Brilliant hotel.

crosby

Chose this hotel because it gave the impression that it was part of the rain forest, we where not disappointed. The accommodation is scattered among'st the trees and plants and linked by covered pathways to a central reception area. The pools where laid out to look like natural lakes with stone surrounds and waterfalls, hidden among'st the trees. The beach is a few moments walk, and idyllic. Food is a little hit and miss but we always found something we enjoyed. If it's peace and quiet you're looking for, this is the place. Limited evening entertainment { a man and his guitar!!}, a short walk from the hotel offers a small selection of restaurants and shops {supermarkets and tailors}. Although we didn't eat out the restaurants had a good selection of fresh sea food , Thai favorites and English staples and the prices seemed reasonable {large Chang beer 100 baht = £2.35}. If you want to go further afield, a taxi service is available from the hotel lobby as well as arranged day trips at a price. We chose to visit Bang Niang market, by taxi. The round trip cost 500 baht, the taxi operator suggested a 2 1/2 hour visit before the return journey, we found this too long to have to wait, we thought an hour was more than enough time. Overall, this was a quiet, relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings in a lovely hotel with very attentive staff. Thank you Merlin Resort and staff.
