Stayed here for a week and a half in early December 2016. My friend and I both stayed in rooms in the high rise building, as opposed to the bungalows lining the pool. I was quite glad that the room was nice, well-ventilated, and with strong wifi connection as we had several days of nonstop rain. Fortunately, when the weather...

We stayed here for 5 nights and could have stayed many more!! The bungalows were basic, but had all that we needed, we were right on the beach!! The beach was private and just around the point from the main stretch of Chaweng beach. The water was crystal clear, as warm as bath water and flat. Our room was cleaned...

They went to the airport to collect us from the ferry.

Turned up to be seen to by possibly the rudest receptionist on the island, after she was done shouting at a couple next to us we were shown to our 'deluxe' room even though we had requested a beach bungalow. If that was deluxe I don't want to see the standard. Single beds and a decor straight from the 40's...
