We found a deal for a Junior Suite on booking.com and it was great value. We had it so last minute that it was at a price of the standard room almost, so the room was great - clean, modern. I have read the other comments and it is true that the lights are super dim - usually I don't mind but in the bathroom it's a must for any woman! We were pleasantly surprised by the cool, modern swimming pool area. The wi-fi is great.
Breakfasts are great with a variety of omelettes, eggs, bacon, pastries, fresh coffee which was also a nice surprise because we were used to noodles for breakfast. The staff were very helpful. The hotel offers a complimentary tuk-tuk service to the nearby shopping centre which is useful for finding taxis.
Overall a super pleasant stay!!!
