It has long been the most rustic of the places to stay on Bottle Beach, so much so it seems almost like they build bungalows in a fallover style by design, but they're slowly rotating in a more modern style that will appeal to flashpackers and families while still retaining enough of the old shacks to keep the budget backpackers happy.

Brown and off-peach, the old huts are nothing more than a veranda, a mattress on a raised platform and a cold water bathroom, but they are right on the beachfront (there are actually at least two rows, with the second row being cheaper) and are great value for beach bums at 500 baht a night (300 baht in low season). These cheap huts are ideal for stringing hammocks, but you'll need to bring your own – not all have hammocks pre-installed.

The new (some were still being fitted out when we visited in mid 2016) bright white family rooms are better in every way with air-con and are well appointed, still right on the beach, and are towards the eastern end of the beach, keeping them nice and peaceful.

The restaurant was also our favourite of those on Bottle Beach, with good Thai food and very welcoming familiar service – if unorganised. There is a pool table, so you can play a few games while you wait for your food (or a menu!). There is seating within the restaurant along with chairs and tables out on the sand – go for the latter.

Great beach out front.

The other real budget option on Bottle Beach is Smile Beach, which you'll find at the other end of the beach, with good beach bungalows climbing up the western headland, but we we preferred here.
