Chaba is a decent 3 star hotel, but not really a resort. First the good aspects: the pool is pretty nice, and the hotel is very clean. Nothing fancy, but you can't fault the housekeeping staffs for anything .
I didn't expect anything very large for the room, and it is quite small. I was in room 122, and it looked out on the tin roof of the restaurant of the hotel and the street. The shower left a lot to be desired, very little water pressure, and the temperature alternated between scalding and freezing. Much of the water just dripped down the wall.
The bed was hard, but not abnormally so. The pillows are a little hard as well. The air con basically was blasting all the time. I tried to turn it down, but it was still a lot of cold air blowing on the bed. I turned it off for a while, but it got too hot. I ended up just putting a fleece sweater over the blanket.
On the location, it is a 10 minute walk along an open sewer to the beach. Not beach front, but not too far too get to the beach. To be honest, i found thge pool a better experience than the beach anyway.Kata itself is fine, but nothing extraordinary to do. But you can find some nice day trips. A few acceptable restaurants, lots of massage parlors, abs junk shops. It isn't Patong, but that is probably a good thing.
If you want real quiet, you'll need to look elsewhere. On Monday night, as I was trying to go to sleep before my scuba diving trip the next day, a supposedly professional karaoke singer was butchering some 80s classics. It was blasting right beneath my window at 2300 to a crowd of literally nobody.
The TV was fuzzy, but decent channels. Put the whole package together and you basically get what you pay for, but no more.
