I stayed here with my boyfriend for 4 nights in Feb 2005. We choce this place as a place to unwind as it was out of the touristy parts of Thailand. The price was extremely good and the pool was the most amazing pool! I will try and attach some photos of it but the photos do not do the pool and resort justice! The resort was new so all the furnishings are modern. The staff are lovely and the breakfast was fantastic.
The only problem was that there were no taxis around, only bus type car things which stayed on direct routes so this made it sometimes hard to get around. Bangsean Beach had only thai people there and I think my boyfriend and I were the only caucasion people there but this was absolutely fine as we did the whole Tourist thing when we then stayed in the middle of Pattaya later on in thr trip.
If you do stay here, there is a little restaurant on the pavement about 100m down the road. It is called "Andy's Place". We spoke to Andy and it turns out he was actaully an Australian living in Bangsean Beach and this was now his business. Anyway - we ate there all 4 nights and we could buy;
1. Chilli Crab
2. Phad Thai
3. Salt & Pepper Squid
4. Garlic Prawns
5. Beef & Black bean sauce
6. Fried Rice
The most we paid for all of this was about $9 AUD! And it was some of the best food I have ever eaten! I think because Bangsean Beach is not much of a tourist spot, it is still very cheap. We also went jet-skiing across the road for $15 for the entire hour which is very cheap compared to places in downtown Pattaya.
So - overall I would rate this hotel as great but I think the best amount of time to stay here is 2-3 nights. (Unless you really want to relax in which case stay for as many nights as you like). I personally like to go out drinking and have a lot more action around me so this is why 4 nights for me was too long. I would definitely stay here though for 2 nights!!!
