My friend and I stayed at the Great Bay Resort for one night after we were approached by a lady at the pier who works for them and drove us there.
On first arrival it seemed good enough, at this point we had not looked at any other hotels. We paid 500 baht each for a room near the beach.
Our room was clean but not to the normal standard you would expect. Our chair had blood stained marks on it and when I pointed this out to the cleaner she just smiled at me. The bed sheets also had UV paint on them, obviously from the full moon party. The aircon in the room however was superb.
The small pool outside was also very clean.
We had lunch at the hotels restaurant upon arrival, the food was good but slightly overpriced.
Moreover, breakfast was not included.
The staff were friendly enough and didn't cause us any hassle.
We had a lovely massage by the beach too.
We walked further up the beach and found another hotel to stay at which cost almost the same price for both of us. It included breakfast, the staff were super friendly and our room was large and stunning. A lot better value for money.
If the Great Bay resort lowered it's prices perhaps peoples expectations wouldn't be so high and therefore less people will feel let down. This may also draw more customers to the resort. Perhaps this is something to consider.
