This is one of those hotels that is quite difficult to rate. Let's look at facts:
1. Location is 10 min drive from HuA hin
2. You need a car or to hire a moped as there is not much nearby
3. Don't confuse it with aka guti which is nicer and more expensive
4. Villas are huge and spacious
5. Cleanliness level is not what you would expect from a 5 star hotel, but it didn't ruin my stay.
6. If you are very particular about cleanliness then stay away
7. Maintenance is required, again it did not ruin my stay
8. Rooftop sala in each villa is very peaceful
9. Price - if I had paid full rack rate I would have been disappointed. However, if you can get a good deal (I paid 3500THB) then it is ok. It is not worth any more than this.
10. Staff are friendly and helpful.
Overall, if I got a cheap price again then I would return. I would rate this as 3-4 star hotel but is has potential to be so much more.
