom. My kids loved this! Yes, there are tons of stairs, but that is part of the adventure. The only downside is there were TONS of Mosquitos.

This resort has admirable environmental intentions. We had room 911 which was quiet and away from the street. Had a nice rainforest feel. Pool was nice with an acceptable view. Good food and great breakfasts all were priced fairly for in resort dining. Downside. Poor in room wifi. Very hard and uncomfortable strange bed. AC was noisy but effective. Overall if i was assured better bedding i would go back to this resort if it wasn't in Ao Nang.

Stayed for 10 nights recently. The place appeared somewhat more classy than expected: Stunning to look at, 24h reception+guard, nice and clean room (except for a quite sandy balcony) with superb bathroom.
The staff is nice and extremely professional (though, in some cases, with a sort of detached courtesy I find a bit awkward.)
Pool area doesn't interest me very much. Looks nice though. And it's good to know the 15-16 pool bar happy hour (90 bht, ordinarily, for a Singha is a bit ridiculous.) Could also use some tables with comfy chairs near the pool bar.
The breakfast buffet is excellent. There's a chef to do custom omelets and stuff if desired. Also did one dinner buffet ("Asian Delights", if memory serves.) For 300 bht, I thought it was everything one could wish. Good variety and high quality.
The location is fantastic. It's a short walk to Ao Nang beach or the somewhat more peaceful bigger Nopparat (which provides a very nice option if you like running.)
There's a small decent street-food market just down the "hill".
The resort atmosphere is fantastic. Has a mangrove-forest-ish feel and a fantastic soundtrack of birds and cicadas and frogs and dear knows what. One can get lucky and observe some incredibly nimble squirrels jumping around the tree tops. Very serene.
Only a few minor grievances: The smoking policy is very strict. Not even allowed on balconies, which I find a bit oppressive. The bar directly across from my room gets annoyingly noisy (tv +/ music) some parts of the day, which I found somewhat in contrast with the place in general (you're given a preachy pamphlet for better eco-tourism which, among many things, state that one shouldn't be noisy.)
Either way, all in all an excellent place to stay for a very decent price. Should love to return.
