Palmeraie Beach Hotel is located on the mainland in Rayong, a province in Thailand which is probably best known to tourists as the place where the boats leave for Ko Samet. It's about 3.5 hours drive from Bangkok, but you'd need your own transport to get there as it's a bit off the beaten track.

The hotel is located down a small lane off the main road about half way between the more popular beaches of Suan Son and Mae Pim, positioned directly on a very nice and quiet beach. The beach is clean (contrary to some older reviews - I guess they started to clean it up recently), with clear water and nice, powdery sand. It's a perfectly pleasant beach to relax, swim and sunbathe on, but there isn't really anything else within walking distance of the hotel (no shops, massage, restaurants, etc), or even within a 5 minute drive - you'd have to drive a few kms either to Mae Pim or Suan Son if you wanted to go out for a meal or to check out another beach. But, for those who just want to chill on a quiet beach, the location's fine.

The hotel restaurant is fairly basic but good, serving decent Thai food in the evening and at reasonable prices. Not exactly gourmet dining but nice enough, and it's always pleasant dining with the sea just a few yards from your table.

Breakfast was OK, but nothing more, without much choice and I could see it getting boring after more than a couple of mornings. Still, it's about what you'd expect in a hotel at this price point, and I've had worse breakfasts in more expensive places before.

The swimming pool is nice and big but suffers from a few broken tiles. Also they only have about 1 mat for every 3 sunbeds - not a major problem when we stayed though as rarely were more than a few sunbeds taken. It's a nice place to cool off and for kids to play (there's also a smaller pool for very young children).

The rooms really have seen better days though, being old, worn and with a slight musty smell. The building that houses the rooms could also do with a facelift, with dark corridors, tatty furniture and generally a bit of a dilapidated feel about it. There wasn't anything fundamentally wrong with our room, all the appliances worked and it was clean, but it could definitely do with some refurbishment.

Staff were friendly and helpful, although I got the impression they were a bit stretched at times.

Overall, this is a decent enough hotel on a great beach, that just needs some renovation (on the rooms at least) to bring it up to date. For the price, though, it's quite good value.

Room Tip: Ground floor better to avoid going up flights of stairs, plus ground floor rooms have balconies which others don't.

certainly once long long time ago this was a nice hotel and beautiful beach, but now all that was left was a sorry excuse for hotel. It must have had the days of glory during 80 `s .Stone hard beds, small not at all fresh room, not even clean. Far from everywhere,very remote and rip off prises with staff who could not care less. Tennis court, yes but not for serious playing...and no massage,no spa....beach was dirty ..no one bothered to clean it.. Pool was nice. Breakfast was more like a joke We stayed one night and continued to Koh Chang where we lived with same prise in luxery and all conford...
