We were at Smiley the same time as the previous reviewer,and yes there was a group, and yes there was a party, and yes it was loud. We were faily close and still slept (knackered due to getting there) - and so missed the boob flashing. Not surprised though as they were loud!
Our room was in one of the newer brick bungalows. Yes lights were dim, but everything was clean enough. But yeah, far from spotless but this is Asia and £10 a night in a hot/humid place. We were satisfied. We got loo roll :)
Food okay too.
We took Smiley lake raft trip which was superb value for money - 2200 bhat (if 8+ go) - and had th night in their new (basic but okay) raft house. Boat trip, cave visit and trek were fine, cliff jump and kayaking also good. Food on raft was excellent. OK - trip wasn't exactly to how it wsa advertised, but we didnt read it anyway lol! Excellent value for money.
Staff great free wifi. and very helpful - we would recommend - but beware it is a budget place.
FWIW - some people came to Smileys and looked everywhere else, but came back as nothing touched it for the price.
