This hotel, was just as the brochure describe. Really friendly and helpful staff, 24hrs reception and although only breakfast included you can have food and drinks by the pool or room service, phone in the room to call reception. Would advise an air conditioned room, although not many available. We had a room overlooking the pool with ceiling fan, but this just seemed to move the hot air around, but it was 36 degrees in the shade, very hot and humid. went on a few trips, Elephant trip to the sanctuary was good, but the ponmoodi tea plantation was a bit disappointing. The rice boat trip to Alepey was well worth the money beautiful backwaters very relaxing and realy well looked after by the 3 staff. Its true to say that your trip is only as good as your taxi driver. If you find a good one keep them.
Tuk Tuks are much cheaper that the taxis, slower but we found more enjoyable, if thats the right word. A bit scary sometimes, you feel like your on the dodgems, but cooler if you get stuck in a traffic jam, in a taxi with no air conditioning.
Very strong waves and currents prevent a good swim in the sea and not suitable for snorkelling, but amazing to watch the fishermen bring the nets in on the beach.
This hotel is just far enough away from the temple, when there is festival on which last all week, for the music and fireworks not to be a nuisance.
Overall a lovely holiday, would love return one day,
