The Good: You can get beach front room which is literally in front of the ocean. You can listen to the waves as you sleep. (Costs little more)
The water is clean and white beach sand.
Reasonable scuba sessions at the hotel. 1,700 baht for >3 hours.
Food is decent nothing spectacular.
The Bad: Noisy afternoon visitors that parties for 4-5 hours and then leave and dogs balking without leashes.
Expensive drinks. Bring your own booze.
Room is reasonable at 3,000-4,000 baht but the trip itself costed me over 4,000 baht round trip. (Getting to the pier, etc). So I recommend staying more than one night to get the money's worth.
Overall, I will go back for the location and fun scuba diving at Coral Island Resort.
