Rico's is well located, everything is close by
However, it is now looking tired..bungalows could be upgraded and managed better.
If some money was spent repairing wear and tear it gas the potential of being a very good resort

Room Tip: Around 60% of rooms directly overlook very nice pool. Other rooms are very near pool

This is a very good place to stay in. We stayed for two weeks happily. We only had a aircon and plumbing problem the day before we left and the staff attended to us efficiently. Friendly and helpful staff.

We spent almost 2 weeks at Rico's Bungalows end of May 2015 and found it very comfortable and convenient. The beach is only a 5 minute walk away from the hotel and you can find restaurants and street food vendors just around the corner.
Most restaurants are ridiculously overpriced, but the street food is reasonably priced and delicious.
The bungalows are all situated around a big and clean pool. During our last night a pipe burst in our bathroom with was quite a mess. Fortunately there was a security guard at reception who helped turn the water off. In the morning they called someone to fix it which was done very quickly. The same day our air con stopped working and someone had to be called again to fix it (this all happened on a Sunday) which took a few hours, but then it worked again. We were even offered to move into another bungalow, as the air con couldn't be fixed 100%, but we declined, as it was our last day anyway and the air con was cold enough for us.
As we travelled in low season there weren't so many people and it was always quiet.
Would definitely recommend Rico's despite the issues with the water and air con (they were fixed very quickly without any hassle for us).

The Wifi was very good. The only thing we struggled with was the bed, which was quite hard.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to reception have better Wifi connection ;)

Been here 4 nights so far. Have no complaints. Low season, so there are not many people here. Quiet day and night. Pool is right outside your door no matter which bungalow you are in. Beach is a 5 minute walk away. The beach is nice, but not too impressed with Kata overall. The restaurants are way overpriced and the food and service below par. But Rico's is a nice place if you are here. Friendly staff. Clean room with some nice touches, like plates and cutlery if you want to bring in food from the outside. Towels for bathing and for the beach and pool everyday. Everything works fine, wifi, minifrige, aircon, tv, coffee kettle, etc. Bathroom is clean and functional. Comfortable bed. Nice pool. One reviewer complained of roaches. Haven't seen a single bug inside the room. A couple of mosquitos got in from opening and closing the door. If you are spooked by bugs and lizards the solution is simple...don't come to Thailand or stay in a 5 star white glove resort. There will still be bugs and lizards, but they will be high- class bugs and lizards.
