My boyfriend and I stayed here in July of last year and had a lovely experience. The bungalows are very nice, the property is quiet and well kept, there was plenty of parking for the car we rented, and it was close to Orient Beach.
To people who are used to going to the tropics and staying in super air conditioned, hi-rise towers, with no natural scenery, this place is not for you. It is the tropics, there may be a mosquito in your room (that's what the net is for), a bug may come into your room if you leave food out. Welcome to the islands.
Orient beach is nice, clean, with some relaxing bars, but for true beauty and perfect swimming, head to St. Petersburg. Grab 2 chairs, and umbrella, and a bucket of beer for $20!
In general the food on the island wasn't great, but there was a lovely french restaurant on the other side of the island that was very good.
In general this hotel is a good value, and I would stay here again.
Oh! and there is a cat that comes around during breakfast (we named her breakfast kitty), please give her little pieces of ham, she is very skinny :)
