Beautiful placePosted Jan 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
Really, really nice hotel. Probably the nicest beach resort I've stayed at. Beach - water, sand, view - is incredible. Pools are nice too. Perfect if that is all you want to do. Only complaints are 1) the food is just OK (fine but nothing special) and 2) you are quite far from closest town so, if you want to try other restaurants or use tourist facilities (boats, guides etc), it's a bit of a trek by taxi. We were aware prior to booking but I felt it's a point worth re-iterating.

Great facilities, terrible staff and foodPosted Dec 3, 2013
Pros: The pools/beach
Cons: The staff, the food, and the drinks
The hotel pools and setting are breath taking. The food and staff however..... The first night we ate at Lotus. The food and service were both good. Price was reasonable (expensive by Thailand standards) but about $50 US for 2 people without drinks. The second day we decided to get a drink during happy hour (2 for 1). We laughed when they brought the drinks out because we thought it was a joke. In 2 plastic cups there was about 2 oz. of liquid each (brought both drinks at same time). Combined in one cup it was less than 3/4 of 1 drink at full price. That evening we had dinner at a special beach dinner buffet/grillout at Bellini restaurant. The food was simply inedible. The drinks however were normal size, showing that they do indeed make real drinks, just not during the happy hour scam. It came to about $50 a person with 1 drink. A ripoff even in America. The next day we went for a quick lunch by the pool at Bellini again. After we ordered they told us the grill was out so we couldn't get anything we had ordered. We changed our orders and then after bringing the food they said it was fixed so could get more if we wanted (obviously additional charges). We ordered a "giant" banana group drink to share (the trip was 3 couples). When it cam out it was enough for about 1 person. The worst part of this all is the hotel management lack of response to any of this. They essentially said "we will look into that" and did nothing.

Nice resort.Posted Nov 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
The resort is nice and we enjoyed our stay as the service was excellent. I think the room rates are not competitive when compared with other similar resorts in the area

This is a resort worth visiting for quiet restPosted Nov 5, 2013
Pros: The service, the beach. Every guest is made to feel welcome
Cons: The property is very narrow, therefore the rooms do not have sea views. You have to take multiple sets of stairs to get down to the beach and resto.
Location: good for couples and families. Shuttle bus to town 2 x daily but town is a busy, touristy town. Great if you want to stay put.
We spent 3 nights at this hotel, and the whole experience could not have been more rewarding. I had read some negative reviews and was a bit worried at what to expect. the staff are outstanding. The manager greets you at your arrival and comes to see you off when you leave. The food in the restaurants is delicious and reasonable. When the hotel tour selections did not contain what we were looking for, the front desk suggested that we contact directly a local on the beach and request specifically what we needed. This surprised me , as hotels try to keep all your touring to themselves. the spa had some specials, I went to 'Abracadabra', 3 treatments, lasting over 2 hours. At the end,, my therapist, had me sit up and braided the sweetest crown of hair on the top of my head. It was 2 hours of pure heaven.My only comment to the hotels is that the treatment rooms should be warmer, i was quite chilly, and it took away a bit of the enjoyment at times. Breakfast is delicious( great coffee) Every staff member had a smile on their face the entire time. The restaurant manager seems to have endless energy, he was in every restaurant at every meal, chatting, and asking if everything was to our liking. And then, to top it off, there was a wedding on the beach on the evening of our second night! All were welcome to watch. A previous review criticized the hotel for not having key cards. Oh, get over it, reviewer, they are old fashioned keys and the rooms are all very nice, and spacious!
