We stayed in Baan Khwam Rak for 10 days, 3 adults and 2 young children. The villa was fantastic, very clean, new, great living space and outdoor space with pool. If you are looking for a great base for a family holiday with a nice quiet sandy beach a short stroll away, then this is the spot for you. If you want a busy party holiday, with nightlife etc. then I would suggest you look elsewhere.
The resort offers 4 shuttles per day into Lamai or Chaweng, so you can get to the shops/restaurants you want. Return taxi's vary between 300-600 baht depending on where you are coming from (and how hard you negotiate..).
Resort prices for drinks, food and the Spa are notably higher than normal Thai town prices, since we had a Full Board meal package which made this less significant, nonetheless this is why I've rated 4/5 rather than a full score (which on other aspects it would score).
