Do they supply pool towels??
The system has been changed slightly, each guest is given a pool towel card (1 per guest) when they check in. This card can be exchanged for 1 Pool Towel and the card must be returned when checking out, If the pool card is not returned then there will be a charge for 1 Towel per card not returned.

Not sure if this is too late to be of use... We got a taxi from the airport, not prebooked we just walked outside to the taxi rank. It was 1000THB. On the way back, we used the hotel transfer service which I think from memory was 1500THB. Enjoy your trip.

"always do your due diligence when choosing."
"Rooms at the back are for adults only with a "private" quiet pool if somebody wants a break."
"Keep away from access road"
"9505 or ground level =all direct access to pools."
"Quietest rooms are at the back in the Garden area. Good for small children who need naps. There are no lifts so ground floor can be good."
