We stayed with our teenage daughters in a Castaway Family Beach Bungalow. The bungalow itself was beautiful, more like a 5 star hotel room inside. However we discovered that although we had 'private' property signs on the beach and on the path T the fron of the property, poeple persisted in walking right past the front door to gain a short-cut to the beach! If we didn't drop the blinds we had to be on the look-out when getting changed or showered. In the end, this ruined our stay. We complained to the Manager who responded immediately, he said he was aware of the problem, people were blatantly ignoring the signs but he didn't want to put rope boundaries around the bungalows. Even when we were sunbathing in the 'garden', a French family took great objection to being told it was a private. You just don't need or want hassle on holiday and we were disappointed because its expensive and it shouldn't be an issue. The Haad Tien also advertise the beach as private to the resort. It is not a private beach and it is open to anyone. I felt let down by both of these issues. On a positive note, my husband had the best Seabass dish we have ever tasted in the restaurant - cooked to perfection with a superbly balanced sauce.
