We stayed here for 7 nights and literally didn't move from the hotel and beach which is a first for us because we usually like to try different restaurants every night. The rooms were spacious, spotless and very comfortable, we liked the subdued lighting and did manage to read using it. The balcony was spacious and had spectacular views x 3 ways, 1. we could see the temple to the right with the giant Buddha and enjoyed listening to the chanting a couple of times a day. 2. To the left was the whole busy bay view where we even had fireworks a few evenings and could see the sunrise. 3. was the coral reef island, and Kingfisher beach / restaurant. Great balcony for sitting quietly reading or having a G & T before dinner. The shower temperature was variable during the day but warm enough. The bed was very comfortable. A/C good, even had tea and coffee making facilities. The sunbeds were very comfy, lots of hawkers but they left us alone and were not at all 'pushy', best bit of a very busy beach, wide part of sand, you could hire a glass bottom boat or diving boat from a few metres away. ALL of the staff were well trained, courteous and friendly. The food was excellent - especially the prawns , one day I had omelette with prawns, lunch avocado and prawns and dinner Green Thai prawn curry because they were sooo good! The staff were concerned that our last evening coincided with a beach party - we had read the reviews and took earplugs! We did not need to use them - the beach party was not at Kingfisher but at the end of the beach, Sam's music at the beach bar meant we did not even hear the party music until we went to our room when it was so subdued That you could hardly hear it at all. The owner along with the rest of the staff made us feel very welcome and we would definitely have no reservations on going back if we need to destress!
