Never would we have dreamt that we are willing to forgo ~16,000 thai baht for room booking and search for alternative in the middle of the night.
It was fine when we checked into rooms 6401 and 6402. Though the rooms and toilets were dirty, we decided to live with it. After all, we had already paid for the rooms and had some indication on what to expect from previous reviews. The mosquitoes were unbearable. Nonetheless, we got some mosquito coils from the walking street during our dinner and prepared ourselves for the night.
The real disaster came when we went back to the room after dinner. There was a swamp of flies in the room and on the bed even though we have locked the door when we went out. The shower area in the toilet was the worst. There was a colony of big black ants crawling around. There was no way you could have went into the toilet.
My 2 year old was terrified, crying hysterically at the corner of the room. We didn’t sign up for a stay at the amazon forest. There was no way we, or my son could have stayed in the room.
We went to the reception and request for a change of room but was rejected, the excuse being that there no rooms available. Clearly if you looked around the whole day while we were there and at night when we returned, you would have agreed how deserted this flophouse was. Subsequently we even checked booking.com and there was still an available room at this place. A bad lie is just not cool.
After rejecting our request to change rooms, they sent a staff to our room armed with 2 cans of Baygon. There was no way we could continue to stay so we started calling other resorts for vacancy. And very fortunately, we found ten moons resort.
To be fair, we didn’t had any food or use the pool so we cannot comment much on the public amenities. But the condition of the room was not live-able, especially if you are traveling as a family.
Stay away at all cost.
