In general nice, bathrooms can be improved.
We stayed at white elephant resort for 5 nights, first 3 nights in room7, the showerhead is a bit broken so the water was going everywhere in the bathroom, the other 2 nights we stayed in room11, the room is better in our options, but one night we ran out of water, however it was fixed by the morning. The beds were very comfy in both rooms, the rooms are clean, the outdoor pool is nice, and the staffs are friendly. The resort has its own restaurant, if you stay at the hotel you can get 10% discount on food, you can also have food delivery service to your room. In general we had a good experience with this resort, just the bathrooms can be improved.

6/10 Good

You get what you pay for and this was average in most things but not expensive so no problem. The only downside was the service in the bar/restaurant in the evenings which was awful. Staff either go missing or are playing on their phones. At one stage i had to go the bar myself and ask the lady for a drink who then went to locate a member of staff? That said the food/drinks were ok and the prices reasonable

Enjoy a pool and pay less
Nice to have a pool at discount price. Clean and well-maintained and just back off the road so it is quiet for sleeping. Room is small but overall a good place to stay.

smelly and dirty bathrooms
I didn't like this place. We literally took just a nap at the Monkey Nap hostel and left. It was very cheap, but the room we were in smelled like Bengay or IcyHot cream. Someone had doused themselves in it. The bathrooms were not kept clean either, toilets were dirty. This place was a bit hard to find, on a small side road. I recommend other hostels in the area.

Not a good stay, go somewhere else
Cancelled our other hotel last minute to get this one because it had a pool and AC. Big mistake, didn't have a pleasant stay. + location is good, short walk to the Lonely beach, 7-elevens, Makro food and Night foodmarket + had lovely family owned, cheap restaurant right next to the resort + free billiard table +pool was ok, even though really small and shallow - area wasnt nice, little pattya street was nearby - middle-aged men with their thai-girlfriends, felt like staying in some kind of dodgy motel - older people staying there, for travellers aged 26 and 28 wasn't a pleasant environment - didnt have ANY water for 2 days without anyone notifying about it - overall feeling not good

Till detta pris ett bra boende
Bra ställe med tanke på vad man betalar för. Renligheten helt okej, finns ett par ställen där man enkelt hade kunnat dra med en trasa för ännu mer fräschhet. Sängen var helt okej den också, kuddarna höga som berg och även samma hårdhet som berg. Som helhet en bra och billig resort nära allt i White Sand Beach.
