hotel is more of a 3/4 star, food lets it down for 5 star. the location is excellent on beach with great sunset views. There was a smell of sewage here and there but you could not pin point where it was from. Also smelt by the pool, a maggoty smell i am sure it was a dead cat or something in the bushes on the hillsides but i was not going down to investigate. The staff are very very nice. We ate in restaurant and it was ok. buffet style but my one complaint was that food is only luke warm and i like my food very hot.
The soups were good. Bread is also very good.
Had one meal in the a la carte restaurant which was really very very good.
My only comment i have for the a la carte is that they should change the lighting to a more romantic/ambiant lighting. its all a little too stark. it would help tremendously to have more ambient lighting. The rooms were very comfortable, dvds on hire from reception if weather is not to good. The cleaner was very nice and friendly and cleaned the room each day and changed towels etc. The only drawback is that there is no place to walk to as such so you are stuck in vicinity of hotel but the beach is excellent so if like us you just want a week relaxation then i would recommend it.
Management continually check on facilities but they should taste the food, as i am sure they would also find the food is served at the wrong temperature. it would not be allowed in an English hotel. Maybe thats why people do get ill. I was ill one night but i think that was more a case of over-eating !!
the massage offered by the thai girl was amazing - definitely give it a try.
We had to move on last night to an inland facing room which was not a problem and helped us as we left at a silly time of 3am. I prefer the sea view rooms, they are much bigger. Also the smaller inland room has only a tiny shower and the shower curtains are too short / hence the bathroom floor ends up soaking wet !! A small thing which they can very easily rectify. LONGER SHOWER CURTAIN NEEDED.
