We arrived at Rich Resort a couple of hours early and thought they may let us in our room early but unfortunately we weren't able to. Whether this was due to it not having been cleaned yet I don't know but it would have been a nice touch to let us in early if possible. When we could get in our room we were told that we had been upgraded to a superior fan room because there was a problem with our room. Great, but then we realised it was room 101 right at the front by reception. In actual fact it wasn't very noisy at all but the only downside was we had no balcony so it was hard to dry stuff. The room was big and we had a tele and a fridge which was good. The hotel is 30 seconds from the beach and you get free sun beds too. We did think there would be a little more going on in the swing bar as it was dead most nights but the beach party is worth popping in for if you are there on a Monday or a Friday. The only negatives were the towels smelt very strongly of damp. Even though they were changed everyday they smelt really badly! Secondly the Internet cost is ridiculous. Most hostels and hotels offer wifi for free in all rooms but it was 40baht for 20 mins! It is free in the swing bar but it would be good to have it for free in the rooms as well. Overall an ok stay and a very good location to the beach.
