I found The Florist by searching on Trip Advisor and what a good choice! We stayed here 7 nights at the beginning of August and it was great. The hotel was clean and quiet, all the staff were friendly and it was literally 10 meters to the beach.
Firstly, for anyone concerned about the Thai rainy season, we didn't have one spot of rain in 2 wheels. Despite every weather forecast I looked at warning me of rain and thunder storms. Most days were blistering sunshine and perfect weather.
As for the staff in the hotel, they were all polite and friendly, however their English was very very poor, apart from the hotel manager. However, its not the end of the world and was something we got used to everywhere in Thailand. The location of the hotel is a bit off the beaten track with little to do in Maenam, but after all that was the reason we chose the hotel. It is a short taxi ride into Bophut which was much more built up with a great atmosphere and some lovely restaurants.
The beach was lovely by my standards, the sand wasn't white and the water wasn't crystal clear but it was still beautiful and I would criticise anybody for complaining about it. Chaweng did have a beautiful beach which is well worth a visit, as for the mental nightlife there, thats exactly what I was avoiding.
I thought the breakfast at the Florit was great, toast, bacon, juice and eggs cooked anyway. It did the job.
So overall, anybody considering The Florist Resort, I would highly recommend it, great value for money. Fond memories.
