4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

25 of us stayed here. Ages ranged from 8 to 67. Pool was great, rooms were clean and well presented. Would recommend taking the upgrade to premium room with access to premium lounge. It's an extra cost but worth it for the drinks and food alone. Conveniently located to lots of bars, restaurants, beach and markets.

This hotel is an Excellent choice if you plan to stay in Karon. This resort is very large, boasting several pools, multiple restaurants and excellent, helpful staff. The place is so big that you get a little map to help guide you around the winding footpaths that lead to the hotel room building blocks, or separate hut-style rooms. The rooms... More

Stayed at this hotel during the last week of January. The hotel is conveniently located. We had booked a Superior room with ocean views and indeed we had mind-blowing views of the ocean both from our room and from the balcony of our room. There was a small problem with the door to the balcony and even though it was... More

Personally this resort is perfect and gives you what you want. We were looking for a tranquil and peaceful holiday and that is exactly what we got. However, there was lots of entertainment for anyone that wanted it. The Entertainment Team were so friendly and worked hard to ensure everyone got their perfect holiday. The Hotel Staff were lovely, and... More

This is my second visit to this resort... and it's been a few years since I was here. The last visit I was in a room overlooking the pool near the meal room... but this time, I learned that the resort is much larger than my first impressions. The rooms are nice but if you have any mobility issues, the... More

The hotel is dated but rooms are ok and definitely young kids enjoy the slides. Breakfast is good for this level of hotel. The only negative point is the customer service. Some things don't work: in the first two nights we had problems with lack of water, TV remote control and Internet and for some took over 1 day to... More

The whole resort was beautiful, so green, neat and cultivated. Staff is really polite and welcoming, food pristine. Special thanks to the entertainment team "Carpe diem" (Nicky, Drago, Maria, Leon, Jo and Inka). They were well prepared, organized, and their performance was entertaining, enjoyable and sometimes hilarious. They made our stay special and memorable. I would also like to say... More
