We stayed at Bamboo Bay 30th December until 8th Jan, and really didn't want to leave. We stayed in an aircon bungalow, with a lovely patio, ok the accommodation is basic, but it was clean. If you are looking for luxury western style accommodation this isn't your place, if you're bothered by the odd gecko in your bathroom it isn't either. If you're bothered by these things though what are you doing in Thailand! Also the acommodation is in the cliffs so there are a lot of steps.
But if you're looking for a stunning setting, great staff, great food, then it certainly is. I've never stayed anywhere where the staff are as friendly and helpful.
The road is mostly paved now so isn't has hellish as it used to be apparenlty. There are 2 other resorts on the Beach but one of them is £100 a night. I don't know what the accommodation at Ban Phu Lae next door is like but its a terrific place to go for a drink. Likewise the bay "next door" is great to walk to for sunset beers.
I wouldn't say this is a honeymoon getaway but it is a great place to stay- we are already planning on going back next Christmas.
