Half way through our stay ... good and bad

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

An amazingly beautiful resort with ama zing staff 2 reviews in 1 really First couple of days were out of this world.easily the best breakfast we have ever had and great using both pools.we were also offered an upgrade to a pool access room but as we had just settled in to our room and unpacked we declined. We decided to extend our stay for another 7 days and were so excited. Then unfortunately the next day the resort interpreting government advice closed the pools,yoga and buffet breakfast The ala carte breakfast had a few teething problems but is improving every day but now the small private beach water seems to be awash with raw sewage that no one is able to fix :( The nearby public beach is lovely and obviously not crowded. We are still having an amazing stay but cannot help pondering how epic it could have been!!!

Nice hotel - but not 5 star quality

Wokingham, United Kingdom

I see a lot of reviews of people who had specific negative experiences and write their whole review with a negative agenda. That’s not the case here - I had a perfectly good time and no issues at all - its just not as special as I’d expect for the room rate or 5 star rating. Positives: Would recommend boat transfer from Samui. Thought I could be smart and do it myself cheaper on the way there but it’s a big hassle as gets into pier at opposite end of island. Got the transfer back and it was very smooth. Staff friendly and very helpful. Room design is lovely. ‘Teak’ style wood panelling Good location. Short walk to the main beach and village - both of which are great. Disappointments Hotel simply isn’t five star quality. Poor WiFi in the rooms, not cleaned properly (we found a contact lens on the bed), Aircon is weak and beds are rock solid (I have a firm mattress at home but this was something else). Food - big on quantity, but ‘ok’ quality. Often not hot. Jazz night! Save your money on this one. The food was cold and a bit dry (even though we arrived 30 mins after it opened). The night has nothing to do with Jazz. Basically a cabaret (which is fine, if that’s what was advertised). There’s a guy with a laptop and speakers (see picture) playing anything but Jazz (Wonderwall, Country music and even the Macarena!). There was a pompom dance to the Hawaii 5-0 theme tune, some Muai Thai dancing and a small fire show which was good In summary, nothing terrible about the hotel, but compared to other 5 star hotels in Thailand, it just doesn’t match up. Worth staying if you get a discounted rate - not for full price.
