We stayed at the Paradise Resort for 3 nights. As it's on Long Beach it's a lot quieter than around at Tonsai. The beach is great and the hotel is great too.
You get a longtail from Tonsai wharf for 100BHT per person, and they will take you around to Long Beach. The only downside was that there was a cyclone on our last night so we had to walk up the beach and through the jungle to get onto a longtail back to the wharf as they couldn't stop on long beach. The guides helped us with our bags and the walk is only 10 mins.
When we arrived the check in was easy and we got taken straight to our room.
We ate most of our meals at Paradise Pearl hotel next door (1 min walk) which is cheap and the food is awesome, the service was really good, i think that was mainly because it was fairly quiet this time of year but we couldn't fault the service at all. There was a bit of construction around so i think Paradise will have a restaurant soon?
We also went around to Tonsai for dinner which was good, a few good bars also, there is a lot of young people in Tonsai and has a good party atmosphere.
Our room was nice and serviced everyday (Deluxe Beachfront), the bathroom was roomy and clean. We were a bit worried by some of the reviews here but we had no problems, we saw a gecko or 2 but this is normal.
Beware the longtail boats, it was fine for my girlfriend and I to get in and out of, but some people we saw did struggle, and i could imagine older people would have a lot of trouble getting in and out.
Long beach is fantastic and Paradise Resort is a great place to stay to relax, don't pay to much attention to the negative reviews and whingers on here.
