We stayed at Krabi Thai Village Resort in apparently the best time of year. The place was a ghost town. At most we saw maybe 4 other couples during the 4 days we were there. At breatkfast there were about 6 staff with only about 4 of us guests eating. What more could you ask for?
The hotel is very nice, excellent pool with bar, nice rooms with bathtubs which open out to the view. The room had all the amenities of a modern hotel, fridge, tv, etc. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Location wise, they're a bit off the beaten track. They're about a 15 minute walk from Ao Nang downtown and the beach. It's an easy walk and not really a big deal. One nice benefit is there is a travel agency across the street and just down a little ways towards town called Starlight Travel & Tour. They have the best tour prices we found (and we checked at least a dozen places in town). We booked the Phi Phi island tour for 800THB and it was a great tour!
The only food we ate in the hotel was the buffet breakfast which was included in our package. It was a standard buffet with omlet bar, meats, breads, cereal etc.
Only bad thing I can think of is the ants... Thailand has these little micro ants that you can barely see. They seem to be everywhere. They were on the buffet tables (although we didn't see them actually touching any food), they were in our room, and on our porch. The only time they caused a problem was when we were trying to boil water in our room. Whenever we did that, we found ants floating in our water... But I seriously can't fault the hotel for the ants. I think it's just part of Thailand and I'd rather have a few ants than a bunch of toxic spray to kill them.
Shopping...we've been to a few places in Thailand, Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, but Ao Nang has the best prices anywhere. We actually waited on a few things to see if prices would be better in Bangkok at ChatuChak Market, but they were higher. If you see something you like, bargain it down and buy it. Don't wait.
I would recommend this hotel. I'd stay there again.
P.S. Fun hint, at night, pay attention in the stairwells and you sometimes see little bats flying through. Really cool!
