We just checked out last Thursday. There were many minus things:
1) We booked the ocean hall. However we could only see 1/4 sea, the rest was hill
2) Very slow check-in. We had a tried flight and arrived to the hotel at 5:30PM. It took us 30' to check in. It seems like this is a new hotel, the staff not well trained enough.
3) The room decoration is totally different from what you look on the website
4) The air-con is just above your table head and you cannot adjust the wing because they use the center system
5) Breakfast was another disappointment although the restaurant is next to the beautiful swimming pool. Only the salad and pastries were buffet. You can only order one main dish once a day
6) The taxi service was a robber. The hotel does not allow the outside taxi come in to pick up the guests even you book through the phone. Taxi fare from the Phuket airport to the hotel was 800bath. But the hotel quoted us 1,300bath
Only one plus thing is the swimming pool. It is nice
Eventually my advice is no try the hotel if you just like the photos as you will be very regretful like I am now
