Get a pool access room - away from the main area and a lovely indulgence! Stayed for 7 nights in what was obviously Low Season - only 2 of the five blocks seemed to be occupied. Low key, well located hotel with access to everything Thai without the hourds of tourists and 'tackyness' of Patong. Pool was great for kids - occupied themselves on the slide for hours and pleanty of loungers. Spa massage same prices as poolside (300 bht) - great value. Only criticism was the poolside bars looked like they'd been shut down even though there was poolside service. Reception staff lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was sufficient - eggs to order, one cereal, pancakes/waffles,juice and fruit. We asked the staff for bacon and cheese etc and it was produced immediately on request for no extra cost. Popped down the road for lunch and dinner (approx 120bht per dish) at local eateries and strolled along the beach to the expected bargain bonanza shopping in Karon (turn left at the beach). Used internet in tour office for 1 Bht per minute just next door to resort. Paid 130 - 150 bht for T shirts 220-250 for board shorts at local stalls. Icecreams on way home from lunch for the kids (10 bht)and banana pancakes after dinner (40 bht) all made it very affordable!
