Stayed here for 9 nights in Feb this year with my wife and daughter.. I would rate the hotel as a three star in comparison with the numerous other hotels I've stayed at in Europe, Asia and USA.
The rooms are ample, no more no less, but as has been said before you don't spend a lot of time in your room on holiday.
Al rooms look onto the ocean and the view is very good.nthe downside is that you can't leave your balcony door open unless you want to be eaten by mosquitoes. Nearly everyone we saw had at least one visible bite mark so be prepared.
The breakfast is ample, but again it isn't anything other than that, yes the cold choice is good but with only 1 chef doing eggs in various styles you will need to queue. We ate in the pool bar restaurant and it was fine, if more expensive than the beach huts nearby. I would say try those first as for 130 baht you will get a very nice sandwich and a cold drink.
The sun bed situation around the pool is not good and the beds were normally taken by 6.30/7 am which meant an early rise if you wanted to beat a certain european group to the available beds.
The location is excellent being set at one end of karon and close to kata. Tuk tucks to patong will cost 400 baht one way. We did the phi phi all day trip booked through the tour rep for hayes and jarvis which cost over £200 For 3 adults , I wouldn't recommend it as all of the areas they take you too are full f other tourist trips,including maya beach where Leonardo di caprio filmed filmed the beach. The food was very poor, including cold spag bolognese....and a plague of flies.
We spent most nights at a nearby bar called ban Thai which had live music (bit old school) and a tv showing live European football.
Having said all that the majority of the hotel staff were by pleasant , the rooms were serviced every day, the locals in the main have a good level of customer service and we enjoyed our trip, but 9 nights was long enough.
