Great location hotel, easy to walk everywhere. Just a few steps to the lovely sandy beach and the street with a variety of restaurants, shops and massage studios. We had a lovely spacious room with large terrace and wonderful sea view. Daily cleaning and linen change. The bathroom and furniture are a little outdated, but it was very clean and...

I'm not saying you will get a luxurious experience at Benjamin resort, but a big, spacious room with AC, fridge, tv and balcony with a view for 420 baht (booked on Agoda) is simply some of the best value for money I have experienced in Thailand.

Stayed here because it was recommended by the Rough Guide to Thailand and I needed a place to check into on my first night. Usually the Rough Guides are spot on however, this was not the case here. The place is well worn out and the room was grubby, worn and dirty. I did not use the shower as the...

Benjamin resort is a beachfront hotel in the heart of kamala beach. The hotel is literally in front of the beach. You can enjoy the seaview from deluxe sea view rooms. Standard rooms are also very clean and affordable. Staffs are very friendly. Manager is also very attentive. Benjamin resort is suitable for family and individual travelers.Prices are very affordable.

We booked into this resort (of which the entrance was hidden down an ally). It is not fancy, but to get what you pay for was worth it...as we only slept here! We paid 500 Thai Baht per day for a spacious room with TV, fridge, aircon, free Wifi and cleaning service. It is situated on the seafront and surrounded...

We showed up with no booking and they took care of us well. AC, wifi in the room, patio, it was nice and it was right on the beach. The staff were very friendly and helped us find transport to Koh Yao Noi. You can rent a motorbike and book tours here as well.

Benjamin Resort / Hotel in Kamala, on the beach, at the end of the walking street. Perhaps the best location in Kamala. An old hotel, basic rooms but nicely painted and clean. If you are on the beach / beach holiday is a good and cheap place to stay, right on the beach and not far from the city. I...

Got a place in the back close the water. Great value, great view from our floor level balcony. Ice (Issa) from the staff helped us out a lot and everyone was very nice and friendly. Room was cleaned every day and the AC was cold. Best thing is location-run out door to beach or go out to "can do" bar...
