Ordinary stay and experience.
Service has a little worse this time. Made an enquiry on airport transfer and the staff just curtly pointed to a sign. Wifi was quite patchy. Facilities are ok.

Quite place , smelly rooms
Location is fine if you're looking for a quite spot. The rooms have heavy unpleasant damp smell and could use fresh dry air once in a while .

Convenient and nice spacious rooms
Contacting the hotel a week before the booking was very difficult as emails and calls weren't getting picked up. Later on they said the email didn't go to their main line. Once they answered, it was smooth from there. The hill that people complain about isn't that bad, it's nice exercise. Room was spacious and the jacuzzi tub was great to soak dive gear and dry it on the huge balcony. The queen bed was actually 2 singles put together, but it was still comfy and clean. Bathroom was a bit small and in the morning there was a bad smell from pumping sewage, keep it closed. Area nearby was great and convenient. The sky bar was amazing, loved it. Also enjoyed the omelets at breakfast. Hotel did a thoughtful event for easter too, very sweet. Rented scooter through hotel too @250 baht and airport transfer @ 1000 baht. Nice hotel, we enjoyed our stay.

This is the title of my review (a good review)
Great stay. Staff were helpful and friendly, and room was comfortable. Excellent location too, only a few minutes from the main beach, and not too far from Kata Noi for something a little quieter and less crowded.

Stig, gb11 night family trip
Poor 2.0
I’ve been numerous times to Thailand in the past 10yrs but had never experienced such bad service and attitude from a hotel. During our 5 nights stay it felt like the staff had no proper training or simply could not care enough to provide a good service. To exemplify, a hotel so-called 4 stars cannot: give to couples a voucher of welcome drink for one; serve cold food at breakfast. The buffet overall was pretty unsatisfying; run out of hot water daily; refuse to supply ice to the room and instead tell you to go buy it in the supermarket; be unhelpful when you need a taxi; advertise its free mini bar that consists of: 1x cola; 1x juice and 1x beer; advertise its sky bar that is only open from 5:30pm to 8pm. IF it opens: in one of the evenings there was no one working there, I called the reception and the excuse was the bad weather, which was not the case, it was a beautiful evening and there were many guests like us just wanting to enjoy the sunset; insist to charge you for a broken drinking glass - which for sure we did not break. Yet, with all the limitations, the most upsetting was the kind of answer to each situation: always a categoric and rude “NO”. Without any of the kindness and sweet hospitality typical of Thailand. Which is a shame because the property itself is nicely designed and the location is really good. But the service was so bad that along our stay we had no desire to even try the swimming pool - whatever, the pool bar was always closed anyway.

Young and friendly staff, great service.
Sugar Hill Palm offers a very good quality room service, the morning breakfast buffet is very good... with the best Guava juice I've ever tasted! The very young staff is friendly and reliable, the resort is in a central place of the town, great stay.
