We planned our diving holiday in Khao Lak, to dive the Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock and decided to book at the Palm Garden Resort and Sea Bees Diving. The Palm Garden is a low-budget resort, somewhat far from the beach. Actually, you don't need the beach because the Palm Garden had a very nice pool. The rooms are clean, quite standard and the bathroom/shower is very spacious. I liked that!
The staff is very friendly and of course always willing to help. We had some communication errors we all had to laugh about. Don't expect the staff to be around 24/7, since Khao Lak is a quiet place with not many people around. The Palm Garden is in walking distance from the Tsunami Memorial, the Khao Lak Market and many places to go for drinks and food. It has a diving center located on the resort, so many divers book this place.
Only negative point I can think of is the noisy frogs and crickets that try to keep you from sleeping at night, but hey, you're sleeping in the middle of nature! Love the place and I would come again!
