I stayed at the Resort from the 15 - 23 Dec. 2012.
When I arrived at the airport somebody of the resort was already waiting for me to bring me to Ao Nang beach, where a former US Navy amphibian vehicle took me to the resort. I was surprised how far up the room is so prepare yourself for a bit of exercise to get to the sea-view rooms.
The Resort itself is beautiful in their own bay. Because of that you have to take the shuttle boat to the bier in Ao Nang. The idea is good but you have to book in advance when you want to go on the boat and it can be full quite quickly. Unfortunately it is only going every hour, even though the transportation takes 5 or max.10 min.
The Monkeytrail is definitely not suitable to cross to Ao Nang in the evening for dinner, but the hotel is clearly saying that it is NOT an alternative to the shuttle, it is kind of a hiking trail.
In the morning the money were very active on my balcony, but they are playing and as long as you leave them alone and/or have food with you they will not care about you very much.
The food was not too bad. I had Pizza in the restaurant "On the Rocks" which was very delicious.
All in All I would definitely come again.
