Haad Yao is a great place to stay- the beach is gorgeous, and there's tons of little beach bars and restaurants in walking distance of the hotel if you want to venture outside of their onside restaurant.
Which you will. Trust me.
Not only is the food overpriced, but the staff is borderline bipolar- ignoring you one minute, then laughing and smiling the next. They could care less about your satisfaction, comfort, or overall opinion. There's only one girl there that was always sweet, responsive, and helpful. And never looked at you like you were an idiot or total nuisance for asking for something.
The rooms are nice, though. Decent size and reasonable for the cost. Same with the location. We preferred staying out of haad rin's hecticness, and the transport to and from the full moon party was easy enough.
Lastly, beware of the she-devil and evil bald man running the front desk. They will go above and beyond to make sure you are welcomed in the WORST possible way. Charging you extra for all these hidden costs not stated SIX MONTHS ago, when we booked it.
Overall- nice place, clean, spacious, good beach, good pool, decent food- awful staff.
