Without too much information on the Seashore Beach Cottage, we took our chances. The website looks really nice, claiming that everybody can have a holiday at their resort, living the life of a millionair. Ok.....I fell for that maybe a bit too easy.
When we entered the cottage, after carrying up our overpacked samsonite (28 kg) the 112 steps to the cottage on my own, we were a bit dissappointed by the interior (or lack of it). The shower was combined with the toilet in the showercabin, and the cottage design was "modest". I was especially dissappointed by the fact that it would not take that much money or time to make the interior look more attractive. I am afraid that this resort is missing a qualified and caring management.
The staff was friendly, but not helpfull at all and also not really concerned with the wellbeing of their guests. Playing the stereo loud for their own entertainment during early breakfast and suggesting to take a taxi (4000 baht) to Krabi instead of the cheap ferry.
Positive aspects is how the resort is situated and the seaview from the cottages.
A local taxi driver told us that the resort was hit with the tsunami and just reopened with a new management.
