Loved the big comfie bed and stunning views. The dim sum breakfasts and excellent coffee made mornings fun. Staff at the front desk were so kind and helpful, housekeeping was also very good
However...as many have noted, service in the bar and restaurant was less than stellar. They are clearly just kids who don't really give a hoot! A firm handed manager would be helpful to straighten things out. I must also comment on the clientele. I expected honeymooners but there were a lot of big families with little kids which surprised me because it is not really a kid type of hotel. Also, because it's 'hip' you get some unsavoury characters hanging around the bar and pool at sunset...it felt a little bit like a nightclub at times. Maybe I'm just getting old :)
Best for the 20something crowd maybe...I wasn't in love with kata in general, so perhaps that coloured things for me.
And yes...the hill is nasty! I'm fit, but it kicked my butt every time I walked up it!
