This place is mainly making profits on Thai package tourists. Nothing wrong with it, but this explains the attitude and how the place is run. Run down rooms, bad food, shaking floors/bridges( the whole place is sitting on the rocks and one walks on the wooden bridges all the time). Ok, they have a pool- but its cold and half if the sun chairs are broken. Rooms are a disaster- no shelfs, wardrobe or at least hooks. I had to keep everything in the floor. Dark, broken bathroom... Everything us just old and crappy... And this applies to Analay all in all.

This resort was just perfect for us. The location is extremely quiet and the beaches empty and mostly unspoiled. The manager was a little hard to warm to but he seemed to have a sense of humor. The breakfast times were very strict 7-9am do not turn up at 9.05. Breakfast was adequate. The room we had was very lovely with a lovely lush green surrounding and overlooking a lagoon and the ocean. We were in room 46. It did however overlook an amazing room that was on its own little island with a its own little bridge and big enough for 3 people. It had an incredible view and was very private with a jacuzzi. I am not sure how much it cost but would def get this next time, it also has bean bags. The cost was very high however, our room was 3000 baht a night which was very high but we did have a fridge, flatscreen tv, lovely location and very clean. The toilet did keep breaking every other day but nothing that caused us any problem. Our friends stayed in a place for 1200 which has no aircon or fridge or kettle and was on the main path but i think it was great value to be in such a nice resort.
You have snorkelling and kayaking right from the resort! Its brilliant and not expensive. There is a gorgeous pool that we just did not expect to be so nice and would even consider booking a room by the pool if we went as a group again. We did say that we would go back for more romantic holiday there because it is so gorgeous and our friends even went back 2days ago because they loved it so much so that says alot i think. The resort that i would have preferred was Tinkerbell but this was the best value we think. They have started to do fireshows as well which was ok but i was not expecting this and it is done by the staff which i was not sure they enjoyed particularly but this only happens when the resort is fully booked. They also do a bbq, the bbq was ok, the first night the fish was incredible but the next it was horrible. So a bit of a gamble the squid is lovely and you see them bring it in fresh from the catch.
A great thing is that they have water and hot water available all day which impressed us and they also have a well stocked beer fridge with wine and soft drinks but i didnt see cocktails. We took our own drink though because we didnt even expect there to be any beer available.
There is a littel shop very close by with everything you would need and also bike hire so we got motorbikes out for the day which was fab and easy to get around.
Def recommend.

Room tip: Try get beach front if possible

We stayed 2nights for Old VIP Jacuzzi room (4,000THB/night) and 4nights for New Air-Con Bungalow (3,000THB/night) and 4nights for New Fan-Bungalow (1,800THB) during a New-Year Holiday.

Rooms
This resort has a 2 type rooms.
Here has an Old Bungalows and New Bungalows.
Old Bungalows and New Bungalows are same price.
However prices are according to room category.

VIP Jacuzzi room
They provided old Bungalow VIP Jacuzzi room for First 2nights. (Most high category room)
Room is very small (Around 15sqm) and very dirty.
Looks just like a temporary shelter house.
They did not maintenance.
Jacuzzi function was not work. (Just bath tub)
And muddy smell water flowing to Jacuzzi.
Refrigerator was not work.
Also could not closed door without fitted.
Many insects come from lot of gaps and holes in the wall and door.
Mat has been used many years.
No springs and consumed.
Could not sleep well

Air-Con Bungalow
New Air-Con Bungalow is OK.
Room is around 40sqm.
Facilities are OK and room is clean
I do not know why this room is cheap than VIP Jacuzzi room.
Better than VIP Jacuzzi room.
We prefer this room.
However, toilette was not flushed.
They could not fix it.
Should be wait for our stool could be melt in the bowl.
Room is very dark.
There has a just 2 small ramps in a room.
We could not read a book.
Also many equipment were beginning consume already due to the maintenance reason.
However, these are not mind for us. It was small issue for us.

Fan bungalow
Room is very small. (Around 10sqm) they do not supply to hot shower.
Screen window is just one side.
Therefore, wind is not passed inside room.
This room is very hot with the evening sun shining in.
A temperature has been raised almost 40 decrease C or more.
But it very easy washes for dry out clothes due to strong sun shining.
This price rate was 1800THB par night by internet booking site.
We discovered same as fan Bungalow next beach.
Price was just 500THB.

Bamboo bungalow
Price is 500THB but we did not stay.
Looks just like a dog house or slum.
Feel is like a constructions worker if you will stay.

Foods
Prices are quite expensive.
Taste is poor but not terrible.
However, drinking menu is reasonable prices.

Resort.
Resort owner has been building a rooms but he did not make a road inside resort.
Animal trail can network to each rooms and restaurant.
We walked on the bush when go to restaurant or beach.
There are no ramps on the trails.
So, you have to hold a light if walking at night.

Service
Resort owner always works with effort.
Probably he is good man but he does not know how managed about resorts.
All staffs quality levels are very poor.
They can not speak English.
(Resort owner can speak English but not fluently)
Major staff can not speak Thai too. They are Cambodians.
(I can speak Thai but it was difficult communication with Cambodian staff.)

Environmental
Location is nice but you should be rent a motor bike for move in island.
Beach is very nice. (Not white sands but water visibility is good.)
Beautiful coral reefs lay at the beach.

Activity
Snookering trip is 700THB par person.
10:00 to 14:30
Speed boat available.

Summary
Room rate is almost twice expensive than other resort.
You are able to stay hear with comfortable if resort could be provided new bungalow for you.
All of constrictions are without maintenances.
Old bungalows are seems deserted houses.
Here is not reached to international standard service.
If you would like to stay at the here you do not miss antimosquito device and light and comfortable sports shoes for trekking in resort.
Danger for children or old person.

If someone ask to me.
Will you came back to this resort?
I would like to say YES if they provide New Air-Con room and less than 1200THB par night.

Room tip: should be stay new rooms.

We stayed for 3 nights there, but got very disappointed of the resort. The rooms looked quite old, although being just a few years old, the bed was not comfortable and there was no place to put your stuff, no closet. definitely no good value for money! Overpriced!

some more minor complaints:

The included breakfast lasted just till 9am, after saying that it is very early, the manager offered us 9.30 but if we arrived at 9.05 there was no breakfast anymore and only after asking the staff we got each 2 toasts and some jam, nothing else, although the breakfast includes thai-breakfast and english breakfast (bacon, eggs, omelette,...) and they made us feel bad for it somehow.

everyday in the morning there was a big group of people arriving and departing and lots of confusion next to the terrace of the resort. for example the manager talks to this groups via microphone.

the manager seems nice just until you don't want to buy extra activities, like a snoorchling trip, renting a scooter or kanu etc, from him.

The food was disappointing overall. the worse was when we ordered the most expensive dish, fresh seafood plate which included crab, squid, shrims, but everything was not very tasty, the squid was hard, the crab was very small and not good either.

The only nice is the outside of the resort, it is very green and you feel a bit like in a jungle. the beach is very nice too. very clear water and some fishes around you.
but you can have nice beaches without this confusion everyday. it was not as relaxing as in the resort (dusita) almost next to it, where we ended up staying afterwards.
the resort right to the left of analay looked cleaner, calmer and nicer rooms for less money! we usually got the scooter there, and the woman running it, was very nice.

we would NOT recommend A-na-lay.
