Originally booked a family room on booking.com for a very reasonable price. Upon arriving at the hotel and checking into our room, we found the room to be huge. So big in fact that we could've lived in it for a month. We spoke to the check in lady and she helped us downgrade our room to a smaller one without a view for a cheaper price too, now thats a deal.
The rooms were very clean, bed sheets were perfect, A/C worked great, bathrooms were large, bath towels and beach towels were supplied. And to top things off our own expresso maker in the room. Television with approximately 80 channels, 5-10 english channels.
The hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk to Kata Beach which we did one day. We felt like a break from the crowds and sand and used the roof top pool for three days. Perfect size pool and nobody but us were up there for 3 days. Pool was very convenient as well, as it was only a 15 second walk back to our room to use the bathroom or to get drinks from our fridge. An amazing three days were spent sunbathing and relaxing on the roof.
The hotel has a newer section and an older section. The large room we originally saw was very nice with brand new furniture and fixtures. But even the older room we stayed in was very modern and well maintained.
Only complaint while there was because the hallways and rooms are all ceramic flooring, noise in the hallways travels long distances and echoes. If you plan on sleeping in, in the mornings get ear plugs if you arent a heavy sleeper. Other then that the place is a steal for the price we paid.
They offer a free tuk tuk service to the beach and to their restaurant which is located about 5 minutes away or a 20 minute walk south along Kata Beach.
We had dinner at their restaurant the first night which is tucked away from the street and noise. The food was authentic and fresh and the portions were large. Service and atmosphere were also very good.
Breakfast in the morning was quite good. A selection of fresh baked goods, fruit and yogurt are available as well as the best lattes we've had pretty much anywhere.
I could see us coming back here and staying with the family for 2 weeks in the future.
Previous negative reviews are not indicative of what this place is. Well worth the price.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.
