Doc Let’s soft white sand, clear blue water and line of swaying palms seem plucked from a postcard. Luckily there is at least one hotel available for every budget and except for GM Doc Let (not reviewed here), they are all a modest size, low-key and spread out. Doc Let isn’t perfect: Resorts regularly clean their patch of sand but stroll away from the resort and you’ll see that Doc Let suffers from the same rubbish problem as so many other beaches in Southeast Asia.
