The resort is in a good location in Karon a small quieter town than Patong. There are plenty of local restaurants, bars, tailors, plenty of convenience stores with a couple of banks and currency exchange booths, also plenty of places for laundry as well.
There are rooms that suit all tastes and budgets we stayed in the 1 bedroom cabana which also has it's own Jacuzzi and would recommend those as they all so afford lots of privacy as well and are a good size.
The resort has three pools one of which is a kids pool with a slide.
Breakfast is buffet style and they usually use two of the restaurants for breakfast and at busy times there can be a few minutes wait for a table but it is never to long a wait. There is a large selection of food so there should be something that suits every ones taste.
The staff we have had dealings with have been excellent during our stay the worst we have seen is a couple of staff who don't smile often, the rest speak when you see them and are very friendly that goes for all the staff from the management team within the hotel to housekeeping, restaurants, pool bar, reception,drivers and bell staff who also provide the shuttle service into Patong.
There is a shuttle 3 times a day into Patong but it is only 1 way.
There is a tour desk where you can book any activities and trips and also a taxi desk where you can also hire a Hotel vehicle and driver for any excursion rather than doing the pre planned tours which we did on a couple of occasions.
Having witnessed during my stay the way some guests have spoken to the staff in the restaurants, bars and at the pool bars and on reception it is no wonder sometimes people don't get exactly what they want.
This is a nice hotel and resort but without running it down it is not the most luxurious hotel but it is not advertising itself as such and having stayed in some of the best hotels in the world this is certainly a hotel I will come back to and is an ideal place for families, couples and groups as it has something for everyone and is in a good location.
