“Nice place but over priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We have stayed in a garden hut. It is modest, but well mantained and clean. Huts dont have refrigirator. The garden is gorgeous and very well mantained. Receptionist ladies are kind, especially Nuna. Restaurant for the breakfast is modest, modest hygiene and low quality of the food. Most staff are man and they are not too much kind and not speaking much english. Beach is nice, but as most places around don't expect crystal clear water. 7/11 is 5 minutes walk behind. As well as scooter rentals. They all want passport deposit. The bungalow is over priced, but this is already common in all tourist spots on all south islands.

Room Tip: Always check the room before taking it!

Stayed 7 nights in January and was upgraded twice; once to beach front hotel and second to family bungalow which is very nice also facing the beach.

Resort grounds are excellent and they ensure the weeds are cleared from the beach every morning. The beach Had Yao is a nice beach but once the tide rolls out it's not good for swimming. I rented a motor bike and bombed around the island and found some nice beaches to swim regardless of tide.

The staff were friendly and always smiling and ready to help.

My only complaint was the bathrooms in the bungalows seems to be dated and need to be upgraded.

After a previous bad experience we stumbled upon this Heavenly place and couldnt have been happier. All the staff are amazingly friendly and cant do enough to make you feel special and comfortable. We stayed in the most basic accommodation which was perfectly adequate and clean. Lovely gardens and swimming pool. As mentioned by others excellent breakfast and you cant beat the BBQ sat on the waters edge with yummy food and live music. We were even dancing on the beach!
I would recommend this resort to anyone whatever age group. Its great and I wish we'd had more time there.

Room Tip: Our room was most basic so no fridge.

We stayed just for 1 night here after being disappointed by another place we had booked just along the beach. The staff were so obliging, they even fitted mosquito nets for us just for the 1 night as we had been plagued by them in the 'other place'. The resort is very well kept and has beautiful grounds & pool and good breakfast. They have a great barbecue on the beach in the evening with live music. Everything was excellent including the price. I would definitely return and recommend to others.

Room Tip: garden rooms have aircon, but no fridge

Excellent resort! Wonderful swimming pool, nice beach.
Very good and extensive breakfast: pancakes, fresh fruit, toasts, different kinds of eggs (bacon, sausage), cornflakes, orange juice, milk, coffee.
We slept in garden hut (€25/night): excellent price!
In the evening you could choose between fish barbecue (barracuda, shark, shrimps,..) or à la carte. The fish was very fresh and tasty. (they have to serve rice and fish at same time!
You can have a cocktail drink between 5pm - 7pm (happy hour) with magnificent sunset view for 100Baht/cocktail. Cool cocktail barkeeper (mate).
We booked this after reading a lot of (disappointing) reviews, but were very happy with our holiday location.
The staff was very friendly (daily 'How do you do?'). The girls at the reception are not as friendly as the rest.

After a bad storm and stuck in Hadd Yao this place was our saviour! At silly o'clock we had to wake up the manager to check in and he was amazing,. He very kindly gave us a great room which was very comfy and had everything we needed. We woke up to a fantastic view, lovely pool, yummy breakfast and friendly staff who went out of their way to help us. It was more than we could have ever expected. If you want a place that you will enjoy, where you feel looked after, with great facilities then this is the place for you.

We had a very nice stay in this resort right on a beautiful clean beach. The bungalows were clean with good beds, safe, airco and fridge. Beautiful pool with good sunbeds. Every night barbecue on the beach with fresh fish. Very friendly staff and manager. We will definitely come back.
Greetings from the kiwi family.

Room Tip: The seaview bungalow is amazing to watch the sunset.
