Baan Talay is a great place if you want to relax in a remote location and be away from the hustle and bustle at the main beaches. If you're looking for a place to explore bars and go party, then it is probably the wrong location for you.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Baan Talay in mid-June and had a great time. The staff was wonderful and always helpful, the food was yummy and the view from the deck made breakfast unforgettable. We always used the free shuttle to their dive school in the morning and went diving with their dive school New Heaven Diving or to the beach and took their shuttle back in the afternoon to relax in the hammock of our bungalow, have a good read and a nice dinner. You can go swimming in the ocean, but need to hike a small path downhill from the bungalows to reach a small deck at the stone shore. Access zu the water is not that easy, but bring Snorkelling gear and one is rewarded with a reef teeming with life (especially in the morning).
We would definitely stay again at Baan Talay.
