The reason for the mixed review was probably of our making. We had booked into the cheapest rooms so found ourselves living in a strange little paradox.
The budget rooms are cheap and basic. No worries thats what you pay for, so not complaining.
The bit that made it a bit off putting was that the resort itself is not a budget price. Food is nice but 2-3 times the price of elsewhere. Now if you have gone for the standard rooms thats fine as it will match your budget. As we were managing our budget (one of the bonuses about Thailand is you can and still have a great time) we ended up eating off the resort each day.
Breakfast was taken down the road in the jungle hut. Nice and very reasonable- so recommend to those on a budget.
The resort is doesnt have much else near it- so ended up hiring a car for the week. This was good value and a good price (hired from the rental place opposite Jungle Hut) and no sense of a rip off when returning the vehicle.
As we love to snorkel this was a godsend as the beach there isnt great for snorkeling. There is coral but its a long, long, long way out over a lot of shallow seaweed filled water which isnt much fun to swim over.
There is a shop and ATM nearby (2-3 mins walk)
Owners were very helpful and pleasant, food when we did eat in was nice.
Really cant be negative- but if you go for one of the budget rooms enjoy your stay- but be aware you will probably need to eat off site to keep any semblance of a budget.
