Very Good 8.0
Go to The Racha.
Real neat hotel. Food is great. Take the Thai cooking class. Beach is busy but they all are. I wanted to do something islandish while in Thailand but I get seasick. So being only 15 miles off shore and speedboat transport available it worked out great. Even I can hold out for 20-30 minutes on the ocean. Snokling was amazing for no actual reef. Just big rocks. Would go back in a heartbeat.
