We stayed in a regular Fan Bungalow which wasn't prepared for us. We had to wait 2 hours someone prepared the room. In the mean time the Manager/owner? was just standing there with a bad attitude like we were the ones to blame. And it stayed like that for the coming 3 days :-( The Bungalow was to keep us...

This resort is in a nice location, with walking distance to the beach, tours, a couple of restaurants and a convenience store. Room was nice and tidy. I would not call it a resort though, as there is no resort pool and does not have that resort feel to it. Staff friendly but speak little English. Food was yum. Would...

We moved from next door 5 stars Santhyia resort here, it was great. We have stayed in the big concrete bungalow, the room and bathroom were very clean, the personnel very fast and accommodating - the opposite what we experienced next door with far more personnel wondering around - and the evenings were lovely at the restaurant of the resort...

Bungalos are mid-range/basic but with good sized rooms and air con / fans. Amazing beach-front location with restaurant overlooking the sea. Great food. Bike hire / activities available from nearby resorts, and worth a trip round the island. Hotel can pre-arrange taxis for pickup at one of the ports.

We stayed at Santhiya resort but came to Yao Yai Resort Restaurant daily. We really enjoyed the food and relaxed atmosphere. A good choice, reasonable price. Nice place to avoid Santhiya's crowd. Highly recommended!

Excellent rooms and best restaurant around, reasonable priced and it's tranquil. I really don't understand why some people write those horror reviews about this place, probably from competitors or black-mailing backpackers !. We had a wonderful stay, we ware practically on the beach, you don't have to walk or climb a mountain to get to the beach.

Our stay at this place was a real disappointment. While the beach and the view are indeed very nice, our bungalow was in a terrible condition and smelled like mold. We have never before experienced a more stubborn hotel manager and even though we booked four nights, we immediately fled after staying only one night. Confronted with the resort's poor...
