Great resort, but not worth the money
Posted Feb 2, 2017
Stayed in a private pool villa for 4 nights. It's a great resort in a good location, and is far enough away from Chaweng to be quiet and peaceful, but not too far.
The pool villa was nice and is located towards the beach front. The room was clean and had all of the amenities you could need. The only downside was the pool. I booked the room based on having a private pool. The pool was not really private, as it had 3 large windows around it, and the pool was only waist deep. There were no beach style chairs to lay down on next to it. So we really didn't use the pool.
Staff were nice and helpful. Breakfast was ok, but not great. The resort has scooters for hire which are an excellent way to explore the island, and much cheaper than taxis etc.
Some parts of the resort feel a bit run down and in need of an update. One thing to note is that the hotel is on a hill, so if you have bad knees or any other mobility problem, you might find it challenging moving around the place.
Overall it's a great resort, but for the kind of dollars you are spending, you would expect something special. This place doesn't have it.
