The swimming pool is very nice, as well as the staff who fixed our shower very quickly. The hotel is 7 minutes walking from the main beach so it's a little bit far from the parties. Food in the hotel restaurant is average at best. The rooms are very minimal and we hoped for a bit more for the amount... More

Stayed here for 2 nights after the full moon party rush. Right on the beach, but not the main busy haad rin beach so is nice and quiet. Still only a 5 min walk to the main shops and restaurants. Lovely pool facilities. Excellent wifi. Friendly staff. Would recommend!

The pool and accommodations at this resort are quite good relative to the surrounding area, but the price is significantly higher than the high quality hostels and resorts in the rest of the Haad Rin area. When you first walk into the resort it is obvious that the proprietors prey on their customers as there are signs touting extremely expensive... More

Excellent service from staff, the facilities were also great and the rooms were very clean and well looked after. Only downside is they only service room every 3 days. The beach isnt the greatest but a walk further down and its good. Stunning sunsets can be seen.

Oh my days Koh Pangh Yang has changed!!!!! No body stays around anymore as this place is soooooooo expensive!!!!! Oui at the Friendly is lovely....rooms around £40/night around full moon. Otherwise £20. Ideal base as small walk from the main beach, so can get away from the madness if you need . Pool is lovely. Great place.

Stayed here during full moon, and really struggled to get accommodation. Having stayed here before we decided to go back as remembered it to be pretty good. Unfortunately this time round we got put into one of the cottage rooms which seemed pretty run down and dirty compared to the hotel room we had on our last stay. Great pool... More

Reserved a room with minimum 3 night stay, which they changed to one night and left us stranded during the full moon party. Nice place otherwise with a clean pool and pretty affordable for what you get- too bad about the management and employees.

We just came back to the friendly resort because we liked it so much two weeks ago. Very good value for the money, lovely pool, our 2 year old son loves it here. He played the whole day with the owners kids or was in the pool. They gave him loads of donuts :). The owner took my husband out... More
