This was our first vacation where we only staid at one hotel - we were used to backpacking before. The Metadee was a great place for this experience.
The pool is probably the most exciting part of the hotel. It stretches through all of the resort. I guess from one end to the other (around some corner) it was about 150 meters. It was fun to swim back and forth and if you did this a couple of times quite a good workout. The water was always crystal clear. Since many of the rooms have direct pool access the beds at the main pool were never fully occupied.
Our room (without pool access) was fully and modernly equipped and as clean as it is possible in this climate. The only problem was the sliding door of the toilet, that was a little loud and made nightly visits a little complicated if you didn´t want to wake up your partner.
I was happy with the second floor room and without direct pool access (all rooms on the first floor), since the rooms were lighter and we could leave the balcony door open without being afraid, that our baby daughter would drown herself in the pool. We were also better protected from views into our room from swimmers in the pool. I experienced, that most people in the pool access rooms - understandably - always had their curtains closed.
Staff was really cheerful, starting from the gardner we met every morning on the way to breakfast up to the general manager, who took her daily rounds through the grounds. The staff at breakfast was also great, they joked around with our daughter a lot.
I found breakfast great, since I like Asian food and there were a couple daily changing options available. In addition there was fresh fruit, cereal, lots of breads, noodles, potatoes, individually prepared omelettes and salad.
We knew about the location but didn´t find it a problem. There is a "buggy service" with golf carts from the hotel down the 300 meters to the road, where you can walk an additional 15 minutes to the beach, if you are without a stroller you might even make it in 10 minutes. There also is an hourly shuttle to the beach, which we missed on most of the days. But since we always did some shopping on the way that was no problem. We even walked to Karon beach a couple of times which also is just 30 minutes.
We stayed here over Christmas and New Year´s. While we didn´t go to the Christmas party we attended New Year´s Eve party. It was quite expensive at 5.000 THB per person. We expected some professional dancers at the promoted performances for this price and were a little disappointed when it was all done by hotel staff (starting from the maids to engineers etc.) The party was still nice with a special flair and almost familiar and quite intimate. We had a good time but probably would´t attend it again for this price.
