PROS - The hotel is a great location for people who don’t care about the full moon party - walking distance to the pier and the night market with super delicious and cheap eats. You can also walk the other direction for great sunset views and if your lucky even find secret beach. The pool area is on a river and really nice (although the wooden bridges overlooking the rivers are rotting and unstable.
The staff were friendly but the hotel is a bit run down. The internet doesn’t work outside the lobby - they moved us rooms (from double to twin) to a room with “better wifi” but they should just advertise it as lobby-wifi only as we never got it to work. The beds need to be replaced - they are very uncomfortable. In the double they were better, but one of the twin beds was so old and hard - you could literally feel the springs. We regretted moving rooms. The TV in the twin room also didn’t work which was frustrating: my bf was feeling sick both days we were here, so spent a lot of time in the room, which was wifi/TV less and had terribly uncomfortable bedding. The only time we tried to order from the hotel restaurant they said they didn’t have food and sent me into town to get something.
Overall, if you don’t care about wifi/tv and aren’t a picky person with hard beds, the pool, location and staff were great! However, I can't recommend it as I would not stay here again.
