We stayed 11th - 25th Jan. We arrived quite late, so after a shower, we went to the hotel restaurant for dinner. Was very suprised to find that the food was excellent quality and reasonably priced. The beers were a little pricey compared to everywhere else, but still cheap compared to England! There is a hotel next door with an excellent restaurant which is about half the price though and we ate there a few times. Also, along the beautiful beach (to the left) is Lay's Restaurant. Again, excellent food at very good prices. (Try the calamari, £2 for a massive dish). The hotel was very a good size, with a nice big pool and a smaller adult pool. The adult pool was always very quite and very relaxing, I felt that the rooms could do with a lick of paint in places, but overall very comfortable. We were on the top floor, where the rooms are a bigger size and I would recommend paying slightly more for these. Very good breakfast, with different Thai dishes available daily. The hotel staff were all very nice and spoke English well. Also, the day trips on offer, the mopeds for hire and the massages at the spa were all the same price as outside the hotel. A free shuttle goes into town at certain times of the day, otherwise pay £2 and you can go in on the hour. I felt it was a good location, due to being just far away from all the other resorts and because of this, the beach was much quieter and I also felt the best restaurants were in the surrounding area too.
