We rented villa 14 for four nights, I can honestly say this is a wonderful place, but I must warn you about the neighboors in Villa 15. One morning, they were playing cheap heavy metal very loud and it really interupted the morning, we asked them to switch it down, which they did. Later that evening, we found the rearview...

We booked 6 nights here in a 1 bed villa with plunge/dipping pool. Since booking I had read a review on Trip Advisor that management had given a couple a free upgrade, so advised to ask. So we did just that and were shown what we had booked which was quite small especially the pool/outdoor area. We were then shown...

I had no interested in being near the craziness of places like Patong. The under developed area of Bang Tao served us perfectly. It was within a short walking distance of the local supermarket as well as a few restaurants - but not many. Perfect for a getaway when you don't want a lot of hustle, bustle and noise.

I would like to say firstly that our Villa was very nice and modern and reasonably clean, but I think it’s really deceptive to describe The Residence as a resort. It is a collection of timeshare villas where when you walk around, there is a single concrete lane with Villas both sides and for me it had the feeling of...
