After travelling around Thailand for a month, Friendship Beach was my favorite stop. As a lot of other people mentioned, this is a great location, inexpensive, with a fantastic staff and some full-time guests. This is the kind of place where the more you put in, the more you will enjoy it. For instance, recommend that you meet Starr (who is usually around), the staff and some of the more long term residents. They will be happy to chat with you, make you feel at home and help you get the best vacation possible. In fact, after doing a 3 day scuba diving trip, I came back to relax/write/think and enjoy the staff and guests. Also, the little bay outside the property is great for kids as the water only gets about 2-3 feet at high tide and stays that way for hundreds of feet off the beach.
Bottom Line: Starr and his team create a laid back and guest friendly atmosphere where I felt more like a friend (no pun intended). Highly recommended
