This is a massive, family-orientated resort that's frequented by tour groups.
It has some completely over-the-top design touches like gigantic Angkorian bas-reliefs and water-spouting elephant statuary, but what the hell, you are on vacation in Thailand after all. The rooms are a bit of a snooze but are fully equipped with a minibar, air-con, satellite TV, safety box and a balcony. It's in a good location, just off the beach road but is still all about the pools — there's a kids' pool with slides and fountains and a main pool with a floating bar, a massive pool deck, and more Angkorian carvings. Some have much, much better views than others — so ask for one of the good ones when you check in. The Bayan Restaurant out front is pricey but does good-value buffets. Be wary of compulsory holiday gala dinners for 3,000B.
