This is an amazing hotel. The pool is fantastic with crystal clear water and soothing inclined chair fabulous for a sun tan. The room cleanliness is top notch and it's beautifully furniture. However, the location is somewhat lacking. It's no where near any beaches or mall. Neither is it close to any tourist attractions. That aside it is superb!

We wanted a few days to recharge at the beach and this hotel was perfect. We booked
a pool villa which was definitely worth the extra money. Even though it was still off season and the weather was so-so, we had enough good hours at the beach and our pool and enjoyed the great restaurants and the very attentive service. The breakfast was amazing.
The hotel is a bit isolated - which is exactly what we wanted. For a night out, we went to Patong which was a 45 min taxi ride. We definitely didn't want to leave and will certainly return again!

The problem I had/have is how the place is advertised on both Expedia and its own official site. Take extra special care when booking your room. Unlike every other holiday I've booked where rooms are styled in very much the same way, each room can be totally different.
Before I go in to a sob story I have my hands up, this was my mistake which is why I paid the two night penalty having stayed at the resort for just under an hour.
At first, and second, glance I made the fatal error of assuming a two bedroom, two story residence was the wonderful picture they have plastered everywhere. The classic Thai style duplex pool villa. As it turned out when we got there, they put us in an apartment block resembling that of a typical City break rather than a paradise island. There is not one external photo of this building on either site.
The General Manager understood our concerns and kindly offered to move us to what we did see in the picture but due to the Chinese New Year it was very busy and it was their last room which smelt of heavy smoke. Indeed, this is not the hotel's fault and both rooms were very well equipped.
My only gripe was that if we took that room, the people who had originally booked it would have been put in our previously allocated room. Just made me wonder if that was what happened to us. Its that kind of shady dealing that drove me away from the Financial Sector. Completely legal but borderline immoral, and designed for profit from honest hard working fol

First impressions were not so great, but improved and the place grows on you. Check-in touches reminded me of holiday camps like Butlins (UK), rather than a 5* hotel, and it seems the hotel is now pandering to large groups and this sadly detracts from what should be a more classy hotel. However, spend a few days and it impresses. It's still resort style, but with nice touches such as the Xana beach club, and the Bodega & Grill. The gardens are fabulous at night, and while breakfast can feel a little like rush hour on the London Underground, the Spa, 250m long pool, and the touches reminscent of the Banyan Tree, make it a worthy place to stay.

There were 3 of us traveling together, so we opted for a 2 bedroom suite. It was enormous! It had a full kitchen and 2 1/2 bathrooms. Everything was very clean and worked well. The staff was super nice and helpful. They helped us book multiple excursions. This hotel is right on the beach, however, it's not very safe to swim right there next to the hotel due to a strong undertow. But if you walk just five minutes in either direction, there are lifeguards and many people swimming and the current is much easier. We opted to spend most of our time at Movenpick's immaculately clean pool, though. Every afternoon the staff would bring samples of fruity drinks to us. It was great! The food in the restaurant was great too, although pricey.
