It smelled of ammonia, the shower consisted of a shower head on the wall without any Separation, the bed was quite small, the door stuck. There is also a bungalow directly at the entrance to the hotel. Information: almost everyone locals and tourist drives mo …  read hotel review

This was the worst hotel which we ever have met. We came from ko tao used a beautiful week in the haad tien beach resort we spend in the Varinda a Family room Booked, this was totally dirty, there were cobwebs everywhere (walls, ceilings, lamps). The linen on the bed was not clean (red marks), the pillows were so dirty that we were disgusted to dry with, the mosquito net was also totally dirty. The room smelled very musty. In the microwave were still speiserückstände from the previous. Also we had lots of ants (kitchen counters) Especially the bathroom was ... very dirty, there were cobwebs on the lamps down so i these on the head had. In the corners had some cockroaches in the cobwebs be caught. The towels were totally old and surrounding frayed. Breakfast fit exactly to the room. Since we had 2 weeks holiday before us had we decided this hotel immediately to leave, despite considerable extra cost. Not recommended! read hotel review

Worst hotel

We can only say, this was the worst hotel, which we Thailand have met. And we have already 11 hotels by. As a previous mentioned, who insects and musty rooms/beds and dirty bathroom like, is right at home here. The kicker was the breakfast less than nothing. (toast, honey, jam, a sort of fruit cereals and scrambled eggs) We stayed at the hotel only one night, because it was unbearable. Shit happens! Had a 2. hotel. But no matter, 1 week, we could stand. Not recommended! read hotel review

After i read all the reviews have, the decision notes. We go into the varinda resort! When we arrived, took my enthusiasm their course. So lovingly and quaint. We were really amazed. The hotel has absolute thailandflair and with no other are compared. If you know, is the issue of the bathroom for example a. You can not with the european standard compare. It is functional decorated and ageing. But for the toilet, showering and teeth deseam adequate. If you want a dream bath find me is in the wrong place here! We had a deluxe bungalow and the quality ... very satisfied. Only the bed was for us a bit too hard, but that's a matter of opinion. The breakfast was simply, there was toast with butter, two jam, honey, ham melon ananass, scrambled eggs, fried eggs, feel like thai food, cereals, milk bananas, rice, ham. So something for everyone. The way to the beach leads a steep staircase, but for people without gehprobleme to manage. However, we were after the 2 day too lazy, because we know the steps to the beach are back up and that was really more like sweaty. Thus we rented a scooter for 150 Baht during the day and everything was reasonable. We always went by the bill resort, the way was the shortest. The whole week we were at the beach where we are and umbrella at the black pearl bar had. There the whole day you can pool chairs when you drink. We have also always something to eat, which very delicious tasted. So people, if you want another hotel has, bay definitely the varinda with a great view for breakfast and of the pool. But important mosquito means do not forget. Where much green because many mosquitoes. But we had in the bungalow still a mosquito net, which not at all was bad. Another tip, you are really in 5 minutes walk in the midst of Lamai. Our laundry on the penultimate day (7 kilogram) to launder brought for 350 Baht incredible. So on to the varinda and lots of fun read hotel review

We had the varinda for 3 nights with breakfast and have already at the check-in in love. The complex is higher on a hill with a view of the Lamai-bay. The whole resort is with so much heart and skill decorated, that you really in the corridor by the complex on every corner stay and again and again new ' frills' discovered. Our room (bungalow 21 ' pomelo') was large, bright and clean, with ac, safety deposit box, tv, telephone, shower, a comfortable bed, refrigerator, and coffee/teeutensilien equipped. Also the balcony is lovely, with a lot of green and therefore ... hardly visible. Of course everything is a bit more rustic-doors are not plan, the showers can already times the bathroom underwater -but the charm of the plant makes it easily makes up for it. The place is over-admitted-steep and somewhat unstable stairs about minutes distance. To the beach we are always on the 'cafe del mar' walk, also about 5 minutes, so really not worth mentioning. The staff is really super nice, we immediately comfortable, everything very easy going, however not less efficient and organized! Would again and again the varinda book. read hotel review
