I switched to this hotel after a frustrating experience checking into another one(Quick story: I checked in, then went to my room ready for a nice hot post-flight shower, only to discover they had no hot water. I was informed then that due to a broken solar panel, they would not have any hot water for the forseeable future, certainly not for the duration of my stay. Why they didn't tell me this at check in is a mystery. When I complained, their strange response was "how hot do you need your water anyway?")
Whatever. The point is, I was forced to find a replacement hotel fast, and used tripadvisor to find this one, which was only a few blocks from the "who needs hot water?" place I had booked first.
I am glad I made the switch. The price was just a little more than my original booking, but the quality of the room and hotel was much better. This was overall a great place to stay. The facility was clean, the staff were courteous and accommodating, the pool area was well-maintained and the breakfast was a bounty of options, including eggs made to order and decent coffee.
My room had a great view of the water, and a private balcony (or at least, private in the sense that it isn't shared... when you sit out on it, of course, you see all the others.) The main beach road separates the hotel from the beach, and it is quite noisy, but this really didn't bother me, and when the sliding glass doors were shut much of that noise was mitigated.
I was a little put out by having to pay an additional $10 per day for wifi, but at least the signal was strong to my room.
I ordered room service twice. The club sandwich was tasty, great fries, and also they make a good Tom Kha Gai. The pizza was doughy and not terribly good. They provide two free bottles of water per day, and a stocked mini bar with reasonable prices.
All in all, I am very happy with my stay and would come back.
