My husband and I (late 20s) stayed at Ao Nang Haven for 3 nights this in November.
The good: The guesthouse itself is small and cozy, just what we were looking for. We also found the room and the reception quite clean and tidy.
The not so good: upon arrival, we were asked to turn off the lights and AC when not in the room. Very reasonable request, and not the first time we heard that either. The problem? We were also told that the room will be cleaned only on the third day, and that no one goes into our room. The very first day however, shortly after arrival, we left the guesthouse to use a sunny break after a couple of rainy days... We left in a rush and I forgot to turn off the AC. When we got back to the guesthouse after two hours or so, we were very surprised to hear that "you had left your AC on. So we went and turned it off"!!! That was surprising to both of us and honestly left us with a bad taste for the whole stay. Then, the following day we had planned an excursion and just before leaving the power went out. No problem... I will get to the problem in a second. We headed out for a Phang Nga bay tour and rain started pouring like mad!!! Storm and high waves and all while we are in an overloaded long tail boat! Long story short, we did one of the five activities advertised that being eating... Instead, we left 8 am and came back 5 pm cold, tired and drenched in both heavy rain and salt water, really looking forewarn to a warm shower when we turned on the tap and there was nothing but cold water flowing. My husband went downstairs to find out that after electricity came back they forgot to turn the pump on!!! And that we wouldn't have hot water for at least 30 minutes...
You see, the people working at the guesthouse, specially the gentleman, were very nice and polite but sometimes the little things can change your experience all together. This is just my humble opinion...
