I recently booked two apartments, originally two studio apartments. Upon arrival, we found that the studios are really small hotel rooms and we were able to upgrade to a two bedroom. The apartment offered a comfortable space to explore the island.
The pool was lovely and relaxing. Bear in mind that scuba groups use it in the morning. The internet was intermittent. The air conditioning in the two bedroom really only cools the bedrooms and we finally found that leaving the apartment open to the breezes to be the best option.
Great suggestions by the hosts for Aow Leuk Bay and the apartment manager also arranged for a long boat for the day.
The location of the apartments is a bit out of town, and up a climb, and quite a hike without transportation. Its a lovely walk in cool weather, Im sure. However, our visit never experienced anything but heat and humidity. Getting into town is a challenge without either a motorbike (heed the cautions--my son was run off the road by a taxi/truck and I was out $250!!!) or the contact information for a taxi.
