Every day we have had really good coffee from here. Joob’s Flat White is really recommendable for the perfect mix of expresso and milk. Finding good coffee here has been a challenge, but this works! Thanks Joob and Co we are coming back!!

One week family (2 adults, 2kids) visit. Clean and quiet resort ca. 20min. car ride from Patong area. Whole staff is very friendly, housekeeping keeps room clean, pools and beach are clean. All good as far as we have experienced. Shuttle bus to/from Patong Beach a big plus.

Dear AkiK360, Thank you for the review! We're glad to welcome you and your family to the resort and we're happy to hear that the staff is friendly, among many other positive experiences. And yes, we do not allow sun bed reservations as it is based on a first-come-first-served basis. We look forward to having you back again soon!

Awesome holiday and I would repeat it in a heart beat (Not in April though, was too hot). Definitely take a pool access room, worth the extra money. But they don't allow swimming at night, which is ridiculous, just discuss with management and they wont bother you.

Dear Mandy S, Thank you for the review! We're glad to hear you had an awesome holiday and that the pool access room was worth the money. In regards to swimming at night, we don't allow it for safety reasons as there are no lifeguards on duty at that time. Thank you again for visiting as we hope to see you again soon.

If you want to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the manic night life of Patong, this is NOT for you......This is a beautiful, out of town location, where Mariott have once again brought their quality facilities and services to the fore. The obvious downside is that

Dear MikeyEss, Thank you for the review! It's great to hear you enjoyed the location and the services. And yes, the taxi is quite expensive but we do have complimentary shuttle buses going to Patong. In regards to the "rocks" on the beach, they are corals that provide homes for marine life. The beach is a reef. And we would never quote THB 30,000 per person for breakfast, this is the first time we've heard about it since opening. Regardless, we hope to welcome you back again and look forward to serving you.

They do have a small slide in the family pool. Not sure if suitable for 2 year olds on their own. It’s been a while since my son was that age.
