Confusion as to which review to believe as they are all so varied, either very good or very bad. I am a seasoned Thailand traveller and this hotel is typical of so many, yes it does need a little bit of work. But why the mixed reviews. It's down to the expectation of the guests, sure if you go looking for negative things you will find them. But for us we had no complaints as it delivered all we required. Clean room good breakfast and polite staff, well mostly. But from what we experienced most quests offered no basic manners like please and thank you. So my advise would be if you click your fingers and expect instant service you will be disappointed but for those who have a more relaxed approach you will enjoy your stay here as 85% of the staff are really friendly and the location is really good. As for eating, take the short walk to town and explore the various Thai restaurants, they all serve good food. The monkey bar has live music and there are a couple of other good bars, just be careful, don't go in the bars that only sell small beers as you will be ripped off, large beers are between 100 - 120 baht. Catch a taxi 150 baht to the moo moo Cabaret, they have a few bars near by that have live music that starts about 10 pm. Visit the cabaret for a different night out. Khao had a relaxed feel and is very enjoyable. The only slight negative for us were the Chinese guests, their manners were a little challenging. They will wake you up in the morning being very loud and they do not queue, while you wait in turn for you particular choice of breakfast they will go straight to the front, this had to be pointed out to one or two of them. But don't let this put you off visiting here. You will find it difficult to find ladies of the night looking for business and hawkers on the beaches are rare, also you can see the great beach as sun beds are not allowed on the sand so more good reasons to visit khao lak.
