Second time this year back staying at this property. During this time only the pool villas was available and they are huge. Two bedrooms with private pool. Only thing i missed in the villas was a smart tv so i could connect netflix. Breakfast To my surprise they got a healthy menu wow great work. Gym - my favorite part. Now we talking, Full range of Hammer strength / Life Fitness equipment they have not saved any money but only the best. You can do all your Fitness,Lifting and cardio here. Trainers was available. They had a counter where they selling Gatorade and a few other things but one thing that would be even better if they serve protein shakes. I have a feeling this state-of-the-art facility will be very busy with right management and even some customer from outside to purpose day passes to use it. Great work. Read less

The location of the hotel is really nice, it’s right on Karon beach which is nice. I will definitely go back to stay here again ❤️ Read less

As foreigners we were treated disrespectfully and ignored. Food was very poor and wait staff were very abrupt and rude. The parking staff and ckeaning staff were very friendly. Villa was nice but overall treatment was very poor.
