Casa e Mare is in a handy location 500m from Kata Beach on Kok tanod Road. The hotel has 5 floors and 20 rooms. You would feel more at home here being Italian but the family owned business of Eddy, Lorella and son Michael will go out of their way to help you. Located in a quieter area in Kata its right next door to a 24 hour Family Mart and 7 Eleven is just up the road. Good restaurants within close walking distance are Kitchen Kata, Ragualetta and Red Chair. A laundry facility is diagonally opposite the Hotel and several massage places are within close walking distance.
First impressions of the room were how clean and nicely presented it was, first ever hotel in Thailand - I was impressed. Wifi in the room was poor to good. The safety deposit box to my room was bolted by two screws to a wooden cupboard shelf – I didn’t use it. I found another hiding place for my valuables and took my friends advice to leave 20THB on the pillow with a ‘thank you’ note. The room maids were excellent anyway and respectful of belongings.
Some niggles...the hot water system in the shower (see photo) is aging and water lukewarm...not a good hot shower. It took me a while to work out how to close the Thai curtains with their wooden handles and the bed is very firm but I found these to be the norm in the four Thai hotels I stayed in. All in all I enjoyed my stay here and recommend it. Thank you Eddie, Lorella and Michael for your hospitality.
