Our group of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was a pleasant surprise to find all three twin rooms we booked had ensuites. Something that wasn't shown in the photos on the hotels website. The service at theThai restaurant cannot be faulted and the food OMG sooo yummy. The bar staff and locals shoud take a bow for their friendly and warm welcome. We will be back!
