Loved the location and style of the place if you are lucky to be in Villa 1. I think if you are in the other 2 then your privacy is hampered as you can see into the other villa rooms as you go down the stairs.
Tip - bring a torch! coming home at night after a few drinks always made the climb interesting.
There are lots of critters and bugs about but that is Koa Tao and comes with having the villas in such a quiet and unique spot.
Personally I loved the plunge pool...one thing I would say is you are not really able to chill out in the living room due to the mozzies waiting in the rafters! But as I said, you should expect that, so apply the spray, eat lots of garlic, drink lots of tonic or stay in the plunge pool.
All in all, we really like the place. I have to say, the service was great up until we forgot to tip one of the ladies who serviced the rooms occasionally (ran out of money tipping everyone else!!) The temper tantrum we got was horrific and sadly typified what a walking wallet of Bahts some Thai people really regard us as.
We would recommend this place.
