Heaps of things to keep the kids entertained - playground , slides lots of pools and room to kick the football. Breakfast was sufficient, wouldn't say great. Coffee was terrible and juices horribly sweet! Pretty much the same every day - noodles, rice, ham, a potato dish, little sausages, noodle broth, toast, eggs, pineapple and watermelon, some cereals,and something like pancakes.
The room also had a really bad musty smell the entire time. Very basic rooms. Get a ground floor room if you have kids.
Heaps of restaurants on the street. Can recommend Steve's across the road if you are after some yummy western food, or right next door (can't remember the name) we got lots of take out from there and ate on our patio. Easier with grumpy toddler than him screaming in a restaurant!!
The taxi prices both inside and outside ridiculous prices - with no bartering even a little! Prices have been set extremely high by someone ! We gave them a miss refusing to support their price hike and got tours with transfers included or walked around. Phuket dino mini golf is a nice walk away and the kids loved it.
Good if you have kids and not expecting much from the room.
