We left the Ratana Apart hotel yesterday after spending around 10 days there. Firstly the good things. It was clean, modern, and around a ten minute walk to the beach. The pool is on the roof and is also quite nice. The main issue we had was that I'd looked for a hotel with a balcony so my wife and I could sit and have a beer in the evening, for this I paid to have a superior room. On opening the patio door I was mortified. It overlooks a shanty town and a man made river (which they pour sewage into) and it smelt terrible. We weren't able to use the balcony at all. This would be the case for all the rooms on this side of the hotel. The other side looks over the busy road. The breakfast was pretty basic which was fine. Our main issue was that every time we walked into reception no one even acknowledged us. A simple Sawadee or even a smile would have been nice!
At the end of the day, the things that were bad didn't spoil our stay and ultimately you get what you pay for.
