PLUSES: attentive and responsive STAFF. In particular, Two individuals at the front desk, Golf and Apple (yes, that IS their names!). The RESORT is very quiet/tranquil, maybe 20-25 minutes from airport, and away from the mayhem of Chaweng yet near jumping off point for trip to Full Moon Island if that is your thing. Resort is also very close to the one 18 hole golf course on the island. I found room service menu and FOOD to be good. Breakfast buffet had good variety and also an egg/omelette station made to order. ROOMS are huge with kitchen area, dining room, Couch/TV area, large bedroom, etc Very comfortable for couples, probably even more useful for families of 4. Pool view rooms have nice view of lush landscape on horizon. Regular FREE transport from resort to Chaweng (and return) every 4 hours or so. One convenient thing is that they drop you at their sister property at one end of Chaweng, and you can charge food and drinks there to your own room, too! From the drop point, you can walk the length of the beach to the more active end of beach. Probably a good 2 kilometer hike past all kinds of resorts and people enjoying the beach. Taxis also ply the path on the road behind the beach, helpful for tired feet and long days, but expect to pay $3-$7 even for the short trip along Chaweng depending on your negotiating skills.
MINUSES: be careful in the resort pool. A bit awkward getting in and out, and it has rough edges and tiling that can scrape you up if you are not careful. It did me!
TOSS UP: they do have private transport in vans available if you want to schedule other trips separate from the free shuttle to Chaweng. It's nice to have, and drivers are friendly and timely. But cost can run you $12-$17 per EACH way. Convenience and peace of mind vs cost. You choose.
