So, we were booked into another resort, and drove up on a day trip to visit Ko Ma - the little island point with good snorkeling. Miserable with our other accommodation, we looked around, and asked about bungalow prices and made an inspection. We got a beach front bungalow which was lovely. It had air conditioning, fly screens, clean sheets... More

I arrived in low season, in the evening and there were plenty of bungalows available - so I got a pretty good deal. Other bungalows on Mae haad were 2x the price and not on the beach. I planned for 1 night but stayed 4 as the place grew on me - to be able to get up early, walk... More

We wanted to do some snorkelling and we decided to head to Haad Mae. aAfter seeing many places we landed at Island View Cabana. The Bungalow seemed alright and we decided to take it. When we got in, we found out there were no windows. No plumbing system and we could not even lock the door. We went back and... More

I had a horrible experience in this place. Booked 3 nights but stayed only one! At night the bungalows get infested by cockroaches, crickets and many other insects while you are sleeping (if you can sleep!). My night was A NIGHTMARE. I was hearing noises of the insects crowling into the room from the holes in the walls and the... More

Holiday was a nightmare caused by food poisoning and staff rudeness. We ate the first 2 days only at their restaurant. Both had severe food poisoning from their seafood. For the next 6 days for one of us 2 days for the other. This can happen, we have travelled extensively through Asia and remote Pacific Islands, so we coped! Just... More

when you pay 400thb a night you can't really argue. You get a beach bungalow very near others (meaning noise); on the beach, rustic. To be fair it is pretty scenic, relaxed and quiet; plus staff were friendly. Snorkeling was ok if nothing special. Mostly families, couples and young groups when we were there. There is a little beach bear... More

Many bungalows by the water are around 900-3000 baht.at nicer places . Here theybrange from 400- 1500. If u want cheap then go here.. if u are a complainer dont! This place has no sense of service. If the staff set fire of your bungalow in the middle of the night, dont expect an apology. The 21 year old "manager"... More

Arrived at the beach on the 5th October, viewed the cheapest hut - 500 baht, and we laughed as we looked inside for two seconds, and then walked back out. The second hut was 1200 baht, but we haggled for 1000. It wasn't good, but we were tired so took it. Big mistake! Hut 19 was dark, even with three... More

One posive point, the beach and the island view... Many negative points: overpriced restaurant and low quality of food, overpriced services ( ie. Laundry), they want be paid immediately at the beginning of your stay. Quality of bungalows could be improved. Conclusion: enjoy the bungalows view but I suggest strongly to eat in the sympatic thaï restaurants nearby the resort

We booked a seafront bungalow in advance. After arriving to the reception we noted that the prices are higher (with 200 THB) if you book in advance than "walk-in" prices. Although it was Full moon party season, there were lot of empty bungalows. I read a lot of reviews where lack of cleaning was put as a negative thing-as we... More
