first impressions was ok,we had booked a 'standard room'online but when we arrived they mentioned we could upgrade to a 'superior'room for 500 baht(about £10) per night extra,they insisted we look at this room but declined,we was satisfied with the standard,then her mood suddenly changed to being not very friendly.the 'superior'rooms are a lot nearer the reception,but be warned we was situated in a room right at top of the 'hill'we are pretty fit but when you have been out for the night we was not looking forward to your journey to our room!also if you don't know your way around the island they will charge at least 500 baht a trip!the local songthaw costs 60 baht!we wanted an extra 3 nights,we agreed a price but when it came to paying they requested more money!we moved to the north of the island.we took advantage of the free transfer to the airport which took us 3/4 of the way to our destination.be wary of the local karioca bars just below the hotel they go on till around 4 in the morning.the only positive thing was the breakfast which was cooked to order and not bad for thai standards,there was a loveley chap who took your orders always had a smile on his face.
