This Resort is nice, overlooking the Kok River with a large pool and good gym room. I enjoyed the fact that the bathroom had a bath, but overlooking the river came with the usual problem of mosquitoes. When I went to use the gym early in the morning the mozzies were coming into the gym, also on the balcony at dusk they were bad. The town is a good 10 minute drive, and when we used the hotel car they charged us per room as there were 4 of us (although it was one trip in their car), returning we used a taxi and paid half the price of the hotel car. I think the hotel should look at providing a free courtesy shuttle as it is not a cheap hotel to stay in. The breakfast was quite limited but okay.
The hotel had all no smoking rooms, but the balconies had large fountains of sand for smokers, so smokers could smoke all along the balcony and our room was at the end with about 8 people smoking on the way which we had to get through the smog and nearly choked on the way to our room. The people in our corridor were from a tour bus and the following morning one person elected himself wakeup person, and came banging on all the doors in our corridor, then after all the banging he proceeded to open the fire door opposite our door and stand there smoking which wafted into our room maybe through the air con, or door surrounds, at 5.30 am. Not what one wants from an expensive resort, but I think this was out of the control of the hotel.
