Starlight had been recommended to us by friends who had stayed here before, both long term travellers & those just on a holiday. We originally were going to stay 5 nights but ended up staying 10. There were really only 2 staff we encountered much but they were really friendly at all times. Room was spacious with comfy beds & good balcony, we got a room on the upper level from which we could see the sea but not all of them afford that view. The beach is amazing, clean & long with lots of different restaurants/bungalows to choose from to eat & drink. There isn't too much else to do on Thong Nai Pan beach but for what we were looking for it was perfect - we spent a fantastic 10 days lounging around & relaxing. The pool is really good & right beside the beach & they provide beach towels for guests. Only negative would be a occasional smell coming from the bathroom but after speaking to other people who were staying there it wasn't just our room!! Boat trips to other beaches can be arranged easily & they also can arrange taxi boats to Haad Rin for moon parties with last boat coming back at 6am if you're looking to party without having to stay there.
Highly recommended & I wouldn't take any notice of people saying it's overpriced, for what you get compared to Australia/NZ it's a bargain & a little slice of paradise!
