Had a lovely time at this hotel the staff went out of there way to make our stay perfect. We had a pool access room and it was spot on. The only criticism would be that you can't get a drink in the evening because they had no bar. But we just got drunk in the room. I also think... More

My review might be a bit different if I had not been on a won holiday. Overall, great hotel and awesome staff. Our room was on the wing closest to the beach on top of the breakfast restaurant. We had a nice balcony with a view towards the city and the sea. In the room itself there was a funky... More

Was confusion at the beginning as we had booked through our travel agent a one bedroom suit. This was because we were traveling with our 30 year old daughter. Just not right having your 30 year old in a bed next to her parents. So the plan was one room for us and a bed in the lounge area for... More

We went here for our Honeymoon in April 2012. Upon arrival cold towels was handed out to cool down a little bit. Our room was spacious and clean. The location of the hotel was excellent. You can walk to the beach within a few minutes. Other restaurants and markets were also close by. It was a nice quite area and... More

Can't fault this hotel. Check-in staff were informative and friendly, as was the porter who continued to give us hints and tips on our way to our room. We were on the 1st floor of the Serene wing (UK 1st floor, 2nd in American and Thai terms). The room was huge with a king sized bed and two single beds... More

Staff was friendly and again helpful. Also hotel is just across the beach! For the price we booked I highly recommend this hotel. Would definitely come and... More

The air con was amazing! The pool was clean. You can rent DVDs for free from reception. The staff were very friendly, especially the... More

Words cannot describe the feeling you get once your checked in, I was travelling with some friends (Mum and her Daughter) and once we found out that there were rooms that literally linked to the main pool we knew we had to have them side by side. The receptionist handled this for me prior to our arrival. The rooms were... More

The whole stay from minute of arrival to our departure was an amazing experience. On entering our room we were greeted with towel art which had been arranged by our children(as our trip was to celebrate two big birthdays & our 10th wedding anniversary). Thanks once again for this it was appreciated and a lovely surprise. The standard of the... More
