I've stayed here twice now, this year and last. This is a mixed place, with some people renting here to live here and some just on holiday. It's within okay walking distance of town and near the markets and the residential, suburban areas. But, Nanai road itself has some good bars and places to eat and it's a bit of a quieter life. I met a local girl nearby this time, early on in my stay, which kept me quite local to this area of town. That suits me; because, you can go out for a quiet pint without getting pestered by bar girls. They're fine if you want them, just that I already had a local lady and didn't want the mither.
All of the above makes this a better experience than being stuck in town with just the tourists, it feels a lot more Thai up this part of town. The rooms/apartments have everything you could possibly want for your stay, and balconies fronting onto homely Asian street scenes of everyday life in an island seaside town. They are clean and air conditioned and serviced daily.
I discovered a new bar called Crazy Witches, just around the corner where you could enjoy the craic with whoever was out, and play a few games of pool or a few games of killer, watch the football or the rugby and a good atmosphere to the whole place.
It's also well placed for getting to other parts of the Island, since the roads further into town are in a bit of a state at the moment and keep closing for repairs - coupled with the one way system this means that you have to keep changing your route if you are trying to ride anywhere from the town centre. Nanai is slightly further up the hill, so it doesn't tend to get these problems in the rainy season, and it has better links to the routes out of town to Promthep Cape one way and Tiger Kingdom the other.
