We paid a bit more to have one of the two top apartments. On the 4th floor these have a truly spectacular view of the sea front from a large private balcony. We found the staff to be relatively polite until things went wrong two days before we were due to leave. A bedroom wall light fell to the floor and smashed. We assured the staff that neither of us was in the room when this breakage occurred. It was also apparent that the attachment point on the fitting was clearly damaged, nevertheless we were pressured into paying for the breakage. The staff threatened to call the local Police and warned that this would not be a good experience for us as Patong police had little patience in such situations. We decided to pay up on the basis that it was $25 and that we had come after all for a relaxing holiday.
On two separate occasions when it rained heavily water entered the bedroom of the apartment at the base of the sliding doors even though they were closed and locked.
Heavy applications of gap sealer on both sides of these doors were a clear indication of previous attempts to prevent inundations.
On our last day there was a large puddle of water visible on both sides of the double bed. The staff explained it by insisting that we must have left these doors open!
The first days were great in the apartment but the last two were very stressful for both of us.
The apartment itself was generally good and in a good location. Other visitors may have better luck with the fittings and the weather than we did.
Needless to say we won’t be back there.
