I accidentally posted this under "bangtao seaside resort". That was a mistake, I didn't stay there. So here goes ...
Nestled at the end of the beach, the resort restaurant divides the quiet absolute seafront from the busy package deal complexes popular with Russian tourists. No lines of sun lounges or beach sellers here, the resort seems to be divided from it by an invisible barrier.
The resort has a small, but functional pool, it's spotless maintained by its family owners. Plenty of space, privacy and zero noise at night. Staff are friendly and helpful, rooms were made up daily with fresh towels and linen. Room had fridge and kettle, stocked with bottled water. 2 adults and 3 kids in a spacious air conditioned room.
The resort feels family run, there's no pressure to do anything our book anything. However, they will make phone calls or chase up people for you. There's decent free WiFi too.
Breakfast was included and very generous. Meals were typical of local pricing in cafes. Surin beach is 250baht in a tuk tuk and has a great night good market for cheap eats and great seafood. But again, it's a Russian package deal beach so gets very busy.
Overall, it's a great choice for families who prefer not to be in large complexes offering pseudo European hotel service among hundreds of people hoarding sunbeds and haggling for 10baht off a banana. But that's all there if you walk fifty metres past the "barrier". Plenty of people seemed to be return visitors, mostly Scandinavian.
We stayed 8 nights and found it a perfect base for day trips or just relaxing by the shallow beachfront. And yes, it's absolute beach front.
