Stayed 4 nights out of a 16 night trip to Khao Lak & Phuket.
Decided to take a gamble on this hotel as we had splurged elsewhere and the price here was very reasonable. Weren't sure what to expect but we were very pleasantly surprised.
We choose the garden pool access. The front pool access would be better if you like more to look at. We liked the privacy at the back.
Room was a decent size. The second bed was a plus as we could put our 3 year old to bed and close the partition so it was effectively 2 rooms.
Check in was lightening fast, Out of the taxi and into the room in only a few minutes.
Enjoyed the pools, especially the swim up bar in the top pool. Everyone was very friendly and was a good meeting place with other guests.
Beach was lovely. Lots of restaurants along the beach and outside the resort. Dined at Bliss Beach Club a couple of times. The food was excellent and they have a playground for kids. They advertise that they have a nanny but couldn't see any and the question was lost in transition.
Food at the restaurant was good and the decor attractive. Good pricing. Happy hours was 4-6 in the pool bar and 5-7 at the beach bar.
All in all a great place for a few nights. Same beach as the laguna hotels are on but a fraction of the price.
