It seems like this place was constantly trying to squeeze as much money as possible out of their guests. From the second we got there, this was the pattern.
We asked if they had a room available they said they only had one which was sea view and more expensive. When we were ready to walk, suddenly a more standard room became available, 1000 baht cheaper.
They charge for WiFi which doesn't even work well. No other hotel of the 6 we stayed in Thailand did this.
We needed help changing our flight. They charged us 15 baht a MINUTE. At the Bangkok hotel, the charge was 10 baht per CALL!
Lastly, we needed an early morning private ride to Krabi airport. They wanted 2500 baht, simply walk outside, talk to a cab driver and negotiate a better price of about 1800 baht.
The rooms and surroundings are nice, but then again so are the many other places in the same area.
This place might be OK for families who don't mind spending thoughtlessly, but would not recommend for budget conscious travelers or young couples who don't want to feel taken advantage of.
