We stayed 5 nights at Baan Panburi as part of our honeymoon August 2008. We had booked the "Ocean Hut" which should have an ocean view, and we were not disappointed. The Ocean Hut is the leftmost of the hotel's bungalows, which means the terrace is very private (just trees beside it). The bungalow and terrace is just a few steps from the beach, it's as close as you can get. The room was nice, with A/C, refrigerator and view to the beach, and bathroom was OK. Our terrace was quite big, with a table and two chairs.
The beach Thong Nai Pan Noi was perfect except for the many straydogs that also lived there. Baan Panburi's restaurant is directly on the beach, and seemed to be by far the most popular restaurant on the beach during our stay. The restaurant was - beside the location - the best thing about Baan Panburi, the food was wonderful. The only downside was a somewhat slow service, and sometimes they forgot one's order. But in this kind of place, you're never in a hurry, and it wasn't really a problem. The hotel staff were always nice, and responded to our requests at once.
All in all, we can think of no better place to spend a relaxing beach holiday than in Baan Panburi. We thought the location of the Ocean Hut right by the beach was absolutely worth the extra money compared to the cheaper bungalows without seaview.
Note: there has been some talk of construction work at the beach, which was still going on when we visited. However, it was on the opposite side of the hotel from our bungalow, and it didn't bother us.
