I was taken to my room and we went by stairs, then we caught an elevator, then more stairs, then another elevator...then climbed more stairs, seriously!! It appears the hotel is built on the side of a hill and my room was near the top. I asked for another room and was taken to a room next to the pool... More

Spent one night here when I arrived at the airport without a hotel late one night. The airport booth obviously gets a good commission. The hotel is generally of a very low standard. Spent the one night without power for about 4 hours - no generator. Room grubby, hotel grubby. Breakfast was awful. Location is OK but Kata beach is... More

First hassle: arrived and told the room I had requested had air conditioning problems so we were being upgraded to a 5 star room in another resort, only 2 minutes away.... More

The hotel is nice and across the road there is a beach. We arrived at 11 am, we had known that the room is ready only at two. To our great surprise they gave us the key in 30 minutes after our arrival. The room was very comfortable and in the morning we opened he balcony door and listened to... More

We were told our room will ready in an hour and a half and given drink-vouchers which could only be used between 6-9pm. The lift was out of... More
