I had booked two bedrooms where was older than pic. About 4,200 baht/night, it is expensive for service. The air condition hadn't cold and out of service. It had been fixed but temporarily. The pool is very small size and dirty. The breakfast was bad,not clean,not fresh ,may be cooked a long time.I think only coffee it's ok. Should have a car. The view is ok but you can find the other and can't play or swim in the beachfront.

Dear Khun Supranee,

Thank you for your recent stay and give us the review.

Sorry for any inconvenience that caused to you in some point.

-Our Deluxe Room (two bedrooms), we have 2 rooms size 112 sq.m. & 127 sq.m. It is suitable max. for 4 people stay in room rate plus can accommodate more 2 extra persons with additional cost to become 6 people stay in a deluxe room and quite big, full room facilities that is reasonable with the price.

-For the pool, sometimes the leaf on the tree falling into the pool. However, our team do a daily job by cleaning the pool every morning and night time.

-For the beach, it is a natural and over our control that sometimes there is a high tide and low tide. But the guest can swim during high tide.

However, thank you very to choosing to stay with us and looking forward to welcome you in the near future.

Best regards,

The Management Team
By The Sea

We stayed from 15-19 April in a 2 Bedroom with a family of 5.
First off we arrived really early from the airport (9am) and was hoping to be able to drop our bags and spend the time on the beach until checkin at 2pm. To our absolute surprise and delight they had a room ready for us immediately. A room ready for check in at 9am! WOW.
The check in was really warm and welcoming. Very friendly with a welcome juice drink while doing the paperwork.
We were then taken to the room and shown the details. The room was Huge. We had a 2 bedroom. Had a massive kitchen, living and dining area as well as 2 big rooms. 1 with king size bed and the other with 2 singles.
Water bottles were provided every day which was a nice touch.
Our booking included breakfast at the restaurant. As other reviewers have noted the breakfast has a nice selection of fresh fruit but the rest is a bit ordinary. There is however an omelette station where you can have an omelette and fresh eggs cooked to your liking. Be aware though of the flies while eating. They were everywhere. Mind you this was not limited to the restaurant on site, elsewhere eating at morning or late afternoon had the same fly issue.
We used the free shuttle to Old town. Took us straight to the Big mall in town. Was nice and then we walked over to the weekend markets and Night markets. Took a tuk tuk home for 400B.
The pool area was nice if not a little dated and the beach out the front was really only good for swimming at high tide as it is very rocky at low tide. View is very nice when high tide though. We also used the free Kayak a few times which the kids loved.

We did not eat at the restaurant for dinner, as we ate at the Beach bar just down the beach from the hotel every night ( seperate review ), as the food was cheap and very nice.
Be aware of the price of drinks at the hotel as well. A small beer cost 120baht where 80m down the beach at the beach bar they were 50baht.

Overall a very nice quiet place to stay with family. All of the staff were very friendly and they even came and waved us goodbye when we got in our airport transfer.

The room was more a suite with a living area, a nice bathroom and kitchen and very large bedroom.
But the best thing about this hotel is the most amazing views from the bedroom. It was wonderful to wake up to see that beautiful blue sky and sea(most of the time tho we did have some bad weather).
The surrounding area is quiet but a couple of lovely beach bars within a few minutes walk either along the beach or the main road. There are more bars a bit further away but not worth the effort to get there.
We hired a bike and toured the local area for a few areas and it was so nice to come back to our comfortable room, quick change and relax

This hotel has nice size rooms and they are clean. This is not a good hotel if you are handicap. They had breakfast every morning and it was good. The coffee is instant so don't expect great tasting coffee. The food prices I found to be very reasonable. The electric there is not the best. We lost power in our room every day. On our first night our electric box caught on fire. That added some excitement to our trip. The pool is very nice and they keep the beach area clean. Just down the beach are some good and very cheap restaurants and massage places. If I returned to Thailand I would stay here again.

Room Tip: higher rooms( 4th floor) better views

I live in Bangkok since 5 years and I went to Phuket many many times. This hotel offers the best rate price/quality I ever found!
We stayed 2 nights in April. We were very surprised because the room was very big, very nice, clean and balcony on the large beautiful sea view.
Hotel is right on the beach, with also nice swimming pool. Restaurant is good and offers nice beach/sea view too.
Beach is very quiet. This is the perfect area when you wish to enjoy calm and relax, far from crowed areas and night life...
Near hotel we could find local restaurants on the beach, massage (normal ones...), rent motobike, and smoothies/fruits salers
To conclude I will be happy to come again.
