We stayed here for 6 nights and were not disappointed. We had chosen a room with a poolview/seaview and would advise anybody to do so, the garden views are not that interesting. With the poolview you can lie in bed and see the pool, the palm trees and of course the sea.
The staff at this hotel were very friendly, with one exception, the head waiter which never smiled and always seemed to be disappointed at something. Other than that the staff helped us with all arrangements - taxi, trip to Ko Phangan etc. The hotel holds a little stock of snorkelling equipment that is free to borrow for the day.
The rooms were clean, beds comfortable. Only sligth downside was that the plumbing smelled slightly in the bathroom, other than that the bathroom had a nice sink, and a large shower.
The hotel's restaurant is very cosy, placed outside under a roof, overviewing the pool and the sea. Service could be a little slow sometimes, so you might have to go and get the waiters to get them to come to the table or to fetch a menu. The food at this restaurant is decent, not very strong in taste but good, and the prices are reasonable for a hotel restaurant. They also make very good drinks that you can enjoy in the restaurant, or even better, at the infinity pool looking at the sea.
The poolside view room was on the expensive side, but I would still recommend staying here if you want some peace and quiet from the busy town of Mae Haad. The downside is that it costs 400 baht to get into town. The hotel does provide a free pickup and dropoff at the pier when you arrive and depart however.
