Just got back after 8 nights in a pool villa room. Hotel staff were great, very friendly and helpful. Location is great for relaxing and not too far from the main Chaweng area for a huge range of food and bars if that's what you are after, food at the hotel is a little more pricey than a lot of the other hotels and bars in the Chaweng area but what we did eat was good. The included breakfast was great (the omelette's are perfect) got in early and we had the place to our selves, perfect way to start the day over looking the water having breakfast.
It is not right on the beach but only a couple of meters from it and there is a great choice of beach bars (with food and well priced cocktails) and massage places (the best on the island too), this beach seems to be a lot safer for swimming than Chaweng (seeing someone drown turned us off swimming at Chaweng pretty quick). There is a river between the 2 beaches so you can't walk right down the beach to Chaweng without cutting through a resort to get over the creek/river (will take 45mins or so though, but it is a lot safer than walking the street (seen someone get hit by scooter doing that). The hotel offers a free shuttle bus to Chaweng twice daily 1 and 5 pm and it only costs between 100 and 300 bht to get back with a taxi/ute. Don't let these things turn you off it is a great place to go; Koh Samui and The Sarann made it even. better.
The only let downs we had were the time of room cleaning changed daily so it was hard to plan when to be out for them to do their business without getting in the way, the other was that they didn't change he sheets daily, we kept forgetting to tell them not to change but they just didn't change them without our direction (must of known we didn't want them changed). The rest of the room was cleaned way beyond expectation. One other thing, the a/c was a little noisy when on high.
All in all was great and would highly recommend for couples, may not suit families so much.
