Good budget Hotel

The Hotel was nice in general and my kid enjoyed a lot for playing in pool but it some case needs to be improved. For example beach was not in good condition, kids club was so smelly and without appropriate entertainment, defected power outlets and exhaust fan in our bathroom Hotel staffs were very kind and helpful.

Secluded and calm

Nice hotel, friendly staff, good facilities, great for kids, BUT, if you want a swimming beach this is not the place. It is tidal and even at high tide only waist deep and not clear waters like other parts of Thailand. We did hire paddle boards and kayaks which was fun. Pools are really nice though. On the one hand being away from the hustle and bustle is great, only down side is you can't just walk out to restaurants etc, everything is a taxi ride and that definitely adds up. Couple of restaurants close by though that were good - The Beach Bar, Sawadee, and Curry Nights. On the whole a great family holiday and we had a thoroughly relaxing time.
