  • 8.0.Very Good

    The location and cleaneness of the hotel is top notch along with the wonderful and continuous smiley faces of the restaurant staff. The negative side is the unprofessional and not so friendly welcome and farewell we got on day one and on the check out time by the reception crew at the front desk who looked so confused and treated us with suspicion by not finding our reservation and offering us the lousiest appartement unit in the hotel facing live construction work and digging before finally switching us to their model apartment after so much huffing and puffing by us and their chat among themselves in Thai with barely speaking any English to us!! That left a bad taste already even though the restaurant staff went out of their way to be friendly and nice to us... the other negative and rude they do on the check out is that they do an inventory of everything in the rooms and they try to charge you for any missing item... They made me pay 200 Bt for losing my room entry card without warning me ahead of time. They also tried to charge us mistakingly for a missing fork and a plate and a pair of slipper and a wardrobe which the cleaning lady claimed to be missing but found them later ... that was so rude, vulgar, cheap and police-like tactics from the medieval era ... then they found their stupid items and apologized after the harm was done... Definetly, the réception desk needs a total makeover and change of tactics and approach and learn to speak English. Please act, tks

    Close to Kata, Karon and kata noi beach

    Good location and close to 3 beaches. Karon beach is the best. It’s about 15 mins walk. kata beach is the closest, about 5 mins walk. kata noi beac is good too but a bit busy, about 15 mins walk. A good 7-11 is close to hotel and pharmacy too. Many restaurants nearby. Hotel is clean and comfortable. It has two pools, one for kids and family, the other one is on the roof top. You can see sunset from there. Overall, it is a good stay for us. Our one year 7 months baby liked it!

    Lovely modern hotel

    Lovely, modern, clean hotel with delightful staff. An easy walk to the beach. It would've been nice to have had more umbrellas at the pools. There is quite a lot of construction happening around the hotel, but the location is excellent. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider returning.
