Right on the beach, great location
Had a lovely stay, staff very friendly and good service. Room was a bit small for 4 of us but only stayed 1 night. Good breakfast. Highlight was the close proximity to the beach, as soon as you walk out you're on the beach, nice and relaxing

Good place with nice view
Friendly and accessible staff that went out of their way to comfort you and take care of you. Breakfast was good, we did not take any other meals. Laundry service was also really good It is everything which you expect from a hotel like this. It is just not in mint condition so giving it 5 stars feels off, some of the seating could be a bit more comfortable for example Rooms were very clean, all the linnen was Our room was good, nice bed, this is not a 5 star as the shower could have been better, one of the windows was boarded up and a number of other things (nothing major, just not 5 star) Overall would really recommend a stay if you are considering staying in Trico! It is clean, the staff is great and it is nicely located.

2/10 Poor

Vilseledande marknadsföring!
Detta är ett skitställe där dom har photo choppat bilder på rum och byggnad. Jag har bara sett värre en gång i Bangkok för 9 år sedan.. vilseledande marknadsföring i sin prakt.. antingen rum mot havet utan toalett och kylskåp eller något.. eller rum med en brötande AC ..sladdar hängande överallt och INGA fönster . Stannade där i 40 minuter. Trots förbetalt utan Återbetalning.

L'endroit est parfait ! Le patron et le personnel sont très gentils et serviables. Le logement est situé sur la plage. Les repas sont préparés en fonction de nos goûts (pas trop piquants pour les enfants...). C'est délicieux ! A réserver sans aucune hésitation.
