Royal Orchid Resort
Royal Orchid Resort is located on the northern beach of Mae Haad directly opposite the sand bank leading to Koh Ma. The location of this bungalow resort is one of the main positives. The resort has fan and air-con bungalows with hot water and TV. There is also a restaurant. Much of the accommodation is priced in the mid-range. This place has received several bad reviews. The prices might be mid-range but the service appears to be of a budget quality. See comments.
The Royal Orchid Resort has both seaview and beachfront bungalows for rent. There are also a couple of air-con bungalows with double and single bed suitable for families. They don't have any extra cots for children.
The cheapest bungalows have a fan and cold water bathroom. The air-con rooms also feature hot water showers.
All the bungalows are made of wood in the traditional Thai style. If you get a bungalow here make sure that either it is sealed inside (no cracks in floor boards etc.) or that they provide a mosquito net over the bed.
The more expensive bungalows have a TV. Despite being on Agoda, it is unclear whether they are actually taking online bookings.

"The rooms are very old and not very clean. They do not provide mosquito nets and they don't clean the rooms at all during your stay." ThailandIstheBest, UK, Trip Advisor
"The rooms we unclean and in disrepair. There are no top sheets on the bed. When we would ask the manager to fix a broken thing in our room he would just say "I'll do it tomorrow."." BShumano7, Trip Advisor
