We traveled to Phuket for our honeymoon and spent our first 3 days on the island at Friendship Beach. Everyone was more than kind and helpful from the incredibly laid back owner to the maintenance staff and servers. We actually extended our stay a night and the owner was even able to give us a lower price because it was "low season" and the guest census at the hotel was low.
We stayed in the utterly romantic beach apartment that opened up right onto the beach. Everything was very clean and cozy and we were able to enjoy several relaxing days. The pool was beautiful and we had many late night and very early swims. We even rented a scooter from one of employees as recommended by the owner and had a great time!
Overall, being completely new to Thailand, this was an amazing place to stay to get our bearing and be able to have a romantic honeymoon spot to rest and get over the jet lag. We were able to scope out some places across the beach (but not on the beach) that were a bit cheaper and fit our budget more, but still would never trade those first 3 days we had there!
Regardless, this place was awesome and we have no complaints!
