We stayed in a garden villa room with our 2 year old son. The room was very comfortable and pleasantly appointed, we had no issue with the outside bathroom but would not be to everyone's tastes. The pool was pleasant but not huge and only a limited number of sun beds available, the beach was pleasant too but same story not a huge amount of space or number of sun beds so the early risers secure the best beds. The resort has an effortless European charm and as mentioned elsewhere the food is very good, but worth noting that the European menu is quite expensive relative to the excellent Thai menu. The wine list was extensive but was one of the most heavily marked up that we encountered. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay but the one are that lacked was the service which did not math up to our expectations given the reviews on TA. At check-in we had to wait a long time which set the tone, the General manager came to introduce himself which was a nice touch, but was the first and last time we saw him. When one of the European management team was around service was a touch better but we found it generally lacklustre throughout which was a shame. We did stay just after the busy new year period so perhaps this was an anomally. Overall a nice hotel but this is a boutique and therefore there are certain limitations, we thought the hotel was reasonable value though but take the outstanding reviews with a pinch of salt.
