I stayed here for 4 nights in April 2008. We arrived by speedboat to the beach but the tide was too high & rough for the boat to stop, so he took us in to the next bay which was calmer, pheww as I was not looking forward to wading in with my bag above my head.
So we negotiated for a driver to take us to the next bay.
We arrived and checked into our little bungalows, they were perfectly fine for what we wanted & what we paid. Clean comfy, air conditioner, tv etc
It had a small pool and the resort is right on the beach, our bungalows where round the back in the gardens. It had an amazing backdrop, jungle clad hills behind. The first morning I got woken up by the loudest Frog chorus, it was quite funny really then the most deafening insect buzzing I have ever ever heard, Don't worry after the 2nd day i was used to it and it did not wake me.
I was not too impressed with the food here, even the breakie but it was included so we ate it!
The best place to eat is at the Baan Puri, gorgeous gorgeous! We also ate at another little hidden place that also had a cocktail bar can't remember the name. The beach is wide and big, sand lovely & clean & soft! The water was calm & clear one day then wavey & murky another. I enjoyed both to be fair. No snorkelling to be done there really. Yeah I loved the little bay for a few days. They had the odd jet ski on a few days, but we just lazed around on the sunbeds, great really. I did return but only for the day as part of a trip and was quite happy to be back on the beach. So yeah I would go again.
I had friends staying at the Panviman which looked lovely but I would have preferred to not spend double the money to be honest, same beach etc. Its just a bed at the end fo the day as long as its clean & bug free who cares (unless its a honeymoon or something).
