Stayed here for two nights, it was cheap and very beautiful location. Bedroom was good, had fans and a mosquito net; bathroom was not great, every single thing leaked so everything was wet all the time and ants everywhere. Staff was friendly though, we did the coral cave and Cheow chan lake tour, but our tour guide was very unprofessional... More

This is possibly the most hated accommodation on the island of Ko Phayam which is an amazingly friendly island. The rooms are a little overpriced compared with the rest of the beach. You pay for the decked restaurant which makes the resort look much posher than it is in reality. The real problem here is the owners. There is an... More

We visited bamboo bungalows for 5 nights. The place is very lovely and quite. Prefect located with direct beach front. Food and drinks are in good quality with fair prices. Nice and very friendly staff. Bungalow and bathroom are very basic but clean. No a/c but vent. Special thanks to Nicy and "little monkey"

We had a great stay and were made to feel very welcome. There were 7 children from 5- 14 yrs old in our group and they were very happy. Good food, simple, comfortable huts and lovely people. If you are fussy about air conditioning this place won't to suit you, it doesn't pretend to be a luxury hotel!

Sure its basic, but its basic done pretty well, I was there in the low season so had my choice of rooms and very few other people there. I chose the cheapest room just because it was right on the beach and the "basicness" just appealed. I've been in Thailand a long time and haven't seen this type of accommodation... More

We spent 3 nights here before moving across the Island to Buffalow Bay which in my opinion is a better location. Rooms are basic but clean and set in nicely maintained gardens. We were lucky enough to wake up to a group of huge hornbills in the trees outside our room. Restaurant serves decent food and drink & there are... More

I don't know what stuff is doing there but all territory of a resort is full of old leaves, it's so spooky there and dark all around. And the price is too big for old , bad maintained bungalows. If you don't want to spoil your vacation - avoid this place !!

Bungalows range from quite basic to nicer looking ones. Each Bungalow comes with the obligatory hammock and a few sunbeds are provided on the beach. The location on Ao Yai beach is pretty good, although not my favorite on the island. Food is good, but a bit pricey. Wifi is sometimes ok, but only available in the restaurant area.

Be under no illusions, Bamboo bungalows is very VERY basic. Concrete floor, old matress and mosquito net. There is a loo but it is pretty much outside but he reason it is basic is because that is what it is trying to be. It is right on the beach, lots of places to eat, there are some tourists but I...

It doesn't matter if it's a modest guesthouse or a 5* hotel: some places have "it". The moment you enter you can feel the good vibes, generated from the management (and carefully chosen staff) who genuinely care for the wellbeing of their guests. This place has definitely NOT that kind of vibe... It is very clear that the only motivation... More
