On the other hand staff was nice(especially the italian manager and the barman) When we arrived i check at the reception... More

In the morning, the hotel manager said that we could stay in the new room, but we would have to pay extra for the air con. We said no, so he removed... More

Nice and quiet hotel, right on the beach with an average priced restaurant and good coconut milkshakes. I got a room with no A/C and at night the heat was quite unbearable but that's what you get on the island for a cheap price. Staff and owner very helpful and friendly.

The hotel is located right next to one of the white sand beaches on Koh Phangan. The ideal location adds to the tidy pretty hotel rooms and the very hospitable owner (Mr. Cavarno), who takes extra care to make his customers comfortable and happy. They have a special Saturday seafood BBQ dinner which is a must try. The owner, who... More
