Can anyone let me know if they've stayed at this hotel recently and what they thought of it. In particular I'd like to find out what the superior rooms in the main part of the hotel are like.
On paper the hotel seems to fit a lot of our criteria in terms of location, setting, price etc but I know there are some mixed reviews about the rooms in the main part of the hotel. I know we could upgrade to one of the villa type rooms nearer the pool/sea but we actually quite like being on a higher floor if you get a nice view (ideally sea view) and privacy from your balcony. Although the other rooms are no doubt nicer I'm a bit concerned, from past experience at other resorts, that you may have less privacy if you are on ground level. Anyone who knows this hotel maybe able to advise?
Alternatively, if anyone has any other suggesstions of hotels in a similar price bracket that might suit our needs that would be great. Our main criteria would be a 3-4 star hotel in a picturesque setting, reasonablly close to local restaurants, amenities although we don't mind being a bit 'out of town' if you can jump in a taxi/tuk-tuk and not have to travel too far. Ideally we'd like a decent standard of room with balcony/terrace that offers nice views of some description. We are less concerned with direct beach access and would prefer maybe jungle/hillside setting with views if such a place exists!
