I stayed at Friendship beach while at Atmanjai for my second trip to do a Detox in Thailand. This time I thought I would stay on a beach and be able to swim... NOT. You cant enjoy a swim from that beach and I thought the rooms were very expensive, especially when there are so many beautiful places around.
Too many people were smoking by the pool, the rooms were not clean when I was there, but that might have changed.
The only great thing would be the sunrise.
I would never had stayed here if it wasn't for the Detox and it was hard to be there as there were parties and of course the smell of food (can't avoid that really), which made it really hard to manage.
The wifi was for free, but it was next to impossible to connect to.
It was not a good experience and I am surprised that so many people rate it high given the complaints I heard from so many people while I was there.
