We tried out katarocks for a night for the experience and it indeed has great views. The service was great during our stay as the staff were attentive enough to gave us drinking water while we waited for our rooms in the lounge and gave us towels when we swam in the pool without us asking for it.
We stayed in a two bedroom villa and the place is clean. The room pretty much has everything. I loved the kitchen where it was equipped with almost everything we needed. There was even a dishwashing machine!
However during our stay, the kettle wasn't working properly, neither was the induction stove and the washing machine. We called for helped a couple of times during the day for these issues. They did however changed the kettle for us and fixed the stove. They offered laundry service for free.
Overall, the service is good and the place was really nice but it would have been better if everything could have been checked beforehand if it was working and saved us the trouble from calling for help. It shouldn't matter if we are staying for 1 night or 10 nights. The place should always be in tip top condition, or guests should be made aware of things which aren't working. I mean after all, the price per night is not exactly a small amount and for the size of the resort, it should always aim to impress.
For travelers, location wise, while it is near shops around kata, the slopes are a challenge. While they do provide buggy service around the resort, I'm sure going down and up to the resort might require a fee, or you can choose to walk. It is pretty near, just that the slopes are pretty steep. So you might want to buy whatever you need before going up the resort.
