I stayed her in the December of 2010, christmas until new years eve. And we came back in Januari of 2011 in the same holiday. That is for a reason! And I will explain you why.
We arrived very exhausted from Cambodia, we were already traveling for like a month had a lot of expierce with differt hotels and hostels. We know what we could expect! this was different because of the relaxed athmosphere, friendly staff en great service was noticable at the very beginning. The owner came directly to us after checking in. Showing us around the place telling what we can and should do in the area. Great tips and advice what you follow when you are there. We also met a other owner of the place a realy friendly and outgoing guy who will do everything to make you stay as comfortable as possible, Didn't see this before in my whole trip trough Asia. Maybe it's because the owners are not locals, but more western orientated? you tell me? The staff is really open trying to connect with you and telling you about their culture, if you are open for that. We went with on of the staff members on is day on a road trip to the places you had to see when you're there. If you will ever read this thank you for this you are a great guy!
The bar was most of the time crowded with a lot of people. Nice place to meet other people if you are traveling alone. Not just the people from the resort came there but also other people from others resorts, just because of the relaxing en friendly athmosphere! They have a great cook over there his english is not up to the max but is willing to try. If you don't feel like eating thai food, no problem! Great pizza's by the way;)
The beach is next to the bar.. A really relaxing beach not that crowded so you can pick your own spot. same as the swiming pool. But why swim in the swimming pool if you got a great sea just in front of you? For people with little children its a great and safe place to let them swim.
If you want to explore the island, they have scooters for rent. If you want to do same kind of trips first ask te owners or one of the staff members what are normal prices and good organisators to go top.
The room we had was comfortable with a nice flat screen and to many channels. But on the other hand why do you need a screen if you got the the best nature and culture al around you. I've given the sleep quality not to the max because we had a room wich the airco made a crazy noise. When we told it to the administration they were so kind to give us a another room. But honest is honest. I also have putten the selection of Room Service empty because we've never used it. I'm not even sure if it is possible?
We left this place to travel to other countries. But after a while we were tired and felt like just chilling and relaxing for the end of the holiday. That's why we want back to this place and just chilled out. You know the commen sentence:"It's never as fun as the first time". I warned myself for this. I this case it wasn't true. We again had the time of over life but more in a relaxing setting, chilling at the beach drinking some beers, you know what I mean.
Conclusion: Price compared in what you get is more than great, great place to stay for short long stay. Great staff . And the owners know how to make it comfortable for the travellers. At the end that is the only thing you need when you on holiday
All the best!
