We were lied to by the owner and would therefore not recommend this hotel as it put a dampener on our whole experience.
We inquired about travel to Kuala Lumper and the owner told us we could take a minibus direct, it would get there the same day, there would be no bus changes or stop offs. Having checked Google Maps to ensure this route was feasible (it could be driven in approx 9 hours) we clarified with the owner that there would be no overnight journey and would take only 1 bus which he confirmed was correct. This was all untrue and we ended up travelling for 22 hours, swapping buses 3 times with numerous stops in different towns. We felt very hurt by the owner's untrue advice. If he had been honest with us the journey may not have been as bad, or we would have caught a plane instead.
About the hotel itself, the room was ok but very basic for the price paid as it was quite damp smelling. The wifi signal was very poor. The pool at the nearby hotel was a lovely place to relax, as was the beach and the garden of Pada itself.
The restaurant next door does great local food but beware its very spicy!
It's such a shame that the deceitful owner ruined our relaxing time in Thailand.
