We choose this resort first (based on the reviews on Tripadvisor), then made our air and other accommodations. It was one of the best decisions we made! Prior to arrival the resort provided great support and details on how to get to the island and to their resort. When making the reservation, we were required to provide a down payment via PayPal - not a problem, but thought it was worth mentioning as they couldn’t take a credit card directly over the internet. However, once we checked in and paid the remaining portion, it was done via credit card.
The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The first thing our daughter wanted to do each day was to run and see the staff in the restaurant! The staff at the main desk and tour booking were also friendly and helpful.
We stayed in a Beachfront Villa and totally worth it! We had direct access to the beach - which was key for us as our 6 year old wanted to play in the sand and surf. The beach is perfect for kids - clean, clear shallow water without heavy waves. The beach was clean and filled with interesting shells, crabs and even a sea turtle! Inside the villa we had a kingsized bed (typical hard Asian bed), an extra bed for our daughter, a TV, DVD player, fridge, closet, and bathroom (shower only). It had a large front porch that we used as an extra room - great storage for shoes, toys and all beach needs on the porch.
The restaurant served Thai and Western dishes - both were good quality, but especially the Thai food. The daily breakfast provides enough choices where all parties were satisfied. Pool area great with enough beds and towels for all.
In all, we were extremely happy with this resort but a couple of things that I wish I knew prior to arrival - the resort does not provide shampoo/soap. Not a big deal as there is a 7/11 near by where you can pick up necessities but for the first night we didn’t have them.
It is a quiet, peaceful resort but close enough to walk to the small town with different restaurants, 7/11, yoga camps, and bars. We are all ready trying to figure out when we can return!
