Patcharin M. Couples Thailand, June 16, 2015
Expensive and not properly cleaned room

Location, food and courteous staff
I expected better room condition for the amount of money I paid. Phone was not working and lot of disturbance and could not be rectified at all. Bed sheets were not well cleaned. Location of electrical switches is at an awkward place which is right on the frame in the middle. Didn't get a feel of 5-star.

Good for parents with young kids

Service, Food and Milk for baby's, Breakfast and other mealls
My stay was pretty good, the service is amazing, chef will go out of the way to cook anything for your baby, so you don't have to worry about what and how much food you need to carry for your toddler. Rooms are pretty ordinary, old and does not give a 5 star feel at all. The location is very nice and the whole feel of the holiday village is very clam and nice. Best for people who just want to be at the hotel and relax away from the noisy city.

Charming holiday village by the sea

Location , layout, facilitie
This was our second visit in 4 years with our 3 young kids and we had a great time once again. The Charm cottage we stayed in was charming with a small garden and hammock and a partial sea view .We visited in Aug which is monsoon season but were blessed with 5 days of clear skies .The Children's play area was under renovation and so was limited in scope of activities but the staff were great. We'll be back for sure as the allure of this property is undeniable and the staff were uniformly good without going overboard
