I made my reservation on Booking.com and it was a birthday surprise for my partner. I even went early before arrival to ensure that everything was fine without hiccups but still they dropped the ball anyway. Overall experience was rather disappointing. So here goes a condensed story of a celebratory stay here. I arrived in advance to do checkin formalities...

We loved our stay at the Residence resort and spa Bangtao. We stayed in a 2bed villa for a few days whilst we waited for our villa to complete here. Very private, tropical garden with great sized pool to enjoy. 2 large bedrooms, both with ensuite big bathrooms. We could walk to the beach, restaurants, villa market, boat avenue, local...

We rented villa 14 for four nights, I can honestly say this is a wonderful place, but I must warn you about the neighboors in Villa 15. One morning, they were playing cheap heavy metal very loud and it really interupted the morning, we asked them to switch it down, which they did. Later that evening, we found the rearview...

We booked 6 nights here in a 1 bed villa with plunge/dipping pool. Since booking I had read a review on Trip Advisor that management had given a couple a free upgrade, so advised to ask.

I had no interested in being near the craziness of places like Patong. The under developed area of Bang Tao served us perfectly. It was within a short walking distance of the local supermarket as well as a few restaurants - but not many. Perfect for a getaway when you don't want a lot of hustle, bustle and noise.
