The rooms are clean and spacious and are situated around a great swimmingpool, you can skip the beach, nothing but rocks and the restaurant has only a limited part of the menu they offer, there are for instance 5 fish dishes on the menu and a variety of steaks, we couldn't get any of them during our 3 nights stay so we went to the wonderful Cook Kai restaurant, only 10 minutes away from the resort by taxi/tuktuk.
The bar was closed (we stayed there during high season!) so you have to get your drinks at a loket which was very confusing because sometimes there was no staff member there and you had to walk to the restaurant area to ask if they could get someone overthere.
They have a free pendle service by minibus on certain times to Kantiang beach or up north, however, if you want to rent a scooter they send you up the road, when we got there all scooters were hired so what to do next, we walked up the road, after half an hour of waiting in the burning sun finally a tuktuk stopped, that's why it would be so much better if they would check first if there is a scooter available with a call from the reception so you have the opportunity to let them send for a tuktuk or a taxi.
They also reay should have someone to look after the pool for security reasons, on our first day 12 big girls arrived and took over the complete pool, they were screaming and shouting, playing competition games, climbing on eachothers shoulders and then jumped in backwards and they were drinking (glass!!) bottles of beer IN the pool!!
The other guest, even grown ups let alone parents with little children couldn't get into the pool without being jumped all over and these girls got away with it because no one of the staff did warn them and you could even hear them screaming at the reception area so they sure must have noticed it. They also didn't provide pooltowels so you have to use the towels from the bathroom but then you don't have a dry towel when you want to have a shower and have to go over to the reception to get a clean one.
To put it al together, it's such a shame because the resort realy looks lovely, as you can see from my pictures, the restaurant as wel as the pool are great to see, so take care of the menu, put a staf member and a bar at the pool and it would be great, as for now ; not again in my wildest dream(s) team!
