This place is a time warp, an ode to 1980s resort design.
Great views, location and and extensive selection of facilities. Definitely worth the relatively cheap prices they are charging online, which includes a decent buffet breakfast.
But there are issues. The big one is that it's an old and fading five-star property where some of the infrastructure, especially in the rooms, should be replaced.
The TV was no good and a power point actually detached from the wall when I pulled a computer plug out.
Meanwhile, the bathroom and beds are 15 years out of date.
The guest mix is also jarring at times. The ambiance is set by whichever ethnic group dominates at the time. Indian one day, Chinese the next, Russian the day after.
This can be a little overwhelming for other guests. Who wants to go for a swim when the pool is packed with Indian pump salesmen?
That said, on balance I'd recommend it to people with no pretensions who are looking for a couple of days away from Bangkok.
