We organised an airport transfer, but when we arrived we had to call the hotel a couple of times, we got the impression we were forgotten. Once we arrived the staff were friendly and helpful, particularly the security guards helping you cross the road. We got a hillside room, which was on a really steep hill, we had to catch the buggy each time. The bars were good, however the pricing higher than expected. We found ourselves bar hopping for the happy hours to keep costs in check. The spa and massage was good, but again on the expensive side. The beach was terrible, you'll definitely find yourselves predominately using the pools. The shuttle service to and from Chaweng was good to have, but they really needed more services. They also need to actually check those who've registered against those actually boarding. We were caught out waiting for a second shuttle for 45mins in Chaweng, because when the first arrived and the doors opened people just pushed their way on. Would consider other accomodation next time.
