This is the first time I've written a review on a hotel as our time here at Mandawee has been much below average warning others away is a must!! THE GOOD: ........ The free shuttle to & from the hotel from Ao Nong beach front. The pool bar layout was reasonable but on our arrival the pool was in dire need of a clean (which took place the next day.) THE BAD: Check in was a fluster of paperwork, took 3 of them to do so. The room STINKS of damp, the ceiling is covered in mould above the bed. Upon arrival our bed sheets were dirty from previous guests. (After a trip to reception they were changed!) The 'mattress' is horrific - worst sleep for us both. The bed sheets don't fit the bed. There's an inch of dust covering every semi concealed surface (i.e the wooden slats on the doors.) There were ants all throughout the room. The black shower tiles are turning white from the build up of soap scum on the walls. Glass doors around the bed have never been cleaned. Tracks are full of dirt & grit. Hideous smell coming from drains in bathroom. Toilet is covered in stains. Housekeepers provided dirty towels and didn't change the sheets when requested. Large clumps of dust occupy the wall in the bedroom from lack of attentive cleaning. Don't even bother paying for the breakfast, on paper if finishes at 10 we arrived at 9.20 scraping the leftovers off the Bain-Marie's. The couple of cats which came over to our table consumed more of what was on my plate that I did myself. For an apparent 4 * hotel paying over 5000B I'd rate our stay here no more than 3/10. It was dirty, filled with unenthusiastic staff and lots of other people's hair. Pay a couple more hundred baht and enjoy your stay elsewhere as here certainly isn't worth your time or money as we have unfortunately found out.

Travel a lot of fun, Krabi, Thailand is very beautiful. impressed with mandawee resort and spa tour I trip to four of seven islands. For example, the chicken island,poda island ,rilay island and pranang island

We been booked this terrible 1 or half star hotel for a week and now thinking how to get money back. First we came here 2.3.2016 8 am, we landed 6 am to krabi and we were very tired of travelling. Asking our rooms, we have to wait for 14pm. I understand that but we were earlier send them email, that could we had our rooms littlepit earlier of that, no answer at all. No good wibes of that. Our resevation wasn't inclued breakfest,  thank god, spending 200bth for that wasnt worth it. Nothing to eat.  Some fruits (inclued ants) , white bread and thai food.  I dont get it?! After that we try to get to the city with taxi, (after walked 1km somewhere to get it), to spend some time.  Well,  we come back to the hotel to get our rooms and those were ready. We have superior rooms. I dont know what super is in this room. Nothing.   Back to hotel... Staff: doesn't speak english, only maybe 2 person speaks but not so good english that you could understand, hilarios -in 4 star hotel 😀 Location: far, so far away from anything,  you have to take taxi, tuktuk or walk  (what i dont recommed , becouse there isn't good lightning in streets,  and you can be hit by car , not so nice) Tuktuk cost like 50bth/way/ao nang/person. one little shop nearby  (1km). To the beach 3km. Hotel: dirty, old Mostly thai people no westerns. No information to clients in lobby , like maps or anything. No lockroom for luggage If you have to leave your luggage,  for waiting rooms, like we do. Pool: very dirty. Around Pool you can see there were cleaned it long time ago,  or never. I dont know. Sunbeds looks like they are in mold. Aswell bathrooms in the rooms. Gym: haven't been there yet but think to go push fittnes center in ao nang. We checkout from the hotel after 2 nigths, becouse the level of service was terrible. In lobby we try to get some copy of checking out before we were purpose to leave,   to get money back in home. But i think that peolpe in lobby just act stupid and they dosen't want to understand what we meen. They dont eaven been sorry for that we have to leave they hotel. I dont know what the hell the are thinking about 4star hotels look like If this is it. I been better hostel than this is. I dont recommed this "hotel" to anybody. I think there is everything wrong in this hotel. Pictures are from superior room

We spent two nights at this hotel recently. I requested two beds and they could not supply this and provided one large bed. The room was very dirty and we opened a drawer and found dirty used socks. The location is not very good as it is far from the beach. They supply a free shuttle bus to two beaches at 11am, 1pm, 4pm, 5 pm times. I booked this hotel as their web site stated free airport shuttle. The manager named Ron stated that there was to be a charge. I brought down my laptop and showed him the info on their web site stating the airport shuttle. He said he would look into it. I returned one hour later and he had gotten into their web site and changed it to read a surcharge for this service. This is no way to treat a customer. I can't recommend this hotel due to its poor location, ice cold eggs and poor breakfast offerings and lies from the manager about their internet description of the hotel. There are other hotels much closer and a better value than this out of the way, overpriced hotel!

