This was a decent hut that was only a 2 min walk to the beach. For two people was a good price especially for the time of the full moon party. The veranda could have done with a cleaning but the inside was pretty clean and tidy when we arrived. The location was good- Haad Salad is a very nice... More

I stayed in a Bungalow with fan, it was very beautiful and clean. The resort is near the beach, you just have to walk for 2 minutes and you'll reach Haad Salad. The things that I disliked here were that I booked the bungalow for three nights because there was an offer in their webpage "stay 3 nights and pay... More

These bungalows are good value for money. The bathrooms are clean, with hot showers. Fan, netting in the windows & a Safe inside the room for valuables,etc...The owner is very nice & helpful, he helped me book tickets to Koh Tao Island. He drove us in his taxi to the pier when we left at a discount rate. The other... More

Stayed here for a few days for the full moon party... was a bit out the way but there was a regular taxi put on by the hotel to get us back. We were also collected from the boat when we first arrived. The actual resort was quite nice, but very basic. The food was ok too. Probably better places... More

I have travelled to many places in Asia, but have never felt compelled to write a review until now. Throughout my travels, I have stayed in good and bad places. I have always tried to see a positive side to the bad places telling myself things such as, you get what you pay for etc.. The only thing friendly about... More

The land of smile , lost the smile. Money money money nothing else and they don't even smile when you pay them. Terrible energy in general. Not on the beach, no wi fi , dirty rooms but the worse is that the guy there is very angry most of the time. Not a good idea to stay there.

My boyfrien and I have booked a double room/bungalow for 10 days over Christmas and new year at Smile Beach Resort. Despite the bad reviews we thought we'll give it a go as the description from the from the management was perfect: 1) "We have Internet cafe and wi-fi" 2) "1-2 minutes walk to beautiful and secluded beach" 3) "You...

Owner will charge for small almost invisible scatches an absurd amount of money. Also expect running water noises that might disturb your sleep in the bungalows. Guy at reception is obnoxious. Overall bad experince and service

No doubts about this place; location is perfect, ambiance is perfect, hygiene is perfect. Just do it! (Just the wifi is a bit of a problem, but the bar at the beach has free wifi so it'll work there) if the full moon party is here you know it's gonna be busy so deal with it, without the party it's...

We stayed here having decided to move to Haad Salad from elsewhere on the island, so we asked at a few resorts to see where we could get a room. We ended up in the smallest ac bungalow here as they didn't have any bigger ones left - it was ok but pretty small, so I'd recommend paying a bit... More
