This is a very good hotel, and with a little more effort could be an excellent one. The location is great - just a few minutes walk from the main drag in one direction, Noppharatara Beach in the other, and Ao Nang's main street food stalls are on the doorstep. The hotel rooms are spacious and well appointed - flat screen tvs, a huge double bed, generous balconies. We were upgraded to a pool-access room which we were concerned would be noisy, but wasn't, and is a highly recommended option. The three swimming pools are great - one is long enough for doing laps, and the others good for lazing around in, and there are plenty of loungers and a generous deck space. The gym and spa appeared to be minimal - but we didn't use either.
Where the hotel lets itself down is the service, particularly housekeeping. One day we were left without toilet roll, another without towels; one day the room wasn't cleaned until 7pm, and on another they left the balcony doors open. The buffet breakfast is okay but not great and the selection rather limited, and the staff don't clear the plates during the meal. The staff are all very friendly but the whole service aspect needs an overhaul.
We were there in low season (late October) so prices were reasonable - making it great value for money overall. If they up the ante on service, it would be a great hotel all round.
