This resort is in a good location, right on the beach and has a great swimming pool. The hostels restaurant serves good food and has a great variety - but can't beat the burgers from the grub club which is also on site. Tommy was the politest man we've ever met and makes yummy food! Few suggestions which could have... More

We stayed here for 5 nights during the full moon period, and did not regret it. It's a great sociable place and the nights they organise are perfect for backpackers to socialise with each other. My only fault of the resort was the beach bungalow we had was so hot we did have to go to the supermarket to buy... More

The owners and staff where amazing and always willing to help and give good local advice on where to go and what to see. The bar staff where some of the friendliest I have met anywhere. All in all, I had an amazing time and will definately be back. Miss the team there already.

Nice bungalow on the beautiful beach, lovely staff, close to the centre of town and just a very enjoyable place to stay. The only blip would be the large numbers of ants in our bungalow, a lot of which were chasing some food left under our bed but other than this would highly, highly recommend.

My friends and I came to Koh Phangan simply (and naively) just for the full moon party, but we have left with so much more than that. We chose to stay at The beach village due to the reviews it's got, I couldn't agree more with anyone who gave it 5 stars. We stayed in an 8 bed dorm, every... More

Stayed in a 8 bed dorm room here, really nice, good location, right at the beach, close to bars and restaurants, which you also got on site. Also close to a dive shop if you are so inclined. A bar at the pool, and also a small burger joint on the beach 15 meters away, with home made burgers, it... More
