“Fantastic Holiday!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Wow! Stayed 12 nights and had a fantastic time, staff amazing, rooms cleaned everyday, all you can eat if you so choose... We had a room on the lowest level overlooking lagoon and was fantastic - no stairs for hubby, lagoon undergoing a major transformation so will be awesome once finished. Short interesting walk into town and beach and amazing eating places to be found from as little as 50 baht if you do as the locals do. Can't wait to come back such good value!

We have stayed in this resort for 3 years in a row. They are always welcoming, do not expect 6 stars but a absolutely clean resort with 2 pools and a huge offering for breakfast. You cannot go wrong here, watch out for super rates, which we have always managed to get.The only down side here is , you could get a room 50 steps up with no elevator, so if you have health issues be sure to let them know prior to arrival. We did and we had a terriffic room.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of some sort, we had a garden room and it over looked the beach ( some what) J...

We stayed here for two nights and found the hotel to be clean enough with a very nice view out to sea. The hotel is huge and sprawling and there are lots of stairs, but a lift helps avoid most of them.

Our room was large and comfortable enough although we did have ants coming in and the aircons are noisy. Much of the hotel is being renovated and some of the higher rooms had been completely gutted, while some of the rooms at the sides were used as store rooms. It looked rather spooky higher up. This didn't impact too much as the central and lower part by the main two pools was still fully functional.

One policy I found bizarre though was the charge for wifi. In most hotels, wifi is complimentary, but in this hotel it is charged and the rate is rather expensive. We ended up just using a net cafe round the corner in Karon.

Overall, it was ok, but we wouldn't stay again owing to wifi hassles.

We went with 2 elderly ladies and were really impressed with the beautifully kept grounds, clean and sparkling swimming pools and all around service. Staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffets were really large with lots of choice, and delicious. Our rooms were ocean facing-we could see the little pond surrounded by trees and the ocean clearly-hear it too at night! Rooms were clean and well appointed but obviously not new. The bathtubs were made with 6 footers in mind, difficult for us short 5foot somethings to clamber in and out of, not to mention the problems the elderly, not very mobile ladies had. The air conditioning was freezing at all regulated temperatures. The only problem was the amount of stairs(of irregular heights) and slopes that one had to negotiate in the open air from the lobby up the hill to the lift. This was not clearly mentioned on the hotel information before and therefore outings for the ladies were restricted. Otherwise a lovely quiet place a few minutes from the beach and round the corner from shops and restaurants without the noise!Would definitely go again but not advisable for people with restricted mobility.
