The room we had on the 2nd floor was ok. The bathroom could use a few small adjustments, shower head was hanging lose, so was the water sprayer next to the toilet. Television had a mind of its own, kept scanning for new channels every few minutes, making it impossible to follow anything. Free wifi on the resort was ok,...

Scandinavian Residence. A resort ok, maybe a little far from town. 10 rooms, which could have been a little bigger and 3 backpacker rooms having an ok size, but are at the back. A small swimming pool, bar and restaurant. The place was before owned by a Danish doctor, but is now taken over by a local family.

This guest house is located at the outskirts of Ao Nang right on the street to the shell fossil beach.

We stayed here for 3 nights based on the trip advisor reviews. I really cannot understand the amount of good reviews on this place.

Thanks for your response, which gives me a chance to correct your wrong information. It"s made clear on all booking sites that the distance to Ao Nang Beach is only 1,852 meters. As you already knew this why do you complain? Very easy access by Tuk-Tuk and Songthaew 24 hours. We have only 14 rooms of which only 3 are...

Stayed here for 4 days. Great value for Money and Works well for our Family as it is very private and kids can play at pool etc. Basic foods for breakfast and lunch but expect to go out for dinner. The owners are great and we always feel welcome here.

Accomodation was cheap and it was 5-8minutes from the Ao Nang town. We had the basic amenities, and there was no air-conditioning but it was alright for the 3 of us.
