A large modern hotel smack on the beach which seems to be a popular destination with those from europe.
The hotel is just one hour ride over new smooth roads from Phuket airport.
Nothing to complain about this hotel.
Its clean, efficient, and friendly. The hotel just works. No thrills but every was good.
Two swimming pools. One for the kids and one for adults. Very clever touch indeed.
Many deck chairs / sunbeds dotted around the pool and beach but it seems you need to wake up early to reserve your favorite spot.
The hotel is located on a long beach which some beach bars just a ten minute walk
Outside the hotel there are also a few nice(ish) bars and restaurants tailored to the tourists. Again nothing special but friendly and enjoyable.
I had a pool access room. After reading other reviews people recommend against the extra money for this room, i disagree with them. Yes the pool that the room is connected to is fairly small and other rooms also share this pool however people tend to stick to their own section of this pool. I only once saw my neighbors in the pool. Also i would highly recommend this room over a standard room because its is a few square feet extra in size. The bedrooms are the same but this little extra is a living room and when you go on a holiday with a spouse / girlfriend / kids / whatever this extra few feet to have a living room is truly a blessing.
All in all its a nice hotel. If you are coming for a package holiday and you want to have a relaxing time with a group or your family then i would recommend this place. Everything is tailored for a family trip with activities planned throughout the day. It is a family hotel where if you come here you will not plan on leaving the general vicinity of the hotel.
If you do however venture out of the hotel and plan on doing a day trip i highly recommend a day trip to similan island or tachai island. We travelled to Tachai island with a company called 'love andaman' and they were fantastic. organizing hotel transfers, boat transfers, food on the boat, bbq on the island. Truly a splendid day on the most amazingly beautiful island.
