Beware of price gouging at this hotel

When I checked in, I was told that breakfast was included for me, but when I went for breakfast the next morning, I was told that it was not included for me, and I would have to pay 500 THB (15 USD). Internet cost 150 THB (4.50 USD) per hour or 400 Baht ($12) per day. Ordering a movie cost 300 THB ($9). They also charge for music and games. When I went to the gym, I asked for the location of the water cooler. The employee replied, "Water?", I replied, "Yes", so he brought me a bottled water and said, "40 Baht". Note: A few feet away at the pharmacy outside, the same bottled water sells for 10 Baht. When I tried to bring a Thai friend to my room, security told me that I had to go to the front desk and pay 1500 Baht (just slipped the guard 1000 Baht to look the other way) The day before checking out, I asked if my taxi to the airport was all set... Without even checking, she said no and that I would have to pay 950 Baht to make these arrangements (even though a taxi from the airport to this hotel only cost 450 Baht). I went to a nearby place outside and made arrangements for 500 Baht (probably could had gotten it for cheaper, but didn't want to haggle for a few dollars).

I would imagine this is a great family hotel, but if travelling as a single I would definitely not recommend this hotel. There is a $40 charge for guests even if you sign up for a room for 2 people. This significantly increases your hotel cost if you are planning to have any overnight visitors. There are also alot of extra charges thrown in here and there which up the cost as well. Otherwise, it is a nice hotel, great location, very close to the beach. I found the pool setup a bit odd, but this was a minor complaint only.

Nightlife hint

Molly Malone's is right next door with great breakfasts and great staff. If going out, great starting off point with excellent drink specials (cheap pitchers) and very talented live band that takes requests.
