We had high hopes for our stay as the photos looked promising and we'd had good experiences with Ibis and other Accor hotels in the past.

We had high hopes for our stay as the photos looked promising and we'd had good experiences with Ibis and other Accor hotels in the past. We were able to check in earlier than anticipated which was good as we'd just arrived on the island by ferry and we were vwry tired. We stayed in room 4119, a ground floor room with a sea view which we had paid more for. The first thing we noticed was the smell of damp. We tried to air out the room as much as possible but during the 3 nights it was there it never really went away. Bed was uncomfortable and itchy. I don't know if I was sensitive to the washing powder but I would wake up scratching. I've never had that problem in any other hotel. The pool was good, but not cleaned often enough. There were so many leaves in the pool I started collecting them myself seeing as it didn't look like anyone else wanted to do it. Breakfast was average at best but this suited us fine. The second morning the staff tried to charge us despite us already paying for breakfast. This resulted in us checking with the front desk, who confirmed we had paid, followed by another member of staff appearing at the breakfast counter and ushering us in without any problems. One night we wanted to sit on the terrace with some wine before heading out. We already had our wine which was gifted to us, so I called front desk to ask for some wine glasses. Front desk seemed confused and put me through to someone else, who told me "sorry, we don't do room service". All in all, we were really disappointed by our stay. The staff we encountered were friendly, but the hotel seemed somewhat unorganised. The room was showing its age and the smell was pretty unforgivable. Read less

Easy check in. Nice room on a ground floor facing the ocean and pool. Only one curtain and no sun blinds so you would need to draw the curtains completely if you wanted privacy. Breakfast had a good spread for THB 150++ / person. The stir fried noodles were one of the best I ever had. Limited car parking space right outside the hotel.

For what you pay, this place is pretty incredible value for money - it is almost a mini low key resort, which you generally never see for ibis.

For what you pay, this place is pretty incredible value for money - it is almost a mini low key resort, which you generally never see for ibis. The location is relatively close to fisherman’s village, it is either a ~15-20 min walk to the main part, or they offer a shuttle to the location. However while it is a little further up, it does mean the location has space, it’s quite peaceful and is right on the beach which is a nice touch. The breakfast is a little basic but more than good enough for what you pay. Food offering and drinks are pretty cheap, good value and food actually quite nice - they even have a small BBQ and skewers on offer during the day by the pool. They also have paddle boards and kayaks available to rent for 100 THB for 1 hour, which is nice to offer, but for the price it is they might as well just offer for free like most hotels! Overall for a low key, low budget weekend was perfect and would be more than happy to stay again Read less
