We stayed for four nights in June, and overall we were extremely satisfied.
The good: the room was big and the bed was comfortable. The pool was really nice after a hot day's touring around. The dinners in the resort restaurant were excellent, and reasonably priced. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and we didn't have any problems communicating with anyone. We hired electric scooters one day for $8. Lots of fun and very reasonable.
The bad: breakfast wasn't bad, but definitely below par. No real juice, cheap sausages, sweet white bread etc. You can't walk anywhere; you'll need a scooter, car or horse cart to go anywhere of interest and to go out for dinner in Nyaung U. If you're going out for dinner in taxis a few nights in a row it's going to take a good 40 to 50 dollars extra from your budget.
We were really happy overall. It really felt like "a resort", and it was a quiet haven after a day of walking, cycling, haggling and shopping. Would stay there again if we ever go back to Bagan.
