You can get so much more elsewhere! The reception is not very receptive. They are rude and short and pretty much act as if you are a bother to them just being there. For the amount of money you pay, you would expect more.
Also, don't be deceived by the pictures, it looks nothing like what they have posted.
We planned on 4 nights, but we are leaving after 1. There are hostels more appealing and with wonderful, inviting staff for a fraction of the price.

We stay here for 6 nights in a bungalow, we were 2.
We had the first bungalow near the reception and indeed, you can hear the music from the town until 1am every night.
The worst experience was with staff: unwelcoming, unsmiling and even more they seems they do not car about you at all.
We would like to extend our stay in a better room but they did not find us any solution. We decided to leave the resort and find a new one cheaper and better.

Breakfast is a joke, really. No fresh fruits, no fresh ingredient, globally untasty.
Coffee is not a coffee but a very strong and undrinkable black water. Tea is the same. When I told the manager that we would like to not pay the breakfast, she told me that we had no choice. Regarding the quality of the coffee, she simply told me that she does not drink codée so she don't know...
Swimming-pool is ok but facilities in general are getting old and not clean.

You can REALLY find a better place at a cheaper price WITH welcoming persons: this is not the Thai hospitality, this team is a joke, management included. Pass your way, you will, for sure, spend a better stay elsewhere.

We got this accommodation free of charge as an extra to our PADI diving course. The bungalow we got was clean and decent, but didn't have warm water (which you actually don't need due to the warm weather). Also, no WIFI connection in our bungalow, only at the pool and reception. So all in all, pretty decent as it was included free of charge, but don't expect extreme luxury.
