Overall the trip was very enjoyable. Local travel service "Absolute" did a good job. Driver and tour guide were always on time and courteous. This travel company was dependable. We will definite use them again in the future. The resort on Koh Russey Island was a poor choice. The island and the service staff were absolutely wonderful; other than that everything else was awful. They charged an arm and a leg for everything. The dinner costed average 70-80 US Dollars per person for food and drink. In addition, they charged 21% for taxes and services. We don't mind to pay for good food but their quality was below par. We had tiger shrimps the first day. They were definitely frozen stocks and one of them was even rotten. There were few dishes that were tasty. I ordered a medium rare steak one day and it was medium well. They probably can not make medium rare because the steak was quite thin. A bottled water costed nine dollars plus 21%. The sad part was that I did not even order the water. She opened without checking with me. The waitress did not speak much English and I did not bother to argue with her. We tried to schedule some activities on the island and found out that they were unreasonable expensive. We were thinking about getting off the island for some sightseeing and exploration and was told to cost one hundred dollars person plus 21%; snorkel was 65 dollars per person for two hours plus tax and service, etc. Thank god we had a fishing trip booked ahead; otherwise we would be stuck on the island doing nothing except sun bathing for four days. I think if the resort is more reasonable with their charges, we would do a lot more activities and enjoy more food and end up to spend a lot more money. Anyway I would not go back to this resort again and would not recommend it to any of my friends.
Most everything except the resort on Koh Russey Island.
Schedule better fishing trips and check other hotels.
