“Condo Type Hotel”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is more like a condo type accomodations in the middle of a residential area overlooking the sea. I was billeted here by my company since our client's factory was in close proximity to this hotel. However this hotel is a bit far from anywhere ,in fact it is the only hotel in the area.The only good thing is that the unit is spacious and is a self sustained unit where you can actually stay long term since it has everything including kitchen. However if you are here for a tour of the area ,this is not the right place to stay in.

Good studio, no fitness room but a swimming pool. Service is OK even if there is no room service after 7pm (it says 8pm...) only option is order at the nearest restaurant. Staff speaks a little english but enough. It s about 20 km from Chonburi in between the city and Spiracha district. Food is OK

We stayed here for 4 nights. The entrance by car is very narrow and uninviting. The staff speak basic English but we were ok because my partner is Thai. We had two rooms and noted there were inconsistencies with respect to complimentary water, cutlery and crockery. I suspect rooms are independently owned. The breakfast is delivered by room service on time and you get to choose between Thai and Western menus. The restaurant is very basic and they speak little English. We were the only customers and the hotel seemed to be empty. We drove past The Tide at nearby Bangsaen and would probably stay there next time as it seemed more upmarket and is a better area. I agree with the previous reviewer this hotel needs improvement.

This property has the bone but the management needs work.
First of all, none of their staff could speak English. My husband tried to order room service and called them, they hang up on him a few times because their probably did not know what he was saying. My husband solved problem by walk down to lobby and point out food he wanted.
Second, lobby staff always on their cell phone texting. Did not look professional at all.
Third, they have stove to cook but they don't have pot and pan to use.
Forth, their penthouse is too big but no right configuration. Penthouse should have all the view but i think it is worse than 1 bedroom room. I stay on room no. 9705, NOT GOOD. Too big, less quality.
I would not come again here. Not impress. I rather go to Bella Cabana, 3 bedrooms suite in term of price is better and location better with nicer beach.

Room Tip: Don't pick 9705. Room too big, not good view.

We booked this based on previous reviews and were not disappointed. Room 9101 is great (where the web photo was taken from). I don't know why, but we had the place virtually to ourselves. The beach out front is pretty shabby but the pool and quality of the rooms makes up for that.
About 200m to the left as you leave the front of the hotel is a beachfront seafood restaurant. There are two, but we found the first one better. You can relax in the shade overlooking the Gulf and enjoy incredibly fresh and reasonably priced Thai seafood. Recommended.
If you want a few days away from the bustle of Bangkok you could do a lot worse.
Nara residence is a bit difficult to locate but it's worth the effort.

Room Tip: 9101 is a good choice. Very spacious, large poolside bedroom, large dressing room, bathroom with sho...

Brilliant place to stay!. Booked an appartment and got a huge, modern, spacious one with a great view. Bedroom with balcony, kitchen, bathroom, dining area and separate dressing area with closest space and all mod-cons. Three showers in the bathroom!. Great breakfast (with usual asian/continental/american choices). The pool was fantastic and I also enjoyed the rooftop minigolf.

There is not a lot to keep you entertained locally, so I might not recommend for long stays. Nearby there is a great thai restaurant (out front and left 200 metres) and and interesting and cheaper local store with a restaurant (out front and right 100 metres) but that's it for walking distance. If you want anything else you will need a car. Don't let that put you off though, the quality and the people at both places is great.

The seafront is beautiful, but don't expect to be able to swim here.

Value for money was fantastic. For the room we got we were very pleased with the price we paid. I would certainly stay here again if I was in the area.

Room Tip: The rooms on the ground floor had direct access to the pool from their balconies and they looked gre...
