Stayed here for 4 days. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. Room and bathroom are clean, and they clean the room everyday. Location is very good if you rent a scooter. The only downside is that outside of my room is a some kind of water pump, so it's loud almost 24 hours.

Pretty good room, with a comfortable bed and clean toilette. In the night the ONLY thing you can hear is the sound of the animals outside. Housekeeping staff is very helpful and respectful and always ready to satisfy all your needs. Motorbike renting service available at the desk and the price is very cheap. Anyway, the kiosk beside the pool... More

Hotel facilities and location were perfect; the wonderful beaches of Ni Harn, Ni Ya, Rawai, Kata and Karon just a few minutes away by scooter; lots of nice restaurants and bars, a gym, shops and a local market nearby. Cozy bungalow and lovely swimming pool in a relaxing environment.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week and it was perfect. The staff is so accommodating, making reservations for us and driving us everywhere for cheaper than any taxi. The resort is so small and cute but well maintained. Directly across the street is a great restaurant, a laundromat, a massage parlor, and a little store- all you... More
