Very nice resort in a great location, clean and comfortable rooms. The people work there are very helpful. And there is A big supermarket just beside it.

I stayed at Al's resort for 3 nights in March 2012 and it was a very pleasant stay. It has one of the best locations on Chaweng beach and is surrounded by shopping, nightlife, water sports avenues, restaurants etc. In spite of being so central it isn't noisy at all and is a great mix of quiet and happening.
For the price Al's resort was great. The breakfast was nice, the staff was helpful and sweet and our room was clean and sufficient. The rooms are simple but have all the facilities such as hot water, tv, fridge, coffee maker, hair dryer and so on. We had the courtyard deluxe room in a quiet corner and it was very nice.
Both the pools are lovely and not too overcrowded. The hotel is right on the beach so swimming in the sea is a more attractive option :) - at night they set up tables on the beach for dinner. We booked a great tour through them - there is a great tour shop right outside the hotel which offers good prices for tours and airport transfers.
They don't have free internet but the rates are quite decent - 100 baht for the whole day.
Check-in and check out was a breeze and overall I would stay at this place again, specially at what it offers for the price. If you have a higher budget you can opt for a fancier place but if you are looking for a great option at a great price then this is it!
One suggestion to Al's resort management: The place does need a little bit of a face lift and more maintenance. The main grounds and rooms are clean but some areas around the back and front are not so clean - and stuff is lying around in plain sight which should be kept away. Also a clean-up of the beach in front would be awesome.

Last 2 nites here, thought it would be nice, but very rude absolutely not serviceminded staff, beds with springs broken, very hard to sleep due to this and loud firecrackers and music from the beach. It says free wifi BUT IT IS NOT FREE!! free in general area it says on all websites bookings but they want extra!! Cant recommend anyone not families, couples, nor anyone else, If you like a nonpersonal hotel just to stay at its for u, but the sewage smell everywhere on the grounds is enough for us, never again! Aldrig mer!

Incredibly rude and unqualified staff, poor knowledge of English. Prior to arriving tried numerous times to make inquiries either via email or telephone....My questions thru email were never answered and when somehow I managed to obtain resorts hotel number nobody ever picks up the phone. Small pool, dirty rooms and cigarette burned bed sheets. Yellow towels, noisy and vibrating aircon compressors. Breakfast is ok but even I happen to be cat lover there were too many felines mingling under our table. Yes, you read it right, stray cats inside the restaurant. Too bad such a poorly managed hotel occupies major spot at very beautiful beach. Make sure to avoid person called "Toon", first class idiot who won't be of any help to you.

We have 4 people in a group. For the first day, we paid 2 extra breakfast buffet and we don't mind paying it for another 2 or 3 days more. But.. on the same day, the hotel reception gave us 2 extra breakfast coupons for 2 days for free. Ya.. we are glad that the hotel did gave us those 2 coupons so we can use it on the next day.
Free coupons.. we used it on day 2. The waitress let us in after checking all those so-called-necessary-stuff. Alright, as usual.. pick up food and we are ready to enjoy our breakfast. Ta-Ta here comes the exciting part.. Waitress and Manager came to us and the manager raise up his voice telling us that their so-called-paperwork written we are only allowed to use 2 breakfast coupons (which originally obtain upon check in) and telling us that additional 2 pax.. we need to pay on the spot. okay, no prob.. we can pay.. but not after they yelling at us in front of public..
Why their reception gave us 2 free coupons since we can't use it! And why that waitress letting us in if they only accept "2-original-coupons"?
Well, we asked him to check with his management for this matter for issuing 2 free "unusable" breakfast coupons. And guess what.. they actually did not take any action of checking with reception or management or even talk with us in good manner. They are just embarrassing their customers in front of public..
