The towels was very grisi and dirty so we didnt felt clean after shower. The AC and wifi were very good. The beach... More

My friends and I stayed at this hotel during the full moon festivities and it was the perfect location, far enough away from the party to not have any noise issues and just a cheap taxi ride down the the party. Staff were amazing and even painted me a kangaroo on me for the full moon party. Food, pool and... More

We are currently staying here and while I wait to rent a bike to explore the island I thought it would be a good opportunity to write a review of my stay here thus far. Good points: Lovely spacious room with a comfortable bed, aircon, safe, balcony. The pool area has sunbeds, big pool, jacuzzi and a view of the... More

I stayed here for two nights after just landing in KP. The Not good: I booked a Deluxe room, which does not have an ocean view of any kind and overlooks a poorly maintained "garden". The property is lush, it just needs some upkeep. I had no hot water, even asking them to fix it three times. The linens need... More

5 of us set out from Bangkok to Koh Samui then by speed boat to Koh Phangan then by an over crowded non air conditioned bus to the First Villa Beach Resort. We were grumpy to say the least and then we saw the beautiful ocean looking back at us and we became a little calm. Then we met Bobo,... More

Me and my boyfriend booked this place as we wanted to stay longer on koh phangnan, we booked 2 nights but ended up booking another because of how good it is. The rooms are basic but comfortable, we booked a standard room which had a comfy bed, tv, air con and a fridge. There's more superior rooms you can book... More

Great first impression, Bobo was lovely and we were even greeted with a welcome drink! This is where the positives ended. Got taken to our room and there were ants all over the bathroom, which they sprayed but just left the dead ants. Went for a lie by the pool, huge ants everywhere and biting us!!! Had dinner in the...

Stayed here with my sister on the night of the half moon party. Stayed in the cutest hut. Bobo and all her staff were the best we came across throughout our trip. Bobo makes such an effort to ensure all her guests get to know each other. Would recommend this to everyone!
