This is an amazing hotel!! Beautifully set out & landscaped the pools, bars, restaurants etc are sensational. You would seriously never have to leave the resort if you didn't want to! Each night they have different theme's in the restaurants, from Beers & Burgers to Seafood Market night, Pool party fun & traditional Thai night. The rooms are spacious and well fitted out. We were travelling as a family of 4 plus my mother-in-law. The 1st night they couldn't put us in rooms connecting but were gracious in offering us a few different options for the 1 night, then we moved the next day... This resort is a children's paradise - the water slides are a massive hit! The location would have to be the best in Karon. Step out the resorts front door and you are in the middle of everything - shop, eat, drink, relax...everything is at your doorstep & the beach is an easy 4 minute stroll. Highly recommend to anyone!

We arrived here and was impressed with the hotel until we got to our room! The room smelt very damp and after an hour I asked to be moved. The room we were given was lovely completely the opposite to the first.

On our final night there was a lot of noise from the local irish bar which kept me awake most of the night, at one point I found myself singing along to a bit on Bon Jovi at 3am. Obviously this is no fault of the hotel although when you have a flight the next morning it's really not good.

The restaurant on site was amazing, our rep told us not to eat here as it was expensive a sudden storm meant we could go nowhere else and I'm so glad we were trapped as this was the best meal we had during our ten night tour of Thailand, BTW a three course meal and drinks cost us £15!!!

Sawasdee pearlydrops,
Thanks for providing a review from your recent stay. I was delighted you found our resort offered the "perfect location" and you were impressed with the hotel on arrival. I am sorry your first room was damp (May is our most tropical / humid time of year but agreed your room should be well aired and Im delighted we were able to provide an alternate room immediately. It was also pleasing your found our restaurant to be 'amazing'!

We recently stayed this resort and we found it everything we wanted in a resort. We received an upgrade from the Lagoon Suites to the Tropicale Suites. They main difference is the Tropicale suites are located next to a much quieter pool. The Lagoon suites are next to the main pool with slides and can get a little noisy with all of the kids. We found the staff to be very friendly in the restaurants and very tolerable considering the amount of rude guests they have to put up with. It's amazing how some people are prepared to treat other people.
The facilities are great with 3 pools available to use, the gym is great.
I was expecting to have staff that were more fluent in speaking english on the front desk but this was not a big deal. The only thing that i could be picky about was the check-in process. They directed us to a seat in the Mix restaurant asked for our passports and came back 20 minutes later. We were not sure what was going on.
There is some great restaurants located near the resort and access to taxis and tuk tuk's is very close. Lastly, don't go to the irish pub outside of the resort. The owner is an arrogant Pom who is more concerned about having the sports programs he wants to watch on and has no concern at all for his customers. We were the only one's there and wanted to watch the AFL and he put it on the smallest TV in the bar. The way he spoke to his staff was disgusting too. Thanks for a memorable holiday. We will be back!!!
