It's average but not many selections in Yala. Bit run down and not maintained, food was ok, chef made anything we wanted for the kids... Staff were nice. They had bunnies everywhere and a play ground for the kids. You can talk to safari jeeps outside of hotel ..

We had visited hotel elephant reach with my family and friends. The hotel look was like jungle type theme. The rooms were good and swiming pool was neat and clean. The restaurant was good but service was too slow. The atmosphere out of the room was good with so many rabbits and cat feeling good for children's.
