Recent guest reviews

Arrived late morning. Were told that as our room wasn't ready, we can change in the toilets for the pool. No courtesy room. We carried our bags to the restaurant to get something to eat. Staff told us - rudely - to move, that we couldn't sit there as they are still serving breakfast for guests. As as we haven't stayed a night we don't qualify for breakfast so we have to move. Staff took my wife's bag and dumped it my the bar. And told her to move. This all happened within 10 mins of us arriving. I immediately called Orbitz and booked a new hotel - best decision I made, got the heck out of this place as fast as we could. When I told the staff we were checking out, they grabbed my passport and tried to take a photocopy - not sure why: I said to them that's my personal information, even though the staff tried to wrestle it out of my grasp. To forewarn others, the hotel is next to a construction site. There is airplane noise from flying aircraft on a regular basis. There is dance music from the clubs in and around the hotel. So overall this hotel is absolutely atrocious - from the staff to the hotel itself to the location.

This hotel is beautiful, and very comfortable. The price was very reasonable and the location is right in the heart of Chaweng. The only downside is the proximity to some of the clubs. There was a moderate amount of noise from the club music until about 4am.
