Resort is lovely, small enough not to be overwhelmed by crowds and yet not sooo tiny that it feels inadequate. The boat guys on the island across the beach are friendly though not pushy, so do organise a day trip out for yourself to Hong Island. Right next door to the resort is a mini mart where snacks, beers, etc can be bought at non 5 star rates. Next door also, Mother House, non pretentious Thai food at reasonable prices, very good taste...some of the best Thai food we have had ever. The hotel food available only at Kitchen is not bad at all, though pricey. Speaking of food, 10 mins walk down to Klong Muang Plaza (Sheraton side), Royal Clay Oven was good Indian food if you tire of Thai-- much better than Gajanana we thought which was similar price but food was "diluted".
I give this 4 stars and not 5 because: a) breakfast was mediocre, hardly any variety (perhaps low season) and taste very dull. b) staff at Kitchen just lounged around, hardly had any initiative to look around the see our arms flying up n down for assistance. c) the tall pool guy, was never around to open the umbrellas or lay the towels- it felt like we had to do it all ourselves. moreover, while at the pool, no one ever ever came by to ask if we could be helped (food, drinks). and after walking over to them to order, the left overs wouldnt be cleared for hours literally- Very poor service by tall pool guy and the restaurant staff, generally...though some of them did make an effort. Just not trained for 5 star resort of SLH class. Overall, would recommend this for families, as away from Ao Nang, lovely rooms, friendly people. Please train your staff though. Spa was good value we thought. Lastly, pls make the breakfast spread better.
