In 1 month in Thailand this was the best place me and my girlfriend stayed, not even because the rooms were especially nice - they were clean and had decent aircon and were fairly average. What really made this place stand out was the staff, location and restaurant. Bobo and 'Baby' were some of the nicest and funniest people we...

We really loved this place and especially the receptionist Bobo, who went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The room were fine, the toilet had trouble flushing sometimes and there were no hot water for showering, because the sun wasn't out. On our last day we found BED BUGS! Ugh we both had bitemarks on our legs....

The hotel and grounds are quite dated but the welcome you get from the staff at this family run hotel on the beach makes up for the faded paint and mod cons. We stayed in a beach bungalow, it was pretty basic but that is reflected in the price but more than adequate and clean. The hotel restaurant was really...

Sea front bungalows positioned perfectly, our hut was the row behind the seafront huts and it made no difference. We were still a jump from the sea and the pool. The inside of the bungalows were not up to scratch when we first arrived, but once we settled in and got to appreciate the area the rooms didn't seem as...

Great time here. Everything is as good as I remembered. I decided to bring my 8 year old this time and she loved it. So much she wants to live with Beaubo. Great host. Great location. Go here. I would recommend booking a bungalow by the pool as you get sea view from the word go.

The staff here are absolutely lovely especially BeauBo who made our stay truly wonderful! She is such a sweet lady and nothing is too much for her. The rooms - they are ok and very basic, perfect for a couple of nights to 'flop and drop.' The bathroom again is ok does what it needs too. Swimming pool area -...

I can't praise this place enough. Originally booked for one night but extended our stay because we loved it so much. Unbelievable view over the sea which offered some incredible sunsets and thunderstorms over on the mainland. You can also hire scooters on site which is perfect for exploring the island (not to mention extremely fun). The staff were so...

We managed to book only one night due to high season and the fool moon party but our experience was a pleasant one. Cheerful and helpful staff. Thank you, BoBo, for warm welcome and valuable advice. Great value for money.

I didn't stay here, but a set of friends did so I joined them for food here everyday. Bobo was so welcoming and friendly - she greeted every guest by name every day and went completely out of her way to help us. The food is amazing - the banana and peanut shake is absolutely incredible. All the staff are...

The staff was the most special thing about this resort. The rooms are great and restaurant was delicious.. even location is perfect (not party zone but lots available within walking distance). Scooters are rented on site.... But it was the amazing staff that makes this place a true gem. Thank you Bobo...you are such a special person!
