They room was a clean simple bed with a mattress that was pretty comfortable and a basic bathroom with a cold shower (you can book rooms with hot showers). The staff were friendly and always willing to help. Only problem was it was be a bit noisy at night at random hours.

I stayed at this "resort" for one night, before moving due to bedbugs. I had a trail of bites from the wrist of my right hand, up my arm, across my shoulders and back, down to my left wrist. And also on my legs, ankles and face. I politely asked the manager to change rooms but was met with hostility....

The staff wasn't friendly at all, basic rooms for the price. In three days they didn't clean it and you have to pay for the toilet paper!Very noisy at night. The only good thing was the location. But you can get better accommodation for that money

I never understood people complaining about cheap beach bungalows, especially in SE Asia. We found the rooms to be clean, comfortable, and as advertised. As for smells (we didnt smell anything) and upkeep (you get what you pay for, no surprises here), get over it, youre at the beach paying $10 a night, if you are so concerned about modern...

I really don't get how some people could actually be positive about this resort! I completely agree with SarahCatherine The manager of the place was ridiculously unwelcoming. Every time I had a question or even looked at her she gives you the most angry what do you want now eyes. The bungalow showers are not only cold water but are...

The lady with glasses that manages the place was ridiculously unwelcoming. I felt as if I was putting her out by staying there, and this came across every time I spoke to her at the reception. The bungalows are small for two people and really need updating. We asked to move to a deluxe room a couple of hours after...

The resort offers simple rooms at very reasonable prices. The staff are so nice, always smiling and very helpful even though we were a littlebit difficult buying 1 night at a time and changing the number of people living there. The restaurant is awesome. Cheaper and better than any restaurant nearby. Try their coconut shake!

On the quieter side of the island (but still %100 tourist devoted), we found the location a good mix between the chaos of Sairee beach and the relative isolation of Cookies. For the price and location, you can't go too far wrong. Just watch the water in the bathrooms wash sink - it had enough of a .. "presence" for...

We arrived and left on the same day because the bathroom was horrible. It was very small and there was't really a shower. There is no curtain or wall between the shower and the toilet (the size of it was 2 square metres). So you might as well poop and shower at the same time. The toilet didn't flush properly...
