I've yet to stay at this hotel. Am due in a few days. So far, I have booked for myself and a 7/4 yr olds. We have stayed in a number of places in Chang Mai and Karon and never been charged for an extra bed as the kids always share with me. When I booked this room I considered... More

Some of the superior rooms do not have a good location, right opposite the breakfast buffet. The breakfast buffet is nice with both warm dishes and bread, cheese, cereals,fruits and salad. For...

Stayed here for 4 nights with my daughter Upgraded to a Sea View room on check in but found the stairs a bit much, so moved to a Pool View room which is what we had booked anyway. One slight issue about the hotel is that some rooms have interconnecting doors which didn't affect us luckily, as the room next... More

Very friendly staff, good facilities, nice clean rooms, great value.Everything you need really. I think it's important to rate these hotels based on how much you are spending. For us, the value was certainly there.

I stayed on 17th Sept 2014, arrived around 11 PM, the receptionists were able to speak English. I got room 132, it's at the corner so it has an extra window that has a pool view but not very clear because of the trees in front. We found that all of the plugs (behind the TV and shower) weren't able... More

This is the worst hotel I've stayed in in thailand - I've been here many times. The staff are so unfriendly. The evening music by the pool was painfully out of tune. Poster by the pool said 'happy hour til 7'. The bar closed at 5.50 Phuket doesn't help. Lots of hassle selling things and taxis all the time. Tuk... More
