The theme of the hotel really is brilliant and the rooms were so spacious, luxurious and very very cool. Excellent location in the heart of chaweng and the beach is beautiful! As was the lovely red pool.
However for the price you're paying I feel the staff could have been more accommodating. They seemed keen to remind us that things would cost extra for example when we were 10 minutes late for breakfast. Also there weren't many beds on the beach and at happy hour when it was busy the staff didn't help find us a seat so we ended up at a different bar! I think they need to invest in more sunbirds for the beach!
