We stayed here for 8 days in March 2013.
We enjoyed the location as we were about 10 mins by baht bus from the town. The beach was quite nice with just a few rocks.
The rooms were really damp smelling and my friends who have asthma needed to have their room moved.
The food in the hotel was not cheap but was really tasty. I don't recommend the thai dancing night though as there seemed to be 4 people dancing, they did not know the routines and only danced 4 times. Thai dancing normally includes a number of short dances and tells a story but this did not seem to.
The waiting and bar staff were really helpful and friendly but the manager was useless.
On the last morning, we were woken up by the smell of burning electrics followed by the sound of a fire alarm. We rushed out of bed to find smoke coming through the stairs to the first floor. We waited outside to see what was happening. Eventually the smoke died down after you heard several buckets of water being thrown.
No one came to speak to the guests apart from a waiter who asked which room was on fire! Eventually we went to the restaurant to get a coffee whilst we waited to see what was happening.
My friend asked to see the manager, he advised that we did not matter as we were checking out. Our rooms were filled with smoke and all of our clothes smelt really strongly as the smoke seemed to blow into our room.
What disturbs me is that no-one came to check to see if everyone was out of their rooms. Even if they thought they could control it surely someone should of checked in case they couldn't.
I would not stay here again.
