We stayed for 7 nights at Salad Hut bungalows. Having read all the comments about the noisy children and arriving to find out they were true, we were a bit freaked out to begin with (and we even travel with kids ourselves!). We had a bungalow facing the pool (oh the noise!) and we asked to be moved. Since the place was fully booked, we were offered to move around in three different bungalows throughout our stay. It may seems like a hazzle but it wasn't really. We stayed for two nights at room M2 (large room with "mountain view - balcony facing away from the beach), two nights at one of the large bungalows directly on the beach (nice but some noise at night) and three nights at a corner bungalow (number 7) with garden and a bit of sea view. All rooms were nice, comfortable and clean. The staff really went out of their way to make us happy and comfortable and we really appreciated their efforts!
So we ended up having the best time here! The place is family run and since both the service and the food were really good, we ended up having most of our meals here. Really excellent food and very reasonably priced. The restaurant is busy every night and there are loads of kids running around. Well, there is. Breakfast is nice with 5 different choices (american, continental, homemade yoghurt and fruitsalad, homemade pancake with banana or coconut or oatmeal porridge). All served with fresh fruit shakes and coffee/tea. Everything is homemade and really tasty.
The beach is just lovely! We stayed during low tide month (July) so water was shallow and clear with many fish swimming around. In the afternoon the water rose a bit which made it easier to swim. Okay, maybe not swim as much as just relax in the water ;-)
The resort is far away from the drunk backpackers and full moon parties so if that is what your come to Koh Phangan for, stay somewhere else. If you come to relax at a cosy place with a nice beach (and you can live with a few noisy kids), this place is the best you can find!
