I've written 6 to 8 reviews on our trip to Thailand and this is my first bad one. We're not needy and we don't need much but we were disappointed with our stay at Al's Hut.
Service - the lady at the front desk was reasonably helpful but that was it. The bar staff, cleaners, gardeners etc were pretty useless. After cleaning the room next door the staff sat outside their door (and ours as they were connected) and had a chat. Strange. When we walked past and I said hello, we got no response.
Food - we only had breakfast here and it was ordinary.
Room - our mattress was like a rock, beds are firm in Thailand but this was ridiculous. The A/C remote wouldn't work so it was arctic or nothing. The sheets and pillows were covered in stains and the shower fixtures looked like an afterthought.
The pool is right on the beach and quite nice, but the resort is 2 doors down from a massive beach club called the Ark Bar that plays deafening euro dance all day. Oh and if you've never been to Chaweng the planes take off over your head every hour or so.
We only stayed here one night and Al's Hut was chosen by our Travel agent... perhaps compared to other places right in Chaweng beach this is good value, but that I can't say.
Personally im not sure why you'd want to stay in Chaweng anyway! Bophut/The Fishermans Village is on the other side of the Island 2km away, with good access to everything but much nicer and quieter.
We stayed on Koh Phangan in a room with a bed, bathroom and a fan, nothing else and loved it. It was simple, cheap and comfortable, exactly what a budget place should be and exactly what this isn't!
