We stayed at Krabi Thai Village for 5 nights on our honeymoon. It is a pleasant resort with an impressive Thai style foyer, nice grounds and great pool and pool bar area (complete with well-maintained fake grass!). The staff are friendly and helpful - although some have limited English skills.
The rooms are a little bit dated in style. The safety deposit boxes were small and a bit primitive (but adequate).
The breakfast buffet was adequate with fruit, pastries and hot food. However some of the food did not seem that fresh. The egg station was nice - omelette and scrambled eggs made fresh to order. Tea and filtered coffee were available - staff didn't understand my request for a latte :)
We didn't eat at the restaurant at any other time of day... And we never saw anyone else dining there either. There are plenty of restaurants in Ao Nang (check out Carnivore, Hilltop and Lae Lay Grill for some great food, service and views).
The swim up pool bar is nice and has a good selection of cold drinks, snacks and cocktails. Again we had communication difficulties as the staff did not know what an ice coffee was - even though it was on their menu! We pointed to it on the menu and tried to explain to the staff, then waited 20 minutes until an iced-tea style drink appeared - watered down coffee with ice and a slice of lime!
Our biggest let down was the expensive wi-fi... 300 baht per day and 1500 for 5 days (approx $50 AU). We stayed at 2 other 5 star resorts in Phuket before we came to Krabi and they both had free wifi. However we discovered that many of the cafes in the main street of Ao Nang also provide free wifi if you eat there.
We had a pleasant time at Krabi Thai Village. It was a good base for sight-seeing (do an island tour!) and experiencing Thai culture. Overall, our opinion is that this resort is an acceptable 4-star resort, however needs some considerable improvement in service, accommodation, breakfast options and internet services to become a true 5-star resort.
