Moved within few days but could recommend for a family or people who want to be off main area of beach/market etc.

                  Love the poolThe hotel is near a random pier that can get you to Railay quickly. If you stay in Aonang and want to go to the bars and shopping, you need to take a tuk tuk there and back. I enjoyed the hotel's pool. It wasn't fancy, but it was quiet and there weren't many people staying at the hotel for the day. If I was there longer, I would have taken a boat to Railay for the day. If you like to be away from the noise and chaos, I recommend this place.

                  Nice hotel not best location”

                  Close to pier to catch boat to Railey

                  Stayed here 3 nights in January, once arriving by boat to the Ao Nang, Krabi we realised it was quite far out from the main stretch, however we did read this from reviews already so weren't completely surprised. Hotel was fine, nice room with a nice view on balcony of the sea. There is very little in the area of the hotel, I would recommend renting a moped if you want to explore a bit more, we would catch the bus which is 5 minutes walk up the road and go to Ao Nang for dinner for 40 baht which was great! Last bus is at 7pm though, so a tuk tuk back is more pricey at 200 baht. We spent all our time over at Railey, the long-tail boat can be taken literally over the road from hotel at Ao Nammao pier which was great, you can catch one at anytime, Railey was so beautiful! Best beaches we've seen and the water was great to explore on kayak or snorkelling, lots of cheeky monkeys there too which you can feed bananas too! In Hindsight we wished we had stayed on Railey as that is where we spent all our time! Not as many restaurants and bars as Ao Nang but thats not what we were looking for. Lots more to do in the area but we ran out of time!

                  Pool is excellent!

                  Hotel is located well away from the Ao Naan area, thankfully,so its quiet, but is easily got to by local bus/ open back ute very cheaply. Lovely Owners, big rooms, great pool, all very hospitable and peaceful, will definately return. Almost hesitant to recommend , as dont want the place overrun!

                  Small quiet friendly hotel”

                  Friendly willing personal service

                  After the initial surprise that the 'views' shown on the hotel information cant be seen from the hotel, I settled in to enjoy a very peaceful 4 days here. There was nothing that the staff would not do to help. The hotel is small but has a great swimming pool and garden and they will hire a scooter to you for $6 a day so that you can easily get around. This is important since the hotel is in the middle of no where. At first i was in a 'sea view' room facing the road. Bad idea - lots of road and a tiny bit of the pier showing in the distance. Second day I asked to be moved to the garden facing room which was wonderful with its large private terrace and quiet sense of being in a natural environment. Excellent pool and jacuzzi which i had to myself most of the time!

                  tasteful interior decor, great clean saltwater pool, serene landscape

                  nice clean spacious room. the deluxe room comfortable enough for 4 of us (2 adults & 2 teenage kids)..nice of them to allow us all in without extra bed/charge. Location not so great (not by nice beach), right by roadside, but once you step inside, it will lead to beautiful large courtyard with nice resort landscape & big saltwater pool. Peaceful tranquility. Muslims guest can get halal food at nearby foodstalls around the corner. Would stay there again.

                  A Quiet Zone”

                  The hotel actually looked much better than the photos on the booking website, I was pleasantly surprised. There are maximum 3 floors of a walk up hotel, get ready to take a little stairs (and it’s nothing compared with the 1275 steps at tiger cave) up so it’s better to go without big bulky luggage bag. The hotel is far from the happening area but it offer shuttle to travel . I wasn’t aware the first night which I spent 350 baht for Grab car to Ao Nang and another 300baht or so back . Check with the front desk or read the notice display properly helps ! Remember to ask about the airport bus transfer which is 10 times cheaper than hiring your own taxi. I was attracted by its salt water swimming pool as advertised but when jumped into the small pool , I realised the water wasn’t salt water ? Or did I miss anything ? Hotel room was reasonably ok, with shampoo and shower gel provided but not tooth brush/ paste. I walked to the ao nam mo pier opposite for Railay visit.

