The resort ground is well kept, quiet, the room we stayed in a bit old and run down, and the food was good. No beach, you will have to walk about 5 minutes to Siam beach which is a nice white sand beach and good for swimming. Staff was friendly and helpful.

The surroundings are stunning with beautiful views to the sea. But when it comes to accommodation it's overpriced and of poor quality. Rooms needs a makeover and there's no fridge or water boiler and the rooms are not properly cleaned. If you fix want a cup of instant coffee at your room you must pay 30 Bath for hot water....

What a great place to stay and a great place to relax. We enjoyed every thing about it and the room service was awesome too. Very clean, quiet and comfortable even though we stayed in a poolside villa. I recommend this place for all families and couples as it's off the main road and very peaceful and is also very...

We spent 3 nights at this resort with our 3 Teenage Sons and overall we had a good time. I think one must have realistic expectations ....yes the resort is in need of maintenance & updating but it offers you a fantastic location away from the Boat Loads of Day Trippers...be warned the Island is a Day Trip destination.

We stayed here 3 nights and this was enough. The staff are very friendly but communication is very hard . The breakfast was always cold even the fried eggs when they brought fresh ones out were cold, the only hot food was the toast as you had to make it fresh. The bed and pillows were like rock and I...

We stayed at The Ban Raya for two days after having booked by an agent in Karon. After the booking we read the reviews and we thougt this was an bad idea. We came there with no expectations! Our opinion is that the hotel does not deserve the bad reviews. The bungalows are ok, but not very high standard. A...

After having spent days in Phuket, and various islands around, we had the unfortunate event of having booked this place through agoda. As soon as we arrived, the horror was all around. The room was disgusting, the beach is no beach but a block of stones and concrete walls! Aircon limited, the shuttle service to the proper beach was 10...
