We visited for a holiday and stayed there for 3 nights.all 3 days we were either at the beach or pool using the beach bag provided in the room, However on our visit to the hotel pool i was carrying a hotel towel in the beach bag. After checking out,the staff asked me to return the beach bag and since the bag was left near the pool area i informed MS.ROONG that it must be taken by your hotel staff since it was left near the pool area with a hotel towel in it.But to my surprise she was so rude to us and dint let us leave the hotel as we had a flight to catch.she misbehaved with me for that one bag and let me reiterate we spent close to 20,000 Thai baht at your hotel and MS ROONG LEFT NO STONE UNTURNED TO EMBARASS ME AND MY GUESTS.I am shocked to receive such treatment from your staff who has spoiled my holiday with her arrogant and rude behaviour.Since we we were already late for our flight we asked her for the amount of the bag and paid her 400 bhat for the bag which was left at the pool and must be with one of your hotel staff.i am also surprised because she dint produce and receipt for the bag and started by quoting 500 bhat and later came down to 400 bhat.I felt like i was staying in a 1 star apartment for free with her attitude towards her guests. I will never recommend your resort to anyone because of ms.roong attitude towards us and keeping us waiting for our flight for that one bag.your hospitality towards your guests is horrible.I am from service insustry my self and have stayed in the best of hotels but never came across such treatment towards guests Also let me point out the a/c did not work despite of 2 complaints at reception.we stayed fr 3 nights in a burning hot room The water from the toilet pot kept leaking resulting in so much water wastage ,again complained twice and no action was taken. 3 nights of nightmare at holiday inn,it was more like a police interogation for a petty bag.seriously appalled.Never again Read less

We stayed in deluxe pool access room for 3 nights here. The receptions is perfect, a warm welcome upon our arrival, check in is quick and easy. Room is clean, big enough for me and my wife, quiet room, nice bed, good relaxing balcony where I enjoy the live jess music and band in the evening while laying down on my lazy chair beside the pool. It was indeed relaxing. Breakfast is good!! The waiter and waitress is polite, helpful and always serve with friendly smile. For me this is important top start a new day with nice breakfast and warm greetings when we are on holidays. And somehow we can always get a good table beside the balcony enjoying the view and coffee. Plenty of restaurants near by the hotel, Family Mart is just beside, a very convenient place. I just simply enjoy staying here for holidays. Read less

The Good: The family room was great in size, our 10 year old loved the bunkbeds. The activities provided at kids club and around the resort was really good. We had free ice pops by the pool, fire dancers at night, aqua Zumba and Bingo games it was all in really good spirit. The location is good too, shops, restaurants and familymart right at the front of the resort. Nightly market ( Landmark Market) just a stroll down the road. Improvements: The food & quality of food provided at breakfast NEEDS major improvement. The Thai food options was lacking in flavour and authenticity. No cappuccinos, bacon was bad quality and fatty. We did not look forward to our breakfasts and even went outside the hotel to find other options for coffee/food. If you have kids older than 6 years please be aware of the children's water slides. The area where the slides end in the pool is EXTREMELY shallow and the risk of injury is high. Management should really look into this. Not sure yet if we would return... Read less

Pros 1. Room was extra large with spacious bathroom n balcony with all essentials. Ours was a pool view room. Read another review about lack of toiletries. They provide Soap, shampoo, body lotion , vanity kit n shower cap. They had also placed a note near them stating that they would be happy to deliver any other stuff you require with compliments. I don't find anything wrong in this. 2. Service was exemplary. Right from reception, house keeping, restaurant, recreation team to kids club staff. We never felt we are away from home. 3. Check in and out were smooth. 4. Family n kids pool were amazing. 5. Kids club had a lot of activities n books for young ones. 6. Restaurant overlooking the sea was great. Food was superb n very reasonably priced. Kids eat free. For every dining adult, a kid can eat 2 dishes from the kids menu for free. Our kids enjoyed the food. 7. Location is ideal with lot of shops, variety of restaurants, 2 wheeler rentals etc. 8. We loved their KIDS CENTRIC approach. As soon as they saw our kids during checkin, they gave them activity books. On seeing the number of people, the house keeping staff placed 4 bottles of water,4 towels n 2 sets of toiletries in our room. On the first day, we visited their restaurant Inn Asia for lunch. Our food was little late, meanwhile a restaurant staff brought some colouring paper n crayons n started engaging my kids, so that they don't get bored till the food arrives. 9. We had all our meals possible in their restaurant. Tried almost all the dishes on the menu..Everything was unique n good. Cons NO NEGATIVES. Definitely nothing. OUR KIDS THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THE STAY AT YOUR PLACE. A BIG THANK YOU FOR THE EXTRAORDINARY SERVICE. Read less
