“Great place, stayed there twice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Me and my boyfriend stayed there for one night and then came back for another few. They gave us a room at the last minute. Really reasonable rate and rooms and clean, with hot water and a simple but nice buffet breakfast. It's on railay east literally a 5 minute walk from the beautiful beach on railay west. It also has a great pool and thee best massage place on the island which was cheap with lovely people! The restaurant was also nice! I really recommend it, the hotel isn't very fancy but it's value for money and everything about our stay was pleasant!

We stayed in one of the bungalows for 600 tbh per night. The rooms were okay but they were not clean. The sheets had some stains on them and there were a lot of bugs in the bathroom. You only get one tiny roll of toilet paper and when you ask the reception for more they are rude and you almost have to argue with them to get more. We ended up being sick for two days and when going to the reception to ask for new towels the guy working at the reception starts yelling at us because the towels we brought back had stains on them. We were forced to laundry the towels ourselves before getting new ones. I find this behaviour from a hotel unacceptable and will never stay there again!

Service was terrible and I had to call down for a hairdryer three times before anyone finally responded and it took over an hour to get it. When I finally received a blow dryer, housekeeping was at my door three minutes later asking when I would be leaving my room. Missing television remotes in room, which made the tv's inoperable. No ironing board, charge for valet parking and internet. If you are a loyal Hilton HHonors customer, do not expect any perks. It's Las Vegas and they can get away with terrible service because they will always fill their rooms.

This place was relatively cheap so cant complain, the room was clean, A/C, with en suite. There was a free breakfast but it was more of a snack than anything. theres a long hike up i think we counted 120 or so wooden steps. You cant pick up the free WiFi anywhere in the resort away from the reception desk, but the view is great and the pool was nice. All in All, probably my favourite place in the world, so the hotel was unimportant, and this place was cheap, clean, and A/C when i needed it so you cant go wrong!

At 3 am we were rudely awaken by the emergency. We were on the 34th floor and there was some sort of smoke that we were inhaling as we headed for the exit. Half way down we heard a loud boom and was unsure of what it was.My husband was carrying down our infant and my cousin had two of her elementary aged children, who of course were terrified. When we were almost to the bottom we got word that it was false alarm and to go back to the room. I was so scared that I checked out immediately and had my husband pack our room as I was not going back up there. My cousin needed to work at 7 am and there was no going back to bed.I am greatful that it was a false alarm but I feel like the hotel could of done something for us like given us a little discount off of the bill, free internet (worth $20) a fruit cup but we got nothing. The General Manager said it wasnt there fault therefore would not do anything for us. WOW that was too bad because word of mouth is very important.I had to call back two days in a row to try and speak to someone about our concerns. I was told by the operator that the managers were busy because there was another fire alarm that went off the next day.If you want your sleep and peace and quiet DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!

It was much better few years ago. But as a budget stay in Railay it's ok.
By now:
1. Wooden path almost destroyed by rotting. Please be careful while walking at dark.
2. Rubbish is burn right in the garden, 30 meters from the last bungalows. Expect stink every few days (neighbouring hotel does the same, so you have to smell their stink also).
3. The hill of rubbish is also visible and makes the garden view not so nice as I expected.
