    The place was good. But booking website is a piece of crap they change the dates of your booking so they can have a commission. I went to check in and my booking was for a different day so I had to pay again. And bookin website collected 8 dollars that didn't come off the price I paid. I would not recommend this app this has happened more than once.

    Really enjoyed my stay here over a couple nights. Great location to most things in town including bars & pubs just down the street. The only thing I would criticize is that there is no one to oversee what goes on at night. I had to be up early for a tour and throughout the night this large group of English ppl decided to bring a speaker from their room and blast music at 1:45am with no regard for anyone else. Having someone to tell them to shut it would have been nice, but thank god for earplugs

    A little chunk of paradise, close to the beach, and the town! Lovely pool and outside lounge area, connections with pipi patch hostel means you can get a bbq (potatoes, sausages, steak and a beer) for $10 - bargain! Has a party vibe but everything gets quiet after 10 as folks leave to go to the pool bar and places next door. We extended our stay because we loved Paihia 💚

    Hardly any pots and pans in the kitchen considering how many people were trying to cook. The pool and hot tub are excellent features.
