If you are looking for a bit of old fashioned charm at a brilliant price this is the place for you. Yes the rooms are a bit tired, but at this price what do you expect? Dieter is a lovely host who tries hard to make sure you have a pleasant stay and genuinly cares about making your days enjoyable. The rooms are kept spotlessly clean by his two Thai assistants. The air con is very welcome. Sitting on the decking watching the boats and the wildlife whilst sipping a beer from the honesty bar is pretty much as good as it get at a bargain price. The food was the best we had in Thailand, the sea bass with mango salad is to die for, we orderd it both nights. The local area is pretty much the real Thailand, tatty charming vendors along the alley. The swimming pool is a welcome addition and the kayaking is fun. The atmosphere in the evening is a bit like a house party as there is no one else around. Dieter arranged for a local small boat to take us around the south of the island to bang bao to avoid the long bus trip, a really fun way to get to the other side of the island. 1200 bht for a fun way to travel. Thanks for a lovely few days.
