I had a fantastic time at this hotel! I have read several reviews on other sites where people have rated it very low and felt these were unfair.
The staff here were so friendly and were willing to do anything at all you needed.
The rooms were basic but clean. There was enough storage space for cases etc, and you got a safe and mini bar too. The bathroom was fine to, the shower wasn't very strong, but it wasn’t a problem!
With regards to rats in the rooms, i didn't have this problem, but i think being in a country like this it is something you have to be aware may happen!!
The swimming pool was fantastic; it was large and has a waterfall which cascades into it. I spent a lot of time around it, and it was never too busy either. The meals were really lovely and traditionally cooked, and you can order them to eat around the pool too.
I had Thai massage every day down by the pool and again I couldn't fault it.
If you want to be right on the beach or a 5minute walk from the beach then this is not the property for you. They run a free shuttle bus to the beach every 20minutes or something like that, which was fine by us, and in the evening you can catch the shuttle bus into the centre of chaweng which is a 5minute ride away!!
Several people have complained about stray dogs on this hotel site, but they are not strays, they are dogs which have been taken in by the hotel, and live there. There is nothing wrong with them they are clean and looked after, and have had injections etc. They do sit around by the restaurant sometimes, and they have free run of the grounds but they are actually very friendly! This is common practice in many of the hotels and cafes there!
I would really recommend this property as for a 3* it is really good! If you are worried it is too far out, they offer car hire which we did and it was cheap too. We got to see most of the island!
