Not really sure where to start but i did promise my self i would send in this review to hopefully help others.
This hotel was a night mare !!
The only good thing going for it was the location. Location being only 3-4 minutes to a great sandy beach and seconds to bars and restaurants.
When we arrived to our surprise the room was actually ready, not bad, quite small but it had everything such as TV, Mini bar etc.
First we had no hangers to put our clothes, then we realised only one plug socket actually worked. I hated to ask and make a seen but for sure we needed hangers. Within 2 minutes the door knocked and arrived TWO hangers !! So out we went for a walk, when we arrived we had no electricty, that was going to be fixed in 30 minutes which became 2 hours. So as soon as it came on, jumped straight in the shower which was freezing, not only was i having a freezing cold shower but the water was actually coming through the bathroom ceiling onto me and heading towards the light !! Off to reception again but all they seem to do is scratch there head and insist its not a problem !! By this time i had had enough so went out for beer !!
The next morning off to the inclusive breakfast which consisted of curry with rice and ants or, stir fry with ants, or steamed rice with mixed veg and ants, fried cauli ,egg fried rice and ants or toast with jam and plenty of ants !!!
Pool towels stained and full of holes were offered free of charge !!
I asked at reception if there was any chance of having a hot shower tonight, and having the sockets fixed, yes yes madam. That evening we had a hot shower alright, it almost burnt us and the boiler almost came through the ceiling ! This was ridiculous and very dangerous. So eventually they decided to move us to another room.
The same happened there although we had an army full of ants in the bathroom to join us and the light bulbs blew !!
The staff were not nice at all, apart from one waiter who was on in the mornings, the rest, forget it, they don,t even no how to smile !
Just to top it all off we had a COMPULSORY DINNER AT 40 POUND EACH to pay for news years eve..............believe me the dinner was no better than the breakfast !
This was the most expensive hotel we stayed in during or travelling in Thailand and the worst, never again, please DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE !!
