Lots of mosquitoes, very far from the beaches, loud animals and construction in the mornings, twice as expensive as any comparable accommodation on Koh Lipe. Useless wifi (worse than in most places on the island), bad service, no food and few drinks available for purchase.
Based on the many positive reviews I unfortunately I did the mistake of booking and paying for this accommodation in advance, otherwise I would not have spent a single night here. An attempt at negotiation basically yielded the answer "no understand, no can do, agoda got your money now".
Having posted an unfavorable review at agoda.com, the owners contacted me on Facebook with personal insults and threats - incredibly unprofessional! The truth about this place needs to get out.
