“Average Stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

We stayed at The Golden Beach in Feb 2012. The location is excellent. However, the hotel lacked in a few basic requirements. There was no free wi fi, nowadays this is a must. No face flannels, (why) ? No dressing gowns. (why) ? The staff for most of the time were friendly and helpful. good points are lovely view of the beach from the breakfast area and lovely clean pool. This hotel could be so much better if the small basics were rectified. overall though, we would stay again.

Friendly staff, spacious rooms, well maintained.... but the food...

DO NOT EAT HERE! My wife and I were warned not to eat here but we were too tired to walk far. In hindsight, we should have walked. I won't say anymore about it.

Other than that, everything was fantastic! We had new towels folded into different animals every day we were there. Our Executive pavilion had a view of the mountains behind us courtesy of a massive skylight over the entire bathroom. No bugs, to noise, no problems. It felt more like a vacation house than a hotel.

We were sent here by Andaman Sky Adventures and could not be happier with their recommendation.

Room Tip: Eat as far away from the beach as you can get. Also, try to enjoy some homemade Tequila from Mr. Lo...

This is a great little resort hotel. Each room faces the swimming pool and there are many garden villa's also. The location is perfect, in the more relaxed area of ao nang. it is a 2 min walk to last fishermans bar and massage area and 2 mins in the other direction to the main road. it is beachfront and the location could not be better.
the hotel front desk staff are excellent.
the breakfast is also very good, the previous post is way too harsh here. what more do you want, it's breakfast! they have fresh omelette, juices, cereals, thai food...it is more than adequate. i will criticize the food though in the restaurant for either lunch or dinner, their are far better options available in town...
the beds are a little too firm but this is a common theme in thailand i have found..
the pool is large and there are enough lounge beds and towels available.
location again is excellent, staff very helpful and friendly and is a really great hotel to stay at while in ao nang. if you are unhappy with this hotel then you are just an unhappy person...

Breakfast - Luke warm, average quality not much variety.
Executive Pavillion Villa - Ok but has a bed that feels like you're sleeping on the floor. The mattress is "rock" hard. Not good enough for the 8040 baht per night (US$270) price tag.
The best part of this hotel is it's location in Ao Nang. Would not stay here again for the price. There are better options available.
