I got into a motorbike accident and couldn't walk for the first two days and they helped carry me wherever I needed to go and always made sure I was... More

Shiralea is a very relaxing place!! Me and my girlfriend spent 3 very nice days here and we would have stayed longer if possible. It's quit cheap compared to the other resorts of the area and is located near one of the nicest beaches of the island, beautiful for swimming and with many very nice chilled bars for the evening....

This has to be the greatest place I've stayed at in Thailand. The dorms are comfortable and clean. The amenities are all good. The beach is 30 seconds away and amazing. But what's best about this place is the people, the staff and of course the bar. The staff was really helpful during our whole stay and we met awesome... More

I stayed in the dorms for three days and I was very happy with my stay. The room/bed was clean and each bed was equipped with a separate locker (big enough for a huge backpack), curtains for privacy and a towel. There was a well functioning A/C in each room as well. The bathroom was clean and there was hot... More
