My partner and I stayed here for his 30th birthday (thank you for providing cake and card) and we wanted a chilled holiday experience. So after reading reviews prior to arriving here about it being quiet were not deterred by this but were looking forward to embracing it. The hotel itself is gorgeous but there are things that just missed the mark for me to make it a 5*.. Most members of staff we found to be friendly. The odd waitress at Nest not so approachable. On 2 of our 9 mornings we weren't offered any tea or coffee! Breakfast is very good here. Great choice and variety. At the beginning of the holiday the tables were laid out every morning as you'd expect but halfway through our stay we found cutlery etc to be in a bucket on the table. I wouldn't expect this in 5* hotel. There was no poolside or beach drink service. No turn down service in the evening. No free mini bar. The halls in which you walk to your room weren't cleaned for a couple of days after drinks were spilt.Those little extras for me are what make a 5* hotel just that. Having said this everything else is wonderful. We loved the pool set up. So many choices of where to chill out. The beach is stunning though a little difficult to get in and out of but that's mother nature and out of the hotels control. There is free kayaking,American pool and ping pong table. The Beach Grill did a fantastic job. We wish we had have eaten here more. The steak was cooked to perfection. The room service food was the best I've ever had anywhere. Make sure you try the thai dishes especially beef Krapow. There is wildlife in abundance here frogs,salamanders,geckos,snakes and some of the most beautiful birds I've ever seen. There is a free bus service at 2pm into Khao Lak which is a wonderful little town. A couple of good markets (don't be afraid to haggle),loads of places to eat out. We also massively recommend the Similan Islands day trip. Snorkel with Clown fish and sea turtles all in their natural habitat. We booked this online as there was quite a price difference. Must give a massive shout out to the cleaners. They do a wonderful job daily,well worth tipping and it makes a massive difference to them. Overall beautiful stay just needs a little tweaking Read less

Located on a beautiful beach which goes on as far as the eye can see. The beach is quiet without anyone trying to sell you stuff. We sat listening only to the waves and wind in the palms. If you like quiet chilled out place then this is it. The hotel ... Squeaky clean, beautifully comfortable beds, strong shower. This place is modern with super staff. We were very well looked after and we can't speak highly enough of them all. Our advice is to eat early because there are a few issues which should be sorted in the restaurant. The quality of food was really good and tasty. If it's a quiet chilled holiday you're looking for then this in our opinion is the best you'll find anywhere. The hotel organised some excellent trips for us which were better value than using the tour company. We're going back for another holiday which will be a first for us! Read less

As a couple who usually holiday in the Caribbean I was a little nervous about going all inclusive to Thailand in case the service and hotel weren't of such a high standard but within minutes of arriving at this resort I realised I didn't need to worry. The entire 2 weeks were so perfect I really don't know where to start. The Rooms, we had a deluxe swim up and deluxe is the only way to describe it, from everything down to décor, cleanliness and situ it was absolutely amazing and the BED was like sleeping on a cloud, so comfortable and high quality. The pools, all pools were stunning and perfectly laid out, we were at the pool with the swim up bar which was great for us to get to easily from our swim up room, sunbeds were extremely comfortable and pool towels again or exceptional quality and readily available. The pool bar, this is where we spent most of our time, the staff on here provide the best service I've EVER had, they are all so lovely and attentive, special thanks to Anurak, Nanni, Jo and Tannin who made our time at the hotel simply prefect and should be praised for their excellent customer service, they are just lovely and work so hard to make you happy. The food is all of an extremely high standard with traditional Thai dishes available and a variety of other foods, the grill restaurant is excellent, try the tuna and the steak! the standard of lunches and room service available was excellent and we were never disappointed. Also love the pizza place if you want to take one away and have a night in. The drinks were so good! the cocktails, the local spirits and even the sauvignon blanc which I usually don't enjoy abroad was so good! The evening entertainment is excellent and just right for the lovely lobby bar, thanks so much to the band for letting me sing with you! Right on the beach is an amazing massage hut where the massages are so cheap but wonderful, they also do a variety of other treatments which I sampled many and all are of a very high standard. Just next to the massage huts you'll find Happy Beach, a great little bar for drinks or food all extremely reasonably priced and very good! I loved the pet pigs and dogs that are so well looked after and the owner can't do enough to make you feel welcome. We did the elephant excursion and rafting whilst we were there and it was one of the best experiences of my entire life - you can't not do it! I never thought Mexico could be beaten but this place blew it out of the water entirely, I am desperately saving to go back again next year and see all of our friends in this beautiful place. The whole hotel is visually stunning, so tranquil and beautiful which is only enhanced by the wonderful staff. I know the hotel has only recently been taken over by Le Meridien and had heard rumours that they would not continue with the All Inclusive option, all I can say is PLEASE do not get rid of this option! Your guests from the UK all loved this and were so impressed. Please pass on my praise and thanks to all staff and I look forward to our return as soon as possible. Read less
