          Hotel over booked. Given a room right next to bi s which I refused. After a lot of excuses from hotel reception finally ,after a lot of trouble manager turned up. Given a basic room and told I a couple of days, the room I booked would be available . Then more trouble started. Please when you book in take a inventory and photos of everything .if anything is broken you pay even if you don't break it . .

          Disgusting hotel”
          Picked this hotel for its location. Staff were rude and arrogant. Everything seemed to be a bother for them. Breakfast disgusting. Wasps around the food and were left there after asking many times for them to be removed. No variety. Pool good, had pool access room which was OK. Would never stay there again and would not recommend this hotel to others.

          The hotel location is pretty nice tucked away along the main road.. staff are friendly.The bed was HUGE! The pool was good and the hotel even provides mats n umbrellas for those who want to lay on the beach (3mins walk away) Breakfast was decent, and reception staff didnt understand my request for a late check out (kept saying yes yes ok) but at 12 she called the room to remind us of to check out soon. Overall its a nice affordable hotel thats close enough to the attractions Karon has to offer.

          Cons: -the air conditioner provides a constant white noise background; -the water pressure and temperature varies (although never cold or too hot) -the finishings are a little worn and dated. All the negatives fade away unless you are expecting a brand new or a five star hotel. This hotel has a nice pool, a varied breakfast (order ahead the first fifteen days of the month and buffet the last fifteen days) and a happy staff. The hotel is isolated from street noise. Some demolition going on nearby during our stay, but carried out within reasonable hours and without spreading dust.

          A bit older but kept in great shape. Spotless clean. Staff, especially at Reception excellent. The hotel has non smoking areas but smoking should not be allowed in the Swim Pool area where there are a lot of children and non smokers. Its a dirty habit that should not be allowed on the property of any hotels and restaurants.

          I was a bit dubious about this hotel as only had average reviews. I was more than happy with Whale Resort have no problem staying again has great location, nice gardens including fish ponds , well maintained grounds well managed hotel . Only negative was breakfast was a bit ordinary but on the bright side is served between 6 & 10 & noticed some people turning up at 5 to 10 a bit unfair on staff but no problem for them.

          We stayed in two villas at the back of the property. They were spacious and well appointed. We had an indoor tub and shower, outdoor shower and outdoor jacuzzi tub which were all very nice. The pool was perfect. We spent time in it every day. Location was great. There were plenty of restaurants steps from the hotel. Shopping close by (a very good market at the temple up the road on Saturday night). It was only two mins to the beach and local transport was always readily available to take us wherever we needed to be. Only suggestions for improvements would be general cleanliness (house keeping didn't do a great job) and to find a solution to the mosquito problem in both our rooms. There were swarms of 10-15 in our room every night. That was the worst part for sure. They did fix the gap where they were coming in but not till the last night. It seemed to slow them down but I would warn you to bring plenty of mosquito repellent to stay here. Breakfast was very standard with no variety. While it was included with our room stay, we felt that they could have done a better job. Overall the staff were friendly and it was good value. Combine that with a great location and it's a good deal. Only thing that would stop me going back was those pesky mozzies. Get rid of those and I would stay again without a second thought.

          Location, pool, staff
          The location of this hotel is excellent. Budget resort and 3 stars at best. There was no tea/coffee or soap but they did supply shower caps and cotton buds? I had to clean the bathroom thoroughly the 1st day there. Shower/bath was not clean neither was the basin, toothpaste all over it.They claimed to have a mini bar at market prices, when we enquired they told us no mini bar? The food/beveridge staff are lovely and were so excited to supply a cake for my birthday...so sweet. The pool is a large size and well maintained. In summary, you get what you pay for but I have paid a lot more for similar resorts. Apart from the cleanliness it was a pleasant stay but do not leave any valuables in your room, not even the safe.
