Stayed too long at VJ, I'm afraid. VJ Hotel was once a Health&Spa with jacuzzi, sauna and massage in the building next to the dormitory-like hotelbuilding. Today this part (and other) seems to crack. There is a very unpleasant odourl around this area coming from the river and excrements. Unfortunately you have to pass through this to reach the mainroad.
The best part is its location 20m from the beach.

Good location if you don't want to be stranded in the middle of the party zone.
The hotel is located at the end of the beach, very nice!
A small, but ok pool.

We stayed here for one night and left. The staff at this hotel did not want to know us. The rooms were not clean, extremely rundown and smelt awful.
You can find better hotels on the island.

VJ Hotel is well located and good value although the rooms are rather basic and in need of refurb. A nice spot on the beach for much less money than the neighboring Amari. Breakfast is not good however.

We stayed for one night in this hotel. It was terrible. The best thing was leaving the hotel.

+ price is cheap if you get a good deal (if the price is only thing which matters to you)
+ ok pool

--- very dirty rooms
--- no bungalows, only hotel rooms
--- beds very old and not comfortable
--- mold (mildew) every where in the rooms and pool and so on... disgusting
--- poor breakfast (food was in the warm for hours...very hygienic)
--- location really poor (there is nothing to do on the Klong prao beach, and you have to take taxi to go to other beaches)
--- no free WIFI. Internet at the check in lobby, strange coupon system using that.
--- lot of mosquitoes at the night time (the location near the odd river...)

The rooms are large, the beds very comfortable and the air conditioning efficient and not too noisy. Large bathrooms with ample hot water but very poorly lit. Other reviewers have likened the place to a dormitory which is fair. Noise in the corridor early morning didn't bother us as we're early risers and the place was less than half full anyhow; it would be an issue however for people who sleep in.

First impressions weren't good. We had to take our bloody shoes off before we could enter a hut to check in: the pool area is drab with dilapidated furniture and the tide was out meaning a 50 metre wade to get to waste high tepid water liberally strewn with small stones etc. The pool is a good size and well maintained but like many others in Thailand it is a standard depth of about 1.3 metres in full sun so that by mid March it was always tepid.

Breakfast was passable if you prefer fried eggs as most days there's no choice. Other meals were overpriced and uninspiring. Beer prices not too bad but other drinks were exhorbitant.

But the biggest disappointment was Khlong Prao. It's a dump. Three or four third rate eating places with apalling service and a couple of minimarts about a 500 metre walk from the resort. If you don't have your own wheels go elsewhere. In fact go elsewhere anyhow.
