    Rooms are very nice (SeaView Room) and clean with enough bathroom space. Rooms are also very clean. Staff is nice Food is really good. Breakfast has a small buffet part with some basics but you can than order a breakfast of choice on a menu which is excellent! I liked this solution and all the food all day long is of very high quality. Swimming Pool is very nice (maybe put some longchairs instead of only the mattresses because if you're getting a little older, lying on the floor is very low to the ground!) Private beach area nice and clean!

    Although the cleaning is great and the gardener is working the whole day some general maintenance starts to be needed (worn out wood, little bits of paint here and there to be redone, small repairs in lighting, lamps in the room etc.) The biggest issue for me is the Chinese people arriving by boat every morning for a day trip using part of the facilities of the hotel. Although personnel is trying to chase them out of the private beach or pool area, they don't often care and they have lack of respect for the people staying in the hotel I presume the hotel is doing this kind of business to complement the income but if you pay about 135€ (certainly now with the rate of the Thai Baht) and you have to see 150 rude Chinese arrive every day making noise, taking pictures everywhere, even of the private rooms of some people, using the toilets but leaving them dirty so that the personnel has to clean 10 times than the total value for money of the hotel is dropping down!... I loved the hotel but this experience disappointed me a lot ... not sure if I would stay there again. Without the one day travellers, NO DOUBT I would stay here again

    My friend and I were pleasantly surprised by the property. It's absolutely stunning and from whatever other resorts we came across during our walk, Mooban Talay seemed to be the best! Its got an amazing beach, good food and uniquely beautiful rooms. Loved the ambience and our experience of staying there. Note that its a good half-hour walk from the main stretch where all the restaurants are bars are so if you're looking for a quiet and peaceful area, this is your place to be :) The staff is also helpful and they even have boats going directly to the Pierre across the island!

    Perhaps voluntarily adding water bottles in the room during room service cleaning and adding hooks ,to hang, in the bathroom. Just some feedback for next time :)

    The location of our beach bungalow was unparalleled! In the morning we could watch the sun rise, during the day we had a view of the turquoise blue sea, in the evening we could look at the stars from the veranda and listen to the waves! Magic!

    It would be great to have a safe in the room. Some information about transport options to the village, and general information about the resort and the island could be given at arrival.

    Resort is tucked away at the end of the road with lovely forest on one side and clean white sand beach on the other side. Hotel grounds are meticulously manicured and clean. Cabins are spacious with outdoor showers and seating area. Hotel reception staff are super nice and attentive.

    From about 9am till mid afternoon, speedboat upon speedboat of Chinese tourists are dropped off and recollected at the coffeeshop next to the hotel and descend onto the hotel's "private beach". We watched the hotel's security guard try to keep the tourists off the beach merely holding a sign, but his attempts were feeble and he eventually put the sign in the sand and disappeared. The smell of gas emitted from the constant arrival and departure of Chinese tourist boats lingers in the air all day and is absolutely intoxicating. The smell and constant passing of speedboats really ruined the relaxing atmosphere. Breakfast staff seemed disinterested in doing their job and were not keen on replenishing quickly any item on the very small choice of a buffet. We ordered the the Good Morning Fried Rice and asked to exchange the sausage for an extra fried egg, kitchen staff did so but instead of sending our meal out with bacon (as the menu said) it came with square plastic ham instead. When we walked around and looked at other diners main courses, ours seemed to fall short of portion size and quality of ingredients
