Pros: Location at the best part of Chaweng beach so you can choose to swim in the sea or in the well designed resort pool.
Cons: There are a few stairs to negotiate so it may not be too suited for the elderly or with very young kids.
Location: Wonderful
Facilities: Above average; Value: Bargain; Service: Professional; Cleanliness: Immaculate; The rooms across the road from the beach are actually better value and there is a nice pool there too if you can't be bothered venturing too far.
