We met up with family from the other side of the world: a halfway meeting point. Had stayed at this hotel before, but that was 25 years ago, and we had forgotten how steep a slope it was outside. Nevertheless, a beautiful hotel, set in gorgeous grounds. The beach pool is really something; you can get a tram down to the beach, which is private and extensive, with glorious white sand. The sea is good to swim in and to snorkel, but beware the sharp coral on unsuspecting toes! We had a junior suite, which was lovely (but up steps: see later). Food very good in regular Andaman café (buffet breakfast and all other meals) and in Top of the Reef restaurant, where the service was a bit slow. Staff pleasant and helpful; they are very friendly to children. Thai buffet, steak buffet and seafood buffet - spread throughout the week - were excellent. We pre-bought meal vouchers, which were good value (the lunch ones can be used until 5 pm, making it ideal for an early dinner for a toddler). Free shuttle to local village and aquarium, and local taxis to Phuket Town and further afield.
All in all, a wonderful holiday. We went with Thomson on a package deal: direct flight to Phuket from Gatwick on new Dreamliner aircraft: superb. Highly recommended.
