My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in January 2014. We had purchased an internet deal and were not sure what to expect, we had read some bad reviews, but we were pleasantly suprised. We loved the resort and would stay there again. Our room was lovely, it was an Executive Deluxe room on the top level overlooking the pools. It was large, clean, had a great view, was very quiet, had a lovely hot shower and a good air conditioner and ceiling fan. Each night we would have a different flower arrangement on our bed which was really sweet.
The staff were all friendly and helpful and the tour desk staff organised all our tours which we really enjoyed. The breakfast was great, could not have asked for more. We only ate there one night as we wanted to experience the other local restaurants, but the one meal we had was very nice. The good thing is that if you don't want to eat here you don't have to as there are plenty of other restaurants in walking distance. The "Hilltop" restaurant next to the hotel was lovely.
Yes the resort is a 10 minute walk to Ao Nang and the beach (which other people have complained about) but that is not the resorts fault, people should research before they stay here if they want to be right on the beach. We were not concerned about this at all, we love walking and it was only a 10 minute walk and is interesting to see the local sights on the way. You could either walk on the main road, which was very safe, or a quieter path with no cars. As we spent the best part of every day either at the beach or on day tours to the local islands, we were happy enough to not be right on the beach once we returned to the hotel. It was very quiet and private.
The pools were lovely, all very big and clean. The top pool was a quiet area and was for adults only which suited us. The bottom pool had a pool bar which was great and a seperate smaller pool for the kids with a playground area.
We did go the gym once which was well equipped. One cross trainer was not working but the other one was and there was lots of other equipment and weights.
The area around Krabi was beautiful, it was only a short boat trip from Ao Nang to the Railay Peninsula which was stunning. And the day tours to the local islands were great, we did the Four Islands Tour, Hong Islands and James Bond Island. The only thing I would say is that if you don't like to be crammed on a boat with lots of people spend a bit more and take your own private tour.
Overall we loved our trip and would recommend this hotel if you want a quiet, peaceful atmosphere and don't mind a short walk to the town and beach. Just make sure you ask for a nice room as I am not sure what the cheaper rooms are like.
