We have just returned from a week long break at the Aleenta and despite a bad start when our pre-booked transfer never arrived (note this was not arranged through the Aleenta - we wish it was!) the management and staff at the Aleenta made every effort to ensure we had a great stay even going out of their way to ensure that the agent had arranged the return transfer for us.
We stayed at the Frangipani wing of the resort and had direct access to the infinity pool from our room. It was quite secluded and save for the occasional neighbour swimming past we hardly saw anyone during the day whilst lounging by the pool. Rooms were cleaned and turned down daily and we looked forward to the nightly knock at 6pm which hailed the delivery of some beautiful canapés and forced us to pour a gin and tonic!
Although the food at the hotel restaurant is excellent and reasonably priced, there are some wonderful cheap little eateries within a few minutes walk or a short bike ride away which will give you a more authentic Thai experience. (The hotel provides complimentary bicycles for guests which we used on a few occasions).
The staff at the Aleenta were without exception a credit to the resort and although some things were lost in translation, they did their best to ensure a perfect stay for us.
My only disappointment was the jellyfish that plague this part of Thailand which meant that while we had some lovely walks on the beach, we were unable to swim in the sea.
In summary, a great holiday at a great little resort and we will definitely be back!
