“Booking mix up - annoying”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

I had booked for 3 nights a 2 bed apartment and when we arrived were informed that, we could only stay one night or 2 more but only if we moved to the one bed apartment. As there were 4 of us that wasn't an option. I suspect they had a longer booking that they prioritized over us. Not great impression for my husband who had just arrived in Thailand.

I think the clue is in the name. It is more like a housing estate than a hotel. I suspect many people who stay here are long termers with cars etc as the location is not great. It is quiet, but the beach is dirty and there is only really one restaurant within short walking distance.

The accommodation is nice though, spacious and good quality, big terrace and comfortable with most mod cons. If you pre arrange breakfast can be brought in to eat in your room, which is a great service.

Pool is big but needs a refurb, cracked tiles - my son cut his foot.

There are much nicer places to stay on the Island.

House: we had a lovely house near the pool with lots of privacy, two balconies and a kitchenette. Everything was clean and the staff had an eye for details to make you feel welcome.

Location: perfect for people who do not mind to travel 3 minutes by bike or car to lamai beach. The resort is a peaceful place, but not to far from lamai nightlife. You need a car or a bike which you can rent at the resort if wanted.

staff: the staff is really helpful and honestly tries to give you a nice vacation. At the reception Engish was spoken fluently.

Others: the swimming pool was nice, was taken care of and had a ball :) We went to quite a few resorts but this one we liked the most. It also was good value for money. If you don't want to stay in the middle of drunken parties, this is the place to be.

Very nice hotel in a wonderful, peaceful garden. Spaceful and clean cottages. Friendly and very helpful staff. We stayed as a couple for 10 days and everything was perfect. The only thing that could have made it better was location closer to the beach - only 200 m. to the ocean, but the beach wasn't too clean. Lamai beach is only 8-10 min away on scooter, so no problem.
