          Is your hotel near a scuba diving shop? Also we are deciding between the months of October and March to visit. How is the weather and the beach in those months? Thank You

          Hi Samantha, It's Rick here,we've been to the lovely Waterfront 4 times now and love it,bungalow No3 has a really lovely view looking straight out across the pool and on to the beach....beautiful!! (Our friends always stay in that one) but the honeymoon suite is a really really lovely room looking straight out on to the island 'Koh Phangan' (very romantic) more expensive as you know,but I think well worth it as its a much bigger living space and nicer lay-out,we always stay in 'a room' or 'suite' as I do find the bungalows a little snug, but hay!!! What ever you choose your have a fantastic time-trust me, hope this helps a bit! enjoy Rick & Jacquie 😎👍
