This is exactly what we were looking for to kick off our vacation. We wanted to unwind by doing nothing but sitting on the beach for a few days and relaxing. The Longtail is perfect for that. It is quiet, has a beautiful beach, and the food is amazing. This is definitely budget accomodation so I wasn't sure what to expect... But I was pleasantly surprised. The bungalows were simple but clean and there were no bugs (we stayed at bungalow #1 right on the beach).
If you don't like dogs don't come here. They are freindly and just like to hang out near you. And occasionally bark at night. But they won't jump on you or anything and they seem clean.
We went at the start of December '11 when the floods in bangkok were just ending. So it was *really* quiet on the whole island. I would have preferred a little more action but there was nobody around. At all!!! I would reccomend a rental truck if you want to go explore transportation is not so easy from here and the road is not great for scooters. Not too much to do in the area in December because no tours were started yet.
