Stayed for 2 nights. Hotel is in a good location, right on beach road. Walk out the back of the hotel and you are straight onto the beach. Room was pretty good, could see the beach from the balcony. Only 2 pillows on the bed (1 each) so had to request another 2. Wasn't impressed with the selection of TV channels. Only 3 local Thai channels, which didn't impress my Thai wife! Breakfast was not bad, a-la-carte service. Only 1 x farang option (American breakfast) but that was fine. Check in and check out process was smooth. Overall no real issues at all.

4 night stay, was upgraded to a one bedroom suite near the beach. Property is on a long narrow plot stretching from the beach to the main drag. There's a lot of stairs all over the hotel, so not suitable for the less able. Walking distance to central Chaweng, either along the beach or the road. Hotel about 20 years old but well maintained, rooms are comfortable and spacious, with balconies. Rates are good value.

We stayed here for 8 days after visiting Bangkok for 5 days. Chaweng Beach is a great area to shop and eat, and this resort is right on the main strip. The staff here are the highlight. A special shout out to Art, who was always trying to make sure we were taken care of. The staff bend over backwards to help you and to make sure you have everything you need. The rooms need some updating, and the view to the empty lot beside is unfortunate. However, even if there wasn't an empty ugly lot, you would be looking at the side of a building. This is just because of the way the resort is set up, so i can't fault them for this. The pillows also need replacing and they only provided two upon arrival. They are either very hard or lumpy. We asked for two more and they weren't any better. The beds are firm, but i prefer that. The breakfast had lots of choice, but most of the hot items weren't very warm. They do have made to order omelets though. Happy hour drinks aren't too bad, we liked the mojitos. We also did the dinner on the beach, which i would highly recommend. The resort should replace the old steel loungers though. They are very uncomfortable. The newer plastic ones are better. The pool area is quite small, but staff do their best to fit everyone around it as best they can. This resort is a very traditional Thai resort, so don't expect modern, contemporary decor. Overall, this resort worked for us. With a few updates, they could definately get four or even 4.5 stars.
