I had read a few ok reviews on this place on another website so thought we would check it out on our one night in Ao Ton Sai on our way from Krabi - Koh Lanta.
Firstly I would not recommend this resort to anyone who is not looking for cheap bottom of the line accommodation. The beach itself is strewn with rubbish and broken glass and on our way up to the resort we walked past piles of rubbish just dumped at the side of the path. This also included restaurant furniture and mattresses from resorts just thrown into the woods.
We checked in and were given our key to the room and then given some random directions to where it was but had to go back and ask again as the rooms are numbered really haphazardly, room 402 is next to 216 etc. We were in 217 which was basically just a shack on stilts with loose floorboards and a ripped mosquito net that hung over your face and allowed the mosquitoes to just bite you through it anyway. The room was filled with insects off all kinds, the sheets were dirty, the handles off the door had come of and just been placed on the shelf so you had to try and hook your finger round the door to open it. The electricity only goes on from 5.30pm - 9am (or so the signs say, but it actually went off at 7am) which meant the room was stifling as the fan switched off and you had no choice but to get up and leave the room as it was unbearable.
The bathroom was outside which was ok as at least it was cool but there was a sign asking you not to throw tissue into the toilet but not providing a bin or anything to put it in so not quite sure exactly where they wanted you to put it...in your pocket maybe??
I actually don't have anything good to say about this resort apart from warning people not to stay there. The Viking Village down the other end of the beach was much better with a nice beach bar and freindly staff. Much better than this place.
