The location was quite good, as already explained below it's a short walk to all the main action.
The pool was good with chairs to lay on etc. It's setup for diving and has three depths, one of which is very deep. It can be tough finding room in the shallow end when there are classes on.
Unfortunately the island was suffering regular brown outs and whenever it hit your wifi would drop out (ie your skype call) and the cable tv would stop working for at least 30 min while it rebooted or whatever. I guess this isn't really their fault and when it was working the wifi coverage was great.
The staff were OK but mostly indifferent, I don't think they were too well trained in hospitality.
Breakfast was fine and reasonably good value at 100 baht per person, although we have a feeling others were getting it for free somehow. We were paying 1500 baht for their AC rooms which wasn't great value but we had arrived without a reservation.
My main complaint about this place would be the level of noise. It was not a place where you could easily sleep in, with the slamming of doors etc and many groups getting up early for dive classes etc. The rooms just were not setup very well to keep out the noise. There was also a very noisy group at about 4am, and due to the lack of 24 hour reception there was nothing that could be done to get them to be quiet.
10am checkout is fine and is actually quite appreciated in the context of ferry times, with many people arriving around then an appreciating a room to go straight to and also many people leaving around then soon.
I would stay here again, purely because it seems that a lot of the reviews on trip advisor for other hotels on the island were quite average and we haven't located anywhere better.
