My husband and I and our two children (8 and 11) have just spent two nights here. It is a stunningly beautiful place and it was lovely to spend some time at a quieter location away from the mainland. We stayed in a family villa and were a little disappointed that there were no views from the villa but the views from the pool and restaurant certainly made up for it. We found the service at the restaurant a little frustrating particularly as we were often the only guests dining. This was highlighted on our last day when we just wanted to grab a hamburger for lunch prior to leaving and had to wait nearly an hour for it and then having to rush to make our connections. We had a fantastic day snorkelling, we were the only people on the long boat and 'Job' the activities co-ordinator was great, spending heaps of time snorkelling with my son showing him many underwater creatures he may of otherwise missed. We didn't feel rushed on the tour and on the way back we even stopped at the local Ramadan market and had a look around. All in all a great place to see a more traditional part of Thailand and we would certainly recommend a visit. Our only tip would be to organise your own transfers, it's easy to do it yourself and we saved about $100 each way.
