What we say: 3 stars

The name may seem unusual, but it will make sense once you see the place: the bungalows here are set along the edge of the school's football field, and the owner Manoon is the head teacher at the nearby village school. Just a stone's throw from Bulon's best beach and the larger, more expensive resorts, it's an excellent location unless you mind the sound of school kids running about in the morning, and it's the only option for under 500 baht in this area. The six bamboo bungalows are all nearly identical and on the small side, but are fine for single travellers or couples. Floors are lino-lined, but plenty of crawling bugs manage to get in through cracks in the woven walls and you'll be glad there's a mosquito net. All of the bungalows have attached bathrooms with cold showers and Western toilets. There isn't exactly a reception so be patient and wait for Manoon to show up -- she's usually not too far away. High season only.
