Mixed feelings - not sure where to start. Some staff was extremely cordial, some outright rude.

A great hotel, set into the hill over Karon beach, a short walk to markets and the beach. Staff were always cheerful and helpful. We got this a part of a package and could not be happier!

We got a room with the view of the lake+sea, though from the second floor it's not that great a view. Though being higher up means more stairs to climb to get to your floor.
