Our second stay at the Cape Panwa. A wonderful hotel, staff really helpful always pleasant and nothing to much trouble (even taught our five year old a few words of Thai), rooms great huge TV , jacuzzi on the balcony and plenty of room (shower to take a layer of skin off, heaven!) Both pools very good and not too noisy. Great areas for the kids to play in and the baboon that came down to the beach for his bananas most afternnons was always very polite. Staff on the beach lovely and remembered us from a couple of years back even got our names right at first sight.
The location beautiful, slightly out of the thick of things but since it was only around fifteen pounds a day to get one of the drivers at the bottom of the hill to run you right round the island not a problem.
Enjoyed the flintstone theamed crazy golf immensely and our trip to the waterpark was the highlight of our trip would go earlier when we return as didn't have time tp go back before the end of our trip. Was also cheaper than advertised on web site. The big bhudda was well worth a trip and the veiws are stunning. Take the time to wander up the side baths but do remember it is a giant building site. Aquarium at the bottom of the hill worth a visit if you've got kids. Good if you get a wet day. Avoid the zoo, awful experience poor babies.
My husband had an ear infection, the pharmacist who is at the hotel most days examined him, double checked with her boss over the phone asked us to come back in half an hour, hopped on her scooter and back she came with anti biotics, ear drops and pain killers. The whole lot cost less than two prescriptions back home. An excellent service.
The lighthouse happy hour is not to be missed and the all the resturants in the hotel where very good with a specail mention for Uncle Nans Italian.
The little village at the bottom of the hill has THE best indian resturant we have ever been to. Everything cooked fresh and such a lovely family running it. By the end of this stay they were choosing the food for us. They even made chicken nuggets for our little boy one night when over tired he didn't want anything else! Usaully will eat anything but that night it was nuggets or nothing!
Tim at guest relations was also very helpful and a mine of information in the lead up to our stay. Can't thank him enough.
We are starting a new business venture this year so I think it's going to be 2012 before we make it back but we are not even thinking of another hotel.
