We stayed here using Marriott Reward Points in January whereas a lot of people had bought the bed and breakfast option - good move! We had to buy breakfast either in the restaurant, where we did not have the choice of the buffet or something from the deli, both of which were very expensive as were all the restaurant options...

It was a pleasure to visit this hotel. We spent two weeks here in January and had a wonderful time. Be advised that the hotel is located by itself, isolated from almost anything. This gave us the perfect calm feeling that we wanted, but that depends on what kind of holiday you are looking for. I must admit we did... More

Hubby & myself stayed here last August & we were so impressed that we decided to go back with our two teenagers. I'd contacted the hotel prior to our arrival to arrange for one of the hotel mini buses to pick us up, this cost us 2500baht, we didn't mind paying this as it's a luxurious mini bus with individual...

Great pool with access from all basement rooms (try to get into those, if you can). Beach shallow (and very clean) with decent waves, ideal for kids (and grown-ups) to jump around. Also beach better than at Marriott in Phuket. Good restaurant choices, also left and right of property on the beach. Hospitable as one knows it from Thailand. Remote... More

Set on an idealic beach the hotel is one of the best laid out resorts, I have experienced. It has meters and meters of swimming pool that snakes its way around the grounds. Water fountains and water features add to the intrigue. The ground floor rooms have direct entry to the pool. Every single Manager, especially the General Manager, is... More

The hotel was amazing! The pool access rooms and the best and the pool is literally one step away. The beach was beautiful but get down early if you want good chairs. The sea was very wavy and the supplied buggie boards. In the afternoon they had delicious free icy poles for the kids. Around every three or four days... More

A perfect place for family vacations. The resort is large with the biggest swimming pool we have ever seen. The interconnected "channels" lead to the main pool (the total length is said to be 3 kilometers or so). The beach is actually very nice. Obviously it is neither Riviera Maya or Boracay but it is very clean and good for... More

It was raining most of the time we were here and the rooms suffered a bit from an overlying smell of damp. Luckily we secured a de-humidifier and this helped ease the awful smell. The rooms are lovely, but showing signs of wear. The situation regarding the early morning reservation of sunbeds is irritating and really should be dealt with... More

Overall an excellent experience and a very nice resort. It's a big hotel, but only felt big at breakfast - however breakfast was vast and excellent, so rarely had to queue for anything. Great room - had a deluxe family room, so the children could sleep and play downstairs and we had some privacy upstairs. Very big, ridiculously vast bath,... More
