We were upgraded on arrival to a room closer to the beach - room 333. This was brilliant as we were moments from the sand and beach. When we return next we will NOt book a hillside cottage as they are way up the hill and too far from the beach.
Our first night was interrupted until midnight with wedding music. The restaurant where they hold weddings it right near the cluster of cottages we were in. The surin were apologetic when I called to query whether weddings would be held every night(no) and gave both of us a free spa treatment which was very much appreciated. Before booking or at check in, ask about the weddings though because in high season it could be an issue.
The restaurant food was great, breakfast plentiful and interesting, all very well presented and service staff all very friendly. English is mostly understood and spoken, with only the odd hiccup experienced.
If you like a very firm mattress then the surin will suit you. We had two pillow top add ins and it was still too hard for us.
If you are at all physically impaired then the stairs around the resort could be an issue as you can't escape them anywhere.
The hotel offered to do our flight checking for us and had breakfast boxes and coffee for us before our early departure.
We will definitely be returning!
