We booked through a friend without having taken a lokk for ourselves. Thus, we could have avoided an unpleasant experience by researching a bit more beforehand. This being said, I can truly not recommend the Seaview Rainbow. First of all, we were supposed to get a different bungalow, but when we arrived and enquired, these were suddenly all reserved for long-term renters. We got one of the rooms in the back side of the resort. The rooms are very plain, and unpleasantly decoreated - I know that's not a hard criteria, but a bit of paint on the walls and a reading light next to the bed have never killed anyone either. Also, wardrobes are one of the great inventions of humanity since we were hunter/gatherers, so we DONT have to spread our things on the floor for 2 weeks. As a tip for the resort: Please get some! As a result we spent very little time in the room, and bed-time reading with harsh fluorescent light is simply not really my thing. The bathrooms are truly not nice, enough said. Also, please be aware that the bungalows dont have any kind of soundproofing, so you will live very closely to all activities your neighbours may undertake *cough, cough Generally speaking, the staff tried to be helpful, such as showing us on their phones they didnt have any WIFI either for 2 consecutive days and were in the same boat as us. But when we asked about checking out early, as we found a nicer alternative, we were politely informed that we could do so, but would not get any refund at all (again, if we had done our research properly, we could have known that). But the smirking smile, followed by a Melania-like "Is this really my problem?" by the general manager just felt unnecessary. The other patrons we saw, were mostly middle-aged germans having their shirtless breakfast-beer at 9am. But hey, they were not rude, at least. On a positive point, the beach is very close. So, to sum it up, if you're looking for a low-budget stay, and have literally zero aesthetic sensibility, this could be your place. But I would still recommend to look for another place.…
Okey, the beach is really good, watching sunset is really ok from the beach. But the bungalows are pretty basic. they only clean you if you ask it, and cockroaches sometimes occur. Every day playing music in beach bar until 12-24, which is sometimes disturbing.
Really could not fault this place, wonderful setting , beautiful beach and welcoming staff. Simple but clean accommodation . I can’t wait to return, the resort is well situated in proximity to the local town . Very quiet but safe and friendly.
I stayed in one of their long-term houses at the back of the property for a couple of months. I enjoyed my stay there though it was really hot. They have no AC and the fan is fixed on the wall (not the ceiling) pointing off the bed, so when sleeping you get really hot. This is especially important in April and May. Best to find a place with AC at this time of year otherwise you may find yourself dripping with sweat all day and night. The Thai food they serve is fantastic. I'd recommend the Pad Thai and Tom Yum. Some of the best I've ever had!
Traditional style bungalow, fan only room. Very basic. Staff very friendly, food and service were excellent. Only down on this was the cat fight in the middle of the night and then the dogs had their turn just after sunrise. I believe this is "normal" Nice beach, just around the corner is an unofficial nude beach and the Golden Rock.
