Choeng Mon, Bophut or Maenam - looking for true beachfront...

Does anyone know of any resorts/bungalows on these beaches where you can get a bungalow which is literally on the beach? As in, walk down the steps of bungalow onto the sand?

We will be with our 2 year old daughter, so family friendly place would be great.

Also - anyone who has been to all three beaches, how do they compare in terms of quality of sand, ability to swim, choice of cheaper restaurants (we prefer to eat out of the place we are staying at).

Would our daughter be able to play in the sand at all three beaches? I have read one comment somewhere which said Bophut's sand was too shingly for children to play in. I can't understand why this would be the case but perhaps someone understands this?

Thanks!

We retuned from Bophut at the begining of march. During our stay we had 7 nights at the Waterfront hotel, it is run by Robin and Sue a very nice Engish couple. A very relax place with bumgalows and rooms. They do have a family size bungalow that is on the beach, A very nice place. Barnetbybob.

Fab - thank you. This was another place we were looking at. Proximity to fisherman's village looks good on the map? We are with a toddler so don't want a long walk - it would take 2 hours rather than 20 mins!

ive looked at Zazen they look lovely and if you go onto there own web site the information is really good , the rooms are right on the beach and some are larger to accommodate families.
