With the exception of the age of the rooms, and especially the size of the standard rooms balconies, an excellent resort. They've started to renovate the rooms, which I consider more than necessary. What I didn't appreciate was the "small" balconies of the standard rooms which are tiny, just good enough to smoke outside the room. If you want a good balcony, take the deluxe rooms. The park is quite marvellous, the advantage of an old resort, with a 9 hole golf (albeit short) course, wonderful meals (like all Club Meds) in the buffet restaurant but also in the restaurant by the Zen pool.
The beach is just across the road. Since it's a public beach, only a small portion is reserved for the Club Med. It's a question of taste if that pleases or not. For those that want bars, out of the Club and to the left are all the clubs one would normally want.
I liked the place and would not have minded staying longer than the 16days I did stay.

A warm and clear sea opens up its underwater depths, filled with colorful fish and abundant flora. Adults and children alike can find tranquility and discover the Thai culture. ... more less
