Ok but not again
We paid quite a bit of money to stay here and even though we were not expecting 5 star, the basic essentials are not included in this rate. Wifi was dreadful, no english Shows on the tv, staff would only notice to serve us when the manager was around, no room service and the rooms were basic. Location is a great spot but the rate should be way cheaper to match the quality.

The location of the hotel is excellent. It is at the centre of the chaweng Beach . on the beach. Close to many different recreation and dining options. The hotel has a very basic breakfast Rates at the hotel bar are a little pricey.
