The beach 'cove' is fairly private and has a nice beach and view, especially from their restaurant. The pis's were a drawcard with the large swimming pool between the restaurant and beach. Staff were helpful and polite. MY room was spacious, near another public swimming pool closer to their lobby. Air con was fine, sheets etc were clean. Free shuttle bus to Chawang Beach (more lively). BUT
It was tricky to get too, then the first thing I noticed heading towards my room, was the dilapidating state of other 'bungallows'. Rotted roofs, some of their small 'private' pools, empty, except for green algae. Poorly lit 'goat track' to get to beach or restaurant. The shower was cold - luke warm, just like the food in the 'warming covers' at each breakfast. Only two choices for meals, here or the Wood House restaurant nearby, both meals ordinary ( no wonder guests had scooters). The water in my room smelt, the toilet bowl was stained and the bath area was in poor condition. There were no power points or light switches next to bed, the couple of power points that were there, were loose and badly located.There was 6 cable TV stations , no English movie, watched RT and AlJazeera's news. I regret paying 1600B per night, for what I experienced. Ok,if spending one night, sightseeing different locations, as their accomodations needs a lot of work (renovating).
The beach was ok. The pool was ok. The staff was great, friendly, spoke good English and were very happy to assist with any requests.
If you like being secluded and away from the town and civilization, then this place is for you. Unless you rent a car or bike, it’s at least a 15 min walk to get something that is not overpriced. A few things to be aware of is that one of the rooms we booked did not have hot water, at all. The other problem is that there is something in the water that made our fingers turn orange and eventually black after a few days. Only after we left and went to a different city, did that go away. The water smelled like metal for some reason. All our relatives had the same problem with the water. One of the rooms they gave us had a very smelly bathroom, so unbearable, that we asked to change rooms. The staff was great, spoke good English and were very happy to assist with any requests.
Great place to relax with your couple or family. Is a little far from Chawen, but the hotel offers a free shuttle there. The staff is very helpfull and breakfast is good.
Far from the town. The bed was hard and the bathroom needs improvement.
The hospitality of the staff.
After an up grade accomadation was great.
