“wet holiday”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

WE have just come back from Krabi where we stayed at the Aonang Villas resort.
We were there for 16 nights from the 1st September 2012.
The hotel is in a great position right on the beach and the staff were very friendly and helpful but as mentioned on a previous review there is one sourfaced receptionist who should really change her job.
If you have a problem look for Anchalee B a very helpful receptionist sorted out our room almost instantly her english is very good apart from the one mentioned all the staff were very good.
The breakfast was about the same each day so if you are staying for a short stay as most of the other guests were short stay, it would not be a problem apart from that it was ok.
The restaurant staff were very good and the food good too, although the menu did not have a big choice but we were in there low season and there was only 100 guests actually staying at the hotel at the time.
The rooms were comfortable but a bit bland just funtional. Our room looked over the pool with a balcony with two sunloungers great when its raining and did it rain. A fridge and flat screen tv great shower in fact proberbly the best shower pressure we have ever had.
We did not use the spa as were told when my wife went for treatment that they were very busy and could not take a booking till the afternoon I do not know what they do in high season?
The pools were very clean but not well maintained we reported that one of the ladders to get into the pool was broken and dangerous, 16 days later the ladder was still broken and dangerous, but they did clean the pool each day.
Just one thing that we noticed over our 16 days at the hotel we never met any of the management staff at all, to busy reading the tripadviser reports?
Also I think the room cleaners should be given cards with there name on etc so they can tell us when they are off, We have stayed at a few hotels that use this idea and saves the cleaner from losing out on any renumeration that she might get as was the case this time.
Overall a great holiday we were aware that it was their low season and it could rain and it did we stayed in the same area two years ago at the same time and it only rained for about an hour this time it rained nearly every day.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front of the hotel over looking the big pool I think are the best . The beach fron...

Rooms, slightly dark, no sewage problems. Excellent ammeneties. Beautiful views from all chalets. Nice balconies.

Location, slightly away from town but free shuttle service solves the problem. For a hotel away from town the room service should be 24 hours.

Very enjoyable and recommended

We stayed here for 4 nights and wished we had booked longer. The location of this hotel is perfect. Beach is right across the road from the hotel, close to all shops & restaurants, many good massage places next to the hotel. The swimming pools are beautiful and service was generally good. We had a bit of a problem with our check-in, but was then rewarded with an upgrade to a better room. We'll definitely be back.

We spent 2 nights here and really wished we could have stayed longer. The resort is great, nice rooms, fantastic pools and very helpful staff. The location right behind the beach is great - close to eeverything but very quiet. We would definately stay here again.

The location of this hotel is excellent, close enough to access the shops and restaurants, but secluded enough to be very quiet. Our pool side room gave a breathaking view of the towering cliffs when we drew back the drapes in the morning. The rooms were average but clean. The breakfast was quite ordinary but OK. We found the staff took a minimalist approach to service. Right next door on the beach side is a cozy cafe named I Deary that serves great coffee. It adjoins BK massage where we enjoyed expert Thai and oil massages in the comfort of a cool sea breeze, this was heaven. If you plan on having clothes made allow enough time for 2 fittings and final tweaking after the 2nd fitting. The 24 hour claim is misleading and could lead to disappointment in the quality of the work. I found that you really need to press them to get what you want.

Room Tip: Try for a room facing the pool. Great views.

Great spot , nice pools , great proximity to beach and town. Don't eat at the restaurant though there are much better places outside.
They allowed 2 adults and 1 child per room . We booked 2 rooms as we had 3 kids. When we arrived it was a double in one room and two singles in the other . When we requested the 3rd single they hit us for an extra 1000 baht per night. Nice one.

Room Tip: Pool level are the best

We stayed here for 5 nights in June and enjoyed the location and hotel. It is very clean, tidy and directly opposite the beach (separated by a narrow local shared pedestrian/car/scooter access road). We had a Grand Superior Sea View room which was very spacious.

When we arrived the receptionist said she had checked our room and confirmed it was non-smoking and had a seaview, which impressed me. All staff were very friendly and efficient. The largest of the two hotel pools is huge and has a magnificent view. We ordered meals through room service twice and they were reasonably priced and quick to arrive. The buffet breakfast was very good.

We had a third floor Superior seaview room with a nice view and small balcony. There are no lifts in this hotel, so my wife did struggle with the stairs in the heat. I could occassionally hear the longtail boats zipping around out the front but this was very minor (it added to the character of the place).

The beach is great to swim at and the main Ao Nang shops are 30m away. There is another hotel closer to the shops, so I liked the separation which Ao Nang Villa had from the shops.

The highlights from this hotel were the pools, local shops, walking over 'monkey trail' (10 mins walk from the hotel) and taking a long tail boat to Railay Beach (good for a day trip) from just outside the hotel. We didn't eat dinner at this hotel and instead eat at the hotel next door (Golden Beach). We would stay here again.

Room Tip: A Grant Superior Seaview room is a larger one than a straight 'superior seaview' room. If yo...
