The accommodations in itself is lovely, and the only problem we had was that we had one plug between 3 people, and it kept tripping a lot of our electronics. As for smiley bungalows, try not so smiley. The staff seemed rather grumpy even when we persisted to say thank you and smile at them. One morning they brought my...

Perhaps the most memorable location of our 40 day trip. The staff are so ridiculously friendly and make sure you make it to their lake house! Unless you hate fun - then don't go to the lake house. Just make sure to pack some bug spray.

I have stayed here 4 times now & always do what I can to get back to Khao Sok and Smiley's every time I am in Thailand. The staff there treat you as more than just guests but as family as well & they are incredibly helpful in planning excursions and transportation.

I have been to Khao Sok several times in the last few year and each time has been made incredible by the family who owns and operates Smileys. Spending time in the gardens, Hammocks and restaurant is nice and relaxing. Don't forget to checkout the lake houses/ Jungle trekking. Thanks for some amazing memories Smileys!

There is not words to say in regards to the service! Amazing people. Right in the jungle. Loved it. Very close to a monkey temple just around the corner where you can feed monkeys. I've always wanted to do that and it cost 25 cents! The food at smileys... Omg I love those chicken strips they do, tempura I believe....

Smileys Bungalows in Khao Sok region in southern Thailand is an amazing place to rest you head for the night. The family that runs it treats you like there own, and will go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They also have jumbo hammocks on each pourch which create perfect mid day nap spots.

I cannot possibly say enough about the hospitality, kindness and generosity the Smiley Bungalow Family shows. This guesthouse has quickly become my home away from home in Thailand. The accomodations are modern, clean, concrete rooms with floor-to-ceiling glass doors showcasing the gorgeous jungle landscape. The common area is open and newly updated and the restaurant serves delicious Thai and Western...

The family at Smiley's is absolutely #1. They are the most happy, kind-hearted people you could ever imagine, welcoming you into their home. They work so hard to make sure their customers are happy, and it's clear they are happy to see you happy. The accommodations are perfect for Kao Sok, with fan rooms and hot showers. Oh.. and have...

I've had the incredible privilege of staying with the Smiley's Family numerous times over the years, and it has always been the highlight of my trip to Thailand. Top notch accommodation in an wonderfully friendly and picture perfect atmosphere. I love the Smiley's staff like my own family, and can't wait to see them all again. Speaking of family, I've...
