We stayed at Sunset Bungalows in June 2012 for a few nights. Situated on the main road (not busy in the slightest) fronted by Apache bar, there are many bungalows and rooms in the guesthouse (for someone on tighter budget) all of which are very well maintained and comfortable.
The owners and staff are very approachable, kind and helpful. The area is very quiet and a 15 minute taxi journey to Thong Sala and 30 minutes to Haad Rin, if you're planning on going to the Full Moon Party. It's very easy to get there and back.
Haad Yao beach is 200 metres walk and one of the nicest, cleanest and surprisingly quietest on the island. For snorkeling it's great!
I ate many times in Apache bar, which serves very tasty Thai cuisine and shockingly good western dishes like Spaghetti Bolognese, beef/pork steaks and homemade burgers, if you've had enough rice!
Definitely Sleep and dine here if you get the opportunity, it's a lot better and more authentic and atmospheric than the restaurant on the beach front (Haad Yao) and lot better value for you money.
