          The room had a damp smell, bad ventilation. I stayed for a few nights and was quite desperate to leave. The breakfast area they have is beautiful though, and the free morning yoga was lovely. If you’re just crashing for a night totally fine, but any longer and it feels quite uncomfortable. Some simple improvements would make the room better..curtains around beds, better ventilation etc.

          VERY BAD!”

          The Bungalow is not at the sea as it looks like on the map. It‘s behind some other hotels in the darkness, no light at night with no real pathway. I wasn‘t able to lock it, i got dead and alive insects in my bed, also some who crawl in your ear. There is no light in the „bathroom“, no flush at the toilet, you even dont get any paper nor you also dont have a basket to put it in. The shower is nearly over the toilet so i dont know how this should work at all. The whole bungalow is very dirty and rotten. But the most ugly thing was, that there was a big brown tarantula running nearly over my head... so i wanted to cancel the room. I didnt get any money back, i also didnt get an answer to my requests to them. This was the badest bungalow and unfriendliest hotel ive ever been. dont go there!

          Very beautiful and quiet place, cheap food with the discount at the restaurant. When we arrived we found out that the cheapest bungalows that we had already paid for was actually located 5 mins walk from the reception and communal areas, near a construction site, not quite close to the beach and we were very disappointed (not with the accommodation that was very basic) but with the fact that they let us sleep over there without telling us in advance it will be so far from reception and restaurant... but we talked to the staff and they let us stay on a very nice bungalow on site with a beautiful view on the sea but we had to pay 500 baht extras per night, which was well worth it! All in all a great place but make sure you are aware than when you book the cheapest bungalows you’ll end up a five minutes walk from the main area!

          Terrible experience”

          We are not picky or complaint travellers. We love to give decent reviews when treated well. However, at this place we had an awful time. Having booked in October for arrival in January, we arrived at 6pm after a long journey from Bangkok, to find they had no room suitable for us. They eventually gave us a room with no functional toilet or shower, with a mouldy extra bed. Then we were unexpectedly asked to leave next day, after making a complaint to Agoda about our treatment. We are still trying to negotiate a refund, as agoda do not seem to have established what happened and think we somehow cancelled our booking. We had to find alternative accommodation at short notice. It ruined a long planned holiday for my daughters birthday, which we had worked hard to save for. I have never had such a bad experience whilst travelling. Awful unprofessional place.

          Nice bar and shared work space to hang out in, but some of the bungalows they are renting are 5-8 minute walk away from the beach, next to construction site. If you get a good deal, it's worth the price.

          Très joli mais quelques petits bémol est ”

          Le cadre est magnifique! Si vous voulez être au calme c’est là que vous devez loger. Si vous voulez un minimum d’ambiance par contre il vaut mieux aller ailleurs. Niveau service, le fait qu’il y ait beaucoup de bénévoles de partout dans le monde faut que je n’y ai pas retrouvé le charme et la chaleur thaïlandaise... un peu dommage. Petit déjeuner très très bon. Prix des conso pas si bon marche mais petite réduction pour les personnes logeant à l’hôtel. Niveau bungalow, j’e vais un double avec fan et sea view (enfin derrière les arbres...). C’est très simple et je déplore un manque d’entretien. Aucune pression dans la douche, matelas un peu usé... un rafraîchissement ne serait pas du luxe. Et sur 6 nuits, aucun ménage de fait... Malgré ces quelques points négatifs, je recommande l’endroit pour sa relation qualité prix (prix en promo).
