We were 2 adults a 13 year old and stayed 10 nights in October. It didn't seem that busy, so was a very nice time to go, weather fantastic. Our room had a balcony with a lovely view out to the sea and pool resort areas. The room was right above the entrance to the restaurant. The room was of an average standard, nothing special. There was a large mould patch on the ceiling where the AC blew out from, and the cleaning service was very average, just replaced the linen (sometimes not all of it, so had to ring housekeeping on 2 occassions) but didn't clean the bathroom really.Our son had the rollaway which was a pretty hard thin mattress.We only ate at the poolside bar on our last day and it was good. There are so many other places to eat, and much better value for money. We ate dinner twice on the beach, in front of the resort where a mobile BBQ sets up every night, Fabulous, entertaing and good value, and you can BYO drinksPool towels are provided and yes guests do place their towels on the loungers for the day, didn't seem a problem when we were there as it was quieter. We didn't sit by the pool so didn't bother us. There is plenty of choice for transport, we took the local bus to Phuket town at 30 Baht, great value,and right outside the resort, and once in Phuket we hired a Tuk Tuk to take us around Phuket and back to Kata, over 4 hours $600Baht. He took us to 1 gem store and a souvenir shop, which was great for us as we had heard but not seen these places. The driver gets stamps which can be used for fuel. Kata is a good location away from the crowds of Patong, and everything is right on the doorstep of the resort, with plenty of choice. If you do a lot of day trips you will always be picked up first 7 -7.30am because it is so far south, unless the trip leaves from Chalong. But you do see a bit more of the country as well. Pedicures, massages etc are available just in front of the beach, very good value, and a must. The beach right in front is a big plus, and great waves. Overall the resort provided what we needed a great base to see and do things or simply relax. We got a great October rate, but probably wouldn't want to pay much more.
