Loved this hotel, lovely big pool plenty of sun beds. The rooms were spacious and clean, the shower was really powerful , the beds were hard but some how very comfortable !!! Breakfast was excellent the best selection and standard we have had anywhere. We stayed in B block on the ground floor overlooking the pool room B104 this is a great room to have. We also stayed in the executive suit EPB115 which was amazing directly in front of the beach. Well worth splashing out on. There are designated smoking places around the hotel, you are not allowed to smoke on your balcony. The staff are great nothing is too much trouble. This hotel does seem to have an issue with consistent wifi we had 3 out of 8 days when it wasn't working. Over all a superb hotel which we will be going back to in 5 weeks time.
Overall probably one of the best locations in Ao Nang”
Excellent, spacious rooms/villas in good and clean condition, marvellous pool and situated just at Ao Nang's most popular beach. What do you want more? 1. Less complicated communication in english, a big effort is necessary 2. Better organisation of the restaurant, as nobody seems to feel responsible for the guests 3. Pool chair reservation system has to be improved as many chairs are left blocked by towels most of the time The management is asked to get active, as most of the employees are really friendly, customer oriented and willing to give their best. In the neighbourhood of the hotel are many hotels under construction. Really not a good forecast for the value on Ao Nang as an attractive holiday destination!
Nice view, nice pool , nice rooms, nice restaurant, nice staff, nice place to stay, But wifi was very poor when working , works very little time in a day , staff without any help for this except some poor words.
Amazing location ”
A really nice hotel and almost touching the sand.Beautiful views from the restaurant terrace for breakfast. Breakfast was ok but always the same. Most of the staffs English was poor and it was hard to get your point across and if you asked for advice about anything they don’t understand and just laugh it off. The pool are is lovely...everything is an easy walk away . My room key snapped in the lock which I removed myself..I could not believe they charged me for a replacement ..the key was very thin in the first place and that’s why it snapped. I had dinner one evening..again the setting is beautiful but the waiters English was terrible and some of our orders were wrong. Another gripe is that the pool closes at 6pm . On the whole it’s a nice and clean hotel in a prime position and we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it
Good hotel in excellent location.”
Positives: Large Room (Deluxe), Big Bed, Nice Pool, Close to town center, Next to beach, Enormous Breakfast, daily room clean was good (always love an towel animal in Asia!), shampoo etc provided. Negatives: Shower made for very short people, pillows as thick as a suitcase, Fairly loud A/C, remote controlled light system is a pain, no lights in wardrobe making it impossible to see whats in them. Fridge never cold as room key cut electricity to it when not in room so mini bar always warm... Some towels provided seemed like they where moments from ripping as a bit thread bear. Would stay here again, as previously mentioned, the location is excellent.
Would recommend but with reservations”
Pros: right be beach, reception staff good Cons: stayed a few years ago and hoped things had improved but beds still very hard, frequently left without towels in room and have to chase for replacements, service in restaurant poor so ate elsewhere, in general Ao Nang is now overcrowded and will get worse with all the new build hotels being crammed in.
Swimming pool is open only until 6 pm - in a resort! Breakfast just OK. Check-in takes hours if there is a group. No lifts for older people - we had some in our group who had knee osteoarthritis and were allocated 3rd floor rooms without lifts. The staff is OK but inflexible. The location is great though - at Ao Nang beach. Rooms are a bit worn and in need of refurbishment.
Satisfactory yet disappointing”
Satisfactory as we were upgraded to a bungalow with nice space due to overbooked. Surrounding resort's environment is pleasant and the room is clean but slippery floor. All 3 of us were attacked by bed bugs bites, a few in the first 2 nights and gotten worse on the 3rd night, despite changed bed sheets. Breakfast selection was the same for all 3 days. Location is good as it is beach fronting and near the Ao Nang shopping area. For the same value, there are other resorts nearby within short walking distance to both beach and shopping area.
