OK place; Pretty new as it seems to be just a few years old.
The nautical theme is interesting. All the other reviews rave about it, but I found it kind of childish. (Like a child's bedroom... yes it is cute, but you wouldn't want your whole house to be like that, right?). The staff wears sailor-like outfits.
It is up on a hill near the end of Kata beach. Kata beach/area was nice as it was a little quieter (note.. a "little" - there is still plenty of activity!) Pretty good location.
Staff was friendly and helpful. They were available at check-in and showed us the room. They helped us with a question at one point.
If a view is a requirement for you, make sure you discuss with them to ensure you get a room with a view. We had a view of nothing but dirt and a neighboring building.
The rooms were well furnished but basic. They hit all the requirements but there wasn't anything exceptional or memorable.
In summary, it was OK. Nothing bad to write, but it really wasn't anything special. If you want a simple place to stay for a few days, it is good. If you are upscale and wanting it to be part of your memories of the trip, you might want to research a bit more to see if it can deliver that for you.
