“Could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Didn't realize the hotel was very far in from the main road and away from everything else. Check in was slow. The room did not come with the standard extra deadbolt (where the door cannot be opened from the outside) nor the standard door latch. Within 3 hours of arriving, i heard the door being opened using the keycard. As it turned out, the housekeeping staff wanted to bed down the bed!!!! A complaint to the hotel offered an upgrade to the villa (wow, right?) but the villa too did not have these extra latches/bolts on the door so why bother?
The pool looked cleaned, we didn't try it. Nor did we try the fitness center, room service and spa. Breakfast was simple. All 5 pillows in the room were lumpy. For 2 nights we had dinner at the Holiday Inn next door. On our last night (and because we were checking out at 4.30 am for a 6 am flight), we ate in the hotel. I had the vegetarian pizza my partner did not eat. At 3 am, I woke up with diarrhea and suffered the rest of the day including during the flight. They gave us a breakfast box but i didn't want anymore food from the hotel.
All the staff was polite and helpful as you would find in most Thai hotels.
