I came to the resort to check the pricing of the rooms. I asked at the reception the prices and with a grunt the man behind the desk pointed to a paper with the pricing list. He did not say a single word. But I thought, probably he finds it annoying if somebody asks a question like this if the...

When I booked here we thought we were getting a little bit of luxury for £160 (we are backpacking so used to staying places for £5 or less a night). When we arrived we had to walk through a building site to get to reception, were greeted by a rude young man at reception who took us to our room,...

Our room had roaches, and was unclean. The wifi nor the hot water worked. When we asked for a drop off to the pier to catch our ferry the reception was unhelpful. The bathroom was the worst part, with some kind of small animal dung all over the walls.

Stayed for 4 nights, upgraded to a room near the beach. Over-priced for the room and amenities but a great setting on the beach and close to shops in Chalok Baan Kao. Room had Air Con which was good and a TV. Didn't find the staff to be that helpful - no extra effort was made to orientate us to...

Perfect stay. Minimalistic, but extremely clean room. Bed sheets changed duly every day, room cleaned, without even asking. Non intrusive and extremely expert staff. Very kind and helpful and go out of their way to make their guests feel comfortable. We took an AC room and are hard pressed to think of anything negative to say at all

We stayed here for 5 days whilst attending our diving course. The location is superb. Try to get a room close to the beach, really fantastic. Breakfast is not great, but the setting is spectacular! The rooms are air conditioned and quaint with a great outside seated area.

While supporting a nice location the overall standard we enjoyed at Sunshine Resort was sub par. Having booked the budget rooms I knew I was in for a less than spectacular stay. However the conditions of the room left much to be desired. Firstly the mattress is pretty much not existent as you can feel the bed springs digging into...

If your considering staying here then I would definitely recommend getting a room which is close to the beach, they looked well maintained and away from the building site. I recently stayed here and paid 2100 THB per night and was there for 2 nights. The room had clean sheets and AC but the room was clearly not finished and...

We stayed in both the budget room and the ones on the beach which cost slightly more. Budget room ok, clean sheets, working shower although very hot as the budget rooms only have fan, and although this is great in the day, fans are quite annoying to sleep with. When we moved to the a/c rooms (2400 baht +) they...
