Travelled with friends and a 3 year old we needed accommodation that was not a mega resort and was within walking distance for dining. The Banana Fan Sea Resort was perfect!
The resort was located on the beach but had great privacy. The rooms were always clean and the staff friendly and attentive to all our needs especially the 3 year old!
Pool is not massive but clean and there are lovely lounges and umbrellas to just relax. We had to get use to the "grab a lounge with a towel" in the morning routine when we went to breakfast. Otherwise we would have struggled to get a sun lounge together.
Breakfast is buffet style with a chef to make your choice of eggs etc. All good! Lovely choices of fresh juices and fruits etc. We ate at the restuarant and the food was great with a comprehensive drinks menu.
You can walk out the front of the resort, turn to the right and try Ninja Crepes across and up the road for food. Do not be put off by its laid back appearance the food is terrifc and the lime shakes which are identical to a lime granita are just what you need in the heat (you can also get them to take away!)
There are so many good restaurants on the beach just remember to be adventurous and try Thailands amazing cuisine. You will end up paying more for a Western dish when you can have an authenic Thai meal for half the price.
Just a quick word of advice if you are looking for good quality "replica" bags this is the place to shop not Bangkok. My friend bought a great bag in a shop owned by an Indian family (not one of the touristy cheap cheap shops) that she gets many comments on back home and I thought I would leave it till I got to Bangers! BIG MISTAKE!
