I selected the Katathani after reading all the great reviews posted here on Tripadvisor and was under the impression this was a five star resort. I have to be honest, I was not very impressed when we first arrived. It is definitely only a 4 star resort. (We also just came from a super nice 5-star hotel in Chiang Mai....The Ratilanna) We stayed in the Bhuri Wing. The rooms are decorated nicely and are hygenically clean, but the rooms look older and have stains in the showers and just seem like they could be scrubbed down a little better. HOWEVER, the resort itself is very nice. The are many beautiful pools, bars and restaurants....and it is beachfront. We stayed at the end of July 2009 and the waves are too strong to even get in the water though.
There are also many great resturants right outside the entrance to the hotel. I especially liked the little coffee shop right in front of the hotel sign...Good cheap food for like 100 Baht. There is also a massage place that gives great massages for only 300 Baht right outside as well. Just a short 15 minute walk or a quick tuk-tuk ride will take you up the hill to Kata where there are many bars and restaurants.
Overall, the Katathani turned out to be a great place and I would definitely go back.
