Cha-Am Methavalai Hotel

Reviewed August 19, 2013

Super hotel both with our without kids. Perfect location, nice staff and lovely breakfast! Nice, big and clean rooms at very nice price! Nice pool and children s pool. The beach is only 2 minutes away. Lots of cheers and super service from the beach staff. You always get a smile from them and if you come back they always recognizance you every time you come. They remember what you like and what you want. So you always feel welcome. I really love this hotel and place!

Room Tip: Rooms in the main wing are the best

The two pools leave the hotel seem uncrowded - which is a good thing - and are well maintained, something which isn't ingrained in the Thai hotel industry psyche.

Staff are generally pleasant and check-out are pleasant unless there is a problem - then they get a black face and stuff up even more as we experienced ourselves and several other customers - in the end it gets solved, but it shouldn't be that way in the first place.

Rooms are spartan yet comfortable and the pillows are easily twice the normal width so ask for thin pillows.

Breakfast is a mixture of east and west with many offerings seemingly left-overs from the night before . . . which may not be a bad thing is you can stomach dinner at breakfast.

All in all, quite a nice place to be

The Methavalai is a solid choice for a holiday in Cha-am. We stayed in a deluxe room with direct access to one of the swimming pools and found it to be spacious with comfortable bedding and efficient air conditioning. Daily house keeping was very thorough with toiletries, etc replenished as needed. Would've been nice to have some English TV channels other than just news channels but perhaps not warranted due to the limited number of English speaking guests. The hotel has some classy touches like an excellent buffet breakfast served in a stylish restaurant opposite the beach and live music in the evenings in the foyer. Both pools are lovely. Good gym. The staff are friendly and competent and the hotel is in a good location with the beach across the road and a money changer, convenience stores and restaurants nearby. Highly recommended for families.

We stayed at the Methavalai for a second time. It is one of our favourite hotels in Thailand. The main pool is excellent for our 6 year old son, he loves the in pool jacuzzi. Although conferences use the hotel the pool area is lovely & quiet & on both of our stays here the guests have mainly been Thai. Views of the pool & beach from the main wing rooms are lovely. Rooms are well maintained & very clean. Buffet breakfast is excellent with a huge choice of different foods. We dislike the other pool by the Beach wing which narrow & constantly in shade.Staff could be more friendly.

Went there with my family a few years ago for the first time and have not stopped all these years
They have a ramp for wheelchair and ask for the building behind...Agreed the views may not be the same as the Main building but the rooms and bathrooms are very friends for the physically disabled
The beach is not a private beach but its just 2 steps away from the entrance of the hotel and the hotel staff are on hand to make sure the touts do not bother you
The buffet breakfast is excellent and u don't need a lunch
If you don't fancy the beach then go for the room where u can jump straight into the pool
The kids just love that
What we did was in the day we were at the beach and in the evening at the pool

Because it has everything Scandinavian wants! In the middle of Thailands biggest tourist destination (for thai), very close to the beach, big pool area for all ages. Every facility you expect - very good restaurant (Lilawadee terrace) and and and. Nobody have complained! WiFi all around - nearly to the beach. I recommend this as the best (situated) hotel in ChaAm!

Room Tip: On the southeast side of the old building! You are overlooking the Beach, Pool and the pulsating St...
