Nice, quiet, clean.

It's a nice hotel back from the main drag in Rawai -- most rooms open out onto one of two long pools, and you get your own sun loungers, umbrellas and outdoor chairs. Beds are good (hard, like most Thai mattresses), you get extra pillows, the room comes with a fridge and decent AC, and a safe in the wardrobe.
Room types: the chalets look about the size of the regular rooms, I don't really see why you'd upgrade. The suites really do get you two units, though the photos don't show it, and if I was a little more flush when we stayed I would have upgraded.
Breakfast is a pretty decent Western selection including cereal, fruit, toast, bacon, sausage, french toast, pancakes, eggs, etc. The room service food is not so great though.
Rawai itself seems pretty quiet -- there are a few Thai restaurants nearby and a couple of Western/Russian ones too (although Nikitas on the seafront is overpriced and poor quality). Rawai beach is not for swimming on, it's a working beach lined with boats, so if you want to swim in the sea you'll need to take the hotel's free shuttle to Nai Harn, which is lovely.
