I know this Resort for a couple of years now, and this year was my third stay together with my family. We were all in all pleasantly surprised. I learned that since the beginning of 2011 the resort is under new management, and you can really tell the difference.
Our second time, 2 years ago, we came back because we loved Tanote Bay. The great view, the snorkeling and diving there. But nut so much, to be honest, because of the resort. It lacked a bit the friendliness and hospitality you know from other places in Thailand.
But not anymore! Nong Bla and Bob, the new managers and there team, make you feel welcome right away. The food in the restaurant got a lot better and the portions bigger, even they changed the restaurant a bit and added a kind of "lounge area" with this triangular cusions to sit on, very comfy now:) The furnishing of the rooms however did not change to much, unfortunately. But they promised they are working on it, and soon add a fridge and closet etc. to some of the rooms. Probably not to the really cheap ones though. But the room we stayed (seaview aircon) had hot water now, which two years ago it hadn't.
Tanote is a great place for snorkeling, our two children, 12 and 14, loved it to spent time on the beach there. Or they joined us on board the Calypso, the boat of the dive school next door. While we went diving, they had a great time swimming and snorkeling or watching the captain catch some fish. http://www.diving-calypso.de
So things are changing in the right direction, and we hope they keep it up that way!
We will be back next year! Sawatdee ka
