The hotel is perfectly situated for tours as the piers are right next door and when being picked up we were driven literally 2 buildings away! The pool and beach area are fantastic and make the hotel, but there could be small improvements which would make this place much better.
We stayed in the room right above the lobby so had no view. The floor was very slippery and could be quite dangerous for elderly people or drunk people as I nearly slipped several times just walking normally in the room. The wifi is not good at all and so don't think about streaming anything late at night. They only provide one toilet roll and 2 towels for 2 people and there weren't many hanging hooks or bins in the room which could be simple improvements I believe. The rooms also don't have a lot of privacy and so our curtains were closed for the whole time we were there. The rooms along the route to the pool were even more open to guests having a look when walking along.
The breakfast was good and there were about 7 choices to pick from as well as the usual unlimited cereal, bread, fruit. We didn't try the lunch or dinner as the prices were quite high.
The location isn't the busiest, there isn't much around, but we hired a scooter from the hotel (from an English guy Ian) for 250 baht a day which seemed like the easiest option and we had no hassle at all. The airport is literally 5 minutes drive away but prepare to pay 200 baht per person for the taxi to and from the airport as it's privately owned so there are no metered taxis about. The taxis along the street are also apparently not metered but we never checked.
This hotel is good for the pool area and for being right on the beach, but if you're looking for more nightlife then I would suggest Chaweng. This hotel is an ideal location for starting the tours though.
