Stayed here for 8 nights in the low season.
Location: Was very peaceful around the pool and in the room, never got disturbed by any noise. Just off the Dolphin roundabout and pretty much on the Baht bus route for very easy access to anywhere along beach road (incl. Walking Street) for just 10bht. Also a nice easy ride home at the end of an evening.
Rooms: There are basically two types of room over 7 floors - Premier and Deluxe (though both of these options are also available on the ground floor with direct pool access). The Deluxe are slightly bigger, but we preferred the layout of the Premier rooms, hence decided on one of those. If you have a look on their website you will see a floor plan of each type - so see which you prefer. The room was spacious and well laid out. There is a fridge freezer, kettle, microwave, and utensils in the kitchen, and a large LCD TV in the main area. There is a small walk-in wardrobe that is big enough to store all your clothes - which was great. The bathroom was large, with a separate bath and large shower cubicle. Rooms have balconies with a chair, table, and sofa / daybed. All rooms come with free WiFi. The room and bathroom were always spotlessly clean.
Sleep Quality: Beds are enormous, bedding is very comfortable, air conditioning was very effective and reasonably quiet, and there was no outside noise that ever disturbed us.
Pool Area: There is a nice pool at the suites, though suites guests also have access to the 2 additional pools at the adjoining Woodlands Hotel. There was never a shortage of sunbeds, but we were there in low season, so that may not always be the case. The pool area gets the sun from about 8am till 2:30pm, after which it sinks behind the main building. The pool is long enough for a decent swim.
Food and drink: To be honest, we didn't have any main meals here, but we did use the French Bakery which is very good and extremely popular, and had a few happy hour drinks at the nice main hotel bar (50% off from 5pm-7pm). The Grappa restaurant looked nice, but we tend to eat late so didn't use it.
Staff: Very friendly and always keen to help. Actually arrived 8:00 in the morning, and although unsurprisingly the room wasn't available, the staff did offer to store our luggage, and provide towels and changing facilities so we could enjoy the pool. They also arranged a late check out for us (at no charge), and arranged transport to our next destination in Pattaya for a very reasonable fee.
Security: Always felt very safe. Access to rooms is past the manned reception and 24 hour security. Key cards are required for access to the lift and stairs.
Overall: Would definitely recommend this property. Has a lot going for it, and I thought all things considered, the price was reasonable too.
