I was slightly put off by all the reviews I had read before. Unlike some guests before we felt welcome at the Sandy Bay Bungalows. We were greeted with a smile and felt looked after alright. I have to admit compared to what I experienced during my other 4 weeks in Thailand the people at Sandy Bay Bungalows are not the above average friendly people but they are far away from being impolite or rude.
We had a fan room which got quite warm at night, but not too hot to sleep ;) It was clean at arrival and the bathroom spacious.
One minus is that our room wasn't cleaned at all during our 5 day stay and we had to ask for new towels.
We rented a scooter from Sandy Bay Bungalows which was no trouble at all and a fair price.
The pool is definitely beautiful and the beach to die for.
The food at the restaurant was okay but I've had better Thai food in Thailand.
All in all the place was nice and I would stay there again. The price was fair and if you want a place to stay for yourself and not become family with the owners it is a good place.
