I stayed at this hotel for 10 nights and I was shocked when we first arrived. It was a lovely hotel, I didn't feel that I had made a wrong choice. However this hotel is now in the middle of a town, it is down a dirt track which happens to have a few restaurants, handful of spas, and a shop by the hotel.
The hotel has wonderful facilities, 2 great pools and is on the edge of the beach. The restaurants are great, although their take on deserts are little strange.
We didn't book excursions through the hotel because we managed to do a bulk booking with the tour office over the road. We also didn't visit the spa in the hotel because again, the treatments were much cheaper over the road.
The hotel was very clean and we found that we should leave 5baht on the pillow as a tip for the chamber maids, as they are paid peanuts.
As for WIFI, it is free in the reception. To buy a week's wifi code which covers you for entire hotel grounds only costs £20 for the week, and is well worth it. You do have to log in and log out again, so be prepared if you have more than one device.
The hotel is about half hour from Tiger Muay Camp & Phuket. The Big Buddha is a must. Aphrodite Show is alright, but I wouldn't go back.
If you have any questions please just ask :-)
