Firstly, I stayed here in December so the weather was probably the best that you can get around Thailand. Very little humidity, nice breeze and lots of sun.
The resort itself is situated on a small and secluded strip of beach with about 7-8 other hotels and resorts along the same strip. The beach was amazing, so tranquil and picturesque. Most of the other hotels along there are quite fancy and pricey so it's great to have access at a more modest and humble price.
I stayed here with a friend after attending a wedding in Bangkok so we were there to unwind, party and celebrate the new year. In fact, It provided the best post-wedding type of reflective stay you could imagine!
We opted for a regular bungalow. It was very modest with shared area for both beds a TV, wardrobe and cupboard space, AC and a locked safe (very convenient). The bathroom was not so great, there was more or less a shower just in the corner of the bathroom, which meant we got the place involuntarily messy and wet. There were a lot of mosquitos in the resort so having netted windows really helped. The breakfast was acceptable. The swimming pool in the resort is very simple, small and a little weathered... but I didn't use it much considering the amazing beach just 20 metres away! For food, I would recommend walking about 200 metres up the beach strip (North) to the very end, for a very nice meal and view by the sea. If you heading to all the parties especially in Haad Rin, you may want to note that this resort is probably the furthest away from all the other beaches (but I don't think there's much difference price wise, just travel time). If you're there mainly to enjoy a tranquil and secluded stay then being that far away is probably perfect.
In all honesty I would happily go back there just to lie on the beach instead of doing all the overrated island parties. I can still hear the crashing waves as you lay on the soft beach under the plentiful natural shade... the best nap I've had in years!!
