Dining experience was nice. Nice location and good service from staff.
Pasta was fantastic, really well done. Being from Australia, I have had some great steaks and we were disappointed in ours. It was tough and taste like cartilage. Staff offered to rectify.
Is not a cheap night out and didn't quite match what the promise of the evening was.

I expected so much but was very disappointed. The grounds were lovely but so understaffed and the place lacked a soul. Did not feel looked after. It seems the staff were over it and could not be bothered with customer service because they were working so hard. The pool needs a fun bar staff and the whole place could do with an entertainment director. Not great value for money at all. Although the place is beautiful you sort of expect more for the price you pay.

This is a pretty big call for us because we do love our food and eat out a lot. But we seriously were speechless at how good this place was. It was on the to do list last time we stayed at movenpick but every time we went to try it had finished service. Now we are staying in kata just down the road and we went last night for the first time and already planning another meal there tomorrow. We had the all you can eat eats off the stick cut with the sword looking thing. Not only the quantity you can have but the quality of the meat is the best I have tried in Thailand and even back home in Australia. Free salad bar and desert also for 1100bht so far better than some of the average places around that charge the same.. A must do if your within even 1 hour of this hotel.

The beachside setting is beautiful. That is the single outstanding thing about the Sunday Brunch at Movenpick. The restaurant is nothing special at all, just a sparsely furnished open air bar with no décor. As for the brunch, essentially it was just a well appointed breakfast buffet. The food was good, they make a pretty good omelet and the service was very good but it is not a brunch and not worth the rather high price.
