“It had a great view but...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

I feel really bad about this hotel, I believe that it could have been a lot more amazing had the staff and management had cared more about its patrons. The view is spectacular and having a private beach was a definite plus, but that was just about the only thing worth going for.

And then it all started, the bathtub had dead moths in it and when we tried taking the extra pillow from the cupboards it was very dirty.

Secondly, we tried ordering room service at 6pm but were informed the room service was closed. We had to go to the restaurant in the hotel nearby that was charging 650 baht for a buffet and a show and everything else was really expensive. It would have been worth it if we were starving, but we weren't too hungry. When we refused the buffet we were carted off to a corner and pretty much almost ignored. On another note, the next day I ordered a beef burger which came an hour later. It was cold, the bun was on very old bread and the beef didn't taste safe. We only finished the fries.

Thirdly, we were severely bitten by bed bugs. We tried sorting this out with the hotel but there was only one girl at reception who only wanted to spray our rooms. And then she said that the hotel was full and we could not get our rooms changed. After calling Agoda, we were informed that we could have gotten a room change to the bigger hotel next door but when I showed the email to the receptionist she kept saying check out, check out so we decided to check out instead. We then had to pay for hotel transfer as well, they refused to call a metered cab for us too. This whole affair took 3 hours of trying to organise and negotiate with Agoda and hotel management and quite obviously being cursed at in another language.

It has quite severely impacted our holiday as we spent the rest of our holiday itching and feeling extremely sorry for ourselves. We were only refunded one nights stay, with no apology or reparation. We have tried sorting this out but both Agoda and the hotel have ignored us. By the way, the pictures were taken in the hotel lobby during that 3 hour debacle while we were getting cursed at.

These people own 2 resorts and there is a 3rd hotel named the same in patong ......I stayed in the tri tang resort for 2 days before being transfered to the main resort in main area of Patong. Their Tri tang resort ( 5 min from patong centre ) had the most beautiful view and a private beach ....but staff were shocking ...rude to the ex stream and rooms need a real good clean ...such a pity as this property is a gem !!!! Little tlc , clean and staff change and I would say it would be one of patongs best..... Toilet overflowed 2x in day and was rudely told how to use a toilet ( think after 36 years I know how to go to toilet )told no toilet paper in toilet and must use the hose next to toilet ....sorry I am not a Muslim and dont use that after using toilet thanks. After toilet was unblocked for 2nd time they wiped up the floor with a towel and wanted to leave ....sorry mop the floor with a disinfectant thanks ...huge fight to get that done and then shock of shock the house keeping lady uses the water out the toilet to mop the floor ......sis !!!! Was so pissed off and demanded to speak to owner of the resort ....2 hour fight and they got him on phone .....moved to their other resort in town .....owner very friendly and accommodating....given one of the best room in the hotel .......( upgrade ) room yes... view a def no no and was moved again as the room was booked 2 days later to an even better room . Hotel very nice ...quite unless house keeping the floor above starts moving furnishing at 7 am , good location and housekeeping here does things right ....Think I would stay again and rate a bit better had I not been moved 3 times ....any problems ....demand to speak to owner ...very helpful .....close walk 10 min from bugla rd and shopping centre and in quite area .....tip if light sleeper book on 7th floor 703 - 705 best rooms

Room Tip: 703 -705 or 403 or 404
