I did lots of research on places to stay in Thailand during our 4 week trip. All of the pics I made were good except for this one. Based on the other reviews and the website, I thought this would be our best option for the size of our group and location. I was wrong. My wife almost packed up and left when we arrived. The rooms are very run down and don't have any amenities at all. If this was a hotel in the U.S., it would rent out at under $50 per night. Since we had prepaid, this wasn't an option. Especially since we checked in at midnight. Our expectations were very high and we were excited when we arrived. That changed very quickly. Nadine was nice and helpful, and was the brightest part of the stay. The pictures are not representative of what you will expect.
You aren't very close to the beach. It is a good 20 minute walk and you don't want to be walking through that area at night as it is not well lit and is a borderline area. You have to take a taxi, which are usually readily available.
This was the first place we stayed during our trip and it got better from there.
If it was a $50 per night place, then I might have been more favorable in my review as my expectations would have been less.
