“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

I have just returned to Pattaya after two nights at this lovely hotel. Free boat transfer from mainland (an hour late), free breakfast buffet, that was great! Very nice rooms, right at the beach and the beach was full of nice restaurants and bars. The reception gladly helped with any requests and the cleaning was perfect as well...

The only problem was the island itself, everything is expensive, half of the tours were closed, and the visibility in the water was really poor, so no snorkling for us :-(

Room Tip: All the rooms are small bungalows, so no big difference in the rooms. I had a deluxe room, and had n...

We stayed here for six days and it was lovely from start to finish. The resort is located on one of the prettiest bays of the island, a small cove with a shallow bay and lots of nice restaurants and quiet bars. The rooms were clean and spacious (we stayed in the most basic type of hut), the buffet breakfast was great, and the staff were helpful. It's a perfect place for couples who want to relax, but still have enough going on to entertain (you can take boat trips, go snorkeling, hire quad bikes etc). Don't miss out on the delicious food the beach vendors walking up and down the bay sell - eating fresh spicy quid, while sipping a Chang and watching the waves lap the white beach is as good as it gets!

Staff were rude and unfriendly. Would not give us price we found on Internet booking price (which was half the price) and did not let us use their Internet to do so either. Rooms were ok. Very overpriced

My reviews are usually very positive but I can't let this one slide. The potential was there but the hospitality certainly wasn't from the start. After wading through the last couple of metres to the shore from our speed boat taxi, balancing our luggage and giggling, thinking this was a novel entry to a resort, we were greeted with - 'Passport' - the only word said to us for the first 5 minutes. The young lady then picked up a key and we gathered we were to follow her. When we got to our cabin, quite a distance from the beach and next to the cleaning corral, we saw as we opened the door that our confirmed request (2 months ago) for twin beds was not provided. When we stated the mix up, we were were told in no uncertain terms that... 'no there weren't any other cabins and no we couldn't change (and ..no apologies) - the small bench could be made up. Fine until we sat on it - shorter, thinner and definitely harder than a single bed. We were glad we had only booked one of our seven nights on the island. We hadn't wanted to commit to one resort for this very reason.
An hour later we had found friendly, super accommodating staff, AND seaview rooms at Samed Cabana at a cheaper price - we had finally found our little slice of paradise. We did give Vongdeuan another chance for dinner - once again - the potential was there with good food but the service was almost non existent as we had to approach the waiters, clustered in a group chatting, after 10 minutes of waiting to get a menu and not a smile or greeting when they brought the food.
Perhaps management had changed but after 4 weeks in Asia and numerous types of accommodation with fabulous hosts, this was not a Trip Advisor Prize Winning experience.

We come here a lot as we live in Bangkok and in general we love this beach and like staying at this hotel. Increasingly, I have found some of the staff unpleasant, and this time a couple of the men in the cafe were just very rude and wouldn't actually come to take our drink order. One of them grunted at me instead of actually speaking. This is spoiling this nice hotel, a bit.

We stayed at Vongdeuan Resort for 4 nights. The people at the office in Raylong were very helpful to get us on the boat to the Resort. Once arrived on the island, the staff at reception were very friendly. Our Thai house were lovely - the curtains a bit dated but everything was clean,and the aircon worked well. Basically everything you need is there. The mattress on the bed was a bit too hard for me. The only thing that bothered us was the fact that we had very noisy neighbors with a small child. The walls are definitely not soundproof as we could hear them sneeze, shower and talk! The Thai house is made up in 2 units seperated with a paper thin wall with interleading door. The breakfast was super every morning. There are also wonderful restaurants along the beach to choose from and it was really such an easy romantic time for us.

Room Tip: For a more quiet room book a brick wall room

Having read some reviews we werent sure what to expect, we had been recommended to stay here by freinds.
We loved our Thai house that was just set back from the beach very comfortable, good aircon and clean.
Beach is beautiful pool also really nice and very quiet, bar drinks snacks, ice creams and HOT sun all made for a lovely 5 days.
Our favourite restaurant was actually the hotel Vondeuan Villas reasturant, beautiful setting on the rocks overlooking the beach and really nice food. Just dont forget to put on a lot of Mosi spray.
Our only small observation is that I think the staff on reception could be a little bit freindlier.

Room Tip: Thai house 1 and 2 are really close to beach .....
