We booked a standard bungalow for two nights. Check in was fine, offered cold face cloths and drinks. However when we arrived at our beach bungalow, we found there was a lot of openings in the bungalow allowing all sorts of wildlife in (in particular gecko's) and the air conditioning was no match for the heat outside.
We went to reception to ask if there was another room available that was more enclosed. The staff especially Joy were extremely helpful and showed us to a superior room. It was massive improvement, good sized room, concrete built, well sealed in and the air condition was great. We got this up grade thanks to Joy for €15 extra per night which was great for what we got. We ended up staying four nights, two nights more than planned.
The resort is nice and relaxing, swimming pool is great but the water in the sea is really shallow so swimming in it was really hard, you have to walk out really far, which was strange. The restaurant and bar were great, loads of staff and the food was lovely and reasonable enough for a resort. There was one waiter that got on my nervous, I can't remember his name but his laugh was as irritating as hell. He kept interrupting us during meal times talking absolute crap to us.We felt he was fishing extra hard for tips which was annoying.
This resort is a bit out of Ban Tai and taxis were between 150 to 200 BHT one way. If you want to go to Hat Rin, it was nearly the same although Hat Rin is a greater distance. We were looking to relax so this was the perfect location and we had the option of joining the madness in Hat Rin also.
In all great resort, great staff (except for the guy with the really irritating laugh). Would definitely stay again.
