For about $4 they will make you a fruit "slushy" with any kind of tropical fruit - I had three per day and stayed for three weeks. I loved this place because it was quiet and 15 minutes from downtown - so little to no outside traffic here - perfectly safe.
The layout means you can hang by the infinity pool and look out at the ocean, or walk down to the ocean or along the beach in the morning - it's a beach vacation place and there's always a good view. Access is somewhat limited like in Malibu, CA, so the beach feels private, except for a couple of vendors who come by each day selling thai massages, horse rides and stuff like that.
The hotel is led by an American and managed by a European, but with all Thai staff - and they are some of the nicest people on the planet. Not just at this hotel, but I mean the Thais - just a friendly, generous people. Be nice! Don't be the terrible customer that gives us a bad name!
At this point in my life I've probably been to 1,000 hotels in 40+ countries. I would rank this high. It's not like a Hilton or Four Seasons, but more like staying at a good friend's (large) house on the beach. It's the definition of a boutique hotel.More
