i stayed at this hotel for one night in april and paid 900 baht from booking.com. first up the place looks nice and the desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. i requested a ground floor room and recieved it. the room was clean and spacious and quiet and had a balcony overlooking the main street.
the pool area is nice and has a swim up pool bar. a breakfast buffet was included in our room price and included all the usual western fare of top quality.
the resort is built on the side of a steep hill and many rooms are up high with great views. there are elevators in the complex but you may have to climb steps to some rooms and i overheard others in the lobby complaining about the amount of steps to climb so consider this when booking. it's about a 5 minute walk to the restaurant strip and a couple more to the beach.
overall i rate this highly (especially the price!) and don't believe it deserves the poor reviews here. i would use this hotel again.
