The rooms are great, and the seclusion is a nice change from the selection of hotels in the Patong area. If you go out a lot, it adds to the cost as traveling to and from the hotel is not cheap... 300 baht seems to be the price to go anywhere from the hotel except the airport at a whopping 900 baht.
A place for couples I think. Most certainly, I would stay here again but the food is not the best. We had the Thai food menu on the day we arrived and at the risk of sounding rude, it's probably the worst Thai meal I've had in my life. On the last day, we had the Italian buffet which was OK. Below average I'd say.
The plusses are certainly the rooms, the service was fantastic but the masseurs we had at the spa need to give it a bit more elbow grease - their technique is good but just didn't give it enough strength.
All in all, fantastic place to stay.
