My family of 4 - me (28), hubby (33) and two kids ( 4 years and 6 month old) stayed in Palita from 8 Nov 11 until 15th. Our stay fell on Full Moon Party which made the beginning of the holiday slightly uncomfortable for us ( and by us I probably only mean me, because the rest of the family didn't seem to mind!). The uncomfort I meantion here has nothing to do with Palita itself but rather the mood and the crowd on the island, which dissapears right after full moon is over.
Now, back to the review of Palita itself. The location is ideal - 5 minutes walk from all the bars and party. We got the suite with the living room, right after the swimming pool. It was a great location - very quiet during the day and during the night as well ( room number 301). Free wifi was provided on check-in. There was no problem connecting, however only 1 device at a time. Meaning that if I work on laptop, my husband was unable to connect via his iphone.
The room was fantastic - everything every clean, lots of space for the whole family. My older daugher slept in the "living room" on the extra bed. She had her own corner with her own little table where she kept her her stuff. She absolutely loved it. The location of her bed gave us ( the parents) enough privacy during the night :)
Good quality baby cot was provided and was set and ready in the room.
There is no safety box in the room itself because the sliding door of the bungalow is easy to open. There is an option of living your valuables at the front desk, which is available from 8 am to 10:30 pm. We had a seperate bag with all the important things which we would give to the front desk the moment we leave the room.
There is LOTS of space to store clothes, bags and what not. This is very useful when traveling with kids.
The food at palita is FANTASTIC. Every time we would go out and eat somewhere else I would say that there is really no point of going anywhere. The food is great and the prices are great too! Hotestly, the only reason we ate in other places is just not to get bored!
The owners of Palita are very friendly and helpful with every single request. They make you feel like you are a part of their family. Fantastic service and warm smile.
Like on every island, there are mosquitos, so don't forget to buy mosquito repellent.
The pool is great - quite large and clean, open till 8:30 pm. I loved my morning swim while everyone else stil asleep after night life! :D
The full moon buffet was lovely. Nice decoration, great option of food. 500 baht per person.
After full moon, the island became exactly what I wanted for the family trip - quiet, romantic and amazing.
Palita also gave us free car transfer from the pier (both ways) and helped with everything from the moment we came in to the last second on the pier.
I would highly recomment this place for singles (during the party time), couples and families (after full moon) for a quite and amazing holiday.
