“Beautiful resort”
Reviewed 5 May 2011

The resort is beautiful, the rooms are clean, modern and spacious, lovely quiet beach and we got a villa with private pool at a great price. The reception staff are especially lovely.
The only downfall was my phone and money stolen from my locked room. The hotel eventually upgraded us, however the door was still locked when I arrived back to the room so I suspect it may have been staff, who also knew we would be out all evening.
Also, watch out for the noisy frogs at night! Ribbit!

Small hotel on the beach. Very good for some relax. Nice beach (water temp. 29ªC), the sand is wider than in other beaches in the island, bur in low tide the botom of the sea is a covered with sediments. This is due to a very soft inclination of the land platform. It means in low tide you have shalow water for more than 50/60 metres. The advantage is that there's almost no waves and the sea is absolute quiet. Very good for the litle one's. There's nothing close by so if you want go some place rent a car or a scooter (very cheap). There´s a small food store in front (local Thai) and the people are very friendly. You can eat local food for a very, very reduced price, if you enjoy thai food. Local beer is nice. The rooms are quite spacious and clean. The restaurant has nice snacks and the food is good.

If you are looking for quite romantic place to spend your time then I would recommend this hotel. Which is about 40-50 mins from airport and away from the night life. We stayed at family villa with swimming pool and it was convenient to our needs. The villa’s area is so beautiful like walking into a secret garden and offers privacy. The hotel divided into 2 parts the villas with swimming pools are cross the road in which we need to walk to reach the other part that is located over the sea.
The villa’s rooms and bathrooms are well organized and clean. The hotel’s staffs are so helpful in everything they would offer their assistance and make sure of our comfort. The hotel offers room services, spa, transportation with charges, and free bicycles to roam around the area. You can as well walk as the area is beautiful to walk and enjoy the serenity of the surrounding nature. The area around the hotel doesn’t offer much the nearest nightlife area is about 10-15 mins by car. The breakfast might need lil improvements however; overall I enjoyed the beach, the sun and the sea.

I would recommend the hotel can have more beach activities that will be nice …

We booked this resort months ago, and after paying 50%, we got a confirmation that our rooms was guaranteed. We choose the two connecting family jacuzzi villas because of its location, near the restaurant and close to the beach and main pool. (see hotel map).

On arrival, they 'upgraded us" (like I read in other reviews) to another room, that was the family pool villa, which was in the other part of the resort, you have to cross a large, busy road. Maybe for them it is an upgrade, and yes this type of room was more expensive, but we didn't like it at all! Our kids could not walk to the reception (computer) or pool by themselves, because of the busy road, and it was also much hotter (if possible), then near the beach. Airco didn't work, so it was 30degrees in our room, and even warmer in the bathroom. Ok, there was a private pool, but we liked the main pool and beach more, as this private pool was only 1,5mx4 and it was way to hot there.
We complained of course, and got the right rooms we booked after 24 hours. They seemed not to understand that we preferred the other rooms.

After that first day, we enjoyed our stay there.
Nice clean, quiet beach, very good food at the restaurant, we loved the family jacuzzi villas, possibilities to have diner nearby (Big John and Nikki Beach), free internet.

Slightly negative: prices for drinks are on the high side!

So, if they keep the reservations as they are, this is a great place!
