We stayed here for 6 days, arriving on 1st May 2014 and what a wonderful place it was. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the accommodation (we had one of the pool bungalows) was clean and tidy although the bed was hard and the pool was out of this world. It was like getting in your own huge bath, the water was so warm and the views from the pool were heavenly. Breakfast was excellent with a great choice, something for everyone. We only went into Khao Lak one night as we found the food and service provided at Bangsak Village for the evening was great.
If you are looking for somewhere to totally unwind, chill and do nothing this is a great place to come - it was so peaceful and tranquil. We stayed after spending 3 hectic days in Bangkok and it was just what we needed. The beach is long and empty and as previous reviews state you are within walking distance of other bars etc should you fancy exploring. The only downside for us is that we were the only British guests and the other guests appeared to be German and French and did not want to give you eye contact let alone smile and join in a conversation - all the guests seemed to keep themselves to themselves which seemed very odd!
Would we come back - most definitely, it has been the most relaxed holiday we have ever had
