We booked an Amsterdam room directly with the resort and well in advance (in May 2012) for 4 nights, because of the good reviews. I only wish, I could see the latest review (from August 2012) before we went on our trip in January 2013. We also had similar experience – the only thing we could think of after our arrival was – how to get out of there. The resort looked rather deserted. The owner asked us what we would like for breakfast, because he had to buy it, he said. It sounded rather strange. The worst came when we saw our ‘villa’.
It was full of clatter - teddy bears, dolls and many unnecessary items...the bathroom looked dirty, the water from the tap was coming sparingly, when we wanted to wash our hands, there was a special instruction what to do to make the shower work. The bedding looked worn out, we didn’t touch the beds.
The room was infested with ants. I suffered a few bites from them when we frantically were searching the Internet looking for any accommodation in Kamphaeng Phet. The wi-fi worked perfectly and in less than 20 minutes we managed to book a decent two star hotel in Kamphaeng Phet for less then half the price we paid for 4 nights in Scenic Riverside Resort. Being at the mercy of the owner to call us a taxi to town, we didn’t ask for the refund. We simply wanted to leave and forget about this terrible experience.
