to be in the heart of things
little free luxurys like water

HOWEVER, you have to be tolerant to noise as the majority of residents are young and sometimes will get home at 3 am, and you don't mind being somewhere busy. There are lots of people and it is a big resort. Moreover the resort throws beach party's every Wednesday and Friday and the place is very busy.
Not suitable for:
People who want beach all the time (go down south, beach is much nicer) here it is shallow and has rubbish from the beach parties
Disabled (some rooms are on third floor)
TIP: Get a room on 3rd floor. It eliminates some of the noise. Rooms on ground floor have a walkway out front from Chaweng main street to the restaurant and you will have people walking 2 meters away from your bed at all hours.
