This is my second time to visit n stay at same hotel. Both the time, our room was in 4th floor and sea view and I booked online. Reasonable price. During our Jun'2015 stay, they allotted a room with balcony and this time without balcony. Balcony has glass. so we can sit and enjoy the sea view relaxingly. Important points...

Small cozy hotel just opposite where the cruise ships visitors are sailed into the beach. Small but nice well decorated room with a excellent view (remover to book terrace and view). Located in a short walking distance from the city center but in a little more relaxed area.

Avoid this place! We had a 2.00pm check in but the room was not ready for 2 hours after due to the previous guests paying to have a late check out. Spoke to manager he was rude, and said to go elsewhere if not happy & we wouldn't get a refund on the room. They wanted 2000 bht cash deposit...

Checked in to a beach front room #503. Sea frontage had made my fatigue evaporated immediately. Nice & clean room. OK reception. One of the setback is the shower water is like 70 years old man having prostate issue. Water come & go due to insufficient pump pressure. Well, I m on the 5th floor, stunning view, yet come with...

Me and my partner stayed here before we left for Koh Samui. After reading all the reviews I was a bit paranoid. But we had booked online and couldn't cancel. Never the less, we arrived safely. We got welcomed by a very friendly face, who explained that she is aware that we had paid online but she would like to...

Stayed here 2 weeks ago, and had money stolen from our bags in our room. We didnt realize the money was gone until we left the hotel the next day. When we rang and emailed the hotel informing them of this, they accused us of lying and trying to make financial gain from the hotel. They intimidated us and threated...

Firstly, no elevators and a million of stairs everywhere. Making the whole stay nothing but unpleasant. And dirty. The water housekeeping uses to mop floors are black. The shower are overflowing the whole bathroom due to dirty clogged draines turning the whole bathroom into a small ocean. The tap on sink is leaking water also making a pond on the...

First the hotel is nothing like you see it in their advertised pictures. It will shock you once you arrive. Secondly they keep 2000 Bhat deposit which isn't mentioned on Booking.com so inspect the room carefully right when you check in. Biggest part they don't tell is that there is NO ELEVATORS & if you're pregnant or have issues walking...

Was a bit hesitant in staying here based on other "mixed reviews". I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment that is meant for 4 people. Shared the apartment with a friend. Good sized apartment on the first floor. Very clean and facilities worked fine. First floor was good but as stated by others view of beach obscured by power lines...

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!!!! We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of October and had $850 AUD (roughly 22,000 baht) stolen from our room by the 'cleaners' that had keys to our room. When we were in the room, after it had been cleaned, people tried to enter the room 3 or 4 times throughout the...
