they have nice big swimming pool between independent bungalows, and that it just the best you can find.. staff was very friendly, but some of them were quite out of english-language... still the place i would recommend for everybody.. families, lovers, etc..
Hi all, just a small review for the kib resort. I read some of the reviews before staying here, but thought things may have changed from 2014 , how wrong we were horrendous three hour journey from Phuket thena ferry to the island, not knowing this, cost us more money. We paid £585 for a private villa for 8 nights but stayed one couldn't wait to leave. Didn't even unpack cases. We were the only people in the resort. And there wa nothing todo at all. We had a plunge pool but was so disgusting filled with green moss we didn't dare risk going in, chairs were broken, tiles missing from pool, floor slates missing. Need I go on. This hotel is a accident waiting to happen. Disgusting breakfast. Would never recommend this hotel to anyone. Internet connection not good for those of you who would need to use it. StFf weren't bothered when we checked out after only one night. DO NOT waste your hard earned money booking at this hotel . I am putting in a compliant to agora. Not worth the money we paid. I have pictures but cannot upload until we arrive home. Hope this helps.
We booked for 5 nights. We stayed for one. Run down, felt derelict. In fact if I hadn't been really ill from food poisoning we wouldn't have even stayed 1 night. All poor reviews on here are accurate, but times them by 100. Breakfast was disgusting, I managed toast and water. DO NOT STAY HERE, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY
Do not stay at this place. The pools are dirty, not to mention children-pool witch is dark green with dirt. Shower is also green with dirt. Garden is far from maintained. Breakfast can make you sick. They serve 2 dishes of some kind of meet, witch is not heated. They simply removed the heaters.No wifi in room, TV didnt work, 50% of lights not work. The cleaning of the room was the only ones doing a good job.The reception is NOT open 24 hours. When I needed help, I had to wait for 4 hours at night. Spa is closed and runned down. This place is unfortunately totally out of control when it comes to run a hotel. This is a joke. Don't prepay like I did.
Very quiet and clean beach. Full of retired couples. The room is nice and clean with outdoor shower. The only problem is water. Water is seemed like well water , with leave rusty stain on your cloth. Hot water is difficult to control , only too hot and cold water. No wifi , even telephone signal is very low strength. Pool is dirty , water is not circulated and treated , lot of sand and dead insects. Breakfast is not variety and low quality (ham,bacon,suasage) , only Thai food help us to survive for 5 days. Not enough staff , only one at reception and two staffs at restaurant. Looks like family own operation. The only good things are the beach and its location where is only 2 km from the pier.
I love it. They serve you with friendly like thai style. i suggest the villa room.The villa have a big toilet.the dressing room is in toilet and garden view with open air. the wall of toilet is glasses you can see the room. you can relax in front of the room. But television not work i love private beach and swimming pool. They have white and soft sand. You can sleep on bead (sunny). The restaurant is have beach view.
Pros: convenient location, beautiful beach, nice hotel territory, friendly staff Cons: all the rooms we have checked had some problems - no hot water, not sufficient water pressure, leaking sink or shower, not working lights, etc. while being friendly, staff hasn't fix our leaking shower in 6 days. the breakfast is awful (imho) unless you like room temperature bacon, baked potatoes, beans and fried tomatos. no kidding. if you wonder why everything is cold, staff puts something like candle underneath the pot, which doesn't help the case at all. the only accessible wifi point is at the reception. be prepared to go there and sit in the lobby if you need internet. electric plugs of mobiles and laptops fall out of electric sockets. a creative approach is required to charge devices. bottom line: it's the small things, which ruin otherwise nice experience. unless we hear that this has changed, we'll stay elsewhere when visiting Koh Kho Khao.
Everything about the place is wrong.. the location it says khao lak, which isn't. It's around 40km away, it will cost you around 700baht one way to get there... Sleeping was a nightmare, as the toilet flush leaked allll night long. No hot water, dirty bath. The beatch was quite nice( apart from a dead rats, or wasn't quite sure what it was..) but it feels like there is no one alive, it's tooooooo quiet. We booked 5nights stay, and as soon as we saw the place, we had a feeling we might have to find something different and get our money back... So we did the next morning, but we had to forget our money, as that l lying receptionist promised us to sort us out. Anyways to put it in short : wrong location, very wrong staff, hotel feels like the home for retireing people... Never again !
We were looking for hotel in Khao lak, but not 30 km away from Khao lak, so main thing is wrong location when u trying to find a hotel in area u want to stay. From Khao lak u have to take a taxi, it costs around 500-600 bats, after u have to take a boat, and after taxi again. Main receptionist was very rude, with a very fake smile. We booked a room for 5 nights, and we run away after our 1st night!!! This hotel is in the middle of nowhere. Its nothing Thai. Dead place. Retired people only. Broken toilet, and showers cold water only. Wifi in reception only. One bar where u can have food in this area. Food horible.. we run away from this place. I emailed to manager and Im still waiting for his/her attention.. worst hotel and place in Thai ever. I just waisted my money, time and nerves. No recomended at all.
Munch come. It is holiday in my dream. rest and relax holiday with maximum enjoyment of the sun. nice and friendly personal.The room had a reasonably prizes mini bar e.g.bottled drinking water for same price as in the grocery stores.
