            Natural environment , around 30 mins from airport. 8-10 mins walk to TESCO supermarket and Mcdonald, some restaurant as well. The hotel room is spacious and have open kitchen. The hotel staffs are nice. As there are many plants and trees around, cannot avoid mosquito, insects, gecko. There is a frog in my pool area, so i cannot swim.

            We guested the pumping machine in the pool may turned off for long time as we found no water flow in the pool. We called to the front desk and they turned it on immediately. Staffs are helpful. Few hours later, we saw large amount of brownish forthy dirt on top of the water. Finally, they use a day to fix the problem.

            Great for privacy, very cool apartments but not impressed with shared facilities”

            The apartment was very nice, clean and great for a private time. But the shared facilities like the gym, the restaurant, bar seemed like an afterthought. The rooms were 4 star but the rest of the facility was 2-3 star. This is a place to go for privacy, not for social interaction with other guests, and definitely not for facilities. Not a good place for a solo traveler. Very good for secret romance. It's also a 15 minute walk to the beach. I wish I had stayed at one of the many resorts on the beach.

            Excellent place to stay in Phuket”

            I have a wonderful time here. We rent the 3 bedroom pool villa few months ago with early bird discount. Initially I did not expect much as the price is really cheap. However to my surprise, the resort is spacious with a large and clean pool. Our kids jumped into the pool immediately. We have hired a car, which is definitely essential, giving us much convenience to sight seeing. We also drove car many times to nearby supermarket as the weather was too hot in daytime. We loved nearby Bangtao beach where our kids played sand well. The Red Room restaurant provided good choice of breadfast buffet too. Only problem is mosquito. Luckily we brought some mosquito repellent incence from the supermarket, so that we could sleep at night. The staff are nice and friendly. We have ordered BBQ dinner which was held at poolside. The chef cooked for us and there was another staff provided us drinks. Another comment is that they lack some kids playroom, but I think the private pool is already the best play area for them.

            Great spa, private pool, helpful staff

            A great place to stay! Nice and clean with friendly staff! Kids enjoyed the private pool very much. Every Monday n Thursday there's a night market nearby , can buy some nice fruit, fresh seafood and vegetables and cook inside villa. We also have BBQ inside the villa beside the pool, under starlight and it's nice n relaxing. However, the internet wifi signal is kinda weak during my stay n the staff told me there's a construction happening nearby to fix the cables. Hope this problem will solve very soon. There're some free shuttle services to the beaches and supermarket. The spa at the hotel is good too!! Basically a great and happy stay in these five days. Will definitely come back again!

            The villa was very spacious, private pool (in 3 bedroom villa) was a very good size, & room service was always prompt.

            We were very lucky and greeted with a free villa upgrade. Upon arrival they were very quick to welcome us with a welcome drink and flowers. I requested a room not too far away from the restaurant and they were able to provide. There was only one downside to this resort and that was housekeeping could have been a little bit better. I would come back to this resort anytime and I definitely would recommend it to all my friends.

            Family, especially kids (6mths, 2 & 4 years) enjoyed the convenience of a private pool, nice spacious rooms, nice spacious bath in the master with "outdoor" shower, full kitchen amenities, our only regret being that we only got to experience a short 1-day stay arising from changes to our travel itinerary due to flight changes. Prompt service and friendly staff, only issue is with the power points, where it doesn't fit the British 3-pins, seek front desk for adapters. Would love to come back to enjoy the villa and spa!

            This resort is clean and new with nice and quiet environment. But it's a bit inconvenience, as there is no other restaurants or convenience stores nearby (It takes only half an hour to Patong Beach by taxi). Though the resort provides free shuttle to Bang Tao Beach, Surin Beach and Tesco Lotus, the number of runs is not enough.

            Staff is friendly and helpful. The place is good and the room is spacious. But the walking distance to my room was quite far and we got to depend on the tuk tuk service in the resort area. Overall is good. The location is so-so, kinda far from town and taxi fare is expensive, especially if to go back and forth.

From the very cheery maids to the happy security guys. Only let down ( which should be the best), are the reception people. Completely indifferent whether you’re there or not. Otherwise great place.

            The villa has seen better days. It was a little bit worn down. ”

            Some doors couldn’t be opened, the sofa outside was dirty, nails were sticking up from the floor on the dowmnstairs terrace. And the gym was a disaster. If you looking for a workout you are better of using the stairs and/or the lawn at your own villa. Other from that we had a splendid time with our own pool, breakfast in our villa and shuttle bus to Bangtao beach. Big bedrooms and two bathrooms, big livingroom and dining area. The kids(7 & 11 years) loved it. The beach I really can recommend. Nice and clean and with restaurants on the beach. So if you are prepared with some minor flaws this is the place. Don’t miss the markets on mondays and thursdays, it’s just a close walk from the resort.

            Private swimming pool, privacy, residential

            One of the particularities is we do not have the impression to be in a hotel but rather home. Each villa is very independent and the private swimming pool is very appreciated. However the location is not that great. You need a motorbike or driver to go anywhere. And as it is not located in the nicest part of the island, I would not book there again though the stay was pleasant. Recommended to families.
