Al Medina Beach House
Ranked #15 of 23 Hotels in Chanthaburi
Reviewed August 7, 2010

it was quite, peaceful, with great service. Room was comfortable. Menu food was very good. Breakfast was just ok. Great place to relax and see the area. the beach is lovely, until you get up close, then you see the trash. Ok for a walk, but not for going in the water or laying out. The staff was extremely helpful and we really enjoyed our time.

Al Medina Beach House can called themself boutique hotel, independant, unique, quirky or whatever they like. But the truth is they are so OVERPRICED. I fell in love with this hotel from the pictures on their website. I should have known that you just can't trust what you see on the Internet. What we saw when we arrived was pretentious designs, poor quality fitting, and non-prefessional staff in the reception area. I understand that the hotel was built (trying to be) in Morrocan style. The first room shown to us was more like a Morrocan prison. It was plain, and cheap looking. The fitting was so poor. Everything we touched just fell off! The staff just laughed when this happened. We had to ask to stay in the another room. At the end, we decided to shorten our stay to only 1 night. They got a bit funny at first. When we asked to speak to a manager, we were taken to see this woman who we thought she was a cleaner. Their staff dress code there is extremely casual - apparently, barefoot, scruppy cltohes, and messy hair are good! After a long...long conversation which involved phoning the hotel owner a few times, we got what we wanted. The only good thing about this hotel is the waiting staff at breakfast. They were lovely, and friendly. But NEVER AGAIN. Al Medina Beach House is a very isolated (a few miles to nearest restuarant), pretentious, and overpriced hotel. Only to be used when you want to torture yourself.

From the 1st step into the beach house we felt truly relaxed and pampered not by 5-star facilities but cosy atmosphere and people there. Everything made us feel right at home. We love welcome drink (lemongrass juice served with lovely straw), stylish room, antique furnitures, chandeliers, beautiful beach, that 2 guard dogs, Thai foods (very spicy), breakfast by the sea and especially smiles from everyone.

As it was our 6th anniversary, they recommended us to have candlelight dinner on roof-top deck where we can see panorama sea view. And wow everything was perfect. What a wonderful trip. Thanks Al Medina. We can't wait to return again and again.

The beach house is situated in a very peaceful area BUT far from town and shopping area. Then nothing to buy!!! :)

I'd love to highly recommend this beach house for honeymoon couple. Al Medina is such a lovely place to do nothing and listen to the sea.

Don't expect it to be your dream hide-away... This place looks NOTHING like the website. the beach was brown, the kind we didn't bother dipping into. My other friend happened to be there just a few days before me and when we talked about our experience at Al Medina, we came to the same conclusion - disappointing in a very irritating kind of way.
