It is a good location, about a two minute walk from the beach with lots of bars, restaurants and massage places nearby. The room was clean and simple; not bad, but nothing special. The staff was polite but not very helpful with providing information about the area. Taxis are always outside and it is nearby more than one convenience stores.... More

Rooms were a good size with good air conditioning a kettle and a fridge and a very big bed. Breakfast was basic ,streaky bacon eggs beans toast... More

Not as clean as one could expect, breakfast rather poor, the staff friendly but skills in english were pretty poor. Good location and pretty good pool area with a small garden. Do not expect amazing balcony views.

Stayed at Whale resort for 2 nights. The place is average. The reception staff is rude when you have any questions, they just gave me blank look when i asked about wifi not working on my phone. Average hotel.

This is by far one of the worst hotels I've stayed in!! If you have ANY other options I recommend that you find a different hotel! The staff is rude and don't know the concept of service. No one in the entire hotel speaks more than four words of english! It is impossible to ask any questions, everything from breakfast... More

Booked a Deluxe room on the ground floor with pool access and it was very good.Breakfast was disappointing,however adequate to start the day.Excellent location with all amenities on the doorstep to this hotel.A very short walk to the beautiful Karon beach.Nice swimming pool and terrace area.We originally booked 4 nights and extended our stay to 7 nights.Very good value.

Cheap, cheerful and in a good location. Bathroom was clean and functional and the bed was comfy. Very close to local bars and restaurants. 15 - 20 drive to the Big Buddha. Staff friendly and even allowed us to use computer in the office because we lost our phones.

As per previous reviews the breakfast is basic at best. The sweet items are not covered and attract hornets. They are all over the jam and fruit. The room itself was ok but the housekeeping was terrible. No tea/coffee, no mini bar although there is a sign about the mini bar being at market prices, no soap. Had to scrub... More
