Really nice view, nice staff (bad englisch, but very friendly)! Cute bungalow, really good place to relax and enjoy the beach. Only thing you cant swim in the sea because its undeep and to much rocks in the water. The bungalow gets really hot (no airco) so i took 3 showers a day. And you have to get a taxi to everything. But the place is sooo beautiful. For this price really good place
i got placed in the lee's garden (next door) while i booked bang namkem. as a girl travelling on my own i felt a bit unsafe since there were many agressively barking dogs and at night there was literally no lighting on the property. also the place felt desolate. i left after one night (i booked three). maybe if you're travelling as a couple it's better: there is a pretty garden and it's on the beach
Having read good reviews, we booked to stay over full moon. It was pricey but so is everything on the island. Rooms were infested with ants. Staff were friendly but never to be seen. Location was far from everything. But worst of all was the vicious dogs lurking around the bungalows! You do not expect to be growled at and bitten whilst innocently walking to your room. Owners could of done more!
