This is our second visit to this resort. Last time it was truly exceptional. This time it was nowhere near as good. We had a pool villa and we stayed in one of these two years ago when they were brand new. They already are jaded and have stains on the walls and on the floor in the showers. The... More

The hotel is direct at sea and is good for those who want to spend time at the beach. Clean rooms, the breakfast very good and the general environment perfect! If you can afford the pool villa then you have the best combination!

The hotel is great. The staff is friendly and helpful, trying their best to help you quickly and efficiently. The rooms are spacious, well equipped, and always clean. the place is silent enough to give you a good sleep, but the thin walls may be a problem if you have noisy neighbours (imagine 4 Chinese children screaming until 23:30 every...

Bandara is a very large, very well equipped hotel. The buffet breakfast is amazing as well as the private beach, beach restaurant and beach bar! just be prepared for a 5 minute walk through the endless swimming pools and beautiful fountains to reach the back of the property where these highlights are found!

After 12 days in Australia and two days Bangkok we needed 7 nights to chill. This was ideal, however do not be fooled into a upgrade. There is a main road that is loud and you do not want to stay there on the road so they put you there first then say do you want to upgrade to a... More

The Hotel is very new so we seemed to be one of the few guest, just what we needed to relax and be a priority. The staff seem friendly, breakfast was good but could do with more international hot options or a chef to do the eggs how you like them. The location was amazing, very short walk to the... More
