Noisy room, high prices, lots of fried food

Leicester, United Kingdom

The hotel is nice, but the food is not great (lots of fried food and many of the dishes are mostly just a variant of each other). Also, the day trips are exorbitantly priced as are all transfers. Be prepared to be a little exploited there. If you want to lounge out by the beach, it is gorgeous, but getting a sun lounger is a little tough, which is annoying. Finally, we had a problem with our room. Really poor sound isolation. We contacted the hotel 3 times about this and they failed to do anything about it, didn't offer us another room, never answered our email complaining and refused compensation via our travel agent. This after we paid a super high daily rate. Aspects of our stay were really nice, but I wouldn't recommend the place after this.

Stay away!

It is very isolated place and, unless you wish to pay 5 times as in mainland for food, drink, massasje, excursions and transfer, you can easily feel trapped here by unfriendly management. It seems that everything is governed by “the boss” that have strict rules and stuff is often unsure to give you an answer before they have talked to him. There are no other restaurants nearby, so you have to order meals in the resort. All prices are excluded local taxes, that are 17%. A red curry with seafood, as an example, costs 400 THB (included taxes) - and that’s one of the cheapest main dishes. Be aware that if you are arriving by boat from Phuket at Tha Bang Rong, then this resort is on a completely other side of an island and transfer by local taxi from harbor will cost you 800 THB. Breakfast is so-so: nothing special. In sum, not worth coming back- there are so much more in Thailand in this price range. Even on the same island or, try Ko Mook or Ko Ngai in Trang province!
