Stayed in the hotel from 20 to 23 Jun 13 as a couple.
Summary of the Hotel:
1) The location of the hotel is good. Located among the local shops and restaurants and within walking distance. Kata Beach is also within walking distance.
2) The room was large. I got a room with pool access and very much like the pool. We spend quite some time using this facility.
1) Cleanliness of the room could be better. The floor of the room was sticky and basically we were with our footwear in the room all the time. Saw and killed two cockroaches during our stay.
2) WIFI was also non-existence in the room even though it is stated that the hotel provided free WIFI. Had to sit at certain spot in the room to access that pathetic one bar of signal for the WIFI and kept disconnecting. Only existence of WIFI was at the reception and breakfast area.
3) Breakfast was open air. Wondering if the birds did help themselves with the food though most of the trays were covered. Hygiene is an issue. Food for the breakfast was bland and tasteless, variety was too little. I usually quite a heavy breakfast in the hotel when i travel, but i ate less than half i usually eat.
Overall it is an good hotel but i believe the better days are over and need to buck up on their maintenance of the facilities.
