“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

I loved this place, it has been by far the nicest place we've stayed so far in South East Asia and one of the cheapest!
The room was gorgeous, modern, chic, really clean and comfortable. It was just like a 4* European hotel room! In fact, the decor was probably nicer than most European hotels!
The beds were super comfy, air con worked well, mini fridges with free water and a flat screen tv (although not many English tv channels). Bathroom was clean, hot shower, clean, soft towels - I really have no complaints!
We expected to be further out than we were, there are bars and restaurants immediately outside the entrance and the beach is a pleasant & easy 10min walk.
The massage salon downstairs is upmarket, definitely nothing to be concerned about. You get to your room via the salon, that closes at midnight but a security guard is on hand to let you in if you're out later.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, it really was excellent value for money and I'm generally hard to please!

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

We orginally planned to stay one night as we made our way arounf the coast. Ended up over a week. Place is clean and staff are friendly. You are upstairs from a classy massage palour and next to a 711. 100 metres is the beach and shops, restaurants and bars are within walking distance. We had a balcony, tv, safe, air con, wifi, kettle with coffee refills, 2 bottles of water each day, fresh towels and linen.

Couldnt fault this place at all.

Room Tip: Go to the back if you want quiet from the road but you wont have a balcony towatch sunset. There isn...
