First of all, insist to your driver to drop you off in FRONT of the resort, and not at the street sign saying "Palm View Resort 150m". For them it's a detour of 10 min, otherwise you'll be jungletrekking with your bags for the next thirty minutes trying to find the resort. Like I did. But I'm still young and vivid, so it was a free experience for me. Once arrived at the resort (which isn't really a resort, but hey, who knows the difference anyway?) I was immediately warmly welcomed by 'mama' and 'papa', the hosts of the resort. They we're cursing on the stupid driver too for dropping me there. They told me I could've called them and their son would've come and pick me up. Didn't knew that! So, future visitors, if your driver really doesn't want to drop you of in front, just call them! The bungalows have no AC and the small holes in de wooden walls allow some insects to enter, but that's nothing a good bugspray can't solve. I think the general feel of the bungalow was very nice, with a good bed, clean sheets and matrass, klamboe with no holes and a perfectly equipped bathroom. You had to flush with a bucket, but that wasn't a problem for me. You will spend most of your time touring (they offer a good selection) or just sitting in front of the house in the restaurant, chatting to other guests or the hosts. Kong, their song is an extremely sweet, helpful and friendly young man. He came back from living in Bangkok to help his parents out in their business because they can't handle it all by themselves because of their age. This is a proof of what a warm and true family this is. So, you shouldn't go here if you expect it to be a 5 star resort. Go there to stay in a real Thai-family resort. To the family: thanks for making my stay in Khao Sok memorable and keep up the great work!
