And what kind of people there are more friendly and helpful I have never seen! They will always help and answer, and with a sincere interest in the situation! My husband and I and 2 small children were looking for a quiet hotel near the sea and good food (since I have small children, this is very important to me), and of course not very expensive. We came to one agency, unfortunately nothing suited us to the 2nd one... But then my husband stumbled upon the link of the EasyTime Resort 3 * hotel and we liked it so much that we decided to go on our own: we booked a Family Villa through their website (10 days for 4 they cost us $ 500 with breakfast !! ! - they gave us such a discount because we booked in advance), bought tickets and took out insurance.
So about the hotel: a small cozy hotel of 17 charming villas, immersed in a garden of magnolias and orchids, a clean pool, a 4-minute walk from the beach (white sand, beautiful bottom) and most importantly a restaurant... we did not expect from 3 * that there will be such delicious and varied breakfasts (buffet + hot menu), and in the evening we went there to eat all sorts of Thai yummy and even real Italian pizza, the children were delighted!! ! and most importantly, there are few Russians... quiet, comfortable, calm.
And what clean and beautiful rooms. . .
In general, I advise everyone!
If you have any questions I'll be happy to answer
The hotel is small, even small, on the territory of about 10 houses, they have rooms (1 or 2 rooms in the house). Everything is green, the territory is very well-groomed. There is a restaurant that serves breakfast (not a buffet) in the morning: you can choose one of 4 breakfast options with a different set of dishes from the menu, for lunch and dinner the restaurant works on the menu (there is Italian cuisine and Thai). Everything is very edible and, in principle, not expensive (but more expensive, of course, than anywhere else in a traditional street Thai eatery). We spent about 2000 baht per day on food in this restaurant.
All photos of the hotel are true. We occupied a regular room: it is not huge, but large enough to accommodate 3 people, there was enough space for everyone. There are two rooms in the room, the first one is a walk-through as soon as you enter the room, behind a glass door and a curtain the second room is a bedroom with a double bed. The first room has a bed (more precisely, something between a bench and a bed, but a child or an adult can sleep on it), there is also a TV (there are a couple of Russian-language channels). Air conditioning (individual) in a room with a large bed, in the first room there is a ceiling fan. The room also has a minibar, a combined bathroom (as we understand it, there is no hot water on the island at all, cold water is heated by individual boilers, so the water is rather warm, but due to the climate, there is no need for hot water, warm enough).
At the entrance to the room there is an open veranda (or a balcony if it is a room on the second floor in two-story cottages) with chairs and a table. It is very pleasant to sit in the evening.
The room was cleaned daily, towels were also changed. Cleaned clean (Thai style: sweep the floor, put everything in its place, so that it would be beautiful. The floor was not washed every day).
The pool is small, clean and very warm (this is rather a minus).
The hotel has internet (free of charge), if necessary and by agreement, you can use a fax.
The staff is friendly and very polite.
Now about what you need to know if you are going to this hotel: the hotel is located on the second line, about 5 minutes walk to the beach along the path (at first it was concreted, then just a path through a coconut grove). The beach is practically uninhabited (there are several hotels, but there are very few people, there are a few locals who gather shellfish in the evenings) and does not have all the attributes of a beach holiday (zaniki, sun loungers, etc. ). Frequent low tides (at least during the period when we were there) make it actually unsuitable for swimming (although you can of course walk along the shallows of 200-300 meters, but this, so to speak, is optional).
There is practically no civilization around the hotel (in the sense of shops, eateries, etc. , etc. , only hotels (same small) and local houses (there are few of them and they stand separately, without interfering with rest). The hotel has a minibus for an additional fee can be taken to Tesco or any other place. There is a motorbike rental nearby.
In general, the hotel is intended for a quiet measured rest far from civilization.
