I stayed here for the second time, and although I love the cottages for the jungle feel and quiet, I wouldn't choose it again. The food options are limited, expensive (and not that great), and the transport is non-existent. They charge 200THB per trip, one way, into town, whereas other cottages nearby give unlimited free transfers. The tours from here are also expensive, they charge 3000THB for a day lake tour, which you can easily get for 1800THB from many of the tour agencies or hotels in town.
Stay here if you want peace and quiet, and are happy to just lay around on your balcony (there is a small part of the river you can swim in too, but beware the fish - they bite!). If you want to go to the National park, you are best to stay elsewhere in town.
