Located directly on the Beach of Chaweng, and very close to centre of Chaweng. We had a deluxe sea view room, which is located around the pool area, the room had what we needed and was kept clean. Staff was helpful but their English skills where below what could be expected of a tourist hotel.

Booked a superior room to make use of Avios points, not a good choice as the room was dark and very dated. The bathroom was even worse with very poor facilities. Location is good on the beach at the north end of Chaweng so close to all bars and restaurants but quiet on the resort. The resort is not well...

We stayed in one of the older cheaper rooms which was really in need of renovation although it did have a new AC unit installed. It's on the beach but the area in front is not ideal for swimming. It's a bit too close to the Ark bar which could be heard in the room at night. I wouldn't recommend...

This review is bassed on a one night stay in the oldest bungalows they've got. We booked a "chaep" (1000 bath) bungalow. The room is small and not clean. It needs renovation! The windows can't be closed properly and that makes it easy for bugs to get in to your room. And there are a lot bugs over there! Also...

Originally booked Al's Huts but they were sold off and we were given the Island instead. Amazing place. Staff were lovely, the rooms were amazing and the location was just perfect. Really wonderful holiday.

Great experience at this hotel. We (myself and four other girlfriends) spent about 3 days at this island resort. Beautiful place and will definitely be coming back! Staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. We were in a two roomed bungalow and had 5 guests so they gave us an extra bed in the living room. Pool was great and overlooking...

It felt like we were showering in grey water. The shower was nothing but a hose coming out of the wall and the water smelt horrible! We were meant to have a queen bed. Instead, we had 2 single beds pushed together. It was like sleeping on a Brick wall with concrete for pillows. The staff are rude and unwilling...

I have stayed at this resort before, the reception staff and the other staff around the resort seem friendly enough and helpful, the rooms are getting a bit dated now, but do the job. They are cleaned daily with fresh clean towels etc, so no problems there. There is also a mini bar in room as well, the pool area...
