We originally planned to stay here for 2 nights but ended up staying for 4. We stayed in one of the rooms, not a bungalow. The rooms were lovely, decorated simply but nicely with full amenities and were very clean. The shower water pressure was good too.
The food in the restaurant is superb - by far the best English Breakfast we had in Thailand! We were 2 couples and decided that the food was so good and reasonably priced in the restaurant that we ate at least 2 meals there per day. The restaurant staff were lovely and friendly, with a couple of them making jokes whenever they got chance. We were always greeted with a cheery "HELLO, GUTEN MORNING! SABADEEKAAAAA!" followed by jokes about items on the menu being made of monkey brains, monkey blood, etc... Very funny for the first couple of days, but a little irritating when you have a hangover and just want to relax!
The resort is right on the beach, and has a great happy hour in the bar where you can sit an watch the sunset. Definitely recommend the strawberry Daiquiri! Also, when we were going to the half moon party but couldn't find any shops to buy the UV paint, the guy behind the bar gave us some of his own personal stock to use which was really kind. We offered him money, but he wouldn't accept - he seemed to have fun just watching us make fools of ourselves and cover ourselves in paint!
We rented motorbikes through the hotel for a few days, also very reasonably priced and easy. The company they use recommend that you take photos of your bike first and make a note of any existing scratches so that there's no discrepancies when you get back if you've damaged the bike. Great service.
We also had a massage at the hotel's mini spa area. This was a good 30% more expensive than the places on the street outside the hotel, but well worth it. Possibly one of the best massages I've ever had.
Overall, absolutely great resort. I would definitely go back and definitely recommend to others.
Worth paying a little extra for a room over a small bungalow, as they're much bigger,
