    Beautiful view! Great for couples & quiet serenity. Definitely recommend!!”

    The breakfast that was included was incredible (get the fried morning glory and garlic!), the pool was lovely and looked out of the ocean. And it was very quiet, even when other people were there. We were looking for a quiet escape and chose the right place. If one is looking for a party scene or walkability this place isn’t for you. If you’re looking for a gorgeous view, nice clean room with a balcony and giant tub you’ve found your match!

    Very good”

    We were given a coupon for two free meals, and we asked if we could use them for room service, and when we went to check out they tried to charge us for the meals. The meals were also not made correctly (we ordered vegetarian papaya salad, and they put shrimp in it. The restaurant staff and the hotel staff are separate, and when we tried to correct the error, they got into a big argument in front of us, which struck me as unprofessional and unhospitable. The view and facilities are very nice though. It is a good value for a couple, but not for larger groups.

    would never return”

    I am a very easy going, and from the 100+ hotels I have stayed in never really given any hotel a negative review, after reading some of the reports more people complained about their staff and issues, but still got a 4.5 star rating from agoda, which is definitely strange. here is why I am never returning, although the view at the establishment is really nice 1. booked airport to hotel transfer, upon landing, nobody waiting, had to wait 1 HOUR (and 5+ phonecalls to hotel) to get my transportation arranged, this is horrible service. 2. booked a spa treatment day before (couple package, 3500 THB) only to be given news the next day they only had 1 spa therapist available, meaning me or my wife would have to wait for each other 3 hours?? to solve the problem, they said, you can take taxi to Lamai beach, there are more spas there.. great service! /sarcasm 3. hope hotel management does something about this, the worst service I have ever gotten from any hotel.

    Duplex Pool Villa AMAZING”

    The duplex pool villa was beautiful, spacious and had breathtaking views and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The location is a bit remote and the hotel only offers one restaurant that was mediocre. There is a cute little beach resort next door with amazing food and a small beach that is walkable. The main road nearby is hilly and it does not have sidewalks so you would need to take taxis or rent a motorbike to get around. The resort is built into the side of a cliff so there are a lot of stairs so probably not a good pick for families or the elderly, but as a couple on a romantic getaway the hotel exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend and stay there again!

    Incredibly beautiful hotel”

    Beautiful views, comfy, clean rooms. The staff were helpful and friendly, the pool was breathtaking and the jetty onto the sea was lovely. Huge bath! A few comments: -We did 'all inclusive'- all 5 dishes available to us in the evening were variations on chicken and rice. As we were there for 6 days this got boring! We ended up going out. The breakfast was excellent, so I would recommend going for just breakfast but not 'all inclusive'. - On the Saturday, we got a letter through our door at 9am saying there was a wedding on the premises today so some of the facilities would not be available We decided to go out for the day to avoid this- and I'm glad we did, because when we got back in the evening it was incredibly loud!! It would have been good to have had at least 24 hours notice of this! - Although there was a variety of cocktails offered on the pool bar menu, both times I tried to order one I was told they had run out of alcohol! Not sure if this was an ongoing problem...

    Could be a nice place, but isn’t”

    The hotel has once been a nice place, but is very outdated. Staff is unfriendly and not really caring, lots of garbage in the water and on the rocks. In our room, the show wasn’t working, even though they told us they fixed it. We were then transferred to another room, where however the safety box was broken, the sink wasn’t working and the air con was very loud. There were no apologies from the hotel. When we checked out, the staff was looking at us carrying our luggage up the stairs instead of helping us with the bags. Overall, the hotel did not at all live up to our expectations of a 4-star hotel or a hotel in this price category.

    Lovely hotel in beautiful spot. Not much around but easy enough to rent a moped or get a taxi into the town etc. Room was lovely had a deluxe sea view. Was on the top floor and had great view. Would not want to stay on lower floor all you’d see is a roof. Had full board option, food was lovely but service sometimes a little ropey. Was rushed through courses quite a few times, hadn’t finished starter and mains brought out. Overall great value for money as we got a 47% discount via Agoda

    Very good location with ocean view!”

    It’s the place where I could enjoy peaceful and beautiful view! The place was gorgeous, both the room style and swimming pool with jaguzzi but still a couple of things needed. It would be better to provide the doormat at the front of the room, working table and sofa in the room. The front desk gave us unexpected answers when we asked for the a little late check-out.

    Past its prime but beautiful ”

    We got our room for last minute prices, so for us was well worth it. the sea views are amazign, both from the room and the whole hotel, and the pool is great. The whole place definitely needs some work as its a bit past its prime. The restaurant was overpriced and lacked good vegetarian options. There is an awesome beach just down the road to walk to which was amazing, but it does involve walking on like a freeway which is a bit hair raising.

    Stole money and wouldn't give me soap”

    r 2 of our 4 days housekeeping did not give us soap despite the bottles being empty, then upon checkout we were forced to pay for a drink from the minibar that we did not drink. When complaining about this to Michelle at the front desk, she essentially called me a liar. Because of course someone paying 6,000 Baht per night will try to get a 90 baht drink for free.

    beautiful small hotel with great seaview”

    The location is wonderful, the rooms are beautiful, all of the buildings very beautifully designed and furnished

    we were very happy with the room and the beautiful view, loved the design of the complex to fit into a steep hillside above the water. because the site is steep there are many stairs and steps to negotiate -- so not good for someone unable to climb stairs. there is not a beach adjoining the hotel, but a small clean and rather private beach is 5 minutes walk -- along the road and through the adjoining hotel. the location is great if you want a quiet place to stay, i.e. is not in the town it is not near shops and roadside foodstalls. there is good wifi in the public area but not in the rooms.
