We booked Dew Resort after a disasterous stay at Phangan Palm Beach Resort and Restaurant (I will publish my review on this when Trip Advisor create it on their site).
We had originally booked from 23rd August 2013 for three days, but enjoyed it so much, we stayed an extra night.
Our contacts were Aung, who was always helpful in our dealings with him, and his wife Pon. Both friendly and approachable, and very helpful.
We stayed in R5, which is a Superior Bungalow with a bay window literally 3 meters from the beach. The view was outstanding.
The pool was spotlessly clean. The restaurant food was freshly prepared and cooked to order. Personal favourites were the hamburger and the banana milkshake. However, every meal we were presented with was excellent.
The bar on the front played reggae... and only reggae. It is not loud, and the resort is not a party type of any description.
I do have a couple of suggestions though.
Complimentary water is provided, but only on day one. This seems odd, as all other places we stayed during our month in Thailand/Vietnam/Cambodia gave it on a daily basis. Not a biggy, as it is pennies to buy.. but still, it is a nice touch.
Our room was not cleaned in the four days. There is a 'clean my room' thing to hang outside the door, so maybe we should have tried it. I suspect the owners wish you to retain your privacy, and only clean/change sheets etc when requested to do so. It may be worth the owner telling you this when booking in. Again, not a biggy, but communication is everything in this service sector.
