I stayed here with a friend for one week on a Scoopon voucher. The value was amazing! We had an amazing villa right next the pool bar and couldn't believe our luck. The weather is very hot but the air con in the rooms is fantastic and there are fans in the open restaurant near the beach which are sufficient. Don't forget to bring your bug spray, especially for at night the mosquitoes are vicious. Another reason not to keep your door open at night, the bugs and lizards will come in.
This isn't a bad thing, it's just common sense.
Take note that most of the resorts in the area are more 'coupley', however we didn't really find this an issue and had a very relaxed holiday. Make sure to book some tours in reception with eco tours, they are very helpful and you are also able to book tours in town.
The taxi ride to town is about 10 minutes, so not walkable.
Breakfast is included with your room cost and is quite good, the fresh fruit every day is amazing. Especially the watermelon and pineapple. They also make a great omelette which we loved.
Try to eat as much Thai food as you can, it's a lot cheaper than 'western' food and is so much better than anything you will find in your own country.
Make sure to use the pools, as the sea has jellyfish warnings. We did swim in the sea regardless but atleast you know you're 100% safe at the pool. Plus the pool bar is fantastic, try the coconut delight cocktail (served in a coconut, Yum!).
