We are retired and have just returned from a fun and relaxing break at the KC Beach Club. The location was great - slightly to the southern end of the very busy Main Street and right on the lovely Chewang Beach. The water was wonderful, some small wave action and lovely clean white sand. The 'party' pool was great and we spent many hours relaxing on the lounges, swimming in the pool and ocean and, for the most part enjoyed the music provided by the DJ.
The Saturday afternoon pool party was excellent - a bit of an eye opener - but I had read a number of reviews prior to our booking so knew what to expect. Lots of people of all ages from all over the world, so we felt very comfortable and welcome. The drinks were a bit expensive compared to other establishments nearby.
The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentative. Breakfast was excellent every day - in fact staff got to know our personal preferences and on the last few days were anticipating our every need. The lunches we ordered by the pool were good too. The dinner menu is quite varied and we ate in the restaurant a few times - the Thai cuisine was excellent but some of the other dishes were a bit hit and miss.
The hotal is only about 10 months old (since opening) and the rooms & balconies are a nice size and adequately furnished - very slick looking. The bed very comfortable, the settee hard as a rock and no single sitting chair....we moved the 2 chairs from the balcony in as required. Whilst there were numerous power points in the room they were not sensibly located!!!! Had to boil the kettle either on the floor or on the bedside table....it worked but was not particularly safe or convenient. Insufficient hanging space in the wardrobe / cupboards.
Housekeeping changed the towels, made the bed, swept the floors etc each day. However, the bathroom really needed a thorough clean mid week. Whenever we needed any extra toiletries etc these were happily provided.
General maintenance within the rooms will need to be improved to keep the hotel at its best. Example, after using the shower, water leaked across the bathroom floor and under the vanity (this seems to be a common problem in many rooms); a wooden vent panel on the side of the large spa bath kept falling out; in the middle of the night a part of a 'down light' fitting fell out!
Whilst it is advertised that there is a Gym and a Spa these are not actually located at this site but up at the KC Overwater Villas. There is a regular shuttle bus between the 2 resorts which takes about 20 mins each way and times are not always suitable. We did use the Spa and it was excellent but after our 2 hr treatment we had to wait an hour for the next shuttle.
Even with these criticisms, both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
