Decent Place, but...
Stayed one night in February, 2008. Decent rooms, great views, had a private bathroom which I liked....
What we say:
Souksan at the very tip of the island has a couple of rooms in a concrete building that we once thought were going to have air-con installed. Now that electricity has come to the island, we return to find that the rooms are unchanged and still fan-cooled. The wooden bungalows are more stuffy, however, but it does nothing that the attached cold showers won't fix. This place is a little expensive for what you get, but is a popular spot nonetheless.

Decent Place, but...
Stayed one night in February, 2008. Decent rooms, great views, had a private bathroom which I liked. The staff tried to overcharge for a tour, boat tickets (which I ended up booking elsewhere) and then tried to charge me more for the room than what the owner & I originally agreed on. Ask to see the rooms, and then bargain on the price. The first price quoted will be quite high.

We stayed for three nights in mid February -- partly because of overbooking elsewhere on Don Dhet and partly because of laziness in the heat! The uncharming lady was charging US$11 for a double with fan with shared bathroom -- a significant increase to what is stated here on Travelfish. Although our room had a lovely view and was indeed clean, the smell from the nearby toilets didn't compliment the views. The atmosphere was non existent as most people seemed to keep themselves to themselves, or go elsewhere to eat and drink. A few others we met also stayed as short as possible before moving on to somewhere with lots more character for a fraction of the price.
