Location is a perfect ocean view . This is a hotel where the web page actually shows a true picture. Staff are great and rooms spascious. Nothing is too much trouble from the staff and was our most enjoyable stay whilst on holidays. Breakfast is like a feast and variety perfect for all tastes. Would go back and recommend to family and friends. Try the white orchid down the road for a meal as well.
Location - although there is shuttle bus services to the Kamala beach (10 minutes on the bus) hotel is located on the hill and the beach which is in walking distance from hotel isn't suitable for swimming. Also the prices in hotel is high and include additional 17% tax and service charges on top of the rates. English language skills of staff is poor.
The manageress was very polite and helpful however, her satff were a not so good!
It is quite a trek into Kamala. During the day they lay on a free bus service but this stopos at 5pm which is a shame as most people were going out in the evening to eat in Kamala.
Staff generally helpful and attentive, room pretty good for the price. Rooms clean.
Very unimpressed when free shuttle bus would not take us down to Kamala beach (after we checked out) so we could take a taxi from there. An obvious ploy by the hotel to make us use their taxi service to get us to our next destination. Pretty lousy treatment after staying with them for four nights and paying 20,000 baht. Though probably not the first hotel to use this ploy.
Room decoration - traditional Thai style and a clean room. Location - beautiful view of the Ocean and the surroundings. Restaurant - European style meals were delicious. Local tours - well organized with professional guides.
Breakfast - limited choice of European style dishes (also in the case of lunch and dinner in the Blue Cafe restaurant)and extremely slow or even inexistent table service. Internet - frequent disruptions to the wifi coverage. Communication - most of the staff had a poor understanding of English, rendering communication difficult. Entertainment - a lack of European channels and the TV set was rather old with poor image. Bathroom - the toilet seat was damaged and it took two days to replace it.
