Fantastic holiday vacation

After reading a lot of negative reviews on Trip Advisor, as any normal human we had some reservations. However we could not have wished for better holiday facilities. We stayed in a family suite over looking the back of the hotel, it was beautifully quiet (apart from the abundance of birds), with a large balcony with panoramic views of the sea. With a separate bedroom for the children, sitting area and 2 bathrooms, plenty of space. Good points - every meal wonderful (not one upset tummy) and very helpful with my daughter only able to eat gluten free. Also a really good variety across the different restaurants. - beach area fabulous, lots of sun beds & very clean. Beach area did have coral under foot, but i didn’t need need to wear beach shoes & Bamboo bar lovely as so were the staff. (Especially the lady manager (sorry not got her name) - pool area, sun beds available without problems (or people reserving them!) - banquet nights, good value and popular (advisable to book). - shuttle bus down to the village very reliable & very frequent. (Worth a trip, variety of good restaurants & market stalls, shops & cafe and try the Sunset Bar) - Spa, wonderful (cheaper options down the hill) but luxury and worth the money. - trips desk - very helpful & got very good advice (Phi Phi Island book the early tour) - hotel management visible and often asked how our stay was. All staff friendly (laughing & joking together enjoying their work). As do the live music team, always a smile. - great hotel taxi service, safe & reliable. I could go on. Improvement points - plastic straws, please change to paper to help save our environment (as so many used). - suggestion, drinks service order around the top pool. Would we return to this hotel - definitely yes!!! Great holiday.
