We have just returned from a 6 night stay and have a some what mixed review.
Although the property is advertising it is complete, it isn't. There were drilling and banging noises throughout the day and only the deluxe rooms (closest to reception and main pool) seemed to be finished. The rooms closer to the beach were still being worked on and furnished. We were told the day spa would be open on the 30th October but it was not complete when we left 3rd November. It will be interesting to see how the properties amenities cope at full capacity. The gym is a small room next to the spa with 3 pieces of equipment and the breakfast restaurant is small and cramped. Out of the 6 days we stayed we only went to breakfast twice as it has a limited selection in comparison to other hotels.
Our room 1107 was in a great location, ground floor next to the pool and across from the breakfast restaurant. The rooms are spacious and well appointed but we had problems with the airconditioner and had to move one night as it was cooler outside than in our room. The staff were very good about it but it was fairly inconvenient to move rooms at 2am in the morning.
Although they advertise beach front it is only really the Tao Beach House restaurant and small infinity pool overlooking the beach that has views. I doubt the any of the rooms will have an ocean view when they are complete. The hotel is next to the Jayakarta and was in an ok location. But be wary changing money at the tailor across the road as we were short changed.
Overall, this isn't a property for elderly (lots of steps) and is not totally finished. It is more of a modern style property suited to couples. Staff are good and the rooms are nice and new but the property has a way to go before it is finished. I wouldn't pay more than $100US a night.
