Very nice bar on the beach. Good seating area to chill out when not too busy. Music can sometimes be too loud. It Is a little bit more expensive than some nearby bars on the main road. Fire shows at night are very good. Staff are friendly but can be difficult to get service when very busy.

Not the chef, medium as ordered, but the quality was terrible. Vendors also don't take no for an answer and even get over your table after saying...

I went as part of a couple and really enjoyed it but would love to come back with friends!! The beach is awesome and the pools were so cool but it was more expensive for food and...

First , the location is great. You have access to nightlife easily. Soi green mango is 3 minutes walk. The rooms were clean , but not great. Don't expect a smile from staffs.the pools were nice.
