The hotel was perfectly nice and what to be expected when staying at an up-market Thai resort. We stayed in the highest priced room, on the GF bordering the pool. The room was nice and spacious but unfortunately the aircon in my room was either on @ 16'C and rattling or off. The breakfast had quite a range of foods and the staff were pleasant. Unfortunately, I got food poisoning from the room service one night and was unable to leave the room for 2 days as a result. Another member of our party (in a different room, on a different day) also got food poisoning from a room service order. When we notified the hotel of this they were very quick to avoid taking an responsibility.
Location wise, the hotel was also quite a trek from the nearest town and required a taxi to get to most of the local attractions. However, there is a small strip of shops/restaurants outside the hotel of which some were quite pleasant. It must be said that I did prefer Kamala to some of the other bays since it seemed more sedate and less Westernised that some of the other areas we went.
tl;dr It was a pleasant stay and despite issues I enjoyed it but next time would probably look for a different resort...
