I stayed in a deluxe bungalow with really nice wooden in- and exterior, air-con (didn't need it) and a very clean and cozy king size bed. Even the bathroom looks nice, was clean and the shower was warm. Except a gecko there where no animals in the room...I think. On the veranda there is a hammock, table and chair. The only things I was missing in the room (in regards to the room price) where a hairdryer and a TV or even better, an iPod stereo-system. On the other hand I can understand that a sound system might get victim of the full-moon crowd. ;)
The atmosphere outside is best described as "chilled" with hammocks at the beach and seat cushions in the lounge area. The food was top, especially for breakfast and lunch. Even the coffee is great. All this is served by the owner himself, a legend called POT. Everything is easy going at V-View - you don't even have to pay each time or tell your room number, he takes notes and you get the (correct) bill at the end of your stay.
You can easily hangout in the lounge area or at the beach whole day. Big plus: Internet in the lounge area is for free, no matter if you use the installed PC or your own device via WiFi. I have seen a lot of resorts in Thailand where Wifi either didn't work or you had to pay for the PC. Unfortunately there was no Wifi my own bungalow. This would be perfect to hangout on your own veranda, so you dont have to walk to the lounge for every single whatsapp message.
If you kitesurf, the V-View is half a mile away from the best kitesurf school on the island. You should go by scooter which you can rent at the resort as well. Had Rin is approximately 15 mins by scooter or taxi.
check the room before and decide if you need A/C or if a fan is sufficient. Fans rooms are approx. 1...
