If only this hotel was slighty closer to Chaweng then it would be almost ideal. If you just want somewhere to laze around then won't be a problem but it's a little too far out of town in order to pop back during the day. It may look walkable on a map but it isn't really - and those taxi fares do start to add up.
Otherwise, the resort is very peaceful and I slept better here than I did anywhere else on my trip around Thailand. The bungalow rooms are pretty much what you would expect at this price level in Thailand - fairly basic but perfectly adequate.
The other downsides were that the resort is currently a building side as they extend the restaurant and the owners allowed their dogs to roam the side which is quite disconcerting when you arrive back late and find them barking loudly at you. It was also disappointing for an hotel in this price range to charge for WiFi.
