Although (or perhaps because) this place is well known and gets mentioned in most guidebooks, it has a reputation of not being very friendly and the staff can be a little offhand.
The resort provides free WiFi but only guests staying at the resort are allowed to use it. Similarly boogie boards and kayaks are only rented out to guests. All the bungalows benefit from 24-hour solar powered lighting but the generator is only on from 11:00 to 14:00 and 18:00 to 22:00. Credit cards are accepted. You can also change money here though exchange rates are no doubt less favourable than in Ranong. Bungalows range across a few options from rustic thatch jobs through to pretty smart teak affairs, but the latter top-priced fan bungalows are overpriced given they are set back off the beach, behind the older and cheaper fare. Check their website for the full range of prices.
