We stayed for four nights in early October in a one bedroom apartment. We had Coles deliver gorceries in advance which the staff had kindly taken to our room and put in the frigde, many thanks! The weather was fairly windy on the beach so the lovely resort pool got a very good-work out from our kids. Water was warm and the kids played for hours at a time in a family friendly surrounding. The apartment we were in was good. Enough space for us with a nice outlook over the pool and the picturesque gardens of the resort. And if the trees blew the right way, there were glimpses of the sea. Everything was very clean and well maintained but the kitchen equipment was spartan at best. We had family staying in the room next door whose kitchen equipment we had to borrow to get by. Also, we asked for a DVD player for the kids and were told "nope", there was a a very tinny alarm clock that doubled as music, pretty disappointing. And as far as BBQs go, we were told we'd need to go off-site. I thought this was a big poor since it's beautiful weather in October and bbqing is definitely the order of the day. Associated with this were signs in the kitchen noting that frying caused fire call outs. I have to say, bbqs on the balconies would probably resolve this. But don't let my whinging put you off, for location, cleaanliness and a brilliant pool, I would definitely stay at the Mantra Amphoa again.
