Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My husband and I both had iced Thai tea and eggs Benedict for breakfast. Our bill came to $970. Baht. The tea came in an 8 oz glass filled with ice which was definitely not worth the 170 baht per drink. We have paid a...lot less then that for twice that size all around the cape panwa area. The eggs Benedict had no taste and talk about shrink flation. The so called English muffin was hard and very difficult to cut and instead of Canadian bacon they served it with regular bacon, a couple leafs of greens and 1 grape tomatoe cut in half. The meal was definitely not worth the price we paid. Will not be going back there.More

We dined at The Cove twice during our stay in the Cape Panwa Area. The menu had a good mix of Thai Asian Classics along with traditional western beach snacks. On both evenings we had the Chicken Pad Thai, which was incredibly tasty and flavoursome....Menu was reasonably priced and service was great.More

The location is very nice - beautiful view and relaxing atmosphere. But nothing more… the menu is not exiting.. prices are too high for the that quality.. We’ve been here for four of five times since we lived in the hotel nearby, and every time...it was dirty tables, long waiting and not perfect food.. at the same time the waiter Tui with very bad English tried to explain something in a very strange way… seems she working here 24/7 and very tired.. The strangest thing after inadequate prices (I’m not against high price but for a good quality and service) was very long waiting for fish .. we ordered grilled fish and they cooked it for 50 minutes, and bring us not grilled but baked fish… 🤦‍♂️ So.. I do not recommended to eat here - only drinks and pizza..More

Spectacular location: at the beach, under the trees, with fantastic views on the sea. Peaceful. Quality is mediocre to good. Service is bad, including the English manager. Biggest issue: super expensive, especially for the quality and service provided. Really a pity, as this place could...be magic in all senses.More
