Coming back here is like coming home, even the guests are the same as last year. The staff are fabulous as always and Tim, the customer relations manager could not have been more helpful.
If you fancy an early drink or a nightcap try Uncle John's bar at the top of the road, he's a real sweetheart and brings out nuts or fruits when you go there. Avoid the sunset bar at the bottom of the hill. The guy there is arrogant and will rip you off. If you want to go off site the Ship is is a 300 baht taxi ride away. It's got lovely views over the sea but the food just comes as its ready, forget courses or whether your partner's meal is ready. All part of the charm really.
Now for the moan. As you will know from other reviews, the beach and all facilities are shared with Kantary bay hotel. We got yo know and chat with many of them and came to terms with sunbed saving etc. However one chat who comes every year and hates children grumbled at 3 teenager s who were playing a quiet game of ball in the beach pool. Well here's the thing Mr. Grump THIS IS NOT YOUR HOTEL. These kids parents had paid good money for them to stay at Cape Panwa and there are two perfectly good pools at Kantary bay. So if you are going to share our hotel at least let our guests enjoy their own facilities.
Rant over but it really made me cross.
All in all though a wonderful place to stay.
