Loved this hotel. Not the smartest we have stayed in in the area by any means and maybe getting a little tired, but it was comfortable and friendly, wonderfully located right on the beach and our room was light, bright and spacious. It smelt a little damp at first (maybe not used for a while?), but that was gone after 24 hours, and sea views were sensational. Breakfast was very good as was lunch which we had there once. Only downside was no wifi in rooms, but you could get it free in reception. We had a car so distance from town not a problem for us, but a bit too far to walk and taxis in Khao Lak are a rip off. But I still give it five stars even though it's not 'perfect' as I loved staying there and although over the years we've probably stayed in a dozen or more very different hotels in Khao Lak, this is one of the few I would be very happy to return to.