This is by far the worst hotel I have stayed in. I don't know where to begin but let me preface this review by saying I was staying hostels before coming here so my expectations were already low. As a visitor in their country I should not demand they speak my language (English) but no one spoke English there; no points deducted for that but if that's a concern for you then take note. So where to begin... As far as I could tell the bed wasn't even a bed as in not an actual mattress. It felt like sleeping on a boxspring. By far the most uncomfortable "bed" I have experienced. The place was dirty.... You could clearly see that they never scrubbed down the showers or walls or anything. The bathroom wreaked from an odour coming up from the drains. It was close to unbearable. They did not replace our glass cups. In fact, they rewrapped our used ones in tissue paper that said "sanitized". How ironic. This was evidenced by the lipstick mark on the cup - did not require a keen eye to identify that. Everything was just dirty and the resort, if you want to call it that, is shoddily operated. I will not stay there again and will never recommend it to anyone. I am actually going to write Hotwire and recommend they remove it from their list of hotels. Worst. Hotel. Ever.

The hotel located a bit distant from beach but they have provided shuttle services. Quite at night for quality sleep in tropical rain forest, the resort around by mountain view, especially be hide zone.

We stayed in Villa 12 which was well-appointed with en-suite bathrooms to the 3 bedrooms, kitchen/diner, outdoor swimming pool/Jacuzzi, tasteful combination of traditional and modern décor, though have to watch the many levels. Breakfast/lunch and diner inclusive were good, though not exceptional. There is a separate fitness/spa with swimming pool and sauna (which needs attention - the benches are too low for the loyly (steam in Finnish!) to be effective and the door doesn't close properly!). The trip by motor launch around the islands and snorkeling was most enjoyable.

My friends booked me a birthday gift for my vacay alone . So i just take it. Was a long ride from airport . When i get to this hotel , i am having trouble to talk to receptionist as they are not really speak english, luckily i understand a bit of thai . The wifi on 5th floor very suck . I call them more than 5 time for that problem , guess what they are not understand anything they just said yess ! I am not very happy because i need to check my email , so i going down to talk at the reception until they understand , then they decide to change me to 2 nd floor on super deluxe room . Hotel very clean and more than u expect for what u paid . room very big and comfortable.

we booked by package for family of 6.we got to stay in the pool villa which have its own pool. we enjoyed the pool and it got jacuzzi too and the villa was spacious and nicely decorated. our package includes airport transfer, meals for 3d2nites stay, free shuttle to ao nang beach, thai massages for 6 persons, free flow of juices from their pool cafe, island hopping for 6, welcome drink and so much more. the trip was perfect, the meals served were amazing, their staff were polite and helpful, the experience of island hopping was overwhelming.

We booked this place for 10 days through Travel Mob because we wanted somewhere with a kitchen to make some of our own meals after almost 2 months in Thailand. We are checking out tomorrow, thank God. We honestly didn't know where the apartment was since Mandewee was not listed in the description or else I would have read the awful reviews. We were in the building with just the units/ not a pool villa. So honestly it was cheap. So, it didn't have a kitchen. Just an old rusty hot plate. Wonderful. The room itself is not so bad, very basic, but I bought 5 air fresheners since it smelled so musty. There is a lap pool on the side of the building. I don't think it's been cleaned since we arrived 9 days ago. It's disgusting. Cigarette butts in the pool. And, it's right outside the really sewer like smelling restrooms. One night about 10 people had dinner at that pool and at noon the next day all their dirty dishes were still there! Even though there were plenty of orange shirted staff hanging out all around. I finally drug a girl out from behind the reception desk to go look at it. I can't even stand to use the pool anymore. The other bigger pool is also disgustingly dirty. The gym- hot, dirty, and the main machine is broken. Again, cigarette butts on the floor. Of the gym!! An inch of dust everywhere. I was excited to have a gym but I went once and would not go back. And yet there's always orange shirted staff all over the place. What the hell they all do I don't know. But it's not cleaning! The whole place is worn down. Note to management, get rid of all the filthy dirty white plastic outdoor furniture. In fact, clean the place up! Even the lobby smells like a sewer. We knew it was far from the beach and town but we were ok with that having come from somewhere right on the beach. We thought we would cook some of our own meals (wrong) and hang out in the pool (again wrong since it's so dirty). One morning the coffee shop on site was closed. No explanation. There was no where to get coffee. Except the awful restaurant which took half an hour to make 2 coffees. I think the point is made. They should shut this place down, give it a facelift and a thorough cleaning. Inside and out. Even the facade is dirty.
