Large hotel by the side of the sea with extensive well laid out grounds and nice pools. The facilities are excellent and the staff are particularly good and helpful. But our room was definitely showing signs of being worn out with stains, doors hanging off, towel rail loose, etc. In short the management needs to invest in bringing the rooms...

Dear Moaby, Thank you for your review. I am very pleased to share that we are indeed going to renovate our rooms. The first (mockup) room has been done and I would have been happy to show you the result of our efforts. We are planning to spread the renovation out over a period as we will be refreshing the...

We stayed in private villa with our own pool. This was the best option - the beach ones were where everyone hung out, and the public pool was so hot, the water was 35C plus so it was nice to have our own. But it did go green by the end of our stay, which sucked. The food was ok...

Dear laurabeth131_13, Thank you for your review. Our Talay Thong restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and apart from the a la carte menu, a mini buffet with a different theme is served every day.

Nice resort set on 2 sides of a small road. The beach side which is perfect for families as lots going on and the top side which is quieter and some say a bit out of the way. This resort needs a major revamp as the rooms are dated and paintwork shabby. The outdoor shower is moukdy and filthy and...

Located at absolutely city center and basically on the beach. Not easy to beat. Needless to say, staff was service minded and I must give a five star rating to their breakfast that included everything from fresh fruit to omelette. Highly recommended.

This is the type of hotel, where guests reserve sunbeds by throwing towels on them, on their way to breakfast. If you are looking for a big hotel with variety of facilities for small kids, look no further. If you are looking for Thai hospitality and charm, keep looking. We had a hut with a private pool. Pretty, but worn...

We arrived at the hotel in the afternoon after 3 busy, crazy days in Bangkok and it was a perfect, relaxing break from the start. We had read reviews prior to booking and decided on a ocean facing room- we had read that the 3rd floor rooms had the best sea views as there are trees between the rooms and...

“we were in the room with numbers 1700- 1750. This rooms are new and good equipped. This area is near the main road. Negative is that it is a long way to beach, reception and breakfast area. Shuttles will take you to this areas. Order will be executed very quick. We heard that some rooms in the main area will be restructured. Our tip is to ask for information.”
