The bungalows were pretty basic but had a step-up kinda homey feel to them compared to many that I've stayed in. The staff is really fun, and the food is very nice. In fact, they served the healthiest pad see ew I've ever had. Just be careful when ordering massaman curry that you're not under the fried rice section. The... More

The rooms are very basic fan rooms. Some ants in the bathroom. The location is out of this world incredible. The beach is amazing and Eden is a dream! Play movies at night on big screen! Get the "Mars milkshake" at the restaurant! Wow!! Yum!!! Staff is very nice.

My fiancee I have been living in Thailand for 8 months and recently spent four days on Haad Yuan. We had heard that Koh Phangan was gorgeous and worth seeing, but we aren't exactly the Full Mooner types. Don't get me wrong we love a good time, but drunken stupidity perpetrated by obnoxious tourists really isn't our thing. So with... More

Big blue is a great place to return too, as it’s on a really wonderful beach and actually serves great food in its restaurant. Unfortunately the rooms have gone very tired and really need updating and a good clean. The beds are lumpy and uncomfortable. All the staff are really sweet apart from the small girl behind reception with glasses,... More

we stayed here for about 10 nights. our room had two single beds. We struggled to sleep on the hard beds. There was no hot water in our room which was costing us 800baht each night. The bathroom was basic and no loo roll plus the water was not very powerful. Would of been nice to have nets, slightly better... More

Bungalows were basic, we had the second one back from the beach with two bedrooms each with a double bed and en-suite loo slash shower room. Not totally clean, lots of dust, stuff under the bed and a huge spider one night which meant I couldn't sleep the other nights lol. I reckon creepy crawlies would have stayed out had... More

I stayed at Big blue for the first time two years ago and loved it. I returned again this year not to be disappointed. It really is paradise! The basic room offers all you really need, the staff are really friendly and cannot do enough for you, the restaurant serves up great food and the nightly films really make a... More

We had planned to stay for a couple of nights but ended up staying 6. The area is hard to leave. The bungalows are pretty basic, with just a fan to blow a bit of a breeze on you every now and again. As other reviewers have mentioned the bedding is pretty crap, hard mattress and even harder pillow but... More

Another great stay at the Big Blue. My 4th time in 10 years here and I always like coming back. My only area where they need to improve is on the beds/pillows. I’m pretty sure I stayed on the same bed, using the same pillow 10 years ago. Time for a fresh set guys. It’s below standard in this department.... More

Yep the bungalows need a good scrub down and some new sheets, but I keep coming back. There's something's about this beach, the staff, the island....and I'm not a Full Moon Partier. It's so laid back and the bay is awesome for just laying back and floating. The price is right for a long term or budget traveler so grab... More
