So if you appreciate the English comedy Faulty Towers you may enjoy this place. Firstly the positives though; the rooms are large and the bathrooms outdoors and a tad quirky, the best feature is the swimming pool. If you are into swimming for fitness then it is big enough to swim a few decent lengths. The bad side is the lack of maintenance, the grounds look sad and not managed with long long grass. The outside shower is a joke as you get dirtier walking though the undergrowth to get from it to the pool. The main thing that lets the place down is the staff. We have been travelling S.E.A for almost a year and a half and the owner is the rudest person we have met. She agreed a price of 1,000bhat per night (including a breakfast but she refused to let us have an egg at that price). She said that the rooms should be 2,000bhat a night but I can not imagine anyone paying more than we paid it just is not worth it! The manager said the place was busy and that we just missed everyone because they got up early and went out, amazing that we didn;t see people for days on end, all other places in AONang were full and we needed a holiday from travelling so we just buttoned down the hatches and enjoyed the pool on our own. The manager blanked up pretty much for the whole of our 9night stay in the end, not one single smile did she give us. The rest of the staff were lazy, I don't like to use that word but they were. Husband ordered food one lunch time.... that was a saga..... another morning I asked if I could buy a pancake (instead of the dried bread and fruit...) I was told 'No'. The staff member walked off very loudly shouting at another member of staff in Thai - with the only English word being 'pancake' I am not paranoid but I think she may have been talking about my cheek for asking her to do some work and cook a pancake.... All in all if you want a swim and you are good at negotiating then 1,000 is the absolute max you should be paying for this place. The owner is so very rude (would like to say now that her daughter whom we saw when we first checked in was very very lovely and happy and smiley - but sadly we only saw her the once.....), the rest of the staff are emulating the owner and the 'resort' is tired and all a tad messy'.
