the bar is not that high. We stayed 9(!) days in Kenting, as this was my wife's family reunion. The hotel was renovated recently (2005?) and there were additional rooms being worked on during our stay.
Unfortunately, we ran into some terrible weather, which resulted in us having to spend a lot of time at the hotel itself, rather than at the beach or driving around. As such, we extensively used the facilities. What we noticed is that, aside from the front desk and the cleaning crew, most of the staff members (restaurants, concierge, shops, poolside, children's area) are really not very much into hospitality. To be fair, this seems to be a pattern with other establishments in Kenting, where people really are not very friendly or welcoming. Instead, you get the feeling they are kind of stuck in their jobs and not interested.
There are a few exceptions, including Mike (the front desk GM) who wanted to make sure we had a good time, even if the rest of the hotel or the weather did not cooperate.
The positives - Clean, nice grounds, great pool, children's area (if a bit outdated and under-utilized), the rooms.
The neutral - OK breakfast and dinner buffet, Nice semi-private beach (although the bathrooms were under renovation),
The negatives - Staff Hospitality, Other Restaurants, Weak Organized Programs.
Still, this is the best in Kenting (we did have time to check other places), if you happen to want/need to spend time there.