                  Lets be real and say that it is not a 5star hotel.. but still, for the price it is a really great hotel. The pool in particular is really nice! The staff always available to help, and so friendly. 5-7 min by scooter from the night market, rented from the hotel and available in the next 30 minutes. There are also some restaurants just 2min away by walking from the hotel really nice. The breakfast at the hotel was really nice also! Its a great hotel if you plan to visit the area

                  A small hotel about 6 km away from ao nang beach. The hotel has a pool inside the compound which is kept clean also. There are no service at the pool so you have to get everything from inside. You can also bring anything you like to the pool so it can also be cheap. Hotel services are also cheap (food, drinks, trips etc). Hotel staff is nice and most polite. Some issues when speaking english but you will encounter that everywhere you go. I recommend to rent a motorbike so travelling will be easy. There is also a bus going to ao nang -> nopparat -> krabi town. The bus is cheap (20 - 60 bath) depending where you go. Taxi is also available instantly. Near by there is a pier that you can get into many places. Some local food shops and food shacks. There is a beach of sorts 70 meter from the hotel. a quiet beach gotta say. Traveling east at the beach you will encounter dawn of happiness huts / bungalows. Overall a cheap and joyable experience. Thou we found a discount to the hotel so...

                  We chose this hotel because we did not want to live in the hustle and bustle and we were happy with our decision. You can rent a scooter very cheap and is then movable - or you take the shared taxi. We were glad of the older, but big and very clean room. Especially we enjoyed the quiet and very nice pool. We booked breakfast, which we would not do next time, but individually get us a breakfast. But we will definitely come back!

                  I loved this place! It was very clean, spacious (they even upgraded me to a Superior room for free!), great pool, pool towels, beach mats, and best of all a nice restaurant on site with vegetarian food! Yay! It's a bit laid back which I love, and not in the main beach area of Ao Nang but very close to the pier for longboat to Railay if you want to follow the masses. The staff were so friendly and helpful I wish I could have stayed longer!

                  swimming pool, large room, sea view

                  I liked this hotel. I stayed in a deluxe room and it had a lovely sea-view. Great sized room and nice balcony. Tastefully furnished and decorated and nice quality feel. The best thing about this hotel is the pool. Lovely warm salt water and a jacuzzi. The beach in this part of town is not one you'd sit on, more just a pier, but actually this hotel is a great base. It is tucked away from the hustle and bustle but very easily connected. The bus to Ao Nang is literally on the doorstep. A 3-min walk to the pier and you can catch a boat to Railey beach and then walk to the other side of the island to get another boat to Ao Nang 100 Baht each boat and then a 30 baht bus ride home afterwards. There is also a convenience store only a short walk away. It is well worth a few hours exploring Railey beach. Wear good footwear if you want to climb to the viewpoint. The only thing I wasn't happy about was getting an electric shock from an exposed wire I hadn't noticed on the reading light near the bed. I brought it to their attention. Whether or not it was fixed safely by a qualified electrician I don't know!

                  Restaurant, amazingly clean pool & great staff

                  Our stay in Thip Residence Boutique Hotel was excellence. From the google map it seem to be nothing much to do during the day and night but don't let the location scare you off too much. Actually hotel is about a 5 minute drive to Ao Nang, public transport can accessible and are charge very reasonably 20-30bath per person. Tours booking were actually cheaper through this hotel rather than in Ao Nang, pamphlets or the internet booking. We had books our tour itinerary through this hotel and our family really enjoy it. Convenience location like Ao nammao Pier, Railay Beach, restaurant, mini mart can be accessible to it. We like the Thai food here, especially my kid like the massaman curry chicken at the restaurant own by the hotel. Try the massaman curry chicken if you had happened to be there. Strongly recommend for those who drive a personal car, secure and ample space to park your car. The only shortfall of the hotel has no lift access but the staffs are very helpful to assist you to carry your luggage up the flight. Welcome drink also provided during check-in. I would like to thank the lady owner of this hotel that provided extreme care for me during my stay when I was accidentally injured by Sea urchin. She had provided me all the necessary aid to reduce my pain and wound from infection. Gladly, I be able to drive back home (Singapore) safely. Will be back again soon…..Thank you Strongly recommend people to stay in this excellence hotel with Great staff and Owner.
