Spent a week at the Mandarava hotel based in Karon Beach and it was absolutely amazing. Couldn't fault it..
Unfortunately Bangsak Village has been a completely disappointment. Wild feral dogs and cats wandering around. Advertised Wifi completely useless and staff find it laughable that I need it for work. Can't read emails, pay bills nothing. They have multiple wifi networks all useless on any and every device I have. When I told her she simply replied "I know hehehe" NO movie channels available and the standard hotel plugs found around Thailand are not to be found here, won't be using my laptop! Even their laptop
Supplied in reception has a cracked screen and detects no wireless networks. Great!
They are "happy" to transfer me back to the Mandarava for over $140 for transport then near $150 extra a night for accommodation.
This was an absolute nightmare, I proposed to my partner in Karon Beach but this pathetic attempt at a hotel has left a horrible taste in my mouth and I can honestly say I will
Be paying to leave and stay someone else tonight. For a young easy going 28 year old that says a lot.
The one thing I can say nice and repeat ONE thing is that the funnily enough best thing has been the cheese burger from room service and unfortunately won't be trying any more after their response to my complaints, also after seeing cock roaches at the breakfast buffet. I won't be taking advantages of our breakfasts included in the booking.
I will be chasing this up no doubt with the booking company and my Credit card company too.
Thanks for nothing Banksak!
Looking forward to returning to Mandarava tomorrow!!
