Paresa is a wonderful place. The hotel is spotless and beautifully designed. It is extremely comfortable and not too modern and minimalist. The food is a high standard, good portion size and not overpriced. Free (and fast) wi-fi, bottled water and DVDs are good added extras. Prior to our arrival the Angel Team were helpful and responded to emails quickly. I asked for blinds to be put up in the bathroom as privacy was a criticism by other visitors which they did happily. The Cookery School was fun and nice for a change away from the pool. The spa is really lovely too but like any spa, it will make your bill go up a lot. The staff work incredibly hard to go above and beyond your expectations and are very polite. There are a few language issues occationally but the staff try so hard that it always ends up fine. You have to remember you are abroad and that it is all part of Thailand's charm.
Having read some reviews I was worried about dangerous buggy journeys but they are safe.
The only slight criticism I would have is that the beach is further away than the hotel implies and it isn't the best Thailand has to offer. However, the hotel is so stunning there is no need to leave. I would recommend Paresa to anyone that isn't beach obsessed.
