Beautiful and typical Thai island with white sand beach, beach front bungalows ( not all ) smiling staff who unfortunately have little resources to satisfy guests requests ( I wanted to water ski or hire a jet ski or SUP, all not possible ) Because this is an island we were totally dependent on the resort for our holiday experience as there is no where to go but to a tiny village along a dirt road with nothing in it. The food is well below standard with everything tasting the same no matter what is ordered off the menu ( brown sauce or brown sauce with chilli ) and because meals are the only activity at the resort it becomes monotonous, The general manager was very nice and tried very hard to please and took our concerns seriously. After moving us to a new villa away from the construction noises but there was little more he could do for us. The general feeling after talking to other couples at the resort is that we all felt captive on an island with poor and expensive food and little else to do besides enjoying our own company. A place to go where you can not do anything but rest and work on your tan! We are glad we only booked 5 days and other guests even left early!! To end on a positive not this place is great for your love life and any reading you might need to catch up on!!!
