Amphawa is worth a stopover, especially during the week-end so you can see a real floating market and at the same time take advantage of a boat tour on the river to see fireflies. If you have not seen fireflies before, this is the place to do it. The website indeed gives a better impression of the hotel than the reality. Previous comment about the fact that there are local groups is correct, but this is not definitely disturbing. If you go there I would recommend that you choose the deluxe Thai style room, they are quite nice, even though pricy. In the morning at 08:00 hrs you are invited to do offerings to the monks by the river, which is nice. The riverfront part of the hotel is not very large, which is a pitty, and the restaurant lacks a little style. As such on our overnight there we decided to go and eat at the market. The hotel overall is ok, but would do with some attention to details, especially with tydiness of meeting facilities. Breakfast is OK, but do not expect a western 4-5 star set-up like in internationally managed hotels in Bangkok or Hua Hin.
Would probably stay again if I wanted to show the floating market to friends.More
