We arrived December 30 at Raiwin Beach Resort.
Arrival - We had pre booked a fold out bed for our room. The hotel staff couldn't remember if they knew about the bed or not. We arrived to our 'average' room and the fold out bed was sitting on the front porch. They promised that when we returned to the room it would be set up. When our third guest arrived and took her bags to the room there was no bed set up and no bed on the verandah. Finally, they organised the bed, after much probing.
Food - the food at the restaurant was the most expensive of all the cafes and restaurants on this beach and by no means value for money.
Massage - As too were Raiwins massages the most expensive on the strip but again, they did not offer any superior service.
Cleanliness - while the bed sheets were crisp and clean the bathroom left much to be desired. The glass left in the bathroom for brushing teeth which was wrapped in plastic usually represents a hygically cleaned glass ready for use. When I removed the plastic I found dried up toothpaste and water marks all over the glass.
Towels - there was a serious shortage of towels at this hotel. We were given one for showering. When we would ask the desk for a towel to take to the beach they would suggest we needed to use the towels from the room and they would then replace them in our room. We were well aware if we took this advice we would be left without a fresh towel to shower with. Again, after much probing, we were sometimes successful in securing a second towel but it could take an hour or two. One time my husband requested a towel and was told to come back in Feb or March when they weren't as busy.
Our overall impressions of this hotel were fairly poor and based on the above instances I would NOT recommend Raiwin.
