We just stayed here for 3 nights. We booked at the last minute and we thought it would be good based on the reviews. It is very much a family resort and definitely not for people without children. The positives for the Sunwing Resort are the close proximity to Bang Tao beach, the convenience of having large, kid-friendly pools, a shop on site, and a pretty good restaurant is definitely appealing. The food at LA Tasca was actually really good and the free kids buffet was excellent. Our two kids, aged 2 and 4 really liked the place. Unfortunately we just felt it was too crowded. The staff were very helpful generally but there were so many guests that it was impossible to provide personalised service. The rooms were ok, ours had a really bad smell coming from the bathroom and a "studio" on the 4th floor when you have two small kids just isn't a good idea. Everything felt a little bit shabby and the piles of garbage in the communal hallways, the beach and pool toys scattered around the grounds and the rundown appearance of the buildings was a distraction from what could have been a really nice holiday. There are also no lifeguards at the pools and no requirement to put swim nappies on little ones... While we were there they had shut the kids club "mini land" temporarily as they had had cases of hand, foot and mouth disease, not surprising given how many people were there and the lazy cleaning. This resort caters for Scandinavian and Russian tourists, with activities and staff specifically for those groups so, as Australians, it was the wrong place for us. They also charge for everything! The wifi (unreliable at best), sun lounges on the beach, kids club activities, all came at price. We would not stay again
