What we say: 3 stars

Pudsa offers a string of simple bungalows in the spirit of low key Thai island life. Tin roofed wood huts with fans are cramped, basic and grotty, with old linens on rock hard beds, a few windows, cold water bathrooms with non-flush toilets and tiny front porches. The larger dark wood fan bungalows face the beach's northern end, though an oddly placed wood picket fence makes it impossible to plunge straight from your bed into the surf. These are showing their age but we didn't smell any mustiness, and they come with large front porches, fridges, desks, hot water and flush toilets in the otherwise basic wet bathrooms. Concrete air-con rooms have TVs but are quite worn down and depressing. A somewhat indifferent staff can usually be roused from their slumber to help out, though this is a relaxed resort where things happen at their own pace. If you want to spend the same (or less) money on what's probably a more comfortable room and don't mind a five minute walk to the beach, we reckon Lelawadee Guesthouse on the side road leading into Ao Tubtim is worth checking out.
