This resort has a great location between the main road and the beach and the rooms and reception look fantastic, but they let themselves down on too many fronts for me to recommend it. For starters our triple garden view room had a definite "drain" smell which didn't disappear for the duration of our stay. The shower also sprayed all over the place resulting in a permanently wet bathroom. The gardens, path and pool area are all unkempt which lets the whole resort down. No free wifi in rooms so you have to go to reception to use wifi or pay to use one of their computers. The restaurant across the road on the beach is where you have breakfast - its a buffet with quite a wide selection (western style, fruit, thai food) but EVERYTHING was cold and tasteless - oh and runs out towards 9.30am! Suggest you get there super early if you want anything vaguely warm or fresh. In fact the only day we enjoyed breakfast was the day we went diving and missed the buffet - they allowed us to use our breakfast coupon later on in the day and got freshly cooked fried rice and a cup of decent (and hot!) coffee.
