Stayed in a Pool Villa on May 2013. It was a very hot day when we arrived and was immediately ushered to the reception. However, after showing my voucher, we were ushered again to the other end of the hallway because the check in counter for Villa's is different. Supposedly much special because you will be offered to sit while they process your stay, I didn't think it mattered much. The hassle of having to walk to the other end where it was much hotter with no ceiling fan or any wind ventilation was an instant turn off. Better show your voucher as soon as you disembark from the vehicle so they can bring you to the correct reception counter.
The Pool Villa was spacious and clean. Beautiful design and accessories. However, the pool is enclosed with no view and not a single plant to soften the concrete walls.
Bathroom shower enclosure was not doing its purpose. Water was spilling out the side of the glass door creating a puddle on the floor... and I hate wet bathroom floors.
Main swimming pool of the resort wasn't anything special. Just a plain rectangular pool. Boring. If you have kids I would highly recommend the Imperial Palace or Shangri-la.
The bar beside the pool have poor menu selection. However, breakfast was delicious with a wide selection. Overall it was average. We only tried this resort out of curiosity.
