From the minute we arrived we could not have been made more welcome by the lovely family who had just taken over this hotel. They carried our luggage to reception and the check in was quick and painless.
The family had just taken over the hotel and were in the process of renovating all the rooms and communal areas so in some places it did look a bit run down. There were signs of damp places on the wall in our room BUT
It was a wonderful place to stay. The room was large with a balcony overlooking the sea, albeit through some trees. The bed linen was very clean and changed daily. Within minutes of us getting there they brought us a brand new cable box and set it up for us so we had lots of channels to choose from. There was tea/coffee facilities replenished daily. Lots of hot water. Free WiFi in the communal areas.
The hotel itself is not in the main centre of Haad Rin. To get to the main part of town we walked down the beach most days which took about 15 minutes for a slow comfortable stroll. You could walk down the main road but we decided not to bother as it was quite windy and the cars/bikes did go rather fast.
Apart from the lovely people who ran the hotel there were 2 outstanding things which made our stay there so amazing.
The food! We ate there every evening and without exception the food was wonderful. Everything was tasty, well presented, hot and really cheap!
The other thing that makes this hotel special is the beach. Because of how it is situated away from the town and one of the last places on that part of the beach it was almost like having your own private beach. It was situated right on the sand, no roads to cross or anything. the staff kept the sand immaculate, there were free sun beds and towels and it was deserted! The sea was warm, clean and safe to swim in. We did not have any children with us but i would have been quite happy for my own children to have played in the water. It was picture postcard perfect!
On the last day they offered us a free ride back into town to the ferry port, not something we had ever had before and much appreciated.
If you are looking for peace and quiet in nice surroundings with nice people looking out for you this is the place to stay.
