“In need of renovation”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2008

Our party of 8 stayed at the Malibu Garden for the last 4 days of a 3 week holiday in Jan 2008. It was by far the worst accommodation we had encountered in Thailand. For location it is fantastic, right on the beach in a secluded bay having arrived by speed boat to the beach ( altho the local ferry and taxi would have been a whole lot cheeper). But there the charm finished, well kept landscaped gardens hide run down shed like accommodation. We booked 5 'Superiour' rooms but it was not apparent as to what they were superiour to on this resourt. In need of renorvation or demolition I think. Had we not paid in full proir to arrival (at the insistance of the owners) we would have moved on. The swimming pool has a dark brown stain around the walls indicating poor water quality and the inclusive b'fast was simply horrid. In close proximmity are many other places to eat (and stay) and the evening beach sceen is relaxed and totally unique. Great location, just a shame about the grotty rooms.

This place was absolutely horrific. We were met at reception by surly unhelpful staff, the rooms were scruffy and badly maintained (certainly not worth B3500 for a family room), the pool was dirty and unsuitable for our young kids as it was too deep and murky, and the American Buffet Breakfast was totally inedible. It was cold and open to flies, so we had to settle for partly cooked damp toast. The dining area was filthy. When we had a problem with our key, one of the staff came to sort it out and as he was leaving, hawked up and spat over our balcony. In the 15 years that me and my family have been coming to Thailand, never before have we witnessed anything quite like this. AVOID AVOID AVOID
