Everything was amazing. The location is perfect within its own private beach (so keep in mind you'll need to ride a boat to get to this hotel). They offer free speed boat rides at specific times, but be sure to book ahead of time with the concierge as space fills up quickly. Once there's no more space you have to book a long tail boat and pay for this service per person.
You can borrow paddle boards or kayaks and take them around free of charge. This was pretty nice! They also offer complimentary daily activities for guests such as beach yoga, boot camp, beach volleyball, etc... The ocean-facing rooms have amazing views, so recommend staying at one of those.
For breakfast, we recommend booking room inclusive of breakfast as purchasing it onsite is 700THB per person. They do not offer a-la-carte breakfast so you're pretty much stuck with this expense even if you just want some fruit and oatmeal. They do offer an in-room dining option for breakfast, but the price is pretty close to the buffet, so we preferred to go for their buffet option.
Their restaurants are quite pricy and not so spectacular so perhaps try and eat some place within downtown Ao Nang.
Definitely use the monkey trail to go to downtown Ao Nang, it's quite amusing.

Located in the Pai-Plong Bay area of Ao-Nang, this tropical resort is also within two km (1.5 miles) of Railay Beach.The 192 …More
I had a great experience at Tonsai. The breakfast is not that good, though. Very limited. No internet in the rooms. Tonsai area is a hippie place. It has a very good vibe, but I would not say it is the ideal place for a family with kids. A lot of backpackers and also those who arrive and never want to leave. It is not a commercial place. Don't expect to find stores selling stuff. Just the mini markets selling essential things.
I super love this guesthouse. Tho its not near the beach (bout 5 minutes by vehicle), but the location is good.Near to the main road, at the junction near this guesthouse also have a halal restaurant. It is new so all the accomodation is in god condition.
Rainy is so friendly. She helps us a lot. When I was at the Emerald Pool which is took about 1 1/2 hour from Ao Nang, I emailed her to ask for a late check out and she allows us to check out at noon.
There is also a free ride by tuktuk from the guesthouse to the beach.
We booked this hotel as the details were that is was near Ao Nang and Krabi and seemed good value. What wasn't advised in the details about the hotel was that it is in a bay that is only accessible by longtail boat. These leave Ao Nang when they have eight people on board and you have to carry your suitcases in the sea to load them. This would be fine if we knew in advance! We had to leave a day early as the boats are not reliable as to leaving times and we had a plane to catch the final day.
2 restaurants and a bar that view the ocean. Just the best possible location you could ask for. Under a five minute walk from: The main area to go out (Bars, Ladyboy shows, 7-11), multiple restaurants, kayak and snorkel rental, gift shops, speed and tiger boat launch area.
Nice stay for families with 2 children. We stayed in the triple room with one king and one single bed.
The hotel staff was friendly and we didn't encounter any problems during check in / out.
Room was quiet and peaceful.
A 15 min to all the markets! The staff were so helpful and making sure we knew where we were going. They gave us a list of places to check out, a map and told us to try certain Vietnamese foods and iced coffee.
The room was nice, clean and pretty big!
