The beach huts are really nice just on saree beach, it's. Good location, as it's near lots of bars, shops etc and is a general busy spot. The restaurant is very reasonable and the food is as good as what's around koh Tao. The staff are very helpful especially Sam. The only downside was the Mosquitos, I didn't enjoy sleeping...

If the location is good enough, direct on the beach, the ratio quality/price is very low!!! This hotel was the most expensive of our Holiday but the service provided was very poor!! For breakfast, you are only allowed to choose one of the submitted menu.If you ask for one more nutella slice for instance, they won't forget to let you...

The quality of your stay will depend on your bungalow. If possible, book a beach front bungalow and if not, a bungalow with a large sliding glass door in front. I got stuck in a bungalow that was set back from the beach, with very small windows. It was dark and dreary. The bathroom had a mosquito leak, so every...

We really liked this 'resort' (although I wouldn't call it a resort). Our room was fantastic on the upper floor of a bungalow with a private view of the resort and glimpses of the beach area. It was quiet and the balcony was superb for relaxing and having breakfast (ask them to bring it up) and drinks. Buy mosquito coils...

We stayed in Palm Leaf for 2 nights on our travels, but I could have stayed here much longer. They have a variety of rooms available from budget beach huts to water front villas. The resort itself is fairly basic in terms of services but the rooms were lovely, it was right on the beach and only a short walk...

You find us at the north end strip of Sairee Beach. Palm Leaf offers the best view at the bay with its grey boulders and the colourful sea. Just a 5 min walking distance away from the village, it is still a very calm and private place to be. Moreover it is the only snorkeling side at Sairee beach.Set in a nice garden our lovingly furnished bungalows and rooms await your arrival. ... more   less
