“Good quiet location, great service, but...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

It's hard to find a decent hotel in the Ao Nang beach area, otherwise you'll have to choose a far-from-center hotel or travel up north to luxury hotel in a dead areas.
But there are a few (3)... Ao Nang Paradise Resort & Longstay is one.
we took the best room there - named "MT", which is large, almost detached from others, right on the pool, large private balcony and facing the magnificent lime mountain and swamp.

The area is very quiet and away from the street and 10 min. walk to the beach and noisy area.

The hotel looks great and the stuff is above all expectation! Very nice people that are willing to help all day and night.

The hotel and pool are clean and maintained on daily basis.
breakfast is adequate.
Kettle in the room, large TV screen, a bit hard mattress.

The only bad point is the lack of hot water... Yes - no hot water in the bathroom sink and a fast-warming electric device in the shower, which is not enough. the stuff was willing to replace a room but it seems all rooms are alike in this issue.

Advice for the management: Use a central solar-assisted hot water system (you do have lot of sun) - that will cost you much less the hungry, inefficient heaters in the shower, and connect hot water also for the sink.

This hotel is recommended as for location, quietness, great service and price, despite the above issue!

Room Tip: Room "MT" is the best, though it's a the farest from the street, down the slope and ne...

Our son introduced us to ao nang paradise, and I must say I was sceptical, but on our arrival, the staff were very efficient and lovey, the rooms were not large but very comfortable (A2)u had everything u needed, the bed firm but ok ( slept on worse). Ao nang paradise is not in the hub of things, but there are bars around you, so it is quiet ( just what we like) , but yet only a 10 min walk to the beach and all the main night life area. Value for money.. I would have no hesitation staying at ao nang paradise when I return....

I booked on last minute, absolutelly no suprise everything as per Tripadvisor comments, value for money in central location,with good service etc.. I would give excellent rating to this resort , but there was one negative particularly as we were there in rainy season.
This resort is not handicapped , elderly and strolers friendly , long walk , various levels and steps , ramps no handrails and change of surfaces which tend to be slipery , but if you are young no worries , it looks very trendy. .
If you want really enjoy this resort go after rooms in new addition with prefix H.

This is a good hotel in a convenient location. Best features include helpful staff who provide good advice about tours, services and attractions. We had a spacious and clean room (we stayed in h3). Breakfast is included and is sufficient. On the negative side our room did not have screens so mosquitos were a problem and unfortunately we had a noisy and particularly smelly air conditioner. Overall this is a good hotel in this price range. Ao nang is fun place to spend a couple of nights. Don't miss a speed boat trip to phi phi island and a visit to Railway beach.

Before we came to this resort there was an article in the paper about a young couple getting “machete raped” just down the road. I don’t know what “machete raped” is but it sounds horrific.

Thankfully, on arrival, Ao nang couldn’t seem like any more of a tourist friendly destination and Aonang paradise resort feels like one of the safest hotels available with security guards at the main entrance and a large and bright 24 hour reception. The rooms are very cute, tastefully decorated with an ample sized bathroom. The only negative is that the bed, whilst huge, is like sleeping on a slab of brick. Even when I’d had a few drinks in the evening I was tossing and turning trying to find some sort of comfort!

There is a small and stylish pool area which has a fantastic view over mangroves and limestone cliffs. A really good photo opp! There is a small bar and restaurant which I had lunch in one day and a few drinks over my stay. Noone else seems to use the restaurant so the atmos is stale.

Regardless of the slightly weak atmosphere– just outside your hotel there is a bustling town full of restaurants, bars and clubs, and there is plenty of opportunity for snorkling, diving and kayaking day trips. So you can go and find your own fun!! Just don’t let those machete rapists get you!

We stayed in the "Superior" room for 2 nights in the month of December. The hotel is easily accessible from the main road and is about 15 minutes walk from the beach.During your stay you will feel like you are in nature's lap with plenty of plants and tress all around you. While on the entrance of the resort you have the lively street of Krabi town, on the back side of the resort (near the pool) you have the breath taking view of a huge cliff.

The rooms were fairly sized, clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable. All amenities (safe, towels, slippers, umbrella, etc) mentioned in their website were provided. The breakfast was complimentary but quite basic.However there are lot of eating options when you walk down the road from the resort to the beach.

They also have complimentary WiFi with decent speed and an additional room with 2 computers. We found the hotel staff to be very friendly and are thankful for their hospitality.

Would love to go back to Krabi sometime and stay in the resort once again.

The rooms are fairly large, the bed is comfortable, and the air conditioning works! The bathroom had a weird sewage-like smell sometimes, but it seemed to go away quickly. I wasn't a fan of the large frosted window with no curtain in the room. Since the sun always shined through in the morning, sleeping in was not an option. The breakfast was ok and it was a bonus that you could chose how you wanted your eggs cooked. The staff was very nice and held our luggage since our flight was in the evening. The cliff in the back is gorgeous, but the area near the pool has many mosquitoes so beware. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk to the beach and near many restaurants. Try Massaman restaurant nearby for a very good meal, very different from the tourist traps that you pass walking towards the beach.
