We booked this online due to TA reviews for 2 nights before flying out if Samui.
We booked at standard room at first but when we got there we upgraded to a sea view room for 200 baht extra a night. The standard rooms are much smaller and have very little daylight.... It was a bit like a cell but only with nicer decor!
The resort was well kept, pool was clean and beach was nice and you could swim there too.
Our taxi didn't actually know where we were staying as we told them Bophut but it's not actually in Bophut, it's away from the main stretch. Still enough going on around it though. We ate at the posh oceans 11 restaurant for one night as a treat (food was fab!) and then the next night at the Thai place directly opposite ocean 11 and that was also fab and cost us about an eighth of the price.
Overall the hotel was lovely, staff were friendly and rooms clean. I wouldn't have wanted to stay there for the duration of our holiday as the airport was so close (only 10 mins taxi) which meant you could see and hear the planes landing. However they aren't that frequent so it wasnt massively interrupting.
