hotel is right opposite the beach which is good. But if your room is at the back like mine then you have to walk good 10 mins to get to front.

Only two things worthwhile here. The hotel is directly opposite the beach. Secondly the restaurant was clean. Service was only average. Rooms very tired with dangerous power points. Old TV's, not LCD. The large pool with bar was not clean, algae growing everywhere. The 'smoothies' were made of cordial, not with blended fruit. Karon Markets were expensive compared to Patong...

All great and no complaints at all; its right across the road from the beach so very handily placed for swimming there although the water is a bit more salty than usual.

We only stayed here one night but would definitely stay here again. Three beautiful pools (one with swim-up bar, comfortable and stylish rooms, friendly and helpful staff, fabulous breakfast buffet, and wonderful restaurant with live entertainments in the evenings. Restaurant is located right across the street from the beach. Very nice location!
