I stay at the hotel for 5 nights with my family of 4. Our teenage children had enjoy the nice beach and the hotel pool. A bit small but the sea is next door.
The hotel Gardens are really nice and make the walkway between the rooms to the pool and reception fun and interesting.
Service is good but staff English is limited

We spent our New Year's holidays in this hotel and we loved it! We stayed in a Junior suite which was very beautiful, tidy and well furnished. A newspaper every morning and a tea basket every afternoon made us feel very special. The staff of this hotel is pretty well trained- kind, polite and extremely helpful. The breakfast buffet has got everything you might need and I highly recommend the restaurant of this hotel for a dinner as well! Order deep-fried white snapper under tamarind souse and a shark bbq!
Now, few more facts of the hotel, that might help you to make a decision:
1. We had a chance to see the superior room, which is big with 2 merged semidouble beds and 1 single bed (couch) , but very simple , and a Thai suite, which is located on the 2nd F and i wouldn't recommend to anyone, cause it looked like a ghost house to me . No doubt- Junior suites are the best rooms of this hotel- new, closest to the pool, the restaurant and the beach
2. The territory is very beautiful and green, like a jungle- no direct sunlight in the rooms. In fact , those who want privacy have to keep the window shaded. I personally didn't care much , cause spent most of the time out of the room.
3. All the rooms, I have been to, have a specific smell coming from the bathroom. I assume that is an old pipe smell. They are trying to fight it using air-fresheners.
4. The pool doesn't look new, but it was cleaned everyday. Children had a blast there!
5. They had a New Years Eve dinner buffet , but we found it quite pricy because they were charging for children (who almost don't eat) and didn't regret - the celebration was way too simple ,not even a Count Down was held!
6. The hotel is located on the kids friendly beach , away from the main crowd.
7. I wonder why is this called Resort&Spa? The SPA was closed during all 7 days of our stay. They have a massage place on the beach, which was not secluded at all.

We stayed in this hotel for 8 nights.We really enjoyed our stay.By the check out we asked the girl at the reception if we could get 5 stamps for the postcards.She friendly offered to send them for us.It was a nice move...but none of those 5 postcards ever reached the destination.I believe she never posted them.My 6 years old daughter was really really sad about the fact,that daddy,grandparents,godmother,schoolmates never recieved the postcards she wrote.I really hope,that girl at the reception needed that money for 5 stamps for a much better reason than my 6 years old daughter.

We are just on our way home from this lovely family hotel...we were given one of the garden rooms and it was really nice, traditionally furnished. There are only about 34 rooms but our room was set downstairs in the garden which we could sit outside. Lovely decor and unusual bathrooms! Flat screen tv and good coffee making facilities. A nice touch was that at 3 in the afternoon a picnic basket with tea was delivered to our room complete with cakes or fresh fruit!! The reception area and dining room probably needed updating but for us we liked the quirkiness of the place. Also the hotel is set well in the street for all restaurants and bars and right on the beach. The staff should all be commended for their polite and pleasing manner!! Would definitely recommend if you want old Thailand and not a big hotel with squeaky clean facilities, where you will be looked after.

Room Tip: Garden rooms certainly seemed the best option

Ripped off at checkout by the manager who was backed by ignorant staff.
We walked in off the street and viewed the hotel and choice of rooms with prices quoted, chose a newly renovated suite (Rm 18). filled out paperwork and was given payment option with the 4 night price quoted in writing (cash or card) Bt 8800 and I opted card at checkout.
She jacked the price up by Bt 1000 a night and was not there at checkout but spoke on phone and staff would not show me original paperwork with quoted price. I ended up having to pay with card full price to get out of there, so not happy.
Bed was rock hard, Hot water very rare with useless shower and tv channels always playing up.

The beach was very good, Quiet area.

Your response will be interesting too I'm sure.

Yours Sincerely RIPPED OFF.

We stayed in a 'suite' that turned out to be everything but a suite - it was worn down, full of holes and mould. The bathroom was dirty, bugs came in through leaks in the walls and the 'jacuzzi' down right awful -my kids refused to use the bathroom without me following them.

The hotel seemed worn down and in need of a thorough upgrade, the surrounding garden was beautiful and the beach magnificent.

We were supposed to stay for a week but left after one night - almost hurting ourselves when the stairs (literally) broke as we walked down it. What's more is that the receptionist was very unhelpful when we were checking out, not being willing to assist us getting transport to the new hotel. What a disappointment!
The rating of two is only for the beach.

Room Tip: The suites are not suites - I would recommend that you downgrade or stay somewhere else

The hotel is great for families with children as the staff is very friendly and accommodating.
The beach is lovely and great restaurant such as orchid in walking distance. Nice rooms in amazing tropical garden.
