Stayed here a week and found it was in a good location for diving and shopping, though far from the main strip of the nicest beaches. It is not the place to be if you are looking for nightlife but it is perfect for families. The breakfast buffet is extensive and at 5 till 8pm families can go to the executive lounge for tea and snacks which is an added bonus for those with hungry teens after a hot and tiring day out on day trips etc. The facilities are outstanding, in good repair and clean - special mention goes to the gym which had fit balls, mats, weights and rather well used treadmills and bikes.
Service is excellent: professional, quick and helpful. Wifi is wonderful too and so is the Alun-Alun spa (love the products!). The pool is good sized and clean.
Avoid in-house restaurants for dinner which can be a little disappointing-the dim sum buffet was phenomenally disappointing. There are restaurants and cafes nearby for Thai, Chinese (go to Rootien Restaurant for excellent choices either for lunch or dinner), middle eastern, western for cheaper and more fulfilling options.
Will return for more diving trips.
