The other reviews here inspired me to try to stay at Red Garden Resort, but it was full. I then discovered that there are literally hundreds of little places, similar at least in size, catalogued on a couple Chinese websites (without reviews....).
After following links, looking at lots of room photos and checking out locations, I took a chance on La Villa and had great luck. It's located in a little village by Pai Sha beach, a (relatively) quiet beach on the west side of Kenting National Park.
There are four rooms/suites, varying widely in size and style to accomodate different size groups. La Villa has its own swimming pools, a patio area where breakfast is served and a lawn with ducks and, apparently, summer BBQ. There's also a parking area amidst the trees across the alley. The place just opened six months ago and everything is clean and fresh.
The 'honeymoon suite' we ended up in was excellent if quirky. The bedroom, in back, was decorated in a kinda classical Chinese style supplemented by a flatscreen TV but basically devoid of a window. The front room, in a Balinese theme, was both a bathroom, complete with a large jacuzzi bath and a stand up shower, and a sitting room; the elements that might jar are the concrete floor and the toilet, which can only be curtained off.
The service from Mrs. Chuang, her husband and the rest of the crew at La Villa is a highlight. She was waiting out in the road to catch us as we drove by uncertainly at 1am (I'd warned of our late arrival at time of booking) and helped make our stay a joy.
