The hotel has an absolute toplocation. We rented bungalows on the beach and it was just wonderful. However that's all that is really positive about the hotel. The staff was only friendly when you would spend more money, they didn't (or did not want to) speak one word of english, hence a lot of wrong orders brought to our table... More

The room itself was good but really hot even with all the fans on. We were in the huts the only negative is that the shower and bathroom is together their is no separation so when you shower your toilet will be all wet so that is kinda nasty. Also you can not flush the tolit paper in tolit so... More

Unfortunately we did not have a good experience with this resort.Shortly after we arrived, 3 people were injured with jellyfish. We were said that this jellyfish occured there just the day we arrived. If its really true, we dont know. Unfortunately, one small boy-playing in the water- was injured as well- but very badly and needed immidiate first aid and... More

We stayed here in a large group of 10 friends. We got a bottle beach transfer taxi straight off the ferry and made our way to the resort! The ride was extremely bumpy and it almost felt like we were on an off road experience! (Perhaps arrive by boat, it's a lot smoother!) we stayed in one beach front hut... More

We stayed here with a family of 5 for 4 days. We were picked up by taxi from bottle beach resort at the pier from the Donsak Ferry. A bumpy ride, but the alternative boattaxi was not available after sunset. We stayed at one of the seasite bungalows. Do not expect luxury, but there is AC and warm water. Unfortunately... More

The bungalow we booked was right on the beach & whilst it was basic it was comfortable enough, with a large bed & huge bathroom/wet room (cold water only in the basic rooms, it was so hot we needed cold showers!).We were actually pleasantly surprised, as we paid very little for our 2 night, 3 day stay. Beautiful beach for... More

On first impressions, this resort is a dream. Accessed only by off-road or boat to the beach, stilted huts overlooking the sea, clear blue waters and pure white beach - it really blows your socks off! After about an hour or so, however, this postcard resort starts to fall apart. I booked the most basic hut for my stay as... More

We arrived by taxi boat which was a hidden extra cost but we booked the room cheaper non direct so why would there be a free pickup! Staff were friendly and the main young lady with the baby couldnt have been more helpful. The waiter did get orders wrong and spoke little english but maybe if most of us bothered... More

Stayed here in June 2013 after partying at Half Moon Party near Thongsala at other end of island. Needed a nice beach, somewhere quiet to recover and just mellow out. This place was awesome, had to take a songtow [truck taxi thing] across the island, then a small motor boat to this part of island as its REALLY hard to... More

You need to spend a bit more money in order to really make the most of this resort, it was apparent that the larger groups of people received far far much more attention then the couples! Our first room, the very basic room with just a fan, was brutal to say the least, the metal roof covered in leaves, let... More
