This was my second stay at The Peninsula - the first time I was blown away by the experience. This time I'd come from staying at the Layana Resort in Koh Lanta which I think has ruined me after providing the best service a person could have. Every other resort will now suffer as a result!
Still, it is pleasant enough. The pool area is lovely after a busy day shopping although it does get quite noisy with the barges coming past. The breakfast is a must do as well - incredible choice of food.
One thing that did strike me as that you could find you've had a whole day running around and come back to the hotel late afternoon and find the room hadn't been cleaned. I just thought this was odd for a five star hotel. Twice we had to call to see if they hadn't forgotten us - maybe they don't have enough cleaning staff or maybe they were very busy. Either way, this should be improved.
I enjoyed getting the boat around and the staff on the boat were fantastic. We found a couple of great restaurants down in the River Centre and enjoyed visiting there. Makes it easy to get around.More
