We stayed at the KIB in november 2011. Had a poolaccessvilla, which was great with direct access to pool. Poolvilla itself is good choice. Hotel halffull with mainly Swedish tourists. Staff are friendly but speak basic English, had dinner twice in restaurant, ok but not spectacular. Buffet breakfast is a disappointment and pretty basic. Location makes up for a lot. Would advise renting a scooter (costs just Baht 250,= per day) and visit 2-3 good local restaurants by the pier (approx. 5 mins drive by scooter). Food is better, cheaper and more variety.
Hotel is certainly not **** , really no more than ***and the price they charge for a room is really way too high for what you get. We were lucky that we had 50% discount as we booked really early, but would be very dissapointed if we paid the normal rate applicable. This hotel needs a good European manager, to upgrade themselves and renovation here and there would also be an asset. Would not visit this hotel again and do not recommend as it is currently. Be aware, the beachfront villa's are sold as such but do not have beachfront views!
