“Worst nightmare - prostitute paradise!”
Reviewed 15 May 2011

I can't believe that there are ANY good reviews about this hotel.
We've booked a suite but upon arrival they've send us to a normal double room.
It was dated, old, dirty and just not somewhere I would stay!
It was really hot and we've decided to go for a swim before we go and look for a better hotel.
Swimming pool was located on the 2nd floor, the floor was covered in dog poo, someone's been sick all over the floor, they had only umbrellas for all the hotel guests!

We then left to look for a better place. When we got back 2 hours later, the dog poo & sick was still on the floor, staff just didn't bother to clean it up!

The manager wasn't available to sort our problem out, the reception staff couldn't speak ANY english and it was a nightmare to communicate. We had to pay for the 1st night despite their false advertising. Don't even visit their website because it doesn't look ANYTHING like the pictures! I can't imagine where they got the images from for the website!

The hotel was full off guests from Germany & Norway, and all the men had local ''pick ups'' with them. It was the ideal hotel for single men looking for THai girls.

I would NOT recommend this hotel for ANYONE!

I stayed at the Golden Beach Hotel and was pleasantly surprised by my stay there. The hotel has excellent location, just across the beach. The building is a tad- old but rooms are well acquainted and service is great.
Will recommed people to stay there, in case they are lookig for value for money options in cha-am and need their little privacy as well...

Enjoyed true thai hospitality with the owner. I was dropped off at a different bus station apparently and she came around to pick me up on her bike..

Room was clean and bright. Its truly one of the closest guest house to the beach. i enjoyed my stay here - oh and what a great bed!! Great value indeed!!

I have to start by telling that we stayed at this hotel for the last 6 days of a 16 day round trip in Thailand at an incredible low price (ticket and trip for € 675,- including breakfast) and whilst bearing that in mind I cannot find anything really disturbing about the accommodation, service or hygiene. True, its a bit outdated and worn and harbors little atmosphere. But the rooms are spacious enough to be comfortable and are equipped with the basics. Staff is polite and helpful, breakfast is extensive and fairly good. Its location couldn't be better since your in the middle of the beach road (which you have to cross if you want to go to the beach)
When I look at the standard rates I think you can do better for that price, but I was satisfied and don't feel cheated. Of course there is always ppl that want to complain and expect 5 star accommodations for bargain prices. If you are looking for a decent tailor that speaks proper English, you'll find one in front of the Hotel at the the left (facing the beach) by the name of mr Guru. An Indian guy that has an excellent choice of fabrics, offers a good price and is honest about the quality of his work. (don't expect haute couture for Marks & Spencer prices)
