“Waking distance to everything; beware commute to and from the island”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Hotel isn't worth the full price but is definitely worth the discounted prices found nearly every travel website. Location is a little hard to get to and (this didn't happen to us, but..) it sounds like boat drivers will only take you to or from the hotel as long as the boat is full, and passengers are made to wait all day long until 8 people can be rallied to go.

It has a very good and extensive restaurant and coffee bar and is right on the water, though the actual beach is down the walking path. Other restaurants and resorts are within walking distance, as is a little shop that sells carbon pills if you're having a hard time digesting Thai food. Worth spending a few days here, maybe 2 or 3.

This is a beautiful place away from the curfew in patong. Stay somewhere nice such as the Princess good value access direct from Patong or Phi Phi by Ardaman Ferry change to longboat at East Ralaiy. Avoid marine stingers by travelling to Islands.

Had such an awesome time in this place. Everything was perfect. Pool is awesome. As was low season, some things were not open but this did not bother us. Staff were helpful, rooms were great. Will be back here for sure

good location to reach both beaches, poor restaurant. We had a room in new building, very nice and clean, nice swiming pool. In overall - its not a luxury hotel, but good value for money you pay.Kepp balcony door always closed - as monkeys travelling some times through hotel have intention to still food from mini-bar :)

Room are ok, worth the money we paid. But service is very poor. the staff working in the restaurant is just very lazy and not trained. They pretend not to see you waving at the table and they are very slow to get anything. its a pity because the place is ina very good location.

Average hotel in a very good location.
The beaches are 10 minutes walk.You can also take the boat to other islands not far from there.
In the hotel there are two different buildings, one new and the other one probably 20 years old.
The old block is far from being nice.
The new one is good enough, nothing exceptional.
There are two very nice swimmingpool areas.
The breakfast is very good and the staff helpful and friendly.
Good relation, price/location/service.

The hotel is very nice, comfortable and safe. Breakfast was also included in the price and its a help yourself buffet. Room was spacious with a nice big bathroom, 2 single beds, enough space to move around. the only issues was that shower was leaking and flooding the bathroom floor. We have tried to explain this to the maintenance people but they did not seem to understand what the issue was.
Wifi was rather sketchy as well. Seemed to work around pool area or a reception but even that was a bit of a hit and miss sometimes.
