It's a Thai-style resort and rates are higher than what you'll pay elsewhere for more or less the same standard. Most of their rooms are family/group orientated and the best are two bedroom suite-style affairs, which share a common lounge area with a basic kitchenette to the rear. These could be suited to a family travelling with teenage kids, as there is plenty of space and these rooms are the closest to the beach. Facilities include WiFi, a big fridge, air-con throughout and a flatscreen TV in each room. The cheaper rooms, towards the rear of the resort, are not such good value. There's no swimming pool, which is a disappointment at this price point. The cheapest bungalows are at the rear of the resort. Next door you'll find JJ's Hamburgers.
