We arrived to a fantastic welcome from reception staff with a cold drink and towel, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was much better then expected, it was large, modern and clean. We had a room which overlooked the childrens pool. The pools were fantastic with the areas well maintained. The highlight for me was the beach... More

The pools were the highlight in this resort...mind you it rained almost everyday so didn't get to use any of them lol. The resort itself is lovely but they are closing down on July 25th for major renovations as changing to the Marriott so you could tell the staff were winding down too a bit which you cannot blame them...35...

We had an absolutely wonderful time at this resort and could barely fault it. The pools were our highlight as well as the breakfasts which had excellent variety and everything was always fresh and tasty. The staff were helpful, friendly and always greeted you and paid attention to the kids. The kids enjoyed the kids club, especially the craft sessions.... More

Upon arriving at the hotel we were greeted with a refreshing drink and a cool towel to wipe our faces which was nice after a long flight. Staff were friendly and could not do enough for us. The food was fine and a reasonable price with quick service if you didn't feel like heading out to Patong. The pool man... More

I have reviewed this resort, however has not been posted for some reason, I can only start with that the resort is very clean and staff very helpful, the buffet is what you would expect in any good resort and could not fault this, although as other reviews suggested there are a lot of flys around. The restaurants at the... More

This is a resort that you could tell was about to close!! The staff were very helpful at reception and a few of the waiters around the pool were nice, but there seemed to be a 'I don't care' attitude across most of the staff. Our room was nice, the shower leaked, but we learnt to put towels down before... More

Great spot for relaxing. Rooms quite nice, lovely and clean. Lots of places to eat around the hotel. Been here 10 times. Marriott is taking over in Dec and it will be too expensive for us to go back with Marriott, gutted. Loved every holiday we spent here. Highly recommended.
