I stayed here for 6 nights back in November 2011 with 3 friends - sharing 2 bungalows. Papillion it is a small, friendly and cosy resort. Small pool which is good for sunbathing in with a few sunbeds around it to relax the day away. The bungalows are spacious with big bathroom, tv, fridge and dvd player.
It's in a quiet location although only a few metres from the main road and a couple of minutes walk to the beach. (great beach with some chilled bars).
The swedish couple who had taken over recently were really helpful and gave loads of handy tips for the island. They also sorted moped hire for us, which was the best day I had in Thailand such an awesome ride around Koh Lanta!
Food was excellent - choice of western and thai, very high quality although I little more expensive than most places.
Some other friends stayed just up the road in a 4* hotel paying 3x as much, it was nice but not 3 x nicer!! All in all Papillion is great value for money, relaxed and friendly :)
