Having spent months looking forward to our week here we were not disappointed!
Just about everything said in other reviews we agree with.
We booked a beach front bungalow and although quite pricey for this place it was in our opinion money well spent as the views to wake up to of the beach, sea and koh pan ngan were amazing.
Some people have commented on the rooms not being huge- what do they need??? We had a kingsize bed, closet, drawers, fridge, tv and dvd player and a very spacious bathroom.
The restaurant is lovely for breakfast and lunch but, as others have commented, a 5 minute walk finds a handful of equally good food options at around half the price.
The staff work so hard to keep the beach, grounds and rooms looking great and Amandine and her restaurant staff are very friendly and helpful.
That just leaves David! We had read many reviews about his attitude, especially if you are not French but hey ho, you dont go on holiday to make best friends with your hotelier! However as the week went on we did start to notice.
This was after a very blunt introduction when we arrived.
One day we were having lunch and he made a point of stopping at every table of french people to chat but completely ignored us.
Not really a bother to us but as we left today and paid our 16,000 baht bill he could not even say thank you or ask if we had enjoyed our stay.
having read many of David's responses on here we are sure he will explain that none of this is his fault but some hospitality skills are needed if you are going to run a hotel
In summary we would gladly stay here agsin and recomend it. Just try to deal with Amandine as much as you can!
