Location, price, quiet
Property has an assortment of room styles of various ages and states of repair. We booked a fan room in the main concrete building. Room was adequate and bathroom ok. Had a bit of a musty smell that was much worse in other adjacent rooms. Our door didn't lock reliably, and the water kept shutting off. We complained and were upgraded to a nice wooden bungalow with larger private deck. Fan room is cheap, but highly recommend the wooden bungalows. Good value for proximity to beach, but not all rooms are equally nice. They were busy cleaning and fixing cosmetic stuff during our stay and it looked like plumbing and door locks were getting some attention after the complaints. Burmese staff were friendly and very kind to our toddler. Management didn't offer many smiles, but offered adequate service. Recommend to book a bungalow and ask to be moved if you have any issues. Haad Salad is a great beach that is very family friendly. Highly recommend!

Quiet, clean
Smile Resort is a bit far away from everything, but that makes it the perfect place to relax. The resort and beach are very quiet and calm. Beach is a few hundred meters away from the bungalows, it is a bit a shame that the water level is so low at the moment, you can't really swim.

Close to the beach and cheap”
the location was close to the beach, but not right on it. The staff was helpful, but not over the top. And it was cheap.
So you get what you pay for. Shouldn't expect much more than that. Maybe the nicer bungalows were nicer, but i was not so impressed , even though i knew i was getting a cheap deal. but super close to the beach, and that is what matters!

Awful... The loud disco music never stopped”
The view, that's it
I had prepaid for 8 days not realizing that the whole area is never quiet. I had heard about the full moon party, which to me is supposed to be on the full moon, well it's everyday... I had also read that it was far away from the party that it was quiet... Not true... It never stops. The location is a bit of a hike from town, and the road is dark, I recommend a flashlight.the breakfast is minimal, white bread, eggs, no milk for the coffee but powder...the view from the deck of the restaurant is beautiful, it's too bad that everything else sucks. No flushing toilet. You need to put water in the bowl. No hot water. No mosquito nets. And no screens on the windows. So critters do come in. I left after 3 days and I regret staying for those 3 days. It was 3 days lost. And I didn't get a refund for the rest. But if you're into loud music and getting smashed on drugs and booze, it's perfect.

Simple uncomplicated beach side bungalows/huts”
Close to beach, close to small village, close to nice restaurants
Stay was good. Didn't see staff very often but this was fine as there were no issues with the bungalow which was clean and what was expected. These bungalows are not beach front but the beach is only a very short stroll away.

Nice little hideaway”
Garden, restaurant, access to beach
Not a bad choice. Not directly on the beach but easy access in about three minutes of walking. Fairly basic bungalow but clean and good for the price. Balcony overlooking the garden was lovely and you can hear frogs at night. Quite cool, definitely didn't need air conditioning. Would love to have stayed longer but without free wifi, it was impossible as we were also trying to work online. Had read reviews that the paid wifi wasn't very good but did not test it ourselves.

Quietly, peaceful beach, cleanliness
I have stayed there for 4 night. It's suitable for family or friends trip. There're quietly beach with activities and also Thai massage at the beach. There're restaurant for dinner at the beach that's so romantic for the couple. The resort have bar and pool table but not at the beach front yet. Anyway, you walk only 2 minutes for go to the beach for all activities I told.

Did not realise how far it is from Haad Rin. If you're intending to experience rest of the island, this is not the resort. Overlooking location, poor transport links , it's a nice resort with nice beaches.

fair. the surrounding was nice with all the plants n flowers. it's only less than a 10 min walk to the beach. also less than 5-min walk to the convenient shops outside the road. however it's quite a long ride on motorbike to tongsala, the pier town, about 25 min ride.
