This place was absolutely fantastic. My friend and I got an amazing deal on a room at the golden bay cottage from agoda. First of all, this hotel is in a great location. Not too far from the pier, right on the beach, and close to shopping and various restaurants. Secondly, everything you need is in the hotel. They had... More

The breakfast every morning was great and the restaurant had a good selection of food at reasonable prices. Eating at the restaurant in the evening right next... More

Visited at the end of rainy season, so wasn't especially busy. They seem to have sorted out the chlorine issue in the pool as it was fine when we were there. As someone who spent a few months in Asia last year, the breakfast here was amazing. Most places offer a banana, some toast and a couple of eggs but... More

In short, as much as I wanted to like it (I really did try), it got worse and worse by the minute. I had to change hotel after 2 hours of checking in. Hotels.com picked up the pieces from the mess the hotel did. PROS: -it is by the beach -rooms seem to have been renovated in the last year... More

The restaurant is very good and its location is just by the sea! The breakfast is also very good. Its like 500-600meters to closest 7/11. The pool is awesome with many sunbeds around it and you also have a good seaview from the pool. The rooms are fresh, nothing to complain about except there is no curtain in the shower... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here during low peak season in July and although the area was quiet we found it as a great location to relax and chill for a couple of days. It is down as a 3 star hotel but for the value, the standard seems much higher than that. The rooms were modern, clean and well... More

We booked through agoda and got half price deals through low season which was awesome and made it only just more expensive than a hostel. The staff are very nice and friendly, the rooms are nice and the air conditioning is strong which is a blessing in Thailand! The menu is pretty good at the restaurant but the buffet breakfast...
