Arrived at midday to an empty and rundown 'resort'. Greeted by a rude lady who asked us to wait for 2 minutes, 40 minutes later she returned without keys but pointed us vaguely in the direction of our huts. Inside the beach huts there were dirty sheets on the bed, no locks on the doors, no safety boxes, no mosquito... More

Me and my girlfriend arrived to Munchies in December to celebrate 2 fullmoon parties on the island and we loved the place from minute one! The friendliest staff you can find. Best beachbar in Thailand. Basic accommodations, but absolutely perfect if you are on a tight budget. Make sure you visit the place during peakseason though. I can imagine it... More

I stayed here in July and if I could give this place less than one star I would. Chased by the owners dogs. In pitch black darkness when I get out of the bungalow, bar closed and wifi turned off after 8pm with a 15 minute walk to nearest taxi stand and down a road full of stray dogs. Avoid... More

Munchies was incredible. I stayed here with three of my friends a few days before the Full Moon Party. We took an overnight ferry and arrived early in the morning. The staff weren't even awake when we arrived but one got up quickly to accommodate us and get us a bungalow. His name was Nom I believe or something close... More

We stayed here over the full moon party period in December. We found that the bungalows were clean and good value, the beach was gorgeous and the resort had cool trees and landscaping. We'd read some reviews saying that Munchie's was a fun and lively place but while we were there, there were hardly any other guests. The restaurant/bar wasn't... More

I just wanted to stay five days on Koh Phangan - at the end I stayed on the Island for three weeks and Munchies is also responsible for that. I prefer Hotels to be honest, but I liked Munchies so much that I moved from the Hotel to this Resort. It is cheap (I payed 900 Baht a night) and... More

We unfortunately reserved 6 nights at this hole. The bungalow was simple, and not cared for. We also had to wait several hours for the bungalow to be ready. The first night we were there I leaned on the porch to hand a coconut to a friend and the entire porch railing crashed down, with me falling to the ground.... More

Had a good two night stay with my girlfriend , place is pretty basic but class views good hospitality espically from num the barman, food was good too would defiantly stay again but this place is backpacker oriented , be open minded and enjoy the Rastafarian chilled out touch with a view , would still stay again :)
