Old rooms, uncomfortable bed, good location
Location that's all
The rooms are very old. The lifts are extremely slow. It takes ages to get inbyour room. Food is edible. Very close to the beach.

Very nice hotel in a beautiful spot
Staff were always helpfiul, room is very comfortable, wifi works well
We had a great few days in lovely Kata at this hotel. Recommend to ask for a room close to the front of the hotel as we were right at the back and had to take 3 lifts + numerous stairs every day just to get to our room. Other than that the ammenities were lovely, staff were helpful and location just a few mins walk from Kata beach.

Excellent Resort!
We loved staying at the Chanalai Garden Resort! Fantastic location with ocean views, great pools, fitness centre, restaurant and fully equipped, modern rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend staying here!

Ups and downs
The greeting on arrival. Swimming pools are very clean. The gym is fully loaded
After our greeting the rest of the visit went a bit down hill. The staff are lovely but always have an answer that doesn't mean anything. The beds are hard and ours smelt of sweat even after we had them change the sheets. The location is very handy for many shops, bars, restaurants and the beach but the road is very dangerous. Not the hotels problem. All the roads in kata beach are the same. All in all we had a pleasant stay but don't think I would choose kata beach again. If I did go back there I would stay in a different hotel. I think I could do better for my money

bad details
swimming pools, views, proximity to beach
From day one many issues. The air conditioning broke, they fixed it, and it promptly broke again the next day. We switched rooms and that air conditioner broke repeatedly. Ants in the bathroom. Power outages (short-lived but somewhat frequent), poor wifi connections, room service with items stated as ingredients that weren't in the delivered dish, and a constant response of "we'll call back in 10 minutes," which never occurred. Most of all, this is not a main area in Kata Beach, so walking in a narrow and highly-trafficked street is required. Very dangerous with small kids and strollers. Some managers and staff offered freebies to rectify the problems, but the problems kept coming. NOT a 4-star, and barely a 3-star resort.

A Little Rundown
Service Staff, View and Room Size
The reception staff who checked us in and brought us to our room was friendly and very helpful. The room was really big and we had a great view of the beach however it's obvious that the hotel requires an upgrade, the room furnishings were tired and worn out. The bedding was clean but slightly stained and frayed. The front half of the carpet in the lift (closest to the door) was worn away. Breakfast offering by the hotel was simple/basic and cost twice the same offering at a cafe just outside the hotel. For the price, I would not return. Stayed at a hotel in Bangkok for 1/3 the price which was a lot more comfortable.

Good for yong families
locations, price and comfort
Fun, comfortable and friendly. In room dining was great, although breakfast buffet was a little underwheling. Stayed for a week, but the kids club was being rennovated while there. Maybe next time...
