After staying 6 days at this resort Iv pondered what I would write in this review over in my mind a few times... the room is huge but everything is so far set apart, I wouldn't say it's a bad thing but it dis-associates you with the hotel and in some instances that is nice but in others it makes things annoying. The lay out of the hotel is extensive but I feel like I have no privacy every direction you turn another room can see into yours it seems, and in turn i can see into theirs. Iv tried to decide if that would be the case for all rooms and I think it would, some would be particularly bad!
Yes the views are fantastic but you can't open any blinds with out playing hide and seek with your neighbours
Breakfast is nice but seems to be on repeat day in day out, though the omelet station is nice.
The pool is not too crowded but expect constant Chinese people doing "photo shoots"
We ate at both restaurants, prices are to be expected not super expensive but not cheap enough to be rushing back especially when the food just has no special element to it.
The location of the hotel is not too far from Patong if you wanted to sight see but getting a taxi there and back was more effort then it seemed necessary for some reason... Grab taxi app worked well and cut out any price confusion/ haggling.
Would I stay at the hotel again? No I probably wouldn't... not because of anything specifically but then there was nothing great that stood out either. It lacked activities considering it was far from any where and it also seemed like they had no concierge to even plan things, not that we tried so they may have (but if they did they keep it a secret as it's not in any of the brochures in the room etc)
Also I must mention the tuk tuk they use to take you from your room to breakfast, reception etc is fun the first time then you realise it's just a rough ride in the back of a truck in horrible heat. There is nothing fun about that!
