Having stayed at this Villa for more than 30 times in 10 years we know it very well. It is a step up from Backpackers but not luxury accommodation. The rooms are adequate for the price, with free mosquito zapper to use. The water, (which is pumped from ships brought from the mainland) is often quite cool..
The owner is very helpful and the staff try to help, so no minus points there. Areas which I feel need improving. Some parts of the pathways are dark and not good for walking at night. The internet coverage is not good and due to thunderstorms is currently turned off at 10pm. The breakfast sadly is the same every day, which after 2 days becomes boring. There is also a problem with guests placing towels over loungers near the sea but not using them until hours later.
The new apartments look good and the beach dining is worth a visit. For each the Villa has a speedboat to take you to the mainland for between 150-250baht. The cheap way is to wait for the bus and ferry for 80baht, but have a treat take the speedboat.
Helpful staff, good accommodation, I just feel a few more things need to be down to keep it up with all the other new developments in the area.More
