my wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in July after travelling to Penang and Phuket. We wanted something a little better than a resort style stay so chose this. We booked a transfer from the Airport and were greeted by a Bus Boy and Chauffeur with cold drinks, cool towels and free wi-fi in the car, and once we arrived, went through a pleasant check-in, only to be offered an upgrade to their Horizon Club (as we didn't book the room with breakfast) for what we considered minimal cost. This was to include breakfast and access to the club lounge (Free drinks and nibbles between 5.30-7.30, and refreshments/coffee at other times until 11pm). The hotel is very spacious, and the rooms spotless, lots of storage space for clothes etc. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful at all times, especially the staff in the Horizon Club lounge. We have stayed in several Resorts/Hotels in Thailand and this has to have the best Breakfast by far of all we have experienced (in fact all the food was amazing, compliments the the chefs !!). The pool is really good, comfortable lounges, free iced water when you arrive; there is a shallow and deep section, constantly watched by a lifeguard (good for the kiddies). There are several choices for food around the area if you want local food (local market every night 5 minutes walk or town is 10 minutes away by taxi or tuk tuk) and there is a buffet offered by the Hotel every night. We had the most wonderful stay here, the attention to detail and friendliness of the staff made it fantastic, even down to getting the housekeeping, who neatened our room and turned down the bed in the evening when we went for drinks in the club lounge. I would highly recommend the Hotel to couples and even families as all are catered for. We will definitely be staying here again.
