The hotel isn't quite in the location we thought probably due to our map reading skills however we were not disappointed. The transfer from the airport to the hotel and checking in was quick and painless.
We had rooms in the hillside and loved them. The rooms are massive and very comfortable. They are made up each day and we had fresh bath and beach towels even when we hadn't requested them. Only made breakfast a couple of times (late nights and comfy bed combo) and it was good. There is a restaurant and pool hillside which is very handy. Yes there are a number of steps down to the main road and then over to the beach but nothing to get annoyed about. Just think about how toned the calf muscles can get! The pool by the beach is lovely and doesn't get very crowded. No need to worry about reserving sunbeds!
We walked in to Chaweng along the road and via the beach. No problems either way although the beach route is less smelly!
Found Hugo's Bar on the walk back along the road the first night and we ended up there for a nightcap or 10 most nights. Toby and his partner are very welcoming and friendly. Give it a go.
All in all a great hotel in a good location. We would definitely go back.
