We stayed in J2B for 3 days in January. It has prime position on a fabulous beach which fortunately has not been populated by the masses (yet). The accomodation is basic, a wooden bungalow with a bathroom attached which was nice. Some attention needs to be paid to the accommodation though, our room had planks coming loose from the floor,...

A shortage of budget accommodations in Au Nan during the time of our visit led us to book J2b for three nights despite the mixed reviews we read on this site. We decided to go with an open mind and a positive attitude. Unfortunately, with just one shining exception of an English-speaking Thai woman named Kahn who was very helpful,... More

Such a shame to see so many rude, not just critical reviews. We stayed here about 2 years ago and it was lovely. It is a cheap stay, so people can't complain about mundane things like wifi (your on holiday ffs). It was a great location, great staff, awesome cat and towards the end, dogs! Everything readily available - great... More

Congratulations J2b - you win the award for worst place I stayed in 5 months travelling! I realise the owner will probably post an agressive reply to this saying "we're a budget hotel what did you expect" as he repeatedly complained to me during our stay. Yes thanks, I am aware of what a budget hotel is. I don't need... More

Your time at this resort is what you make it - if you want to be in a lively part of town then don't stay here! If peace and quiet is what your after then this is the place for you! The beach here is empty and the bungalows are secluded away meaning this is a perfect place if you... More
