I stayed in the upstairs of the Round House itself- a spacious room with a high thatched ceiling, shared bath, private veranda w/ hammock, and a slim view of the sea. It was a great space that kept pretty cool in the heat. The cottages looked simple and good, I'd opt for one with private bath, and there's a sweet beach-front house that's worth trying to get into.
The gardens were lovely and the shared bathroom was very clean. As other folks have stated, the food was delicious! And Paul makes excellent cocktails, especially the Lanta Longtail- I wish I had one right now :)
There is a bit of road noise if you stay in the Round House or the back bungalows, but I slept right through it. If you're a light sleeper, the front bungalows or beach house would be better.
I loved Klong Nin beach! Round House is located in a pretty perfect spot, quiet but close to everything.
Across the street, Shanti Shanti is excellent- fresh croissants in the morning, chai tea, fruit salad. Also the massage place across the street- the best thai massage I've had.
