Sorry guys, did not realise this fab Hotel was listed on here. We have stayed here twice once in the summer of 2011 and again with friends at Christmas 2011. The owners are friendly and always willing to have a chat. The staff (especially the absolutely adorable house keeper) were all attentive and friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble for them.
One of our friends is disabled so the lift was essential. As with any mechanical device, one night, returning after a few drinks, he found the lift not working! Now the spiral staircase is fine if you are able bodied, but when you are not good on your feet and need a walking stick, it can seem very frightening. Unless, that is, you have staff jumping up to help you, one helping by leading the way and another quite comically supporting you bum! Needless to say, fear gave way to serious hilarity and he got to bed fine. Can you imagine that in most UK hotels?
Rooms cleaned and service daily, tea and coffee facilities in the room and topped up generously daily. Good quality decor, good quality shower gel and shampoo supplied as well.
As some have mentioned, the noise from the show can be heard, there is no point denying it, but as the show is usually over before midnight, it rarely posed a problem. If you are staying over two weeks, see if they will give you a discount as well. We got one which made the room an even better deal and was at least 25% cheaper than the advertised rate.
We would have gone back this summer but we got such a good package deal (see my Amari Orchid review) that we could not turn it down.
I feel given the location (not the hotel itself) that it might not suit families, but you could always have a look if you are actually there.
The show is very good, however I have been going to Thailand for over ten years and they have lost some of their appeal for me personally, but even I tend to pop in a couple of times. Oh, don;t miss happy hour from the beach , two for one on most drinks and they make a great gin and tonic. Runs 4 till 7 I think (better check the board outside)
