I was going to give this hotel 3 stars, because they were pretty good overall but not stellar. The bathroom needs an overhaul and the AC leaked every couple of nights, which brought a cheerful response but not a long-term resolution. The breakfast is OK but not brilliant and the pool is good but could be improved with a happy hour at the swim-up bar. The tour booking desk is cheerfully staffed (especially when Mook is on duty) and of course you can get it cheaper elswhere but at least the tours you book at the hotel are good quality.
All in all a solid, if not brillant performance, unitl the tsunami alert of 11 April. The staff were so professional and calm, under the rock-solid leadership of manager Nieke (I hope I spelled that right). They found a room for us ( we had checked out and were meant to fly out until the airport closed), fed us and made us feel as if it would all be OK.
Sure, people will tell you about the big hill you have to walk up to get there, and the tuk-tuk drivers will want to add 100 Baht for the hill if you let them but just remember: (a) a bit of a climb never killed anyone, and (b) if an tsumani is coming everyone will want to be up the hill where you are, not down on the flat. I know this because I was there.
