I stayed here for one night on what Thai people call a company weekend. Many companies in Thailand will book these resorts for the weekend and send their staff for a night or two as maybe part of a teambuilding program or just as an annual trip reward. In this instance, I was a guest of my wife as it were.
On these company weekends, there's nearly always lots of drinking and lots of noise and loud music. You can forget going to bed before midnight but that's the market that these resorts cater to. They are not places for independent travellers or families.
The food is often mass-produced and spectacularly average and the rooms and facilities can be dismal. I've been to about six of these 'resorts' in Thailand and this was easily the worst. The rooms were shocking. I never took a shower because the bathroom was so filthy and I slept in my clothes. Many of the group I was with flatly refused to stay there and got straight in their cars and headed back home.
Like so many places in Thailand, the owner obviously lost interest a long time ago and refuses to pump any more money into it. The whole place is now sad, tired and neglected. Not to mention filthy dirty.
