We stayed a couple of nights at this hotel, I have never seen such a rude and unfriendly personnel. First of all they charged us 200 baht per person for hotel pick up, but they told us it was not free once we already were on board. When we complained to the lady at the reception, she threatened us to... More

A great find, tucked out of the way on a brilliantly secluded beach. As our taxi turned into Starlight Resort we were apprehensive to say the least. As we walked past shabby buildings and drying laundry we figured something must be a miss... When you eventually pass these staff quarters and reach reception things do get a little better. Views...

Well located on beachfront with a range of bungalows and hotel style rooms (which are in a nice modern block), AC or fan. I found the hotel style room perfectly fine (i couldnt get a bungalow as all were booked) which was well appointed, clean, with fridge and TV and AC. However worth mentioning that I got a special 50%... More

Dont ever go to this resort. The personnel are rude and crazy. They charged us for a night we didnt spend and tried to fee us for towels we didnt get. The receptionist destroyed my phone after an argument which i have reported to the police. They have no sense of costumer service and they just want your money. Do... More

We travelled four families with children. Pool is very good but for children that can't swim at all it can be dangerous as there is no limited place for them, it's too easy to go to far and reach the deep water. They don't have own restaurant but there are quite a few around to choose, so this is not... More

I arrived for the full moon and met friends there, but i ended up staying because it was right beside the beach and the pool was lovely. The staff were ok, english was not great, and the one who did speak good english was always treating you like a suspect to a murder charge, not a guest, she scared me.... More

My husband and I booked one night at Starlight Bungalows at short notice during our honeymoon. We didn't realise that it was the night of the full moon party and most places down south were either fully booked or had a minimum stay of 3-5 nights. So we panic booked without reading enough reviews I think! It wasn't great for... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The hotel, pool, and beach in my opinion is one of the best on the island. I would be singing praise from the roof had it not have been for the Key Deposit. We were asked to pay 500 Baht as a deposit for our key (rather expensive for a key in my opinion).... More

Starlight is by far the nicest place along the beach and its pretty much the only place with a pool. Rooms reasonable, however the bathroom slightly dodgy and felt a bit dirty. Main issue was the staff. 'Lady' in reception potentially the rudest person I've ever experienced in a hotel or hostel. Extremely unhelpful and made us feel unwelcome. Tried... More
