Amazing experience albeit too short. The team at Sofitel was outstanding, Khun Poppy and Khun Christian made sure our stay was unforgettable and having the cocktail hour in our room was as nice if not nicer as having it in the lounge. While we did not get everyone's name it is fair to say every team member we interacted with did a fantastic job.… Read more
Amazing experience albeit too short. The team at Sofitel was outstanding, Khun Poppy and Khun Christian made sure our stay was unforgettable and having the cocktail hour in our room was as nice if not nicer as having it in the lounge. While we did not get everyone's name it is fair to say every team member we interacted with did a fantastic job. The poolside room was both very well designed and extremely comfortable, having breakfast on the terrace was a delight. Will definitely be back for a longer stay. Read less

I was thoroughly impressed by this resort. From the initial enquiries which received swift and informative replies to the service we received throughout from the friendly and very welcoming staff, I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Nothing was ever a problem. I chose this resort based purely on the kids (and maybe the golf for me!) and we were not disappointed. I stayed in a family room with my 2 children- 8 and 12y.o. The room itself was huge with really cool bunkbeds and amazingly comfy king size for me! The kids had a ball and loved the activities and kids club. Pamela was fab (thanks Pamela!) and made a really strong bond with my youngest making her feel at home and looking after her really well. The oldest was also catered for with a PS4s for the older kids to enjoy and various fun craft activities. They loved the Wisbit and kayaking/ paddle boarding in the pool too. I don’t think I have ever seen such a big pool! The kids loved the fat bikes- which were great on the beach. The activities team were all extremely helpful. The Activities Manager, Christian, introduced himself on the first night and for the entire stay he made sure we were looked after. When I was the only one who turned up at the resort’s golf tournament. Christian went out of his way to make time to play a round with me. When I mentioned my oldest daughter played tennis he organised a match with himself and the resort’s tennis pro- Wee. A big thank you to you and your team, Christian! Read less

I was staying there for 3 nights as I have to change my plan suddenly from Huahin to drive to Krabi. Understand that it is Songkran long holiday so maybe the staff is too less to service all.

I was staying there for 3 nights as I have to change my plan suddenly from Huahin to drive to Krabi. Understand that it is Songkran long holiday so maybe the staff is too less to service all. Pros : I love the activity and pool there , It should be the best activity of poolside as I ever experienced and I can spend my time with my kid , we enjoy that. Cons : Service : As a gold member , I need to ask for the welcome drink voucher and no any other benefit explain , also check in is quite slow Housekeeping : I notice that they didn't clean up the minibar area that my mum drop some sugar there and the 2nd day , they cleaned up and accidentally broke the ceramic glasses , they out without cleaning , all broken pieces there, I have to ask her back and clean it cos it can make my mum and my kid injured. I dont know if I was not there , they will clean or not. I stayed in 5-star hotel and Its Sofitel Brand not a 3-star hotel. I didnt complain there because I only want to take a rest and spend time with my family , dont want to have bad mood to ruin my vacation. Amenities in the room : I am not sure that the loyalty that I paid there , I got normal amenities like that , I don't feel any privilege. Food taste : Food taste for me is not okay. I expected that as we are also southern people , Thai food there should be nice. But a bit disappointed. Maybe restaurant adapt the taste for foreigners In conclusion , I wont go there again if I don't get any super special price. I don't feel any privilege of being A+ member there too. Read less

We have wanted to stay at this hotel for some years and we were not disappointed in this stay. During the current COVID crisis the hotel is taking every step to keep the hotel spotlessly clean and safe for uts guests and we had a great time during our stay The GM and his team were very visible all the time by walking around and making themself accessible to both the staff and the guests, it was no surprise to us to see the positive results this leadership has produced The pool and various games, sports and activities are all excellent and the choice of foods met all our expectations. We would be very happy to go again. Read less
