Very green and relaxing stay with great pool.
Pool - clean water, big enough for 40 minute exercise swims. Good shade for early or late swims where no suntan cream is needed. Our 2 kids (aged 8 and 5) loved it so we used pool before breakfast and after we came back from a day out.
Rudi (the owner) was very hospitable and breakfast was good.
We had no transport and we arrived from Bangkok by (very cheap) train.
I should have had Thai Bamboo written down and map printed. I got burnt by taxi driver who said 60 and then charged 600. After that I always wrote down the amount and got it agreed before we got in. Trips to Cha Am after that were by bike or free shuttle at 1100 and we got a 200-300 baht taxi back. We enjoyed the fishing harbour a lot and went 3 times for photos etc.
We liked Thai Bamboo a lot and extended our stay to 11 nights.
If you have no transport then bring food for first night.
