great great bungalows, but poor wifi

Coral Grand Resort is a lovely hotel right on the beach, it's at the end of Sairee beach so it's very quiet and great if you want quiet and peaceful time.
I stayed in a sailor cottage bungalow and it was lovely: clean comfortable white bed, hot shower, good AC, tea/coffee making facilities, a fridge. Breakfast was also good.
However, the wifi is really poor in that hotel. It barely worked in my room and most of the times wouldn't even show that there are wifi connections available. It also barely worked at the reception - where there are comfortable chairs to sit on. The only place wifi worked for me was by their restaurant and pool by the beach and when it was late at night, it was not the nicest thing to do to spend an evening on a wooden chair in a dark being bitten by mosquitos just to be able to use wifi while I paid money to have a comfortable room with AC. One evening wifi disappeared completely and at 5pm I asked them what was wrong with it and they said "they will check for me", when I got back to the hotel around 9pm, wifi was still gone and they said they cannot do anything about because it's late ans they have to wait till the morning while they had all that afternoon to do something about it. Therefore, SOME of the staff attitude is not the best there.
Overall, great, lovely bungalows. You should definitely stay there if you think wifi is not an issue for you.
