We liked this hotel very much, but the pool turned out to be a disaster for our 11-year old daughter. She had looked forward to swimming and lounging by the pool after an 14-day trip through Thailand. Unfortunately, she had a very bad allergic reaction on her skin after her first dip in the pool. She had a terrible rash. First, we thought it had to do with her sensitive skin, but later we found out that other guests' children (without skin or allergy problems) had the same issues. After their (and my daughter's) skin was damaged they couldn't swim in the sea either, because the salty water made that too painful. That was very disappointing.
I wasn't too thrilled about the loud music they sometimes played for young guests who are there for the full moon party. They do turn the volume down, however, if you ask them to.
The rest of the hotel was fine, though. The staff are very friendly, the view of the sea is magnificent. They have two wonderful hammocks.
