I couldnt disagree more with Kracmunkie's review. I'm sure he must have made a mistake & stayed elsewhere as I absolutely loved Bo Phut & the Eden Bungalows. We had a deluxe bungalow which was clean, spacious & comfortable. The outdoor bathroom was fine - you should probably not holiday in Thailand if you are scared of a few mozzies & bugs. The grounds of Eden were also lovely with a fishpond, gardens and pool area and the staff were great. I loved the breakfasts where you could go for western stuff or thai. I also thought they were in a good location of Bo Phut - in the fishermans village close to the restaurants & bars. It was quite a walk to the other resorts such as zazen so I think if you were staying here you wouldnt get to eat at the other restaurants as much.
I really didnt get the 'only stay here if youre French or a hippy' comment - when we were staying there was a mix of ages, nationalities, couples, families & traveller types. Did he/she only want to stay with all Americans having exactly the same holiday as him/her? If so I would say Kracmunkie you are a narrow minded jerk!
The beach was lovely white sand and although there was a strange texture to the sand once in the water, this was just because it was so fine & the sea so calm I think - it was perfectly clean anyway. We went to Chaweng for the day & a night & although the beach was a little nicer it was also 4 times as packed with sunbathers, more people trying to sell you things and a plane flying over very low every 30 mins. It also stunk of egg and I was so glad then that we were staying in beautiful Bo Phut.
We stayed for 5 nights & were spoiled for choice for restaurants, had lovely thai meals, seafood grills on the beach & also a really nice italian. We also loved having cocktails at the Pier & then heading back to one of the bars nearer to our bungalow.
I would reccomend Eden & Bo Phut, I am telling all my friends they must go, I thought it was paradise!
