Arrived after a rather longish drive from Bangkok but once we passed through the door into the lobby with a view to the sea it was like entering a different world of peace and calm ...
Check-in, normally not my favourite activity, was not only smooth (to be expected) but also most personal with outstanding attention and excellent recognition as Royal Ambassador. As our room was changed we were shown to around the property and then invited to the Club lounge which is a nice retreat but a little tucked away (no views of the sea). Staff at the lounge was always very, very attentive and caring, regardless whether it was hints for the location or special needs of our kids.
The very large suite was simply fantastic, offering lots of space for sleeping and lounging and the layout very thought-through (enough wardrobe and drawer space to get everything out of the way). Only draw back was that the minibar did not feature any wine selection at all, but that was quickly solved by room service. One thing to mention is the balcony offering views right over the resort to the beach ... fantastic! (Even though we didn't get to use the Jaccuzzi on the balcony!)
Breakfast and restaurant service in general provided a good selection, and we enjoyed the separated individual tables which gave a great feeling of privacy.
We and especially the kids thoroughly enjoyed the beach and pool area: easy access, lots of variety of depths and plenty of sunbeds. The beach was probably the best we experienced during our stay but did get a little busy during the day ... a good excuse to take a turn in the pool!
When finishing off the day at the fireplace near the beach, overlooking the sea we thought this couldn't get any better!
Only drawback was that the city is some 4 - 5km away but taxis are easily available and we found it well worth going there for an afternoon and evening.
While everyone was very helpful we'd like to especially thank Juan and Nancy for their attention and service ... such dedication is hard to find!
Thanks for a wonderful stay at a great resort hotel which is probably on the top of our list.
