We stayed at the Regency Resort for a long weekend break over Chinese New Year 2014. It is a really nice hotel, well run, very friendly, helpful and efficient staff and spotlessly clean. The location is on the road just behind teh beach, so getting to the beach is a short (5 min) walk. There is also a shuttle (golf buggy) back and forth to the sister hotel on the beach if you are feeling lazy - we got it a few times as it was there waiting, but the walk is really nothing.
The pool is nice (although a little cool in February!) and there are plenty of sunbeds around to chill out. The swim-up bar is good and has nice cocktails with a happy hour at around 4pm.
We went for a suite room for a bit more space which was very pleasant. A nice big roll-top bath in the middle of the bathroom and a decent shower too. Comfy bed, big balcony overlooking the pool, spacious lounge area and all spotlessly clean and in perfect condition.
The breakfast buffet has a reasonable spread of nice food - not huge, but enough to have a pleasant breakfast. Included both Western and Asian options, live egg counter, fruit, hot dishes and all the usual options. The lunch and dinner menus were not big, but what we ordered was tasty, well presented and reasonably priced. The restaurant is not busy though of an evening as most people, like us, choose to eat along the beach.
The only small, tiny in fact, criticism we could come up with was that the in-room toiletries (shampoo etc) were not great, certainly not up to the standard of the rest of the hotel. But other than that, we had a perfect stay. The staff were really warm, friendly and helpful.
I don't understand the construction site noise comments left in other reviews as there was no such noise when we were there (Feb 2014) but obviously such developments come and go quickly.
