We were initially a bit put off Dusita when we walked by along the beach by strings of barbed wire in places and signs on coconut palms declaring don't steal coconuts, don't trespass and don't camp, but from the rooms you can't see the signs and this friendly family-run resort is great value.
The bungalows encircle a large lawn area criss-crossed with coconut palms and an obviously extremely well cared for garden. The huts are a good size, with better bathrooms and kept to a better standard than Ngam Kho nextdoor. The cheapest bungalows are cold water only, but all have TV and the pricier ones have air-con (though not available all day, according to a sign). Very friendly owners round out the deal. This is a solid family option. The beach directly out front isn't good, but on the far side of the wooden pier (right beside the resort) it improves dramatically. Recommended.
