Two friends and I, backpacking and looking for some rest, we lured into this hotel by very friendly people at the pier. Unfortunately thats also where the good service ended. The pool was being cleaned with chemicals for two days. After we e complained, since we we promised a working pool, we were told that we could as well go swimming in the chemicals if we wanted a pool so much. If that wasnt enough we were greeted by scorpions and myriads of moscitos in the bungalow bathroom every morning. Last but not least the bungalow was broken into (window smashed) and a cell phone was stolen. This did not stop the staff from being very unfriendly and at the last day we were not even allowed to stay in the room for 2 hous after chek-out time even tho the hotel was three-quarters empty.. DONT GO HERE!!!

Room Tip: Do not go here!!

This is second time my partner and I have stayed at this hotel. We stayed for 10 days this time and all the staff were very helpful and very friendly. We stayed in a standard room and although we didn't have a seaview, we had a fabulous tropical garden in front of our windows and it felt very secluded - lovely! The room was very nice and cleaned everyday. It had good aircon and a few film channels on the TV which was enough.

The hotel is at one end of the beach has has sunbeds (with spongy covers!) which overlook the beach but still have the swimming pool behind it (best of both worlds) The sea was warm and clean and very shallow - it is not great for swimming as too shallow but good for sitting down in and relaxing. Not many pebbles in water either and mainly sandy underfoot! The swimming pool was in need of cleaning (it was very murky and didn't seem to be filtered). On the last day we were there though some people tested the water and the pool was closed for cleaning so hopefully it is clear again now!

The food in the restaurant was a good standard and breakfast was great. Breakfast was included in the room price and you could have fresh fruit, toast, frankfurters, thai foods, and order eggs to be made in front of you (omelette, fried, scrambled etc.) which was lovely. The beach also has lots of restaurants and they put candlelit tables out every night and some restaurants do fish BBQs. Most of the bars close by around 11pm so it's not a big place for night life but has beach bars with ambient music up till this point. We ended most evenings with a foot massage on the beach!

Overall, it's a great relaxing beach with plenty to do and hopefully we'll visit again in a few years time!

Room Tip: Turn up and choose your own room!

I visited the hotel in low season in July and got a very good price for the room. Bungalow was quite well. The room is big enough. But the most beatiful part of bungalow is terrace with spectacular view to Haad Yao bay. Don't believe to pictures of room on booking.com. They are not truth. The bath doesn't exist on the terrace and room is not as luxury as you can think looking on photos. Breakfast is good. They serve some hot dishes and a small selection of fresh fruits. Very good concierge service - very well english speaking nice woman. House keeping service is very good - it is very important, because sand of this type is everywhere when you come from the beach.
The Haad Yao bay itself has good beaches, but in the morning water totally disappears. In the afternoon the maximal depth is about one meter which doesn't allow you to swim.
Hotel is a good value for money, but don't be confused of luxury pictures - mostly they are not truth.

Room Tip: I recommend to choose superior bungalows. But this bungalows has to be far from the pool. Otherwise it will be totally transparent, visible and very confusing.

Arrived in hotel and hidden charges for room key deposits, "service charges", climbed the mountain stairs to room at back of hotel, same smelt like sewer drains, asked to change, given room that people were in, poor reception staff had to pay extra money or put up with smell, resturant staff rude and very slow ( dont be in a hurry/hungry) had to cancel order after45min wait because only 1/3 food arrived, then given out to by waiter, beach ok, stay somewhere else sheets were stained with yellow in both rooms we were in, poor quality as overpriced
