We arrived at Ko Yao Yai with no plans and in a hurry to find a place for five people to crash at before it got dark. Esmeralda View was the second place we asked (the first was full), and we were welcomed very warmly right from the beginning. In Thailand terms it is a bit pricey, but nothing compared...

And the food was very authentic and delicious. The place is run by Thai/Muslim people so there is no alcohol... but then again: there is... we...

We stayed at Esmereldas during the holidays and we loved it. The rooms were very nice and clean. Nice, quiet beaches in the area. The staff is very friendly, and offers great service if you need anything! The restaurant offers nice food and the breakfast is good. Overall a very pleasant stay.

At the time we stayed, we were the only guests at the resort, and both staff members (an elderly thai couple) didn't speak a word of English. We had to communicate using drawings and hand signals. However, they couldn't do enough for you, and they managed to sort us a moped rental, and boat to Krabi and always were there...

This place has around 15 very nice cabins. Half of them superior sea view half normal garden view. Both of them are very nice and worth a trial. The staff is extremely friendly. Whenwe were there Pond (she normally runs the place) was sick. Her mother did her best to support us but she doesnt really speak english so it...

Room was clean and basic, which is expected for the price. Views are amazing. However the first room's air-conditioner didn't work & was brought a fan. Managed to change to a smaller, cheaper room with working air-con but no compensation. Lady at the front, while friendly, does not speak English. Not a single word. Didn't meet Pond as other reviewers...

First of all I was all over Thailand from North to south so I know what I am talking about (even that the islands are totally again totally overpriced). I don't know who pond is (who is stated as owner of this resort in former reviews) but I've never seen her over the time I was here. The actual owner...
