Good property, on the beach. Nice and clean big swimming pool. Rooms typical IBIS rooms with tiny toilet. We booked connected rooms. Check in smooth. Front office and housekeeping staff very helpful. Breakfast good but from hygiene point extra care required as lots of flyies observed having breakfast with us. Juice dispenser leaking, no promptness in cleaning stuff fallen on floor but Food quality excellent. Live Omlett station serves good Omlett. F&B staff requires lots of training as most of the senior staff serves food and do clearance without using salver. Timings of bar mentioned till 11pm but the staff is ready closing the things at 10.30pm only. One day I placed order at 10.30pm, the staff tried to put the order in room service and denied me members discount too. I told them that as you have closed the bar early and requested me to carry the food in room, I agreed that doesn't mean it's room service. Both the girls started arguing so I cancelled the order. PIM is good in work but arogent. One short guy didn't recognise his name (ANINOY) or something always smiling and helpful during breakfast may be a trainee. Food serving proportion also needs to look as huge bowl of Thai curry used to serve with 1 small Roti or very small portion of rice. Food pricing also towards higer side as there is no good restaurant nearby. Close to hotel we found 7/11, 2 good massage parlour, 1 Eirish restaurant open till late night and one more restaurant where food is reasonable but closes early by 9pm. Beach is clean and water is crystal clear. ATM is inside hotel, and Hotel is close to NATHON pire, (500baht by taxi or 100 bath pp by van). No free shuttle by hotel. Overall good stay, we enjoyed our holidays. Read less

When I look at a hotel I do look at the breakfast they provide they say American breakfast but that is a joke it’s nothing like a American breakfast The only thing American is the eggs they show this fantastic picture of the breakfast but I can assure you that doesn’t exist with the choice of breads I count six on the picture the choice you have… Read more
When I look at a hotel I do look at the breakfast they provide they say American breakfast but that is a joke it’s nothing like a American breakfast The only thing American is the eggs they show this fantastic picture of the breakfast but I can assure you that doesn’t exist with the choice of breads I count six on the picture the choice you have is just wholemeal bread but nothing else The room and shower are very small but that’s okay but what I did not like they just give you a cupboard to put your clothes in for a five night stay no draws for underwear when I questioned this I was told to live out your suitcase Then I was offered a family room upgrade with a room that had drawers for 1000 Bht a night Extra really The Price of food and drinks in the hotel is ridiculous a bottle of water is £2.00 I do understand that hotel prices are more expensive Never been to a hotel that does happy hour between 12 and 1 o’clock 😂 I think 5 to 7 is the norm When I spoke to the manager about the photo that they are advertising for breakfast he told me that’s is for a evening menu 😂 bananas 😂 It’s a nice hotel but I think for a 3 Star they still have long way to go to catch up with other 3star hotels Which I’ve stayed in Wi-Fi and TV absolute rubbish On the positive side staff are very friendly it’s a clean hotel , It’s a family hotel lot of children Read less

3-stars hotel not so bad for the price we paid. Booked a family connecting room, rather than a family room with bunk bed. Basically more space and get two bathrooms and double the space.

3-stars hotel not so bad for the price we paid. Booked a family connecting room, rather than a family room with bunk bed. Basically more space and get two bathrooms and double the space. No frill check ins as I am a silver member and everything is prepared even before we checked in. AC already on when we got to our room. Room seem to be empty for a very long time already as there are dozens of mosquitoes in the room. Asked the front desk for a electric mosquito trap or something like that, they sent in a mosquito spray (are you kidding? I am not gonna spray the room with my family there). There are a couple of pools but they seem small, but again this is a budget hotel. Nothing to write home about the facilities, but they are there and seems properly maintained. The beach and the water though is bad to worse. The sand is coarser here than say Chaweng beach. The water is cloudy with algae, every step you take in the water feel very strange, squishy and yucky. The more you step the cloudier the water around you get. Well basically un-swimmable. Beach is very coarse and basically not so nice to hang out at. Walkable to fisherman village via the beach. As there are road work outside of the hotel, the pathway is unavailable, unless you are brave enought to fight with trucks and passing cars. The road work also cause constant traffic jam if you try to get on the road. Read less

Was a nice holiday. Traffic was little hectic due to lots of roadworks but that’s not the hotels fault. Breakfast was good. Rooms are very basic but that’s what you paying for. We had our 2 kids and we got an inter leading room for a great price. Pool area is nice. Beach is nice. Close to fisherman’s village as well.
