Think carefully
I have visited theCape Panwa 7 times over the last 23 years and very little has changed. However certain areas have now fallen way below what weI expected. Service in all areas is so poor that guests have given up eating in the hotel. Breakfast is not a patch on what it used to be and is the same everyday. There is no supervision of staff, clearly no training for new staff even to understand the basics of serving a guest. A few of the remaining long term staff have also given up ( their words not mine) as no one seems to care anymore. The decking around the pool area has been there for over 30+ years and is now so dangerous for all guests. Tiles are missing from the main pool and rust is showing in the pool. There are many other tripping hazards in and around the hotel which have been painted black so you can see them better, especially in the dark. ( Really). The hotel general manager was on site but not once did I see him talk to a member of staff or a guest. What a shame for such a beautiful place to have fallen.

The property itself is beautiful and scenic. We loved the private beach, and the view from breakfast never got old. But the food and service is severely lacking, as well as much of the accommodations becoming outdated and worn. The staff at the front desk are helpful and accomodating, but that's where it ends. Several times there were situations I could have used help, like carrying luggage, but the staff offered no assistance. Room service is also lacking. Due to issues created through language barriers, we were not able to effectively communicate with the staff, which led to several misunderstandings and, once, being hung up on. This also leads me to the food, which was extremely lacking in flavor and variety despite the high cost. For example, there were several breakfasts where there were simply no options to eat other than Western food, like bread pudding, bacon, or beans. Since we were at a resort in Thailand, I really expected many more Thai food options than we ever got. In addition to the poor quality of food, restaurants often had high wait times for food to be served or was forgotten about completely. As an example, we waited nearly 40 minutes on a salad at the Bamboo bar. When we went back later, it was over an hour and it was clear the server simply forgot about the order. Overall, I'm disappointed with our experience at a five-star resort. The grounds were stunning and we loved the Panwa house, but everything else was underwhelming. We will not be back.

Beautiful resort with everything you need.
We stayed 3 nights in a junior sea view suite. The view from our room was beautiful. Our room was spacious and clean. We enjoyed going to Too of the Reef for dinner and Otters Bar for drinks, listening to a talented singer/pianist name Ice perform.
