stayed here in april 2013 when song kran was on because this was far and away the best deal on agoda at the time as i hadnt booked anything for the last week of my holiday and nearly everything was sold out.
saw palm view had a big room with jacuzzi and it was about 35 pounds a night and looked nice on website so booked for 3 nights.
when we arrived you go into a small private gated development of private houses and through another set of gates to the property and onto a huge drive.
didnt take us long to work out that this wasnt a hotel but more like b&b in someones mansion.
got to our room and we basicly had the master bedroom of this huge house.2 small sofas huge bed,at least a 50 inch plasma with home cinema system huge and i mean huge balcony with swing chair.
back into the room you go through another door into this gigantic dressing room with 6 large built in wardrobes and a fridge.another 2 doors lead of to his and her bathrooms which are both huge and only differ with 1 having a large jacuzzi.
outside had a fabulous pool and the gardens were immaculate. also has a gym with various machines and table tennis.
breakfast was included in the price and you could get the usual breakfast stuff of tea coffee orange juice cereal and eggs or omelette slice of ham and frankfurter sausage.
negatives of palm view resort are location,if you dont have a car this place is no good to you as its about 6 km to the beach and shopping area.
the bedding,why have an amazing room where pillow cases duvet cover and sheets dont match and something my grandmother would be embarresed about.
when i booked this room it was the jacuzzi that made me book here or i would of chosen somewhere closer to the main area. low and behold first time we fill it up theres no hot water.with the 2 showers,2 sinks and a jacuzzi all we could get was cold water. not happy.day 2 and 3 we had hotwater to sinks and showers but not to the jacuzzi.i beleive the owners switched it off and wouldnt put it on.
before we found out we didnt have hot water we had a swim in the lovely pool and on going up to our room to get showered and changed we asked about eating there and we ordered tom yum soup chicken holy basil,chilli, and chicken with rice and some spring rolls and asked us what time we wanted to eat and we said 6pm. 6pm turned to 7pm and the food wasnt hot and just so so.dissapointing to say the least.
now for the worst part we booked for 3 nights and we never had our room cleaned while we were there.
after our first night we was out all day and evening and came back and noticed room hadnt been touched so girlfriend goes downstairs to see the owner and her exscuse was our room is so large they only clean that room every 2 days(not good enough) but we except as its 9.30pm.
next day we have breakfast and leave for the day and come back about 10.30pm and upon entering room we notice room hasnt been touched again so girlfriend calls down stairs and we get another exscuse of they only have 1 key for the room and we had it but the owner cooked us breakfast that morning and sat and watch us get into our car and drive off.
when we left all the bins in the room(4) were over flowing. not nice considering 2 of those bins were by the toilets.
couldnt understand why keep the property in pristine condition but dont clean our room for 3 days and it was the best most exspensive room in the house. makes no sense as all other reviews say how clean it is.
wouldnt return here evere again.has so much potential but lazy attitude.
