The best thing I could say about this hotel is that I would travel from Chicago to return there. This hotel is modest from first appearances from the road but trust me,you will not be disappointed.
What may cloud my review is that we are Club Carlson Concierge level and we upgraded to a pool villa for our stay. I was completely impressed with the CC online booking and upgrade possibility. We belong to many hotel chain loyalty clubs and never have i been able to secure an upgraded room so easily.
The villa was exquisite - enormous and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was stunning. The bed was comfortable as were all seating options in the room. We had a standard pool villa (not sea front) which I actually preferred for its privacy level. The villa's pool was large and warm. Housekeeping was invisible and the room was always clean. Having arrived before standard check in time, we waited about 20 minutes for our room.
The main pool and beach had ample seating - chairs, beds, etc. The pools were interesting and multi leveled. The beach was small - much smaller than in Mai Kao or Khao Lak. The tidal effect was pretty small and the tide never went fully out but was fun to watch and walk out at low tide. The boats that others have mentioned were not an issue - who doesn't like to see boats?
We never ate lunch or dinner there but breakfast was great and was served from 6-10:30am.
There are plenty of nearby restaurants to walk to. I recommend Curry Night across the street. The taxi stand across the street was pleasant to work with and we hired a driver twice from there.
