We emailed prior to going and didn't get responses soon enough to help plan our journey. The hotel has. We booked direct which was good as you are able to request pick ups from Bangkok and ferry or speedboat to the resort. The hotel ferry service has allotted times and takes you directly to Ao Wai the bay the hotel is located in. This means you don't have to worry about transport to the hotel from the usual pier (Nadan) at the top of the Island. Speedboat times are more flexible especially if you have a large group. When you book direct you have to go to the office in Ban Phe opposite the pier. They sort your paperwork out and a car/truck takes you to your ferry or speedboat when ready, all very much easier than doing it yourself at the pier. The hotel reception was helpful and spoke good Engish. Breakfast was limited not very inspiring and eggs were always overdone. We only ate lunch at the restaurant and the service was very slow. The food was okay. There is a small shop on site with a limited choice of nibbles and drinks but you can buy ice. Restaurant closes at 9pm and the hotel was very quiet. If you want this then its fine. We were in a big party of 11 and went up to the road and hailed a truck to Sai Kaew beach where all the nightlife is. We paid 400 bhat for a truck each time. We didn't haggle too much but I'm sure you could get it lower. Ride is bumpy but fun. Rooms are shabby. Lots of black flies and mosquitos so take plenty of spray!
