We looked in a few places and they were all much more expensive than here. We had a superior room with a balcony (ok, overlooking the busy road, but nice to sit outside) which the receptionist rapidly reduced the price from 1300 bt to 1000 bt a night when I said it was over our budget. We had a fridge which you need so you can shop at the supermarket or 7/11 as Khao lak is very touristy ie lots of 2 weeks package deals which keep prices really high! We were shocked at what the "taxis" charged for what would be a 20 bt bus ride most places! Restaurants all geared towards western tastes. I ate the blandest green curry i ever had! Due to costs everywhere we spent lots of time around the lovely little pool (hardly any sun longer wars!) and in our room as the TV had 2 US channels and lots of films. Good value, nice place but the staff really need to learn some more English! And I agree with a previous review, rooms not getting cleaned until well into the afternoon is not good enough.
