The pictures looked like paradise, and the reality didn't disappoint! I didn't want to leave this place after 6 nights, our room was beautiful, well kept and with a perfect view. The staff were incredibly friendly, and I'd go so far as to say infectiously happy behind the beach bar!
The food in the restaurant was really great, I guess you might think it was expensive if you were used to buying dinner in any Thai town, but very reasonable when coming from the uk, and worth every penny.
I had read reviews before we came about additional building and people saying it will spoil the resort. The new building wasn't complete when we were there, but I was pleased to see they were also extending the restaurant facilities too to cope with the extra capacity (including additional low tables overlooking the beach, which were lovely). As the beach is a in a cove, there's no option to extend that though, so I'm not sure how that will be affected by the additional guests.
We had a castaway beach villa, close to the quiet end of the beach, with sun loungers for our use only. I think it was the best spot in the resort, as we had the beach to ourselves most of the time. I did notice it was busier at the other end of the beach, near the pool and the bar. Even though I'm not sure if the growth of the resort will change it, it wont prevent me from returning, and I would request the same room - it was perfect and I didn't want to leave!
