“Excellent location”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

We stayed here for 6 nights.Loved the location, right on the beach. Rooms were clean & comfortable.Pool was lovely,and we had it to ourselves most days. Nice view from room to the pool. Resort clean, staff helpful. Breakfast adequate. Good location for the bars/restaurants in Ao- Nang. This is a resort that we would definitely return to.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 week and loved it! It is very clean, has good food and decent breakfast. The staff was pleasant and helpful. We were there during tsunami evacuation April, 2012. The staff and management handled it great getting everyone to higher ground in their vans and eventually to a different hotel for the night at no cost to us. I would definitely stay there again if the community would get a louder or better alarm system in case of an earthquake and possible tsunami. The alarm that sounded was so quiet I would have never known to leave the beach. However, the hotel staff and management went out of their way to make everyone feel safe and comfortablet during the ordeal. Also the tour services through the hotel are excellent and we highly recommend them .

We spent in Golden Beach Resort Ao Nang two weeks in April 2012, including the date 11.April -on this date was declared a threat of tsunami because of the earthquake near Banda Aceh Sumatra .. And I can say - hotel management and all staff handled this panic-situation absolutely perfect, guests were escorted in a few minutes, we were evacuated to the evacuation-position in the city and then we were transferred to hotel in Krabi. Here we spent a night. Management ensured rooms, drinks, dinner, internet, breakfast and transfers there and back for their guests free. Next morning, when situation was safe - we returned back to the Golden Beach Resort. But the most important thing was -they took care about guests-safety primarily and not their own safety - so I have to say - BIG THANK YOU!!! And you can believe me - it is not easy, when you are hearing warning siren-voice around... I can recommend the hotel for all, hotel has taken care of guests really in each situation :-) Martina, Slovakia

When you read hotel descriptions that say "right on the beach" you usually think they are exaggerating - well, not in this case. We had an Executive Pavilion room which looked directly out on to the beach. Superb room, excellent staff, one complaint.......breakfast was not good. Fried eggs "over easy" just didn't happen. That apart very happy with our stay especially compared to the Tipa Resort where we stayed one night and checked out the next morning because it was absolutely awful....

Room Tip: The Executive Pavilion rooms are not cheap but well worth the extra if you feel you want some luxury...

My family and I stayed at the Golden Beach Resort in February 2012. We booked an executive pavillion, 3 bedding, for 3 nights at ~4,500 THB per night. The room was average and the room service was not as good. They provided 2 sets of everthing (towels, glasses, etc.) though we paid and requested for 3 and we had asked for another set 3 times which never arrived. In the end, I had to go to the lobby to get it myself. The staff was not quite helpful.

The room seems spacious but with its decoration, that everything was arranged against the wall and the big beds situated right in the middle of the room, we found it very tight and condensed. The hotel facilities and rooms were quite old.

The food, as commented in other reviews, was average. You can find a variety at the breakfast row though in a high season.

The good part of this hotel is the location and its spectacular view. The Golden Beach Resort is situated right on Ao Nang and the morning breakfast view was incredible. The hotel is on the west side so the sunset scenery was even more breath-taking. Consequently, the beach in the evening is usually crowded. The hotel is just 1 min away from the walking street. So, you may want to stay here for the sake of convenience.

The hotel also offered a beach-front massage parlor. The service was very typical and you can't expect much from it. They offered a variety of "spa" services such as aroma therapy massage, Thai traditional massage, manicure, pedicure, etc. But they didn't have private rooms.

Overall, I think it's quite over priced though considering the high season.

Room Tip: I don't find much fancies in the Executive Pavillion. If I had to come back next time, i would c...

This was our second time at the Golden Beach , we booked a specific room through a local rep in August 2011 when we arrived we told our room had been allocated to someone else and in order to get a similar room we had to change rooms 3 times in 4 days. The staff at reception were very helpful but the waiters and staff at breakfast were miserable and slow. The room however was cleaned every day and also clean towels daily. Location of this hotel is ideal for walking to the shops and restaurants etc. We will be returning to Ao Nang but will probably consider another hotel . If you want a massage I would recomend beach hut no:16( Maggie Plums) great massage , lovely welcome and English speaking . If you like free tequila you have to go to Mr Long bar (what a character}
