I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights.
Location - While it's a bit of a distance from Ao Nang, the purpose of this hotel is to rest and relax, for that, it certainly is in a good location. Although the local beach is not somewhere you would want to spend your day on, it is very stony!
Hotel - It's a bit smaller then what I expected, but the advantage of this is that is also isn't over-run which makes it (as it did with me) a good place to put your feet up. There is a shuttle bus that runs to Ao Nang as well as other places which is recommended, otherwise you will have to pay 500 THB one way (ouch) to get to Ao Nang. Staff where friendly enough, but on checking out, myself and my friend experienced we where overcharged for various items (£50 for laundry in one case), which didn't add to the experience. If you decide to stay here, I would recommend hiring a moped as it makes navigating around very enjoyable (and cheaper) for 300 THB a day. Breakfast was comprehensive, offering a buffet and the usual goodies.
Room - I stayed in a Premier room with pool access which was excellent, it was large, spacious, had a hot tub/jacuzzi to help ease away your day, just what the doctor ordered.
I would say I don't think I would stay here again, considering the cost of our stay, I would suggest somewhere which had a better beach on it's doorstep! Tup Kaek beach which is 5 minutes away offers this.
