    Great hotel with good service.

    We had 10 days in a pool access downstairs room the room was a very good size but lacked a comfortable seating area.The breakfast was very good and plentyful we ate in the resaurant a couple of times and it was good and the prices were ok there are plenty of restaurants and bars around at a very good price We were there at the start of the wet season so most of the attractions were closing for the season if its quiet you want it is ideal then.

    The pool access room was fantastic. Having lots of pools meant that it never felt crowded when having a swim. Good location to night markets, bars and restaurants. Lovely staff.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This resort is superb. Although the New Year gala buffet needs major improvement and better management, this resort is excellent and exemplary. The staff are a credit to the Resort, they are without exception unfailingly polite and friendly. Everything about this resort is exemplary from the amenities, the clean tidy and modern comfortable rooms, the attractive and delicious breakfast buffet, and the appealing and inviting pool layout through the resort. It is very close to a gorgeous golden sand turquoise waters beach and the town with a variety of quality eateries. Any negative comments here are entirely inaccurate and unfair. This resort is quality and the guest experience superior. I wholeheartedly endorse The Waters.

    Didn't want to come home

    Our stay was fantastic. This is our second visit and will not be our last. From the moment we arrived we felt at home with very friendly staff where nothing was too much trouble The resort is well maintained and we wanted for nothing. Pool access room was brilliant, the service fantastic and exceptionally well priced. Great location with plenty of restaurants and shopping We have been traveling to Thailand for 10 years and The Waters has become our favorite destination

    This is one of the nicest resorts I have stayed in! My husband & I spent 6 nights in a waters pool room, with direct access to a massive pool. The room was exactly as depicted in the images, as was the rest of the resort. The staff are friendly, polite and professional. The location is close to a good range of terrific bars & restaurants, as well a just a short walk to the beach and markets. Breakfast in the resort restaurant was excellent. If you're visiting Khao Lak, definitely consider this resort - you won't be disappointed. I can't wait to return!!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Good but not great

    Pros: Staff are great, really friendly and nothing is too much trouble Breakfast is well organised and plenty of choice Location - close to the beach and the hotel also offer a shuttle service to a bigger beach which is more comfortable Cons Rooms are tired and need a lick of paint Usual story of people reserving sun loungers and then going the beach or on a day trip for most of the day Pool area needs a bit of a facelift Ants and mosquitoes in the room (this was sorted once I mentioned it Not all pool access rooms get any sun therefore kind of pointless really. Overall we had a pleasant stay with no real grumbles. Would we return? Mmm I think there are far nicer hotels for a similar price so whilst we would certainly return to Khao Lak I think we wouldn’t be in a hurry to return to the Waters (unless the price was right)
