5 star location, disappointing experience. Ao Prao has a wonderful location and the restaurant and bar staff were all friendly, smiling and keen to help. The Hotel welcome was pleasant as was the reception - although the staff on the front desk
have only very limited English.
The room - a deluxe cottage - was a little tired and lacking in maintenance. Acceptable, perhaps, but in a 2/3 star place - not at the prices being charged.
The restaurant has a wonderful setting. Service and food were good but the prices were very high. Again, we'd have expected better for the money.
Two significant grumbles. The advertised internet access was a cable connection in the reception, no wireless. At 300 bht an hour (£6) Another frustration was the ferry. The first boat in the morning is at 10. We needed to leave by 8. No problem - we could have the hotel boat for 2000 bht - £40!!!
So we left a day early, disappointed. Nice place but not great value for money.
