I can't speak highly enough of this place, it really was the perfect place to have a few nights by the beach. As per most places in Thailand, the staff were great, really friendly and always there if required. Clientele appeared mainly Scandanavian (Swedish the majority I think!). The complex consists of approx 23 bungalows in a 'U' shape around...

We only had a quick couple of days here but really enjoyed it. It's suited us fine to have cheap, simple accommodation with a pool right outside the door. The staff are lovely & the beds are comfy.

It is a decent accommodation home away from home. On Kata main road leading to the beach. Rooms are big enough to accommodate three individuals, all rooms are pool facing with individual balcony sit out.The reception staff are also very helpful. There are many good food joints around Ricos.
