We had brunch at this place and I thought this place would be good because it was right on the beach. We got a two bed room bungalow, but the bed was too small, it is really a single bed. So, sleeping 2 people in a single bed in such a hot temperature just with fans. But, we were lucky to have this room as there was not many available at the time of year.
We stayed there for 5 nights. This beach is very nice for swimming and there is another small island that you can walk through water and it is a fun experience. People do fish, snorkel over there. My family did all while I was enjoying getting massage. "family massage" here on the premise was good. I tried the other one on the other side of the beach, but I prefer this one. They are not family related with the accommodation people. But, the sisters an mother team do a good job. I particularly enjoyed the mother's massage as she has more experience and strength.
The food and coffee at the royal resort was good. Especially, I start to appreciate this simple coffee (the best price - 25 baht, I think). I kind of gave up on cappuccino as I couldn't get the right one. So, one day I ordered normal coffee and the tasty was good!
The staff - manager was the Thai woman - was not very friendly, but okay. The man (his name must be Oi?) was initially very friendly, but we didn't feel generally that they were very friendly.
But, the woman was very efficient and fast for sending our son's passport to Koh Tao. We forgot to pick up his passport from them because it was unusual situation and they and we both forgot about it.
Of course, we had to pay a bit of money for getting the passport, but it was very worthwhile we appreciated it very much that she promptly sent it to us.
