We spent one night here after wanting to stay on Klong Dao beach. The young girl, called On, whose family owned the bungalows approached us on the ferry when we got on at Koh Phi Phi. She was very nice and polite and helped us with anything we needed. The hotel was fantastic with an infinity pool and a great bar and a restaurant with lovely food. We stayed in one of the top rooms which was practically on the beach. It was fully air conditioned and had a bath, which was surprising. We wanted to spend the next night on the south of the island so I asked On if we could get a taxi to the south whichw as 20km away. She said it wasn't a problem and that her father would take us. When i asked how much it was she told me it would be the equivalent of £20 which iw as very shocked by. She explained that the road only only goes half way and then there is a dirt track which is very difficult to navigate. So I took her word for it and paid the money and off we went. We were in an open back truck and when we got to the dirt road we were covered in dust from head to toe...our clothes were ruined! When we wanted to go back to the ferry terminal in the north the next day I was ready to fork out another £20 but the owners of Bamboo Bay bungalows where we stayed that night said it was included in our ferry ticket we had purchased which was no different to the ferry ticket we had purchased to get from Koh Phi Phi to ko lanta. I realised then that sadly that nice young girl had ripped us off.
Also, the top rooms are very nice for around £30 a night but the restaurant is above it and at about 6am they start moving the tables and chairs around so it gets a little noisy.
