Great stay. Modern hotel. Best location. No SPA
Odelia, us1 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
We had the pleasure of staying in the Bookmark Suite during our stay at The Library. The room itself, decor, design, etc was truly one of a kind and remarkable, if not a bit over-the-top. The double king bed was amazing! The room was very cold due to what seemed to be a problem with the air conditioning, however better to be cooler than hot.The resort staff seemed aware that we were the "Bookmark" guests and we received what seemed to be VIP treatment, which was much appreciated. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The red swimming pool was very cool! The Drink Gallery was great in concept, but food and cocktails simply were not that great. Beachfront restaurant and breakfast was much better, however with these limited dining options we went offsite for most of our meals. Beautiful, clean beach with food / beverage service, although there is quite a bit of activity on Chaweng beach and not necessarily ideal for quiet relaxation. The location to walk either direction on Chaweng beach and also walk into town was nice, although we did not find Chaweng town as welcoming and enjoyable as Fisherman's Village. The only part of our stay at The Library that needed improvement is the check-in process and front desk. It's very small and was a cluster of stored baggage and shuffling of activity - it was like checking-in on the baggage claim belt at an airport. This was very different from our check-in experience at many other resorts in Thailand.

I liked just about everything in that place, the only thing I would change is the clear definition of smoking and non smoking areas

The privacy of the rooms and extra facilities for the suites were amazing. The staff could not have been more helpful if they tried and made everything a breeze.

Great hotel tucked away on Chaweng beach
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. The grounds are lovely, and you feel very tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng Rd. The rooms are very spacious and clean, we stayed in a studio room and enjoyed being on the upper floor amongst the trees. The beach is very clean, and we often had the beach section in front of the hotel to ourselves. We cannot fault this hotel at all. Perfect location, and wonderful service.
