Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. First impression - NICE! The lobby is nice and the resort is huge! Alot of space and area. I stayed close to the new year period so i believe it must be quite full. However, due to the amount of space - I don't feel that it is very crowded at all.
Check in was a breeze. Easy. We booked the 2 bedroom suite. Hmm a little let down as the living area ia tiny! Bedroom is rather decent. Toilet is HUGE! We have a BIG jacuzzi. Balcony is large as well. 1 bathroom for each room. Living area has a dinning table and 4 chairs. No tv area in the living room. Not even a phone! There are 2 tv but they are in the rooms. Can't watch since my baby is napping in the room.
One problem is that there are loads of insects. Hence, please do not leave the door wide open. There are many mosquito and huge insects.
Finishings in the rooms ain't good. The drawers in the cupboards are quite hard to open. Bed is ok but not soft enough for my liking. Cot is a decent size.
Seaview in the 2 bedrooms suites - BEAUTIFUL.
Khaolak sea is quite nice. Rather Quiet and clean.
There are only 2 public pools. 1 for kids - with water slides. The other is a "quiet pool" Not suppose to have screaming kids. The other pools are for the pool-access rooms. Not for the rest of the rooms.
Mini bar is empty. You can stock it up at the mini mart - which is good as you can decide what you want and the price is not too expensive.
Food at the resort is rather reasonable. Though you can still walk out to restaurants. Walk out is about 5-10mins walk out from the lobby.
Resort is very child friendly. There is a nice kid's room with loads of toys and dvds for kids. They have activities for kids as well. Face-painting, colouring, etc.
Overall a nice resort. I probably will come back again. Nice surroundings.
