“overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2007

We booked to stay here with a travel agent in Bangkok who showed us the lovely brochure...all i can say is they have a very talented photographer!
We payed way too much for what you got.The dirt track down to the rooms was not well lit at night and really wasn't very attractive. We stayed in a bungalow which was very clean and spacious with TV and a fridge and good air con but the bathroom was very ,very basic...not what you expect when you pay those prices.
One night a load of the rooms were robbed..mobile phones, cameras etc which kind of puts you off a place.They had no safes in the room but you could put your valuables in the safe at reception.It seems to happen quite often.
It is a little way out but the walk into town is ok.
We wouldn't recommend staying here unless it was a budget option which it certainly isn't.
Overall very disappointing.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2007

We originally booked for 7 days and stayed for a month. Several other couples we met had also extended their stays. The staff are amazing especially the General Manager Pumpkin. The previous review seems unfair. Sure some of the junior staff have limited English but how is your Thai? Some of the staff speak Thai, English and French. Lamai is 15mins walk or 100 baht by taxi. The menu is good offering both Thai and Western food. The big chalet we stayed in had ac/tv/fridge/ensuite and was cleaned daily. The Tuesday night BBQ and band is great fun. The resort has a new pool and bar which opens onto a nice safe beach. When we stayed there was a good mix of couples, small groups and families. On the day we left Pumpkin had arranged and paid for our early taxi to the airport. We have been travelling for 6 months and stayed in 31 places. This is the most friendly welcoming place and I certainly recommend it.
