We loved this hotel, the staff and owners were incredibly welcoming, friendly and helpful. The room was good, the bed large and very comfortable, although the a/c was a bit noisy at night. The hotel is set on the beach and you can eat your breakfast watching the waves. The location to our mind was perfect, 2 minutes walk away...

As always a real pleasure to stay with Sue,Robin and all their wonderful staff. The Waterfront remains a real gem and we look forward to many return visits. The unexpectedly late rains meant a challenge for everybody but as always our hosts went out of their way to ensure another memorable stay.

On arrival the staff were fantastic and could not do enough to make us feel welcome. We were given a complimentary drink whilst checking in and our luggage was taken to our room. We had a very...

Firstly everybody was more than friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable with all necessary requirements. The small terrace and sitting area looks out towards the sea and the pool for that early evening aperitif whilst watching the sunset go down. The beach is only 10m away. Very handy for shops, bars and restaurants and especially the...

Great location in the fishing village as you are right at the end of the strip, away from the hustle and bustle but still very close! Enjoyed our stay as much as we could (illness)! Beach is right there on your doorstep which is lovely first thing in the morning! Shame you can't (not recommended) swim out the front, but...

Look no further. My partner and I stayed here January 2017. Met my wonderful friendly staff.Our room was very well equipped, spotlessly clean,the bed very comfortable. A totally relaxed atmosphere. We travelled all around Thialand and this was by far our favourite place. Will definitely be back. Jayne and Mark UK

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Family run, small, select and peaceful, yet only steps away from excellent restaurants, bars and boutiques.All rooms are beachfront and the view of the sea and outlying islands is spectacular. Many guests extend their stay, recommend us to others or return themselves, often to meet other guests who have now become friends. Its like coming home, they say. Lots of little touches to make you feel welcome including free pick-up and free internet. ... more   less
