The resort was very helpful in all regards. They arranged for boat transport to and from the island and picked us up at the pier. Check in with a welcome drink. Any requests were taken with a smile. The grounds were kept very clean as were the beach. Resort has good breakfast and their restaurant had very good food. Problem is that the restaurant is situated a bit off the beach and on the daytime it tends to get very hot there. But 5 mins walk along the beach will get you to the next resort, Ao Kao White Sand Beach Resort. Food there is very good and their restaurant got very good food and a cool breeze through their restaurant all day.
As for the sandflies we all got to know them a little bit closer during our stay. One of us (four persons) had troubles making it very uncomfortable and last day were spent up at the bungalow instead of by the beach. Coconut oil didn't seem to keep'em away, at least not working well enough. Beach seemed to be sprayed every day as well.
On the beach there are good spots for snorkeling, but can be hard sometimes to get to them as the water is quite shallow and the tide difference is quite notable.
All in all I from what we saw this resort for sure is one of your best options, and your days will be lazy.
