Spent 8 nights in The Front Village 11-18 September as part of an 11 night package that included a stay in Bangkok first.
Hotel is situated a little way out of the main town but only a 5-10 minute walk to get to the centre with all the shops and restaurants, but this means the hotel is nice an quiet. It is situated on the main road but don't be put off as you cannot hear anything once in your room for the night.
We stayed in a swim up room which was lovely, spacious with a very comfortable bed and good air conditioning.
Pool was very nice and happy hour good fun.
The staff are lovely and a credit to the hotel but we did have a couple of small issues. Firstly you have to pay for WiFi and the restaurant and bar are very expensive when compared to those in town. Pretty much every bar or restaurant we went to had free WiFi so this seemed a bit of a mistake for the hotel as it seemed to us that no one stayed at the hotel to eat or drink but all went to town, most nights the hotel was deserted of guests. We did stay out of season so it might be different in high season but if not then the management might like to think about changing its pricing to attract guests to stay and eat and drink.
Breakfast is OK but not very exciting.
