Rated 4 out of 5 by SimonTheTraveller Nice Hotel - Need to improve Pool/Beach Service
This is a very nice hotel with beautiful grounds with two pools. Large clean rooms with good hotel service. Breakfast was great with large selection from buffet to cook to order - choices include European, North American and Asian.
Several past reviews mentioned weak pool/beach service - actually better described as no service. As the hotel is a resort and promotes itself as one, we were disappointed that food and beverage service was not provided beach/pool side - one needs to go to the pool bar to order. As we needed to get up to order, we went next door to the independent beach side restaurant to get our food/drinks at a fraction of the cost. We would have preferred onsite service but not available.
We traveled to several locations in Thailand with good experience in communicating with hotel staff members. We respect that English is not their first language and this was not an issue with other hotels except with this hotel. We found the front counter staff weak in their English communications skills. We had a few mis-communications - nothing major just made it challenging explaining basic requests and for staff to explain hotel offers.
We used their onsite spa service which was very good. Yes you pay more than the beach side massage service but the experience can not be compared.
Overall, we do recommend this hotel and we would stay here again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pitch47 Nice place
Excellent location for beach holidays. Rooms are modern and clean with all needed facilities. Wifi in room is charged, should be free for this hotel category. Food in the restaurants could be improved and one or two more restaurants would be welcome (a grill - japanese food - etc.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by BKK46 I was expecting more from this hotel
- Very small breakfast area, same problem in other 2 Sheraton Resorts (Hua Hin and Pattaya). Had to wait for seating, even at early hours in the morning.
- Poor air conditioning, not capable to cool down the room.
- Not enough chairs at poolside or beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Audi32tt Krabi visit
Enjoyed our stay after sorting out the room problem upon arrival. Restaurants are pricey but some good ones just out side of the hotel.
All staff 100%
Beach and pools very good
Krabi is not an area I would visit again .previously visited Hau Hin and we prefer that area
10days are too many for the area

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kaye15 Beautiful property
The landscaping of this property is stunning! They have 2 very nice pools and a huge lawn covered with whispering pine trees. There are 3 restaurants onsite, to meet every taste. We mostly ate at the Mediterranean style Geckos, which had delicious food. There was a wedding while we were there, and it looked like the hotel did a fantastic job for them. This is also a great place for families as they have a kids club with activities.
