Very comfortable room and clean, with amazing welcome set up on the bed by the housekeeping team, with lots of animal shaped towels and flowers. Breakfast is very decent for Ibis standards. Restaurant meals for lunch and dinner as well, as long as you stay with thai options. The beach is very nice and does not have this overcrowded feeling. Nice upgrade for Accor platinum members. What made my stay absolutely memorable is the highly professionalism, care, efficiency and kindness of a few staff members following an unexpected health issue I had. - Audy, food & beverage - Nicha, front desk supervisor - Tor, kitchen - Nat, engineer - Jaeb, front desk Those colleagues really deserve sincere recognition by not only the hotel management but also the Accor management for having shown unconditional care and service far beyond hotel and Accor standards. I recommend this property. Read less

I dont really know what I was expecting when this was sold to me but my first impression was not great, not bad, but not great. At reception, which was quite dull, the very pleasant receptionist explained the hotel was full but another room would be available in a few days time so we booked it. Just as well really as the room we were given is a 'family' room suitable for 2 adults and 1 child. It would be, if your child is very small and doesn't fidget as there is not a lot of room for movement in the tiny bed provided. Also, there is no place to sit and no table or desk and dont imagine you have wardrobe space as this is at a premium on a first come first served basis. Its tiny, so once one of you has hung up your clothes it's full. In fact I use the word wardrobe loosely it's a cupboard. Our room number 1315 looks on to bushes and is quite noisy with traffic going by, but as it only has a tiny balcony there is not a lot of room to sit out anyway. I think if I was the hotel management, I would put some luxurious furniture in this room make it a bit special and market it as a single luxury room. Single travellers always get charged that bit extra anyway so why not indulge them a bit? . Read less

Staff filled any request immediately. Room was basic and small. All facilities were great. Buffet breakfast was good. Close to fisherman’s village - walking distance. Able to hire a Scooter on site $300 BHT per day or take a bus $50 BHT.

Hotel is in a good location, the Rooms are cleaned each day to a high standard and the view is amazing.

Hotel is in a good location, the Rooms are cleaned each day to a high standard and the view is amazing. Not the best breakfast but always something there to have and also plenty of other options nearby. Pools are great, only comments would be not enough sun beds and the staff don’t enforce the pool rules. The quiet pool / area ( no noise or kids) was adopted as the kids pool during Our stay and the staff didn’t do anything about it. Staff aren’t super friendly or helpful but That said we would return as for the price of room and location it is hard to beat. Read less

Currently staying at this hotel and sitting close to beach but feel so strongly about my experience am writing this review right now! First of all the hotel is clean, has good air con although rooms a bit small, in a good setting with great breakfasts. We got up and sat beside the beach with an amazing view as wanting to relax for the day. By about 12 noon we moved our sun beds back just a few feet to move to the shade. At which point a whole noisy beer swilling family of Russians moved their sunbeds right in front of us, obscuring a lovely day and even placing themselves between a couple. When asked to move they refused and besides a number of guests not approving of their behaviour hotel staff did not seem concerned. I realise this sounds petty, but we came away to have a relaxing holiday and this has spoiled our day somewhat so feeling pretty annoyed right now! Have attached a picture of our idyllic view!
