I stayed here in 2007, and again in december of 2011. Lets take the bad things first and end with the good. Firstly, you have to like stairs to stay here, and you will probably be swimming mostly in the pool, as the nearby beach (due to ocean currents) is quite littered. There could be more sunbeds at the pool. And now the good things: the rooms (butique in our case) are clean, stylish and generally just really nice. The pool is clean, well maintained, and the view from there is priceless. The food is good, both breakfast and dinner, and they serve my favorite dish, pad see eew. The gardener is a miracle worker, and the whole resort is a lush jungle. The animal life at the resort itself is impressive. In the grounds we saw landcrabs, fruitbats, praying mantis, see-eagles, and giant barking gecko. The reception staff during our stay spoke fluent english, and were really really helpful. If you brave the rubbish at the beach and swimm south or north, there is actually a nice reef with a lot of see life. From our balcony (on the day we left) we saw whalesharks and loads of dolphins on this reef. If you walk in, you cam ask for a discount and get quite a decent one. I don't know if this goes for reservations too.
