I travelled with a few friends -- we had two "garden view" (standard/superior) bungalows.
We found this to be a great place, and only want to say this, in case you're expecting 5* resort (there's a posh facility next door):
Driving from the ferry pier seems to take you to the furthest end of the island -- which is true! Management lost our reservation details but shuffled things around for us, added the extra bed that we had emailed about. The transfer service from the pier dropped us off at the end of the road... and the resort was about 500m further down the beach (or more, down a winding and uneven backroad). Resort staff are unobtrusive, the restaurant seems to operate at a slow&sleepy pace. There was a garbage bin in front of the next bungalow, and I don't know how its occupants dealt with the foul smells! The beachfront is rocky and unsuitable for bathing, although great for anyone who wants to explore the seafloor at low-tide.
We walked about 400m west (to the right) for a bathing-beach, borrowing the chairs from another resort (buy a snack or a drink). There are quite a few dining options along the BangBao beach; for more choices, the village at Lonely Beach is only a 60-70B taxi ride away. We had stuff for the mosquitoes, which took care of the critters. Staff helped call a taxi for us, if the driver has a card and you have a mobile number, you can book your own rides into the village or over to busier beaches. There is a tour service, offering all the things that others on the island advertise; nothing special. You can pay in cash, or with a foreign-issued credit card.
