Not sure what it was about this place but from when from when we arrived and it taking 10 mins to work out they didn't take Amex it seemed strange. I asked for a second room key so we had one each however they require a 500 baht deposit which I found odd! Room is pretty good for price however... More

Stopped here on our first night and were upgraded to the villas which was a nice surprise. Large rooms with outdoor shower and huge bath/spa tub were a nice touch. Older resort that looks as if it is getting some needed maintenance in the off season

We have just returned from Dvaree Mai Chao after one week under pouring rain, it is monsoon season. The hotel was the only thing that made the stay very nice! we were a little worried after having read some of the negative reviews, for us this hotel has been very good experience, the rooms were very clean and well attended,...

If you are looking for a quiet place, far from perpetual touristic attractions on the Beach , this could have been the one. Facilities are ready (gym, restaurant, bar... Except nobody is there and the whole thing looks almost abandoned). If the staff wasn't SO inefficient, so unable to understand or speak a word of English, if the breakfast wasn't... More

Not too far from airport by the beach. Room is a bit old. Furniture&wall needed to be clean. Room is so humid, when you sleep you can feel that yourself is sticky and wet. Quality of food from room service is bad. Seafood fried rice was oily with 2 prawns and 2 squid. Taste Sucks with 1 hour waiting.

We booked through TripAdvisor for our stay, we booked 2 nights in a deluxe pool view room at £90 and I requested to be on a high floor. To sum up I don't think I would stay here again. We took a taxi from a port near Phuket town and it was 800bht and about 45 mins - 1 hour.... More

This hotel is in total disrepair. Our room had cracked walls. Broken dangerous railing on the balcony. The whole resort is in need of painting. The swimming pool is green with algae. With broken pool light with exposed wires on the top deck of the pool. The elevator didn't work in building #2. So you had to climb to the... More

Wow. This hotel does not warrant its price or rating. The room was clean. The pools and the setting are great. Good ends there. The safe didn't work, the door wouldn't lock reliably, the non.smoking room reeked of smoke and the end tables had cigarette burns. The restaurant staff was useless, if you could find them during lunch and dinner... More
