When paying for cheap rooms, I dont expect much but for paying 1000 baht a night, even in a tourist area, this is a reasonble price to expect a friendly servive and a clean room. That we did not recieve. The reception staff were very rude when we were checking in. To then go into our room where our aircon... More

The hotel was perfectly adequate for people on a budget with low expectations, I'm not usually one to complain, but our hotel room was filthy and the toilet did not flush. The pool was good. The restaurant was nice and staff were friendly. On balance I would recommend that people pay slightly more to stay at a nicer resort, but... More

Not too badly priced. Has AC but no WiFi, small fridge was a bonus. We found out the people in the room next to us were paying less than us, no idea why we'd get charged differently. Room was neat and clean, no damage anywhere.

Diamond Cave is one of the more affordable places in Railay. Nice clean rooms with air conditioning. You will occasionally wake up to monkeys on the porch of your hut smashing the ash tray and just being unruly, but hey, this is Thailand, get used to it.

We stayed in one of the bungalows. The room was nice and clean. The pool was amazing and added a cool escape from the heat. Great drink specials at the restaurant. All you can eat breakfast buffet at the front desk area was delicious.

I was torn between giving Diamond cave Resort a rating of 'average' or 'poor' but actually it's not that bad, it has great potential but there is a lot of space for improvement. Having stayed at Railay for 3 days at a different hotel, my boyfriend & I decided to extend our stay and stay at a different hotel, we... More

Dirty rooms (gross bathroom, water damage all over ceiling, BUGS IN THE BED), no wifi in the rooms, extremely rude and unhelpful staff. There are cleaner, nicer places with more courteous staff for cheaper a stone's throw away; don't waste your money on this dump.

This was undoubtedly the worst hotel we've ever stayed at. The lady at the front desk was extremely rude when we arrived, as if she didn't want us staying at the resort at all. The room was dirty, there was rat poop by the mirror in the bathroom, and as other posts have mentioned, saying the furniture was outdated is... More

This hotel is in a beautiful setting at the base of the mountains, it's stunning. However the hotel itself is very dated, the pool and the setting are the only things I can speak positively about. On arrival, we were treated poorly and the staff didn't care to help us at all. When we couldn't figure out how to lock... More

Room had cockroaches, shower didn't work right. They said when we first agreed to stay that breakfast would be included then made us pay more later. After staying six days at a very expensive rate, more than others were paying. We decided to move to a different resort. The management was so rude that it really put a damper are... More
