Stayed here for three nights at the beginning of March. Very friendly welcome when we arrived. The resort is on a fairly busy road but is set a bit back. You do hear the traffic a bit when you are sat by the pool. We picked a room set towards the back of the property to ensure that it was quiet. The grounds are very pretty and were well maintained. The pool was not so great - all of the plastic coverings around the edge of the pool weer broken and the water did not look clean at all so we did not use the pool. There were also cigarette butts in the area where we sat one day.
Our room was very nice - quite spacious, bascially decorated and very clean.
There was a beach about a five minute walk from the hotel. It was ok, quite busy and had a few bars/restaurants at the back. Not much around to do in the evening so you will need to get taxis or hire mopeds to get around.
Went to see the boxing in Chaweng one night which was a great experience. Hotel is not far from Chaweng so went on a moped. Easy to find the boxing ring and not too expensive for the tickets. During the evening, there were six different fights. You could get food and beer from the bar during the evening. Would recommend for a traditional Thai evening.
Went to nearby Dr Frogs one evening for dinner. Quite expensive but lovely location, great service and very tasty food. Had Thai green curry which was very tasty. Need to get a taxi/moped there.
The hotel is very nice and the people working there were all lovely. Location is a bit something and nothing though. Would definitely recommend a moped if you stay here so that you can get around and visit both Chaweng and Lamai.
