I booked online for 2 Teak Bungalows for 6 adults and one child, twin beds and extra beds. I ended up having one additional adult and child so it was a bit crowded. The booking site voucher unfortunately differered from the room arrangement which had one large queen/king. The front desk made adjustments and ordered up an extra bed but it did cost a little bit.
The bungalows are up the hill to the rear of property and a golf cart is run to bring baggage and passengers. For those that are in fear of a tsunami, they will pleasantly fing they are more than high enough away from the beach. I really preferred to be in this location because the grounds are nicely kept and some trees are labeled with the names, one surprise is a cork tree.
The room overall was very nice and large with a great balcony and chairs. Wish I still could smoke a cigar because this would be the place. While the entire building is wood, the shower is a manufactured enclosure which is showing some age. With both an upper shower head and lower massage jets, the lower are out of service. Overall it was clean excepts for some crevices; Clorox and a brush should be in the maids tool kit. The air-con worked great I even considered opening windows because the weather had cooled however I wanted to keep that lovely mosquito net over the bed for show and not need it.
The pool is large and there is a separate pool for youngsters. All are well kept and have adequate lounge chairs. Because I had two 6 year olds that are active, the lower pool was good for them and this is good for families with small children.
If I was to have one negative, it would be the breakfast. Europeans won't find the selections of cold cuts, breads or cheese and I found the lack of proper breakfast sausage and an omelet chef disappointing (Marriott in Pattaya Beach does this best in Thailand).
The staff were OUTSTANDING! Special kudos to the man who drove the golf cart and to the young lady working at bar below pool.
Wi Fi is free in lobby but when you get to your room, you will find the hotel is well wired fo Wi-Fi for a price and not free. Being at the near top of the hill and far from the lobby, it was a disappointment.
Location is one of the best in Ao Nang. I have previously stayed at the Ao Nang Cliff and Centara Grand and can honestly say any negatives were offset by the premium location.
