Our stay here was at the very end of our Thailand trip so we already experienced several other accommodations throughout the country and arrived with proper expectations. We booked Deluxe Beachfront Bungalow and were surprised it was not a bungalow at all but one larger house having four beachfront facing rooms with semi-private verrandas. Booking site also declared this is for 2 people but we found a second smaller bed next to double. Bravo for giving us a bit of dorm feeling. Finally, light switches and paintings are all covered by plastic foil... this is your top/most expensive offer, really disappointing.
Front staff was the most reserved we saw on our trip. Not rude or impolite, just extremely cool and detached. I find it incredible that they could not find me a bottle opener at 11PM. "We do not have it"... right, I'd rather you told me you are too lazy to walk across to the restaurant. When leaving, they offered to arrange us a taxi transfer. No other option or willingness to help, no ferry schedules. After having experienced some fabulous Thai hospitality, this was a real downer for us.
On the positive side, location is great, even 500m up or down the beach would be much less convenient. You are exactly 5 minutes walk from shops, bars, market and McDonalds. (Semi) private verranda with your own beach chairs is invaluable. Also the beach is really nice in this area, just perfect depth and of course sandy. Cleaned daily, there is no trash on the beach, some in the water.
A real shame, this place has a lot of potential but misrepresented itself as a much better value for money.
