“They have given up, you should stay away from that place”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Maybe this was a nice place 5 years ago, but now they have actually given up. Everything is in a state of free fall downhill.
The breakfast is bad and possible a health hazard. The bar and restaurant has closed down, it is not possible to order anything. You can buy drinks from street vendors up on the main road, not in the hotel. The pools are not clean, and the pool area is not attractive, only a few worn sun chairs. Rooms are worn, but actually decently clean.
Location is really bad. There are no restaurants, shopping or other service nearby, you have to go by taxi for everything.
There real problem is the location. In such a bad location it will never be possible to attract customers. And they know it. The staff and manager is friendly and they do their best. I feel a little sorry for them.
Also read "berryberm"s review, he/she is completely right.

Stayed in here in the first week of janruary..the rooms are okay. There are 2 pools and they are not cleaned untill night time.it gets windy at night and the pool is full of leads in the morning and with the bigger pool there is a load of dead leafs soaked to the bottom. The breakfast is pree cooked and the staff proudly hand u a cooked breskfast which is cold and the flys have had a party on it before u get it. The bar is the breakfast space and is not open at all the staff spend most of the time sleeping in hammocks..this would be a great hotel if the bar was open..breakfast was hot..pools were clean and if they staff kept the grounds clean..we changed hotel half way through the week we had paid for....there's loads of hotels in white sands..don't waste ure money here

I had a wonderful time at this resort! It backs on to the sea (the views are beautiful), was a reasonable price, breakfast was good, it had two very nice pools and the rooms were pleasant. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and helped me to organise a wonderful and care-free stay on the island. The only thing that might put you off is that the hotel is a few kilometers from the sandy beaches... but that said, it is located between two and it was nice to be away from the bustle of the other resorts.

Just got home to Bangkok today from this hotel, it was very good! We rented 2 rooms which were both nice and had no problems. Booth bathrooms looked to had been recently re-tiled. The staff were nice and helpful, there was free wifi in the restaurant and lobby, and in some rooms but our rooms did not get wifi.

Breakfast was good, there was a selection of bread, cheese, ham, tuna, thai dishes and they cooked to order sausages, bacon, ham, omelet and eggs. There was also a variety of drinks and fruit.

I read a few negative reviews before staying here...but my experience was really good, perhaps it was the time of year we went (Thai new year, 3Thai public holidays).
We rented out 2 scooters for 200 THB/day to explore the island, it is definitely the thing to do if you choose to stay there or anywhere on the island as taxis are expensive.

Room Tip: Book scooters, lots of fun and easy

We stayed at Resortel for 5 nights in April 2010. We quite enjoyed the setting and think we got excellent value for money. The staff seemed to be mostly from the same family and were always very helpful.
Here are some important things to take note of:
It is located about halfway between White sands and Klong Phrao beach, a little to far to walk to either of these beaches. While resortel itself is on the shore, the beach is a rocky one.
It needed some upkeep. There was some unrepaired water damage on our bathroom ceiling and some of the exterior was a bit tired.
The olympic size pool was great, but was a little murky.
