Jo Guesthouse is located in the quieter south Khao Lak (which ironically is the original Khao Lak, not the busy resort filled northern part of town), and offers comfortable modern rooms. The hostess and staff are all very friendly and a generous free breakfast included. The upstairs rooms have a roomy balcony with partial sea views. You are only 50 metres from the beach. There is a nice pub next door (Peter's Bar), and Mr Ju's Restaurant is just around the corner. We went to a Muay Thai boxing demonstration just down the road. Overall, great value for money!
