Stayed with Palita last week and they exceeded my expectations. When we arrived the grounds were much more beautiful than I expected and the staff was more than friendly. We were in the Ocean view room, which has a great spot right on the beach. There is a private balcony that you can watch the sunrise from every morning, or relax with a beer as the day comes to a close. The room has a fridge stocked with beers etc that are 60 baht ($2) the same price as the restraurant (about 10-20 baht or $.50 more than the 7-11, which is a great deal for a wet bar.
The room itself is cotemporary with nice floors. the bed is firm but comfy and they change the sheets, pillow cases and towels daily so you always have fresh linens! They also provide daily use of a beach towels for all guests...they take them back at the end of the night and wash them which is a great perk considering how stinky a pesonal beach towel can get on a trip!
The staff was great, always friendly and service for anything was always at a comfortable pace (not crazy fast, and not slow). We booked our trip to the Ang Thong Marine park through Palita as well as our boat to Ko Samui and were able to add it to our room bill (just like we were food and drinks). The food is good and we decided to eat at Palita about 5-6 times during our 4 day stay. On the last day, I was sick and they asked what the could do for me...make toast, anything to help. They gave me sprite with salt (suggested by local dr to settle stomaches) for free as I left for the boat, it was really nice how concerned they were.
One word of caution for light sleepers staying on the beach in Hadd Rin: Although Palita is on the opposite end of the beach from where the main party area is for the full moon party, the music from the bars referberates down the entire beach (and the bars party until 4am everynight) Although My wife and I had absolutely no problems sleeping...someone who is a light sleeper or needs absoulte quite may find this difficult. I would recommend a room more in the middle to back of the resort as the noise from the bars reduces substantially away from the beach. As for us, we would stay in the ocean view room again!
