I loved Ton Sai, but really wish I'd stayed in another place by the end. The deck of the bungalow is pretty cool and is definitely the best feature, the bedroom average to OK and the bathroom poor. The location is good. Lots of monkeys around. The internet was slow, but due to the location probably understandable. Was expensive and every time I jumped on and before I actually started using it, one of the managers sat down for what I initially thought were nice friendly chats of half hour plus, but when I received my final bill they had charged me for talking to them! I'd usually only be on for 10-15 mins at a time, but was usually charged for 45-60mins. I paid for my breakfast each morning as I went, but they were also double charged (along with things I just didn't have) on my final bill & they argued I did not pay for it each morning - the actual person I paid it to! No power during the day. The place was very expensive ($35pn in low season) for Thailand & for this type of very basic budget accomodation. Just so many little things that left a sour taste. I don't mind paying my way - it was the principle of it really - felt like it was some sort of organised rip-off. Actually stayed earlier (Nov) but only allows to do this back to feb. This place could be such a better experience.
