We were quite happy with our hotel room. Linen was clean and room was serviced every day. Good pool, it could do with steps into the pool.
We didn't realise that the airport transfer provided was not complimentary (as all other hotels we have used with this ticked have been free). Most of the staff friendly and helpful. The male chef could have been friendlier. Cleaning staff very pleasant. Travel clerk also very helpful. Hotel is in good area and short walk to beach.

Those that wanted to make a sale were quite pushy ...

Not even the usual dosage of junk food could cure the hangover from hell. As the bell rang for the afternoon Singha session I felt the only way to beat the hangover was to climb straight back on the bike and start again. A ...
... and mask and came out with Carl. The beautiful fish from first getting into the water encouraged him further and he just kept going and did really well. Even tried without the jacket but because there were no flippers to fit him he got tired quickly and kept getting water in his snorkel. This could also be because he couldn't shut up from telling you about every fish he saw. Sian is just off on her own if she can and loves every minute.

... arcades and traditional Thai shops, yet we found the main attraction seemed to be local markets served up decaying fish. We quickly took refuge an hour away in Pattong, in the huge shopping centre, feasting on ethical cuisine (i.e. McDonalds).
Nightlife was also concentrated in Pattong, in particular, the infamous Bangla Road. It's a road that wouldn't look out of place in Magaluf, with the countless bars and clubs lining the roadsides illuminated by flashing neon ...
