This is a beautiful hotel to stay at. Some of the negative comments about steep steps etc are true but unjustified. Its on the beach in a quiet, lovely part of the island and the views, rooms and amenities are worth the steps... also, think of it as a workout without having to actually workout.
The staff are really friendly and I found them very helpful with all my requests. Yes, some of them do not have great English (some almost none) BUT they are still better than most other places and they are more than happy to try work through what you want and there was a western manager there when I stayed who was able to step in when needed. The room I stayed in was brilliant. The bed was the softest one I slept on in Thailand which was a lovely change. The showers, water pressure etc were all top notch. The food was savage, especially the breakfast.
this place is lovely to stay for a couple or people wanting peace and quiet. If you want lively, go somewhere else. Also, the roads to get to it are steep, especially the last part. Do NOT rent a bike unless you are confident on them as the road is not for beginners. However, it isnt as bad as some negative customers have said. There are quads for rent if you do want to get around and they are safer and more comfortable if you do want to drive yourself and not rely on the shuttle (be mobile yourself and dont rely on their transport is my advice as you will be limited with where and what time you can move around if you do)...but thats not a complaint, its just a fact.
Would definitely go back!
