We just spent 4 nights here, and everything was brilliant. We got upgraded to the premium sea front villa as the restaurant was undergoing renovations, (not sure why we got this bonus, but it was the 1st time we ever got a free upgrade so we were rapt), I am sure we would have been just as happy in the room we booked. It's located at the quite end of Chaweng beach, and it only takes 10 -15 mins to walk into the main town area (some people have said it was too far out but we didn't have any problems with the location at all, a nice walk before and after dinner helps work off all those extra cocktail calories) it was nice and quite for sleeping and relaxing. While it is ocean frontage there is only a tiny beach at low tide, but if you chuck your belongings in a dry bag you can walk or swim around the corner to have lunch on the main beach, the sea never gets higher than chest height, this was a 1st for us, we have never swum to the pub in our lives and we loved it!! The room was spotless, with everything you need, the staff were very friendly and helpful, we booked a scooter rental through the front desk (knowing full well it was 50 Baht more than on the street, but with the scam stories you hear we were happy to pay a little extra for less hassles), and the front desk organized our transfers back to Krabi (which worked out wonderfully). Breakfast had a variety of off the menu choices all of which were fine and the mini bar was reasonably priced. We never got charged for wifi, it was a little patchy from our room but if you went to the reception area it was fine ( I have been charged for wifi in other hotels and had to sit in the hallway under the signal and still got worse reception than here) the dogs were not an issue for us at all, they were all friendly and only barked at you of a night when you approached (just doing their job), but not in any sort of threatening way. The renovations were no issue at all for us ( you have to do them sometime, and low season is the obvious choice), I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel, it was just lovely.
