“One hour and we moved out.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2009

The idea of a beach hut on the sea sounds fantastic..... You cant go wrong....
It should be, you can.
the huts came in 300 - 400 or 500 Bt per night. If your on a budget then i may be being to critical.
I was prepared to spend more than £9 a night on my accommodation. Desperation saw us take the room which was dark, dirty and worn out.
the sheets didn't look to have been changed any time recently and the pillows i tried not to look at. one towel between two.... Sadly The principals work; with effort and money this place could be a jem but right now its nothing near.
We stayed to shower and change and find a new location. We did and found paradise. It was 4 times more expensive but in that variation i found both the WORST room I had ever been expected t sleep in and the best I ever have.... If you can afford more than 500bt a night go else where.

Management-Team-2010, Manager at Sunshine Divers Resort, responded to this review, February 11, 2010
Thank you for your comments, however, the team at Sunshine Divers offer quality service to our customers. We are aware that a frequent problem is the confusion of the bungalow resort / restaurant with the dive school - they are separate businesses with no affiliation.
We apologise to our divers for any inconvenience and be aware that we can secure other accommodation more to your liking on Chalok Baan Khao.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2009

nice place, hotel room was clean with hot water, good value for money i thought, the diver team were fantastic, excellent, really friendly people, however the restaurant there the staff were rude. The bar Eazy Bar was brilliant the staff there were truly fantastic, nice people, enjoyed my stay there just didn't like the restaurant staff.

I would of easily put the service here 5 star, as the diver and bar teams were great people but the restaurant service was shocking, well rude.

Not the best hut - dark and depressing. Sheets and pillows not that clean. Thai staff v unfriendly. We might have had a better experience if we were diving as most people were so found it a bit clicky. Not much of a beach to sunbathe on. Would recommend eating and drinking at the corner restaurant that overlooks the sea in front of Sunshine at the far end of the beach.
We are 2 x single 30something flashpackers girls...
