    Ok but not again

    We paid quite a bit of money to stay here and even though we were not expecting 5 star, the basic essentials are not included in this rate. Wifi was dreadful, no english Shows on the tv, staff would only notice to serve us when the manager was around, no room service and the rooms were basic. Location is a great spot but the rate should be way cheaper to match the quality.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    The location of the hotel is excellent. It is at the centre of the chaweng Beach . on the beach. Close to many different recreation and dining options. The hotel has a very basic breakfast Rates at the hotel bar are a little pricey.

    Party here but stay somewhere else

    The thumping base music starts at 2:pm and goes nonstop until 2:am there is no escape from it so if you are under 25 years old and want to party till you puke every night this is the place to stay. It however was a total sausage fest for our entire stay except or maybe including the ladyboys who show up after midnight to see what they can find. This place also does not accept credit cards so you can forget charging to your room. There is no advantage to staying here but you can be guaranteed you will not be sleeping before 3:am on any night.

    Stayed with wife. The good: the staff is really nice and the check in/out experience was great, fast and friendly. The staff are really nice and smile all the time. The location is the best place you can get. Right in the middle and if you like night life this is the place to be no doubt. The pool is amazing and has a bar in the water - the dining area is right on the beach and always alive so it’s really nice to sit there. they have another pool just for guests which is great. a beach area where you can go in the ocean with showers outside to wash before you jump back in the pool. It’s really nice and relaxing. (If you rent a scooter they have parking too, travel guides for activities and ATM) ...they have pool tables, Good DJ’s and music. The Bad: well... I wouldn’t say bad. Nothing is bad there. Some people say it’s noisy but it is a party hotel (the best one). they have rooms that are further away so it’s not noisy and they do close the music at 2AM - you’re probably awake at that time anyway) The food and drinks are expensive - but hey..it’s nice to sit there. The fire shows are great but sometimes the smell of the gasoline can be too much. Yes you do hear airplanes since it’s close to the airport. But you hear them in every hotel. TOO MANY DUDES !!! (They need to give women half price or free drinks) To sum it up: Amazing experience the choice of this hotel was great. Central with walking everywhere Would I return ? Definitely !!!

    Stayed 7 nights in Dec 2019
