This was a very nice resort. Clean, nice staff, good breakfast, large attractive rooms. FAB pool. Definitely not walking to beach, but can walk from hotel shuttle drop off. Ao Nang is not a very interesting town at all, but this hotel was a great place to stay. However, dinner at hotel restaurant was bland and overpriced. Eat at the Esan restaurant across and a bit closer to the beach from the McDonalds. Breakfast was good however.
