I booked this hotel because I don't like high rise hotels and it was exactly as I'd hoped. Lovely Bungalows set in tropical gardens with a refreshing pool and breakfast/restaurant on site. Directly opposite the beach, just around the corner from Bangla Rd, we didn't have to walk far for anything in fact we didn't use taxi's or Tuk Tuk's at all. I booked standard rooms not knowing any difference but they upgraded me to a superior room for the first night and I felt like a queen, grand bathroom, huge bed, LCD TV, I loved and appreciated the attention to detail in regards to the Swan towel at the end of the bed upon arrival- See pics..The next day I was supposed to move to my booked standard room and although it was pretty much the same but smaller, it was nearer to the front near reception and old, so I paid the extra 500 baht and got another superior room this time facing the pool.( Room 35 I think) While I was there (5 days) all the Bungalows facing the pool received brand new mattresses as well. I loved sitting peacefully on my verandah, my daughter and her friend had a twin bed room further along the same area but that meant they could hear the noise from Bangla Rd a bit more than me and yes the peacocks they could do without but as it happens i found I got used to it after just a day as they are housed near the pool , they do make a loud noise. The staff are very nice, very good english speaking. There was young girl at breakfast which always greeted you with a big smile and ask how you are, all the staff seemed happy to be there. The restaurant is very popular at night, always full, food is excellent. Breakfast has all you need, bacon , eggs many different ways, fruit, yogurt, cereal ,great coffee , pastries ..I cant understand how anyone could be disappointed with that. The bungalows are kept very clean, the cleaning staff are working all day, one day I noted the lady always coming out of the rooms after she'd finished cleaning it with a can of insect spray and I can honestly say I never saw an ant or anything crawling in my room. Everything is spotless from the pool area to the gardens themselves so highly recommend and would stay again. I paid 2100 THB for standard but upgraded for 500 baht, my daughter paid 2500 for a twin bed room and upgraded to superior as well. I must have paid less as it was only me, not sure. I booked directly with the hotel and received prompt replies everytime. The only disappointing thing was that my daughter and her friend were told that there was not a twin bed room available on the first 2 nights so they had to share a double bed which they did not appreciate and having booked five months in advance and assured that a twin bed room was available, this was unacceptable really, but these things happen unfortunatley. There seemed to be plenty of Superior rooms vacant so go for that and you shouldn't have a problem.
