Stayed in the first month of its opening for 2 nights,
We could not manage to get the superior room because of a website glitch and were booked into the superior twin room, which seemed ok on the website altough looked nowhere near as good as the Superior room,
The location of the hotel is nice within walking distances of the beach and the Jungceylon mall and Bangla street
The resort hotel looked very nice and its structure is a welcome sight for the eyes,
The twin bed room however had rolling beds which were anything but stable and would move even if one is to just sit down, one can only imagine how it is to spend a comfortable night
The wifi network in our room was pretty pathetic and kept disconnecting
On our second night there were massive thunder showers and water seemed to have filled up all along the hotels corridors , but then there was a leak through our room AC and water came pouring into our room filling the area underneath the ac.
After a discussion with the manager about a room change who initially dint take the matter seriously and after 20 mins on the phone sent the bell boy to have a look at the reception i went down myself and got one of the senior staff to look at the room condition.
After this we were promptly shifted to another room and given an apology and compensation from the manager on duty on checkout the next morning
However this ordeal did take away 2 hours of precious rest as we had an early morning flight
The pool is a nice place to relax and the square restaurant had good thai dishes at reasonable prices only they took rather long to come
I guess this hotel has a lot of potential to be up there amongst the best but it has a hell of a lot teething issues to sort out
As just like someone else mentioned we also experienced this "dirty yellow water" in our room
