What we say: 2.5 stars

Viewpoint is a massive budget to midrange resort with cookie-cutter rooms that stretch for as far as the eye can see. Expect a lot of hastily placed blocks of concrete that in no way compliment the beautiful natural surrounds. With that said, rooms seem well-kept and even the cheapest fan editions come with TVs. The standard air-con room we checked out was dark and lacking any shred of character. It seemed comfortable enough, but if we really wanted air-con, we'd spend the extra couple hundred baht on a much better room at Anyavee. No WiFi is available but the resort does have a swimming pool. The dinner barbecue buffet offered at the restaurant isn't bad for the money. The receptionist we met was nice, but the clan of younger orange-clad staff seem to spend most of their time making fun of foreign travellers who they assume can't understand Thai.
