Smile Beach Resort. Smile Beach is a 5 minute walk from the beach. Rooms are nice. A/C or fan. This could be a fine place to stay, though there are better comparable options (Haad Salaad Resort), and less expensive (My Way) just a short walk away, and both are actually on the beach. If they replace a staff member or two, Smile Beach could be a good option. After leaving an 800 baht deposit for 1 night's stay, we arrived the next morning to be told the room would actually be 1,000 baht. We reminded the receptionist that we'd agreed to 800 baht and paid in full. We asked for our deposit back and were told no, stay for 1,000 baht or leave with no refund. We'd planned to stay 4 days but left after one night.500+ baht. edit
