This place is beautiful. Set high up in the hills (but surprisingly close to the beach), the views are wonderful. Our room had a balcony overlooking the trees/beach. Could have spent the whole 3 days we stayed lying in the hammock!
What really sets it apart though, is the customer service. Andre, who runs La Cigale, just goes above and beyond. He greeted us personally on arrival with someone else who took our bags. He explained everything to us, gave us a mobile phone to use on the island, snorkels/masks and a helpful guide book. We were shattered on our first night after a long journey so made use of the takeaway menus in the room - we chose our food and rang Andre who called the takeaway and sorted out delivery etc. Couldnt have asked for more. There was also a DVD player and selection of DVDs in the room.
The place is well located, close to the action but quiet and relaxing. It really is the best of both worlds. Between myself and my partner, we have been to Thailand 3/4 times and we agreed that La Cigale is the best place we have stayed. It has that personal touch and is also excellent value. Will return!
