We had an amazing time at the Village Resort. there were a few ups and downs but overall our experience was great! The Island runs off generators and water is stored in tanks on the island (no electricity or water connection from the mainland).
The first night we got there, unfortunately the water supply had a leak so we didn't get to freshen up (we had a Jacuzzi so jumped into that). On another day the power went out - this was not an issue for us as management had happy hour at the bar until power was restored - might have been a minor issue for those with children, but overall not a big deal in my eyes.
The staff at the resort were always attentive and assisted us in any way we asked. We booked tours from the resort and took the water taxi into Phuket if we wanted to explore more than the island.
overall we enjoyed our 8 days / nights there. We would alternate with a "full on" day (filled with a tour or sightseeing on Coconut Island or go into Phuket) and then a rest day, staying on Coconut Island.
We believe we had the best of both worlds having the calm of the resort to come back to after a fun filled day - although, there was still heaps to do on the resort to wear us out if we decided to do that too, such as hiring a bike and touring the Island.
We loved exploring Coconut Island as well as Phuket - we had a wonderful driver and tour guide who took us anywhere we wanted to go around Phuket (organised by the Village Resort staff). We did a Phi Phi Islands tour, Elephant trekking, visited Tiger Kingdom, the Big Buddha, lovely restaurants in Phuket, bicycled around Coconut Island - you name it and they will accommodate you!
Thank you Thailand - we loved our visit and will return again.
