I stayed at the Beach Wing suite overlooking the pool and ocean. The Tower is across the street and is cheaper. It was a pleasant stay, staff was friendly, the hawkers mainly stayed out of the hotel premises. The moment you step onto the beach, it is public property thus they will approach you.
The night market is just outside the hotel which was convienent. There are 2-3 foot/body massage places nearby after a long day's walk.
Can't comment on the hotel food, as we dine outside most nights. The self proclaimed "best steak house" isn't that good and is pricey too. You must go to Gurney drive and try the local food stalls, there are so many selections. (20-30 minutes taxi from the hotel)
Overall, it was a pleasant weekend.
