Stayed here for 2 weeks with friends, had everything we needed and was close to everything. We would stay again. Only thing we were a bit disappointed by was how expensive the restaurant food was and the added surcharges, but there are plenty of options around the hotel.

Do they supply pool towels??
The system has been changed slightly, each guest is given a pool towel card (1 per guest) when they check in. This card can be exchanged for 1 Pool Towel and the card must be returned when checking out, If the pool card is not returned then there will be a charge for 1 Towel per card not returned.

Not sure if this is too late to be of use... We got a taxi from the airport, not prebooked we just walked outside to the taxi rank. It was 1000THB. On the way back, we used the hotel transfer service which I think from memory was 1500THB. Enjoy your trip.
