We were very lucky with the weather at our recent stay, seeing that July is in rainy season, weather changed as we were about to leave. Good location of hotel and lovely beach. The Deluxe Ocean rooms are near the pool and beach front, which was very convenient, we preferred this to the very large family pool. Great breakfast. Bathroom could have been better, looking a bit dated and tired, air-con bit noisy but worked well, overall great value for money and gardens and water features around hotel lovely. Beach clean up is a great idea, which the hotel have on their activity programme, as sadly plastic washing ashore is very evident some days. Read less

We are a large family (7 adults and 10 children) who stayed here at beginning of July on a Scoopon deal for 10 days.

We are a large family (7 adults and 10 children) who stayed here at beginning of July on a Scoopon deal for 10 days. Some stayed in the family residence (2 bed/2 bathroom- but no bath) which was suitable for our needs- large size (but a bit tired looking) and about a 300m walk from reception area (although buggy service was available- the kids LOVED Batman- but sometimes a 10min wait so we found it easier to walk and also hired a scooter that we could park out front of our room). Others had the private pool villas which were great as they were often in the shade and rooms were large with big verandah and huge bathroom including bath and outside shower) and some were in the deluxe rooms (closest to beach with 2 double beds). The inclusions from Scoopon (including massages-amazing, cocktails- delish, and buffet dinners with a variety of different speciality nights on offer-thai, Italian, Mexican, BBQ to name a few) were great and we would definitely recommend and return here if we could get another deal like that! One of ur favourite resorts (and we have stayed in many) and locations despite it being low season. Definitely recommend a day trip to the waterfalls (down the road that leads to mini golf and keep going all the way to the end) and it is worth the effort to walk up to level 4 (level 2 has the best swimming though👍) Read less

We went around resort whu h is quite big. Suggest hotel to maintain an air-conditioned sitting room with tea/ coffee and light snack for the benefit of waiting people in humid and hot conditions. Total staff is supportive and smily.Food great. Buffet spread was great.Rooms quite big with all amenities. Wi fi was not that smooth some times. As we are vegetarian , staff took care of us. The pools are fantastic. Mountain pool was interesting. Lovely place to stay. Great beach. Read less

We stayed on a 10 day package in the Ocean wing during early July. We were astounded at the value for money throughout our stay. We were close to the pool and beach in a spacious room that had been recently refurbished and was very comfortable. I needed a computer desk while there and the room was ideal. The buffet evening meals were excellent as was the extensive breakfast. We specially want to express our thanks for excellent service from Tony and Ida from the Talay Thong restaurant and Rainy from the breakfast buffet. We also had great service from Pa at the Cenvaree Spa. Overall, we found the staff to be a delight. The Resort occupies an extensive footprint between the main road through the town and the options for accommodation are extensive. This has been an excellent value break from the cold Melbourne winter. If we could rate it at 4.5+ in this system, we would. Read less
