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!

It is a very good place to stay. Great price for value you get. The owner is very helpful although his English is poor. Great location, clean place and comfortable. Wifi worked well. If I come back to Thailand I will stay there again
I have no idea why this place gets some poor reviews. We spent 3 nights here over Full Moon Party and thought it was the best. The bungalows are solid concrete structures with a little patio bit and hammock, clean and spacious with fly screens and the most powerful ceiling fan I've ever seen. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and it was great to be separate from the craziness of Haad Rin. If you're looking for somewhere good value in Ban Tai this is it.
