Charm Churee is a very interesting and very Thai experience. Our room was actually made up of several small buildings (shower, bedroom, balcony etc) which you reached by a maze of stairs and turns. Breakfast was quite good and the Starlight restaurant was very nice at night, but a little pricey.
Staff were generally helpful but we ran into a few problems after things were lost in translation. Lesson learned in Thailand: Never assume anything and double check *exactly* what you get from tours to avoid surprises.
Only real let down was the advertisement as Eco friendly hotel. We saw shower water and wash basin dropped straight into the sea. Pamphlets make a big deal about "not letting a single drop of detergent go into the ocean". Clearly false. No wonder the coral in private beach is pretty much all dead, there is not much to see :(
