My wife and I have just recently returned from a 9 night stay. We booked a de-lux pool suit room with a small plunge pool. The room location and the room facilities were very good. Our stay was on bed and breakfast, the buffet style choice of food was vast,and very good. The hotel staff were great from arrival to departure.
The only real issue although It did not really detract from our stay was the almost total take over of the hotel by Russians, who seem to lack people skills in a big way.
They seem almost without exception to be very rude, never smile or acknowledge you when you say good morning. Whilst the rest of the nationalities seem to mix, the Russians don't even try, this obviously is something they, the Russians need to address.
The location of the hotel on the beach at the top quite end of Karon beach is very good. Although this does mean that to get into the main resort of Karon beach after dark a taxi is really the only option the cost about 4 pounds each way.
To conclude, the hotel is of a very good standard, well laid out with very good swimming pools, plenty of sun beds, and access directly onto a superb beach.
