“Lovely hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Royal Nakara is a great place to stay in Ao Nang. It is great value for money. The hotel is modern and clean. The rooms are very large and comfortable and have everything you need. The location is slightly out of town but it is in walking dostance. Very friendly staff!

We booked the hotel based on tripadvisor review. we stayed for 4 nights. The staff was very helpful when we check-in. you can take a bus to the hotel for THB150 per person, but the bus makes several stop or you can take a taxi for THB 500 per taxi. We arrived around 9.30 am and hotel staff do all their possible to provide us our room earlier than the normal check-in time because my wife was sick, breakfast was substantial with western and thai style food, plenty to choose from the buffet.room very clean and recommend to anyone that like to stay a little away from the main street.
location of the hotel is not far from the beach.nice walk less than 10 minute to a beautiful beach. they have a lot of great restaurant and tourist shopping shops available along the street. local taxi is very reasonable. they set-up several booth that offers all kind of adventure trips, you can make a booking a day before you plan for the trip.
Very safe and enjoyable place to be.
We enjoyed our trip very much and think to come back next winter for a little longer.

Room Tip: very roomy and they provide all the amenities.

Stay 2 weeks in this hotel because it was such good value. Its a basic hotel in a quiet area of Aonang, about 10 -15 minutes from beaches and main strip. Rooms are clean and big by any standard. The hotel is family run and staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is basis but good. There is no restaurant or bar, only breakfast available. Wifi is ok.
Would stay here again.

Hotel looks good, rooms are big, restaurant has good food but the way to aonang center/beach is paved with trash and smell. maybe the hotel should have a free shuttle to center. No restaurant or bar available in the hotel after breakfast.

The rooms are cleaner and much bigger than we expected. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Two spoke very good English and the others tried very hard and if they couldn't understand would find someone who did.

The breakfast was good with a few options and omelettes made fresh. The pool area is very clean but small and enclosed. Not a good spot to hang out.

The shower was great with a huge head and good pressure. It's like being under a waterfall!!

It's a little out of the main strip which was lovely for a short walk during the day (maybe 5 mins onto the main street) but a bit worrying walking back late at night for two young girls. You could easily get a cheap tuk tuk back if you needed.

There isn't a lot around the area, two massage places and a few restaurants. You're better off heading into the main strip where you can get everything.

I stayed here for 5 nights during a visit to Ao Nang and found the place to be excellent. The rooms are very spacious and kept nice and clean. The bed is large and comfortable and the bathroom is nice with an excellent shower.

Breakfast was good and always had plenty of choice and the staff were really excellent. In fact I cannot say enough for how pleasant and helpful they were. 10/10.

Location is good, it takes about 10 minutes to walk to the main street in Ao Nang and from there you can walk an additional 10 minutes to Ao Nang beach or you can catch a tuktuk.

Great value for money and I would come back here again.

The only downside if any, was that the rooms could do with a slight spruce up, a touch of paint here and there. It is only once you stay a few nights that you start noticing these things, it certainly wouldnt put me off staying there again though.

Room Tip: We were in the ground floor bedroom and I didnt like that our balcony was caged in like a prison, so...

It is situated near the beach and has convenient stores within reach. The room we were given was generous in space and were amply clean.Service was courteous and warm! One note: Apparently, the items in the minibar are cheaper than what was sold outside.
