When we got to the hotel we were very impressed with the greeting we received. We got a tray of juice drinks on arrival and had a receptionist called Cindy to went over and above to check us in. However the actual rooms aren't as nice as the website makes them out to be. They're still clean regardless though so they were ok. Pool was clean. This hotel is quiet far away from central Chaweng (10 min taxi ride) so not really ideal. They also had a private beach with their sister hotel but there wasn't anything special or 'private' about it. 6 different people approached us to buy bracelets and floaties and wouldn't leave until we did. Overall, it's a nice hotel in relation to the cost but nothing to really shout about.
