Currently here with the family, 5 & 7 yr old children present.
This hotel is basic accomodation with the room having a fridge, TV, ensuite, 1 queen size bed, one 1 1/2 size bed, balcony and air con. The pool is great and refreshing after a day on the beach.
We arrived 4.00 in the morning, so 10 hrs too early due to flights, lady got up out of bed to check us in as the room was ready to go... Fantastic service !! They really look after you here and are on hand to help when you need it ...
Although it's not the Hilton, the personal service and the fact that is not part of an international hotel chain is really important to me when in Thailand - I would rather stay here than a 5* hotel as you still get the basic amenities, and the important things such as cleanliness and service, but still get personal experience from staying here and helping the local economy.
Staying here for 8 nights with the kids and as mentioned above there's everything you need. The breakfast is limited but adequate.
The location is probably the best you can get at this price with the beach being approx 40m away. The beach itself is perfect for families with the water being shallow for a good 75m+ great for kids. Beach sellers sell beer, coke , chicken, melon etc which are all priced v good. The long boats are busy from the beach - they have an allocated area - and yes, they are noisy... But then if you had a beach in Thailand with no long boats then personally it would not be the same!!
If you are looking for clean, reasonable priced accomodation in an excellent location then this is worth a consideration.
If you are looking for 5* Hilton style accomodation then this is not for you, if you have deep pockets and have a huge budget and don't want a tiny slice of Thai experience then good for you
Would I return? Absolutely, location, price, basic CLEAN facilities ... I will be coming back ....
