It's the first time i have been misled on tripadvisor. I selected this place based on the reviews and its ranking, and I have never been more disappointed.
Other than the ambience that is pretty calming, nothing else would attract me to stay here again.
For me, the location of the hotel talks a lot about convenience. This place is situated on a small street, and requires at least 5 minutes of brisk walking to hit the main road. From the main road, walking to Ao Nang beach will require a good 20 minutes; or 10 min of walking to Nopparat Thara beach. To get to the main thoroughfare of Ao Nang where the shops and McDonalds are, take a tuk tuk, don't even bother to try walking in the hot sun. The only saving grace about the location of this hotel is that there are food stalls and 7 eleven within 5 mintues of walking. Now I can understand why this resort does not want to produce a map with its location.
I had the deluxe top view room. The room is sufficiently furnished. But the cleanliness left much to be desired. Black droppings near the towel hanger were not cleaned away even after 3 days. I even found a bug crawling near my luggage.
Breakfast was basic, with omelette freshly cooked on the spot, and cornflakes, bread, porridge and sausages laid out for your selection.
Late checkout indicated as a perk if you book directly is not true. Asked for late checkout and was told all rooms were fully booked. I verified it by booking a room via the website and guess what? All room types were available.
Really, think twice, there are many other hotels in Ao Nang.
