Good location and family friendly

We stayed for five nights and loved it. Location is excellent and The staff were very helpful and friendly. We also got the breakfast buffet each morning which was good and meant we had one less thing to worry about. The pool space is fantastic and is definitely needed even in the "rainy season". Would definitely recommend especially if you have children.

Cheap hotel in OK location.

Pros: Price & pool.
Cons: Reception/common areas & pool bar staff.
Location: 5 minute walk to beach & central to bars and restaurants of Kata beach.
The hotel was fairly run down and in some need of renovation in the Common areas which they were doing. A lot of noise (jack hammering) near pool area but they have to work sometime. Pool was very good, clean & great temp. Rooms were clean. Staff were good except for the pool bar staff who spent most of their time on their phones than serving customers & picking up glasses from pool area. Breakfast was ok. Overall a decent hotel for the price with a 5 minute walk to beach.

Poor operation

We had booking for three nights with grand Dulux pool view and also we had required that we need a hight speed wifi. When we checked in at the first night WIFI did not work we were asking the reception for help for a couple time but nothing was done for us until morning I had to ask them again. I would say this hotel is poor of organise, poor servicese , poor training to they staff, food is not a variety , I would say I can not give them more than three stars

great pools, good location

We had one week here and the experience was very good, the rooms clean and air con worked well as it was very hot. Pools are very clean and the service was never a problem, location is close to many restaurants and bars and the pool itself has good bar/restaurant service. you do have to walk a small distance to the beach if that's where you would like to be but that was no concern for us as we prefer the pool. I would recommend this hotel for family's, singles and couples.
