Stayed in April 2013 for 3 nights, 2 adults 2 teens in interconnecting rooms. We received a welcome drink on arriva lwhich was nice and then walked a long way to the back of the resort to our rooms which were basic , old and very smelly;a musty smell.,the switch for the light was hanging out of the wall which was very dangerous. We asked for another room but none were available until the next day. Staff did place an electric air freshener in our room. I guess lots of people complain, that is why they had one of these. We bought incense when we went shopping. We did not see any cocroaches, thank goodness Ended up staying in this room as it was just for a few nights and the others were no better although they were painting one just up from ours and putting in wooden flooring so ask for a refurbished one when booking. The pillows are high and rock hard. You may want to bring your own if you like a soft one. We enjoyed the pool although you could not get a towel to use for it in the evening as it was closed . The towels in the rooms were threadbare and stained.We did not mind the breakfast. It was typical of most Asian type brekkies with lots of things Aussies would prefer to eat for dinner eg. rice and noodle dishes. We did not see any other Aussie travellers here. Most were Russian which is the clientelle in this area. They liked to stake claim to the pool chairs early in the morning even though they did not use the area until later in the day! At the pool you can borrow novels left by previous guests. I only found one in English. There is a fantastic Pancake Man at the end of the street. He makes them on his cart in the evenings, you can have banana,chocolate, mango etc. Also a great coffee shop with very delicious cakes close by at Woodlands Resort. You can walk from here to Alcazar the ladyboy show which was stunning and also a big shopping mall.There are markets all around at night and there are two 7/11 stores to get water etc.very close. You need to catch a taxi to walking street, we are good walkers and it was a fair way through the crowded streets.We would not stay here again.We would find a newer ,cleaner hotel.
