I stayed in low (rainy) season so it was very quiet at Monkey Island (and the whole of Koh Mak) - there were only a handful of us staying there. Be aware if you go in low season that a lot of places are shut - there was not a lot of choice of restaurants and dive shops etc were closed.
Because it was low season I got a great deal on one of the baboon huts (fan and shared bathroom). The bar and restaurant were only open until 8pm and there was no live entertainment or music playing until late, which, as I was there to relax suited me fine.
The staff were friendly and attentive, and the food in the restaurant was good. The resort is right on the beach and the island is really easy to get around - I walked to most places but you can hire bikes too. The guys at Monkey Island picked me up and dropped me off at the pier which was really handy.
I can imagine this being a really fun place to stay when it is high season, and very popular as it is on one of the best beaches in the island. I'd stay there again.
