On the basis of mostly glowing reviews from this site, we opted to stay at this 'resort' for 5 nights. We could live with the fact that it's location was away from anything of remote interest and construction at the building site next door began each day at 7am. We also tolerated the unfriendly and unhelpful attitude of the staff. The preponderance of Burkhas, the fact that the only alcohol served there looked like it had been there since the 70's and the totally empty mini-bar indicated a distinct muslim favouring. Deal breakers however, were the filthy conditions of the sea village room and the broken shower covered in mildew, the feral cats happily defecating around us at the beach bar, the shabby pool and sad little swim up bar. The staff deferred to my husband at all times and completely ignored me, including the offer of tea or coffee at breakfast. We decided after the second night to cut our losses and utitise the only positive thing there, being the free internet, to look at alternative accommodation. We relocated to the amazingly wonderful Andaman resort at Datai beach which, by the way, was a mere $40 more a night - talk about the ridiculous to the sublime!
