We stayed in this hotel in March, 2011 for a bit more than a week. Our room was on the ground floor, almost facing the pool, with small patio. It was quite convenient as it took only several steps to get to the pool. But on the other hand there is little privacy cos even in the day with no lights on u have to close curtains if u wanna change and so on. So perhaps room on the 2nd floor would be better. But we didn't bother, the pool was more important to us.
Breakfasts were nice, quite a lot of variety for both who prefer meat, eggs and for those who prefer pastry, flakes&youghurt for breakfast. There were fruits and of cos delicious Thai pineapple every day.
The swimming pool was clean but not so big so it's just an option for a rainy afternoon or when u r lazy to walk to the beach. The hotel territory is covered in plants, bushes&trees in bloom so it makes a nice impression though u know outside there is a busy street with traffic and lots of street-vendors selling all kinda stuff. Exchange office is right outside the hotel. 7/11 and everything u may need is in 5-10 mins walk distance. Hotel is on the 2nd line form the beach but is a bit far because there is no direct road and it can take 10-15 mins depending on how fast u r and how persistent sellers or massage girls can be.
Room itself was basic, a bit dirty. Sink was covered with stains of nailpolish. Toiletries provided. If u happen to leave sth edible especially sweet in the room there come ants.
At the check out it turned out that one small glass holder or however it's called (a small plate the glass is staying on) disappeared from our room though we didn't take it outside for sure. Had to pay small fee for that. Didn't have time to argue as we could miss the flight so it left a bit unpleasant impression.
Safe boxes are all in one room next to check-in desk cos they had problems with that 2 or 3 years earlier (check the oldest reviews).
In general, hotel is basic, could be cleaner, staff could be more hospitable as it's Thailand and u expect them at least to smile more often. if you rnt too picky, it's fine. Especially if to book with discount.
По-русски: средненький отель, из плюсов хороший завтрак и зелень вокруг бассейна, почти полное соответствие цена-качество если брать со скидкой по акции. Мог бы быть почище и персонал поприветливей.
