Spent 5 days here in July. First thing that hits you about the place is its relative seclusion from everything. Whilst it isnt far from the main road, bars, shops etc, it has an air of tranquility about it.
Pot Pong, the owner/host is welcoming and friendly, and is always smiling! I had an air con bungelow on the beach, and whilst you wont find a TV or safety deposit box, you simply dont need it! Pot puts all your belongings in his safe, and they are very secure. As for other room amenities, it has everything you need. The bar/lounge area is very cool, with bean bags, cushions to sit/lounge in. The good choice of food is delicious, and is well worth reasonable amount they charge. Drinks are also plentiful, with good selection of beers and juices. I highly recommend the coconut shake (with rum) which always went down well.
Location is lovely, with a nice sandy beach, very shallow and very calm water (as its set in a large bay area). I would recommend hiring a moped as this is the best way of seeing the island. Pot can arrange this for you, and its only around £4 a day. Bargain!
I also went to the half moon party, where Pot enjoyed painting everyone, with some hilarious results. Always smiling, always entertaining, he was a great host.
I met some wonderful backpackers and fellow travellers here, and its such a peaceful and relaxing place to stay.
I plan on returning in October for 2 weeks, and I would highly recommend the V View.
Hope this helps! :)
