A well run establishment with well equipped, generous sized rooms.
Food and beverage prices were most reasonable.
I would recommend this resort to families who want to spend most of their time on site . Taxi prices for the 4 km trip to Patong ,( or to any other part of Phuket for that matter),were very expensive by Thai standards,(200 baht each way to Patong Beach, 450 baht to Phuket Town and 650 baht to neighbouring Karon beach).
While the resort does run free shuttle buses to Patong Beach and Phuket Town, departure and return times are very limited.
If you are stressed by sharing your holiday with hordes of under 12 year olds, don't use this resort.
At times during our 2 week stay, the numer of under 12 year old children seemed to outnumber adults.
