we stayed in 5 different hotels in Ao Nang area and we though Aonang Villa Resort is the best. Its price and comfort are excellent. And the pool area is very stunning. You can see those unique Karst topography while swimming.
Excellent location! It's 5-10 mins walk away from Ao Nang Beach and where there are many restaurants and street stalls where one can explore easily. Unlike hotels which are right within the area and might be noisy at night, the hotel is situated along a quiet street so one could enjoy both peace and convenience. Moreover, the room is very clean and nice. We love it a lot. :)
One of the downsides of this hotel is that the staff aren't really very helpful. They seem friendly but aren't helpful in fact. On my first day, I was asking if there's a street that has tour agency or info for tourists. The hotel recommended that we book tours with them. When I explained that we still wanted to take a look elsewhere to have more selection, the staff simply said something like "you go out and see" dismissively and went back to his work, uninterested to help anymore. There are some nice staff so I guess it's not that bad... The other (slight) downside is that the hotel only has free wifi at the lobby and it broke down on one of the days I've stayed. Not a big issue though but could pose slight inconvenience when one needed to check something online.
I would definitely still recommend this hotel to tourists who's staying in Krabi.
From the moment we arrived we felt so welcome. The reception staff and the kitchen staff were all friendly and obliging. The room was large and comfortable. Our balcony on the third floor was very private with a small table and casual chairs. It overlooked the lovely gardens and pool. The location is great, as the beach is directly across the road from the hotel. There is also a large choice of shops and restaurants along the beachfront road. The Ao nang Princeville is all halal, as are many of the other local restaurants, which made food choices very easy. Although we travelled as a couple, we would love to bring our whole family back. This resort was a perfect choice for us.

Everything was amazing. The location is perfect within its own private beach (so keep in mind you'll need to ride a boat to get to this hotel). They offer free speed boat rides at specific times, but be sure to book ahead of time with the concierge as space fills up quickly. Once there's no more space you have to book a long tail boat and pay for this service per person.
You can borrow paddle boards or kayaks and take them around free of charge. This was pretty nice! They also offer complimentary daily activities for guests such as beach yoga, boot camp, beach volleyball, etc... The ocean-facing rooms have amazing views, so recommend staying at one of those.
For breakfast, we recommend booking room inclusive of breakfast as purchasing it onsite is 700THB per person. They do not offer a-la-carte breakfast so you're pretty much stuck with this expense even if you just want some fruit and oatmeal. They do offer an in-room dining option for breakfast, but the price is pretty close to the buffet, so we preferred to go for their buffet option.
Their restaurants are quite pricy and not so spectacular so perhaps try and eat some place within downtown Ao Nang.
Definitely use the monkey trail to go to downtown Ao Nang, it's quite amusing.

Arrival Krabi, stay in Krabi town Maritime Park hotel was surprisingly good by considering the rating is not so highly recommended. We was given a high floor room, oversee the river and pool, fantastic view. Surrounding was nice and cooling. Breakfast was decent. Have to comment that service was not at par for a four star hotel.
