If you want a youth hostel for $30-$50/ night room then this is the place for you. Unfortunately, they charge over $100/night and claim to be a 4-5 Star place. What a joke that is! The staff is the only saving grace to this place....super friendly and helpful! But the hotel itself is like a run down college dorm. The showers clog and flood, the rooms are basic (a bed surrounded by cement walls) and the pool, Jesus! I wouldn’t let my dog swim in that thing....disgusting! Unless pools are supposed to be brown and murky, I think something is wrong! Now if they charged $30-$40/night, I would have nothing bad to say. But for $100+/night, stay somewhere else.....we stayed at another hotel on our last night for the same amount.....way better location and WAAAAY better hotel!( L resort) I will never stay here again and urge you to learn from my mistake of booking this place. I just want to repeat though, that the staff was great....this review is based solely on the quality of the hotel!

Dear Michael C,

Firstly, terribly sorry to hear that your recently stayed with our resort is not event close to being worth the money in your perception.

Do allow us to share our point of view about our services and product. Well, what happen it always happen with reason for example the look of our resort, services , facilities and overall conceptual. And such reason is not about 100% right or wrong. It is about like or dislike which vary by persons in angle of industry services. What we meant, difference guest always come up with the difference expectation and perception in the end.

We are rating yourself as a 4 stars locally brand not 5 stars. We ensure that, some of services and facilities which we provided is beyond others generally 4 stars resort has. Room rate issue is about marketing and very by seasonality. Your travel period is in high season of the destination. The lower price will be around May - Oct.

Anyway, your sharing above value experienced is being part or our job which we mush review and think about how to maintain or implement for the better services. That's is an informative feedback from our dearest guest.

Lastly, at least there something good about to remember about us is crews which you have mentioned twice.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Sincerely yours,

Overall stay of the hotel was very good. Hotel staff was highly responsive as well as friendly and helped for things like booking tours, airport transfer etc. Hotel location is 10-15 min walk from Ao Nang Beach, which is convenient for doing lot of the attractions in krabi provience.

We stay there for total four days. For the fist first day was we booked a Grand Deluxe Jacuzzi room via agoda. But By the time we arrive all the rooms we occupied and the gave us a Junior suite. Even though it is officially a upgrade, suites in first floor was not that impressive. Suites have compartments and only good thing compared to normal Delux double room was the bath tub. Rest of the days our room was in 4th floor and it had a decent view to forest patch and enjoyed it.

They arrange tours to almost all the attractions in krabi province for a reasonable price and airport transfers (private vehicle or mini van) as well.

Good value for money and recommended.

Room Tip: For budget stay Deluxe rooms are perfect.

We picked this place strictly based on reviews here on TripAdvisor and generally it was a good stay. I would rate it 3 1/2 stars but I don't have the option of the '1/2' star.

First the good.

Check in was smooth. We arrived late, around 8 pm on New Year's Eve and there was a loud party going on in the driveway. We were told that there was a complimentary dinner (nice touch!) and although it was noisy and stayed noisy in our room till after midnight, we did enjoy the free food. I ordered a glass of white wine which was watered down and we were charged 120 baht for it but whatever. The food was fine.

We had booked two rooms. They were fine. Average sized, beds were firm and comfortable, AC worked fine but the electricity shuts off once you take out the key card from the socket and leave the room meaning there is no AC running when you are out and you come back to a hot/humid room and cannot charge anything (phone/tablet) while you are out. Bathrooms were decent sized and generally OK although the water pressure in the Muslim shower was so much that it literally hurt when you were trying to wash 'down there'.

The free breakfast buffet was a little hit and miss. Plenty of options: eggs made to order, fresh fruit, breads and pastries plus noodles, rice etc. Juices and unlimited tea and coffee. Good thing is its from 7am to 12 pm so you can sleep in and still not worry about missing it. The eggs made to order were patchy. Fine one day, runny and not very good another day.
They do give you free water (3 bottles a day) and I think the mini bar is free although we never took anything from there.

The location is a plus. 5 minute walk from Noppharat Thara Beach and all the main shopping. Plenty of restaurants and shopping in easy walking distance. We did book a tour at hotel reception (4 island tour) and that was fine, no complaints.

Now the bad.

The 'Free WiFi' is laughable. Basically, when it runs its OK but we were there 4 days and it was totally off for at least two days. We were reduced to checking email and message at massage parlors and restaurants. Can't imagine how in this day and age you cannot provide decent WiFi in a hotel. If you need to stay in touch via internet please be careful.

Housekeeping is pathetic. Basically just make beds. Don't even bother to clean the bathroom basin or floor. And they are really stingy with towels.

We never tried the 'red pool' because the first morning we were there, an oriental lady had her infant son in it without a diaper right after breakfast! Sorry, don't want to swim around in the pool where a baby has been pooping and peeing. Hotel really should have a rule about no babies in there without diapers, it's standard in the USA for health/hygienic reasons.

Overall, we are happy with the stay despite the few hiccups. We booked a month before New Year's and were happy to get a room for the busy time. Decent stay overall and would recommend although if we go back, I'll probably try and stay closer to main Ao Nang shopping a little further east along the beach. There are resorts there where you are literally across the road from the beach.

Dear Ali H,

We are very glad to know that, you had a good first stay in Ao-nang with us over new year period.

May I take this opportunity to explain more some point of your review for better understanding our product and services.

1. Key card room system, I pretty ensure that all the hotels in Thailand and many countries are doing the same direction is power cut-off when you take off key card. This is for energy save purpose. There is only one point of power for fridge or minibar keep cool terperature consistency.

2. Not cleanliness enough in the guest room from our room maid. Thank you reflect this comment and sorry for unpleasant experinced you have found. This is our 100% responsible and seriously needed to improve this issue.

3. Rule and regulation for the usage of our swiming pool is provided close to showering point prior get use the pool. Perhaps sometime some of guests might overlook or ignore it. We will take seriously on how to relay this important message to all them.

4. In room tea & coffee making facility and mini bar plus all snacks are provided on hotel's complimentary basis with refill it daily.

Last but not least, we thank you for your sharing this useful information for us to improve our better services. Should we can be of any assistance to you in anyway of your next visit Ao-nang beach, please feel free to contact us at anytime.

We looking to be at your services in the future.

Sincerely yours,

The staffs are incredibly friendly, genuine and warm. Hotel is clean and nice. The hotel also provides essentials like beach flip flops, beach mat and umbrella in the room. There are many restaurants and shops around. It was quite a distance away from Ao Nang though.
