Instead we got a cold and soulless hotel!! First impression was of a surly, unsmiling young Russian receptionist who insisted on us emailing our voucher... More

We stayed here for two weeks in the Deluxe Room with a Jacuzzi. The room was very nice and very clean, but the Jacuzzi was filthy when we arrived and was not cleaned while we were there, I regret paying extra for the Jacuzzi. The spa was quite nice but had not been cleaned but was an overall good experience.... More

All up this was a wonderful place to start our Thailand trip. The facilities were great and the staff very friendly and helpful. The only downside was that the room we booked was not available when we arrived and we were "upgraded" to a family room which was nice but there was no point in the extra space and bed... More

We stayed here for a couple of days over my birthday. The staff were brilliant and even brought a cake to our room and sung happy birthday. The room was lovely and the balcony had a great view of the sunset in the evening. There was a sliding door in the bathroom so you could watch the tv whilst taking... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. It seemed quite tranquil the first day and night however the next night we were woken up by a noisy tour group moving into their rooms. The following morning the hotel restaurant was so packed there was no space for us. The rooms and balcony are nice. The staff were not very competent despite... More
