Top Resort

The name doesn't lie

What we say: 4 stars

From the main road, Top's plain rectangular main building and faded sign with block letters lends the impression that this is a faded star, but in reality, it's one of the best family resorts on the island. The mid-size, midrange, German-run resort is set on the hill that overlooks the ocean -- so no direct beach access. It does however boast a small but inviting swimming pool to go with a poolside bar, larger-than-life chessboard and lush grounds with plenty of frangipani and a few cacti. Rooms come in several different styles, with the cheapest set in the main three-storey building and others in huge standalone villas with names like "Lighthouse Lodge" and "Wolf's Den". Even the smallest rooms are enormous, spotless and well-equipped with safes, wide LCD TVs, fridges, comfy beds, tables and chairs, spacious bathrooms and interesting decor that blends traditional Thai village scenes with psychedelic Buddha faces. Some of the larger villas have mini-kitchens while others have full kitchens complete with propane stoves. The family cottage has two bedrooms with three beds and cushy living room. All villas have large patios. Though it's definitely a German vibe, the owner speaks good English and Thai, and everyone is welcome. If the cheapest rooms are full, you'll find similarly priced but lesser quality digs across the street at either Paddy's Palms or Kereeele (yes, five Es).
