This hotel is located on a very nice strech of isolated beach with snorkeling right off shore. It is at least 20 minutes drive from any town, so bring everything you need. We visited in Dec., sea was very wavy, while on the other side of the island it was very calm and flat. I would look for hotels on the other side next time. The hotel is located uphill from the beach, the bungalows are even further from the beach in the jungle, which is too bad. The hotel rooms are new and nice. I have to say that there are many bungalows right on the beach at the place next door but I haven't seen them personally.
In my opinion this hotel is not so great for young kids. We traveled with a 1.5 year old and there are too many stairs and porches that were not safe and even dangerous. We did not have this experience in other hotels in Thailand.
