Chulin K. Business travelers Thailand, May 20, 2015

Booked a king bedroom but was assigned a standard bedroom. The hotel charged up front like a budget accommodation. All other things are just ok, nothing is outstanding. I would give it a 3-star, not 4 as advertised. Hopefully, I won't be staying here again.

great view and food

the view was great and the location of the hotel convenient for family entertainment it being located along the beach and games at the mini town and along the flea market. The hotel is however very noisy and too busy at the lobby possibly due to its size and location as well as affordability.

very good hotel

good rooms, nice view and location
The hotel is located in front of the sea, in a central area of the town. markets and shops are at walking distance. Services are good and timely, and rooms are clean and with a beautiful view on the ocean. Eaing facilities are of good quality. Slightly overpriced.

Super udsigt og imødekommende personale

Fantastisk udsigt og meget imødekommende og venligt personale. Rengøring var fremragende og diskret. Ligeledes fungerede roomservice over al forventning, og der serveredes meget lækrer salater og andre små retter.
Meget imødekommende personale, gode restauranter. og fantastisk udsigt. Ligeledes var der meget rent og en udsøgt service på roomservice, der fungerede perfekt.
