The standout feature of the hotel are the rooms/pool/breakfast and location. Pool is great except it is really cold. Breakfast is good but limited - you do not get to choose your eggs or how they are made, and the queues can be quite chaotic, as well as finding an empty table.
Rooms are super quiet and the bed is huge, good tv, shower works great, plus ample cupboard space. A/C works well.
Staff are generally friendly (or super friendly by Thailand standards) - I didn't have too much interaction with them but all was well. You get 2 free bottles of water every day which was nice, and nothing was stolen (safe is provided as well).
Do not use the tour concierge person at the hotel - they do not give discounts, just walk 30 meters down the road and there is a very friendly tour operator there.
All in all, a good hotel in a great spot.
