Arriving at Honey Cottages late on a tuesday night by taxi i was filled with a sense of "What have we got ourselves into".The lane was dark,the front of the resort lifeless,no atmosphere.
Checking in was hassle free,the receptionist most helpful and courteous,with a complementary liquer.We were at our rooms within 5 minutes.
Well,i was really un-impressed with the standard room.Front doors did'nt close properly,shower and toilet(all one) simply not suitable,in room safe not secure,2 coat hangers(i was here for 10 days).The room was clean but dated,the location not great.My friend Daniel in the adjoining room had the same concerns as i had.We both agreed to ask for an up-grade which was no trouble at all to the lady at reception.For an extra five thousand Baht we were both up-graded to a Superior room and what a difference.It felt like a resort room,roomy, comfortable and spotless,with t.v.,tea and coffee provided,a nice big shower room with toilet.And the location of the rooms were fantastic,room 25 for me,room 28 for Daniel.We were both,literally,20 metres from the beach,30 metres from the pool and bar.Simply Wonderful.
The bar staff were fantastic,all you would wish for while on holiday,professional,courteous,most helpful,attentive and very good humoured.Thanks to Mam,Boom Boom,New and Boom,you made our stay memorable.Your kindness will forever be remembered.
The beach is rocky in places,very safe,with para-gliding,jet ski's and banana boats.Several little barbaque stalls serving prawn,sausage,spring rolls,chicken plus an abundance of fruit are quite delicious.
As an over-all guide i would say the following.
2-Staff are excellent
3-house keeping staff,very attentive
4-Gardens are well maintained
5-rooms(for the price).
6-Swimming pool and Bar area(looking onto the beach)
7-Wont get better Bar staff Anywhere.
1-The Lane to the resort is quite dark.
2-The bar prices are quite expensive
The owner and Manager of the resort(whose names sadly escape me)were very courteous,coming to speak to us every day,a nice personal touch,making sure everything was to our satisfaction.You dont(at least i have'nt)get that everywhere.
