We arranged for the hotel to pick us up from the pier prior to arriving. The man who picked us up was waiting next to the pier with a board with our name on it, it was easy to spot.
It took about 10 mins to get to the resort at the north end of Sairee Beach and got dropped off at reception to check in.
We stayed in a superior sea view bungalow about 10 yards from the beach and the restaurant. The room was quite small but we really liked it. The room was all wood inside and bright in the day time. The bathroom was big with a nice shower area.
The view from the room and the terrace balcony was really nice, we liked to chill on there with a Chang and watch the sunset at night.
The beach was nice and quiet, the sand wasn't the softest but it was ok, The sea was perfect, you could walk out really far and it was really warm. If you venture out near the rocks look out for the sea urchins, i didn't!!
The resort is about a 10 minute walk up the beach from the bars and restaurants some of which are very nice.
There was a bit of noise from long tail boats early in the morning a couple of times, and the sound of bass one of the nights from a bar up the beach, but it didn't ruin our stay.
The hotel restaurant served nice food and cheap drinks at happy hour.
