I stayed here twice during my trip to Thailand. The first room I had was the beach villa which was amazing if you like lots of room, a big comfy bed and a great view. As soon as you open the doors you are footsteps away from the beach and can hear the waves at night. The beach gets fairly...

We were expecting better from a place with 4 stars on trip advisor. Unfortunately this place did not meet our expectations. We booked for 5 nights but left after the 1st even though we werent able to get a refund. We just wanted to get out of there. The staff didnt seem surprised at all. I wonder if this happens...

I wonder if you wrote this review for the wrong resort as we do not have Beach Villas at our resort. If you did stay with us I apologise that our staff were not as friendly as you would have liked.

The beach itself is great. Unfortunately not so was the hotel - very basic room, old grey-colored towels and bedding, awful breakfast. Also the constant canalization smell in and outside the room (we stayed on the ground floor, but you can smell it everywhere around the hotel).

We stayed here for 2 weeks in the top floor Grand Seaview room. It was perfect, we loved it.

We spent 3 nights here in a Beachfront Balcony Suite. The room was very nice, on the second floor with a beautiful view of the rocks on the cove and palm trees. The room was large, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was okay - it was buffet rice, curry, eggs, and fruit which were generally cold. You could order one hot...
