As much as I would like to give the resort 5 stars it just isn't there yet. I think with some better attention to detail it could make it to 5 star rating. Our room was huge and comfortable, all be it a bit tired. Upon checking in we discovered ants in the master bathroom, which was promptly attended to when we informed the front desk. The pool area was nice, the kids enjoyed the pool, and I enjoyed sitting our on balcony reading in the mornings. The breakfast selection is one of the best around, it was really good, but the service was very inconsistent. We never got exactly what we ordered, even when we ticked the boxes on the room service menu, and like some many places in Southeast Asia, the food came out in dribbles, one dish for one person, and by the time that the last person got there food everyone else was done. The location of the hotel was great, just a short yuk yuk ride into town and the markets. The staff very warm and welcoming and all the meals we had were amazing. They just need to iron out some of the kinks.
