          Trying to decide whether to go for one of the Pool view rooms or to Upgrade to the Superior Rooms for 1500 thb for the nights doing the course. Can any one advise please? what are the basic rooms like (i would pay extra for the air con room) or are we better going for superior? Are these close to the pools also?

          I had a room with air con and private bathroom. Everything is close and convenient. I wouldn't worry about your 'view' so much. The resort is very pretty, but you're not going to be looking at it from your room much.
