This resort is on a nice little beach that's not as well traveled as Lamai or Chaweng. It is still quite crowded during the day, but it's quieter than the bigger beaches. The water is clear and very shallow--you can't really swim so much as wade--and the floor is more rocky than sandy. They clean up the beach every morning, but there is still quite a lot of trash that accumulates throughout the day on the beach and in the water. There were also stray dogs wandering around at times, not bothering anybody but defecating on the beach.
The rooms are pretty nice, nothing spectacular. Get a room with an ocean view, it's the best part of staying here. The restaurant is not bad. Breakfast is free in the morning and pretty good, the lunch and dinner menu is a little overpriced of course, but not ridiculous, and the food is pretty decent. The best part is, again, the incredible ocean views from the outdoor dining area.
Most of the island's hot spots are not within walking distance
