We stayed at Sea View 5 nights in August 2014 but would have left before if we hadn't booked in advance. We read some positive reviews before booking and had great expectations but the place was a delusion. It seems that the resort has a new management (a young German guy with a French girl) which is completely unfit to run the place. They seemed more interested in having fun and hanging around all the time than looking after customers' needs. It took almost one hour every morning to have breakfast ready. When we arrived, nobody let us know the resort's "rules", so we found out that: The restaurant is closed on sunday nights, the room is not cleaned up unless you ask for it, they don't really know how many motorbikes available they have so if you want to be sure to rent one, you'd better ask well in advance. In general there's a lack of planning in everything.
The superior bungalow in which we stayed was a little old and very small.
The food was very good but The service too slow.
I have to say that The view is very nice, and The resort is 15 minutes walking from Ao leuk beach and 30 minutes from The wonderful Tanote Bay. You can take a motorbike but be aware that The roads are in bad conditions. The resort is a little bit far away from everything and taxis are very expensive (150 bath per person to go everywhere).

- We are a small family-run resort and restaurant offering stunning views across the Gulf of Thailand from Aow Leuk and Shark island to Koh Pangang and Koh Samui.
