We arrived on Racha/Raya with the day tripper boat and headed to the bungalows to check-in. We were given bungalow 10 but (despite previous reviews) I kept an open mind. I shouldn't have bothered. It was horrible. Depressing even. The floor boards feel like they could break at any time. It's dirty, old, ants in bathroom, window has gaps in it. There was no way we would have slept. Next door were some more updated concrete bungalows with air con so I went down and asked if I could possibly upgrade and pay the difference. A girl told me it would be 3000 baht per night for these bungalows (I paid 7500 for 5 nights in horrible bungalow 10). Anyway, I was told I had to phone 'thai tours' to arrange it. I wasn't given a number of phone so used my phone to find the number online and call. They said it is 3300 baht per night. Then I went back to the desk and the man (?manager) said the bungalows are 3500 baht per night. He said he had to wait for a call and to pay later. He have us the key for an sitcom bungalow but by this point I wasn't getting good vibes off him and didn't want to check into a place without knowing what he wanted to charge. We left the island as I searched online and am currently in an amazing place (chalong chalet and long stay) back in chalong for which I paid £105 for 5 nights. I was glad to get off the island. The manager was so unwelcoming and the staff looked miserable.
