The owners of this place are truly very sweet people and gracious hosts, so it pains me to have to leave an honest review. But I found that the bungalows at Nice n' Easy simply were not what was suggested by their prices and the reviews of other travelers. My wife (with whom I was travelling) has left a similar review of the place, though I am going to have to be a bit less generous with my review.
Our bungalow was approximately 10' x 8'--large enough for a double bed and a couple of feet on either side of the bed. No place at all to put even one backpack per person.
The bed--at least in our bungalow--was extraordinarily hard. We experienced a lot of hard beds in Thailand, and we certainly weren't expecting to have memory foam, but the bed here was really the final straw that made it unbearable to stay a second night.
Additionally, there was a moderate ant infestation in our room. They were coming in through a crack in the floor, and we kept finding them everywhere--in our bedding, in our luggage, etc.
Lastly, the bathroom, which attached to the bungalow itself, was essentially outdoors, and had no screens. To use the bathroom, you had to brave a could of mosquitoes and other insects, and when you open the bathroom door, some of them inevitably fly into the bungalow itself.
We saw a number of other bungalows on Khlong Kong beach that were somewhat cheaper yet significantly better accommodations. I think if the Nice n' Easy bungalows were a bit cheaper, it would be more indicative of the experience one can expect. We perhaps read too deeply into the price and the reviews we saw here, so my hope is that with this review, folks can better assess what it is they're looking for in a bungalow.
(I will say that we had one dinner here and the food was very good. That said, the food is very good in a lot of places in Koh Lanta.)
