The pool garden is so relaxing and beautiful and very well kept by the friendly staff. The restaurant and the beach are right next to the pool, so you basically never need to leave this resort if you don't want to! In case you do want to get out, there is a small supermarket right outside the hotel where you can buy drinks and basic supplies. For bigger shopping there is a big Tesco Lotus a 10-15min walk away where you can get basically anything you'll need. The main street contains tons of restaurants, tourist shops, tour operators and the like. It was piece of cake to arrange our further transportation to Koh Phangan on site using the tour operator recommended by the hotel.
The beach is very fine by any standard, but definitely not the best you'll see in Thailand; it is pure sand (no corals), but it gets deep quickly and there can be big waves (and sometimes a little bit of driftwood and seaweed), so not as friendly for small children as some other places we've stayed where the water was more calm and clear and the view more postcard like.
We stayed in the garden villas, and they are very nice, but not sure they are worth the extra over the normal rooms in the main building assuming you can get a room that overlooks the garden. In any case, I wouldn't want to stay in the 3rd floor rooms overlooking the A/C units on the roof, even if they do have a sea view! It shouldn't be necessary to mention cleanliness, but i'll just add in that everything was impeccable and the service was generally top notch.
