We stayed at this 'resort' when it was under different management. We decided to go back this year because of the wonderful experience and beautiful location.
The pluses are, outstanding location, beautiful beach, small surf beach further down.
The minuses are: our deluxe room had a plastic door to the bathroom and chairs that had to be propped against a wall because they were falling apart. After checking in we went to the restaurant for a light meal before retiring. Waited for 10 minutes to be noticed, we weren't, then left and went across the road, where we were served instantly. We only went to the restaurant for breakfast. More attention should be paid to the breakfast buffet as some of the food was well and truly past its prime. Internet is only available in the reception area and the restaurant. We had better connection on the beach from other sources.
The biggest disappointment though was the 'compulsory Gala Dinner' for New Year's Eve. Each guest of the resort was expected to pay a large sum of money for a dinner as a condition of staying New Year's Eve, regardless of whether you wish to attend or not. The cost of this dinner for my family (4 four people) exceeded the cost of two extra nights accommodation.
We have been visiting Khao Lak for nearly over 7 years, this is the first time we have encountered this practice. I have to say that Ocean Breeze is not the only hotel/resort that does this. Is this practice, charging for an event at an exorbitant rate, as a condition of booking even legal?
