We stayed in a bungalow second back from the sea. The size of the room is good and the bathroom was huge with a hot, powerful shower, much different to our time in koh phi phi. The air con worked well and was quite. There is a really nice outside area with a recumbent bench which can easily fit a...

Nice and warm welcome, friendly staff, beautiful bungalows, beautiful and peaceful beach ... What else do you need? I read some other reviews about prices being too high; well yes, this was also our most expensive stay in Thailand, but that was for the quietness. Anywhere else on the island was party party 'till the early hours and what good...

I stayed at the Palm Beach recently when i cam to visit my family. my cabin could have barely been nearer the water and basically I echo William's comments save that I didn't swim that far.

This is your spot. Close enough to walk to the main restaurants and far enough to dampen the sounds. I came here for four days and stayed for 30. It is not the cheapest place to stay and by all means not a fancy place. The rooms are clean and neat and spacious. By far the main reason I stayed...

We stayed in a bungalow for 4 nights in August 2013. Amazing resort, perfect location (Sairee North, not too busy at night but still very close to the main bars and restaurants), very clean, nice staff, wonderful view over the bay, clean beach, good restaurant. Would definitely go back.

We stayed a number of days at this resort, with it's nice big bungalows at the beach. Bungalow 104 is a decent size, almost at the beach and priced nicely at 3500. Breakfast is included in the price and available from 7:30 till 10:30. If you are doing a morning dive and need to leave at 6, the offer to...

The Palm Leaf resort is not honest. I made a booking for two nights and told them within minuts that i only wanted one night. They replied they had a "policy" of two nights minimum, which was a new policy and appeared nowhere on their site. Also they want the credit card information via mail to charge complete cost, after...

Too much wind. Trash at the beach. Unfriendly restaurant. Bangalow very old. 700 Baht. But nice garden and quite Place to stay at the party beach. They had only a safety box, when I asked and asked for it. More expensive bungalows has a saftey box in the bungalow, but not safe installed.
