I don't understand what the negative reviews are about on here, I would suggest people read reviews so they know what to expect when booking.
We booked a beach cottage and yes they are not on the main beach, they are set on a small rocky beach which is equally as picturesque, lovely loungers for use free of charge and very quiet. If you want to go to the main beach its a 10 minute walk away and lovely to use as there are lots of free loungers, and a beautiful quiet beach, clear blue sea.
There are numerous pools, 3 within 5 mins walk from the beach cottages.
You can book accommodation on the main beach but in all honesty you get a lot of people walking past so I prefer where we stayed.
The staff were very friendly, and took us to our room in a buggie and showed us our room.
Aircon was great, bed very comfortable, mini bar and some movie channels as well.
The bathroom wasn't luxurious but very Thai and added it to the beach cottage feel :-)
Breakfast was good but we didn't have dinner there so cant comment on that.
The grounds were beautiful and brilliantly kept - just such a gorgeous resort.
Very close to restaurants as well within easy walking distance down the beach :)
They offer a free ferry service from the mainland and free green truck to resort which was amazing and saved us a fair bit too.
I would completely recommend staying here it was a beautiful hotel in beautiful grounds.
