We spent our first three nights at this resort at the start of our month long visit to the Islands. The resort is located about a 10 minute walk from the main beach, which is pretty ordinary and the jumping off point for many long tail boat trips to Railay beach and vendors trying to sell you something. The check in was smooth and the reception staff friendly. The rooms have a strong musty smell, which I think is due to the amount of vegetation and ponds that run through the resort, the rooms though are clean and spacious, with excellent comfortable beds. We spent a few hours around the pool, which was quiet at the time and pleasant enough to cool down and read a book. Breakfast was included but after one breakfast we decided to skip it, very limited and not worth the effort. We never had dinner here, and to be honest am not sure anyone else did, as the restaurant was always empty. One problem we did have was with the room safety deposit box, three time we couldn’t open it and three times the maintenance man messed with it and used masking tape to do something with the mechanism and three times it broke again, in the end they replaced the box, but never bolted it to the wall and it fell of the shelf onto the floor. The town itself is full of travel agents and tailors, but you can find some good Thai street food vendors, two minutes from the resort. Overhaul not a bad place to plan our onward travel and relax in the resort for a few days, before catching our ferry to Koh Jum.