Brilliant location and excellent service.”
The breakfast facing the sea alone is worth half the price of the accommodation. Very attentive to the the little details. The in room slippers deserve a special mention. It’s the most comfortable ones I have seen in any hotel. In fact they were even better than premium ones I bought at Minnosa. Stay here at least once to discover what you are missing in Krabi.
Excellent place to stay on Ao Nang beach”
The only slight criticism I could make is the staff in the bar/restaurant were a little more observant they seemed to want to look at anywhere other than the customers were sat so gaining service was a tad awkward but didn’t not impact what we considered an excellent hotel and we would go back again without hesitation.
beautiful setting, facilities, good location, clean and friendly. ”
Nice resort, very clean and friendly place to stay. rooms are nice, especially the bungalow. good swimming pool and vibe to the place. The sea offers good for people that want to bathe, but not so good if your seriously into swimming and want pure clear and clean water to swim in, the boat traffic spoils the water.
Nice, clean resort with good breakfast, good location”
So I checked out many reviews of hotels in this area and I can say that I am glad I did and that I choose Golden Beach Resort, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was really good and one of the highlights was a massive swimming pool, good restaurant for evening meals watching the sunset over the water. If i can pick at anything i would say that the TV's in the rooms are all running on anoluge and not good reception, so all fuzzy and not many channels. the other thing which i i would say the biggest problem i found if your an avid swimmer like myself then Ao nang beach is not a swimmers paridise because of the boat traffic it makes the water not clear to see when swimming. you have to take day trips to some of the small islands or Railey beach to get perfect swimming session in. On the plus side Ao Nang does offer a nice vibe, good place to use as a hub, and nice evening walk along the beach, the shops, food outlets, and food market offers some of the best food.
We both loved our stay at golden beach. The staff was very friendly and professional. This resort definitely has the best location. It was unfortunate that during our visit the pool was under renovation , but overall we enjoyed our stay here. I would recommend this resort.
Clean room and friendly staffs. The swimming pool was under renovation when i was there so i could not clean up (a lot of sand on me after playing on the beach) before i enter my room. The staff pulled another hose from the kitchen for me to clean up. Appreciate your kind help and service.
Really nice place to relax if all the facilities are open ”
We have stayed here before but was very annoyed when Agoda did not inform us that the pool and surrounding area were closed !! Would like Agoda to respond to this as it really ruined our 4 day break , would not have stayed here if we had known about this closure !! Please respond Agoda !!
We had a very pleasant time at the resort. Upon our arrival we found in our room a bowl of fresh fruit. Nice location Right next to the beach. The house staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and large. The only set backs was the mound on the walls and under the air con. The room smelt mouldy and damp. They were renovation 2 rooms up from ours and the paint fumes were a tad overwhelmingly. Make sure you bring insect repellant for the mosquitoes especially if you want to sit on the balcony.
Beautiful views / Fab location”
Location is wonderful and views are stunning, including sunset at 6.15 each evening across the beach just outside the hotel. We had a beach front pavilion room which was tremendous and could highly recommend. Large/spacious and very comfortable bed. Bathroom was huge with separate bath and shower. Pool was lovely, fresh water and very clean. Breakfast was adequate and you could have as much as you wanted. Food at the hotel in the evening if you chose to eat there was very good and reasonable. All in all, would highly recommend on the pints raised above.
Best hotel ”
Hotel is well kept clean maintained rooms are very spacious good balcony view of amazing pool view Staff do there best to make you welcome but training is required, restaurant is good foods and walk direct into the beach for an amazing view I would fully recommend anyone to stay here as it’s very central to all amenities and this is my 5th visit back to the hotel Keep up the good work and add more training It will be a sought after hotel
Upon checking, requires to pay deposit 3000 baht which is not stated in agoda during place booking. Deposit amount is too much and such a hassle to me. Front counter staff dont know to speak english & not easy to communicate. Room also too many mosquitoes.
