“Quiet hotel with spacious rooms and great pool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

There are 3 different resorts - Garden,Seaview and Courtyard.We stayed in Fanari courtyard in a beautiful and very spacious room.We had a balcony which was overlooking the pool.The hotel is quiet and comfortable!The price was great and it was not far from the beach.We exspecially enjoyed the pool!
Breakfast was good but can probably be a little monotonous if you are staying longer than 5 days!Staff was always eager to help!

Very good hotel with a perfect location. The wifi was so so, and did only work for about half our stay, but we used the free wifi on the beach bar (about three min walking from the hotel) were we spend our days. The location is perfect and it is quiet and nice during the night time. Also, the breakfast buffet is superb! Best one of the 6 different hotels we tried during our trip.

Room Tip: We heard from some other guests at the hotel that the rooms with pool front or the bungalows were to...

Our second time at Fanari- just as good as our previous stay. We had adjoining bungalows in the courtyard area which we think is less crowded and overlooked than the main part of the hotel. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with efficient ac, fridge, good bathroom and private terrace. Breakfast ok- didn't have any other meals there as there are so many more appealing options.
Staff welcoming and helpful.
Small but clean and pretty quiet pool.
Hope to return!

We enjoyed our week at Fanari (seafront), although it was a big stretch for the budget. The room (a family apartment) was fabulous - spacious and comfortable with two bathrooms (though these were a bit cramped) and a living area. Daily room cleaning was thorough and they were generous in supplying drinking water (unlike other hotels we've visited in Thailand). The breakfast buffet (included in room price) had a good selection. Other restaurant food was expensive (but the same as everywhere else in the area - I think there's some price fixing going on!) but very tasty. Staff were friendly, and the pool and beach were good for relaxing.

Me and my family booked the Fanari for a weeks stay! The staff was excellent, caring and friendly! Two pools, nice restaurant!

It was quite quit, but we were there in between low and highseason.
A few small things would be better, for ex... a waterheater, hairdryer, etc.. but now I´m just picky ;D

It would gladly recommend this hotell!

We visited Fanari in the beginning of November, so the Apollo guests had not yet filled up the place. Nice and quiet, sweet pool area if you are in to that. Fairly close to the beach and nightlife. Breakfast buffe was incredible, one of the best I've had included in a hotel. Best of all was the price compared to what we got. Would recommend if you are traveling before or after Apollo season, most likely transforms to a familly hotel with children crashing the pool etc once Apollo starts filling the rooms.

Room Tip: Bottom rooms are connected to the pool, which means you can open your balcony door and be in the poo...

Hotelis really good for this price! We paid 90 euro for 3 nights for 2 people with breakfast included! Received very nice bungalow which was only 2 meters away from the pool! Nice rooms ! No remarks at all!

Room Tip: Ask for the bungalows near to the pool !
