We had a great time in the Palm Leaf Resort. The price for our bungalow was slightly higher than what we wished for but reading the other reviews we got a great deal (I believe we paid 1200 bht/night), probably because there was a construction going on behind our place. Our bungalow was clean and cozy. The resort is right on the beach and there is a restaurant as well, so you do not necessarily have a reason to leave. The staff was friendly and nice, it had a feel of a youth hostel. We made friends with one of the Burmese waiters and he was giving us recommendations on what to do on the island. He recommended a guy to hire for a snorkeling trip around the island who kind of ripped us of. So be careful - my observation was that the Thai people are ready to take whatever they can, other service staff is more honest.
