Great comfort but sterile atmosphere
No question, the rooms are big and comfortable. The atmosphere is very sterile, more like a communist grand hotel than a tropical resort. Friendly waiters but terrible food (Thai food has little in common with real Thai food, Western food little with real Western food; and don't expect any fresh ingredients or fresh fish there!), large selection at the breakfast buffet but all bad quality (even the "fresh" fruit tastes of refrigerator). Beautiful, clean beach (about 15 km long with just a handful of resorts). The Sunset Beach Resort is new and well maintained (they routinely claim that the jacuzzi in the pool and the water for the slide are all broken, but depending on the staff in charge, one can also succeed in persuading them to turn it on). Next door is a brand-new hotel (Sea Sun) where the same owner puts his Chinese guests. It's so noisy that you hear them even with your room's windows closed... Also, avoid the rooms B9 and B8 near the pool where the pumps are running 24 hours.
