Royal Cliff Beach Resort Review

This cluster of four well-kept hotels is nothing less than an institution in Thailand, known far and wide for its staggering size and its setting, perched high on a bluff overlooking the Gulf. But time has not been kind to the Royal Cliff: the place is starting to feel dated and impersonal, in stark contrast to the newer hotels nearby. On the plus side, even the standard rooms here are big and well furnished, and most have ocean-view terraces (request one ahead of time). Some lavish suites have two bedrooms, making them good for families. There are several swimming pools, each with a view. The beach is nice, but it's a bit of a hike down some stairs. The resort is about 1½ km (1 mile) south of town.
