We were looking for a couple of days of complete relaxation before Christmas and our new baby was due and we completely got this at the Angsana - whether we were chilling by the pool or on the beach - the setting was tranquil, the beach clean and it was very picturesque. There were plenty of kids about to feel like our three year old son wasn't getting in anyone's way and the staff were pleasant and attentive. We also were very impressed by the hotel's attempts to be environmentally conscious.
We did have a couple of complaints - one time our order did get lost at the beachside restaurant leaving us a little hungry and in general the food was a little overpriced in the restaurants. The room was adequate enough for our needs but the bathroom did need a good jetwash and we found the pillows a little high for our short necks :)
In short, it was a pleasant enough stay and we left feeling we'd got a good rest and plenty of sunshine. There are some creases that need ironing out though - but it is a very quiet resort with little in the way of activities going on (unless spas and golf are your kind of thing...) so don't go expecting a great pool scene or it being a huge hive of activity - it is just a place to bring a good book, sleep, dip in the pool and rejuvenate...
P.S. Bring a bucket for the ferry...
