my husband and I stayed at this hotel in January 2012 and found it really nice. Our room was rather small but that was the only downside of it and a bit pricy but i guess worth it. There is a Spur steak ranch on one side of the hotel but you have the choice of eating from the hotel diner which to us was preferable as it is buffet style and has a wide range of foods and deserts to choose from. It has a beautiful setting with lovely well tended gardens around the hotel, two swimming pools on each side of the hotel, a chill out lounge and a casino across the road. Its like a maze but great. We enjoyed our stay here as it's a 5 minute walk from Yaya/Sarit centre(not quite sure which one) and many transport routes into the city centre. Overall it was a great experience and would go there again. I reccommend this hotel.
