We just left the hotel and it was one of our favorites so far. The rooms are spacious, with an attractive minimalist design with lots of cement. The beds come with only sheets, but you can ask at the front desk and they have blankets (I tend to get cold at night). They have A/C and also a powerful ceiling fan for those who don't need the A/C. Pool was spotless, and the breakfast was very good. It was a set menu of bacon, eggs, bread, tea/coffee, juice and a fruit plate. The staff were very nice, there was always a tuk tuk driver outside and it never cost more than $2 to go anywhere (there were 3 of us). We ordered a smoothy and panini from the poolside bar and it was delicious and decently priced. Great areas for lounging around and the showers now have shampoo and soap. In-room Wifi was a tad bit slower than our last hotel but worked perfectly fine. They even have an iPod docking station. The overall feel of the hotel is calming and relaxing from the moment you drive up and they have multiple spa services for those who can't go without (I did not try any of them). It was not a familiar hotel for most tuk-tuks but they all ended up figuring it out and we brought their card with us just in case.
