Checked in Friday for the weekend. Resort looked a little run down in certain areas in front especially the entrance road which needs some upgrade. Check in was acceptable. Nice to have porters there to welcome you and assist with bags. Reception staff although nice and sweet need some English training. they seemed having difficulty conversing. There was a gentleman there who was around in the lobby who assisted in our needs. It was a pleasure to be entertained by the resort manager. You don't see this much these days.
Room was explained quite well. No telephone in the room as there was a lightning problem that blew something up.
Beach is beautiful and sorroundings are nice and clean, its nice to see the gardeners pruning away and housekeeping staff(all girls) chirpily chatting away and politely wishing us when we pass. We have been to 2 other resorts in Cherating and this was definitely missing. Good work on staff being motivated.We stayed in the deluxe rooms.
Breakfast was buffet. Being European I felt the balance between local and western items was sufficient. It was value for money. Although I didn't quite accustom myself to the odd coffee served, there was no problem getting a brewed cup when asked for one.
There is an extensive order menu throughout the day and I must recommend the Lamb Chops and the Fried noodles.
One thing that was lacking was the English language which staff had difficulty conversing in. But there was friendliness evident and this definitely made the holiday a pleasant experience.
Me and my family were a little sad leaving on the Sunday and will definitely be back. Highly recommended.
