We booked four nights here including Christmas day during our three week Thailand trip as we wanted some quiet time over the Christmas period.
We found the hotel staff to be friendly and helpful - even changing our room from a double to a twin without hesitation.
The rooms were large and clean with all the necessary faclilties.
The pools are large and during our stay only one was in use at a time whilst they were undergoing a cleaning treatment.
The hotel is opposite the ocean and Rawai beach, although you cannot bathe on Rawai beach. The hotel runs a free bus service to a nearby beach but you need to make your own way back in a taxi. There are no metered taxis at the beach but you can barter with the taxis to get a fairly low price. I think we paid 300 THB
There is a great bar next door to the hotel called Bentleys where the staff and regulars are very friendly. If you are male and don't want to be propositioned then its best to go in with a female.
There are plenty of resteraunts along the main road and you can take a taxi boat over to Coral Island for a few hours. If you go after 1pm you can get a lower price.
