We had used this restaurant many times on a previous visit and it was great. This return lunch wasn’t at the same level though and we left a bit disappointed .

We both ordered Thai salads but it was like the produce wasn’t that fresh at all. The papaya with chicken was very good but the with fruit tasted a little bit old so with so many great places on this beach we won’t be returning to this one.

- no real help from the staff regarding my transfer to khao lak
- instead of the old tube tv: flatscreen tv mounted to the wall; you could just swap mounting position with the mirror, as currently it is hardly possible to watch tv for both guests - this way you would free the space where the old tube tv is currently located; the space could serve as a desk, add a chair and e.g. a notebook could be used there (currently there is no proper desk and chair in the bungalow)
- install power sockets next to bed and incl. power adapter
- in the bathroom, close to the sink: mount a holder for toothpaste etc.
- maybe this requires replacement of old furniture: some of it doesn't look clean really
- improve cable tv / use digital tv (at the moment, many channels can't be watched due to too much noise)
- there must be bugs in the wood between bedroom and bathroom: i heard scratching noises at night
- water pumpt next to bungalow went on and off every few seconds 24 hours a day - very annoying when you want to sleep! staff said they couldn't do anything about it

We visited this place twice. The restaurant is located on the long beach with a stunning view on the sunset.
One can choose from a range of fresh fish and sea food. Meals are delicious and very fresh.
Unfortunately service should improve a lot. There were many waiters but completely unorganized. We were asked the same question by 4 waiters. When I ordered pot of tea I got only cup of tea but finally was charged for a pot even though I informed stuff that there was a mistake.
Pretty disturbing was also stuff itself. They tend to stare at you a lot. When you read menu they wait next to you and you start feelin some pressure. I finished my meal faster than my boyfriend. When he was still eating, a waiter came and wanted to take his plate (even though there was still a lot of food on it). On European restaurant such behaviour would be unacceptable.
Music was nice and the surrounding was charming so we decided to order some drinks which was a bit dissapoonting. The drinks were dilluted with ice and juice was of poor quality.
I consider this restaurant as very good due to fresh sea food and delicious meals, but staff should be better trained.

We experienced the beach to be clean, not crowded and a calm place to relax. We stayed at the Sayang Beach Resort (Oct 30 until Nov 4 2017) at the northern part of Long Beach where there were no people at all except from few resort guests. At least from what I saw other parts of Long Beach offer plenty of shade, too, and no one troubled the people lying there.

My recommendation for a place to have a massage at the beach would be 'Sow Massage' somewhere between the Sayang Beach Resort and the Somewhere Else Resort. I enjoyed a head/shoulder/neck/back massage for 400 Baht (1 h).

The weather was better than we expected it to be. It was mostly sunny and a bit cloudy. There was rain only one day, a shower in the morning, and then sunny again.

Try the restaurant - they offer delicious food!
