The apartment was good overall but unfinished (as it was quite new) and a bit awkward.
The air con was only in the rooms (there were 2) so the living area was boiling as there were no blockout curtains only thin cotton ones. There was no toilet roll holder, soap holder/shelf in shower, light fittings in bathroom (there were exposed wires!) There was no TV or cable (not much to do if you are sick or it's raining) and you had to pay to hire DVDs. We ate at the restaurant a few times but there was very little variety (only chicken for the Thai dishes!). The pool was nice and it is only a 30 second walk to the beach.
Hopefully this place will improve with time as it definitely has potential to be very good. The service needs to be improved too, a little too casual.
There were a lot of families staying here.
For the moment there are much better places to stay (like The Houben in Ao Kantiang which was flawless!!) in Ko Lanta.
