We arrived by taxi boat which was a hidden extra cost but we booked the room cheaper non direct so why would there be a free pickup! Staff were friendly and the main young lady with the baby couldnt have been more helpful. The waiter did get orders wrong and spoke little english but maybe if most of us bothered... More

Stayed here in June 2013 after partying at Half Moon Party near Thongsala at other end of island. Needed a nice beach, somewhere quiet to recover and just mellow out. This place was awesome, had to take a songtow [truck taxi thing] across the island, then a small motor boat to this part of island as its REALLY hard to... More

You need to spend a bit more money in order to really make the most of this resort, it was apparent that the larger groups of people received far far much more attention then the couples! Our first room, the very basic room with just a fan, was brutal to say the least, the metal roof covered in leaves, let... More

I'm really surprised to read so many mixed reviews of Bottle Beach and this resort. I have just returned from my second visit in four years to Bottle Beach. It is the most stunning beach I have been to in Thailand and stepping out of a BB1 beach hut onto the beach is an experience you will rarely get in... More

Had a fabulous time while I was here last May with my beach travellers group! Food, service, rooms and beach were great! Yoyo is a great guy! There is a lookout nearby- it is quite the hike but definitely worth it! Overall I had a great time and would return here in a heartbeat :)

I can not stress enough how bad this place is. The good reviewers are either high or have been paid off. The rooms are filthy, nothing works, the food is inedible, the staff are not interested, they do not stock cocktail drinks, the pool is filthy, the manager is an absolute joke. I lasted three days and left. I was... More

The only good thing: The staff tried their best to help us. Not the owner! They didn't charge us for the hoteltaxi to leave again. First of all we couldn't reach the beach by boat because the sea was too rough, the locals knew but the taxitriver took us anyway up north just to take us back again and charged... More

On paper Bottle beach 1 sounds fantastic, a cut off paradise to escape and unwind..."Float away to Paradise" they say, well unfortuantely this was not our experience. Initially we thought wow, everything looked great, friendly staff, they got our room ready for us early, welcome drink etc, then the cracks started to appear. We had booked 5 nights over new... More
