If you attend on partying in koh phangan, this isn't the place for you. The room has everything you need: comfy bed, Wifi, aircon, hot showers, laptop working area etc etc. Mangrove Villa is a 5 minute walk from all the busy streets. It's close enough to the action but far enough that it is quiet at nighttime. In close... More

the room is much smaller than it appears in the pics. The attitude was pretty bad, when we came the guy at the reception was rude and unpleasant. the pool is very small and not so clean. the location is not that great, it's far away from most of bars and restaurants, but it is close to the night market...

Impressive looking villas, nearby to the pier & thong sala town centre with loads of amenities. Easy to do banking, locating cheap food (at the pantip market and other stalls), renting motorbikes & other stuff here. Service was shocking at first. Maybe because we arrived late ie 9pm on xmas day. May have caught the reception fella on a bad... More

The Mangrove is surprisingly good value for money, the hotel has around 10 rooms which are more like mini villas as they stand alone and have good privacy, the rooms are well built and have good quality fixtures and fittings, the bed is very big and comfortable. The pool is nice and the staff are helpful and friendly. I have... More

Good bungalow at tongsala, quite place beside the main road. Total of only 10 bungalows. Pool included. Good place to relax from the party life if the island. Besides one time that they did not clean the room (maybe they didn't pay attention to the"clean my room" sign), the overall hangout was good.

I stopped here on my own over xmas and new year, and it was spot on. Located just outside the centre, I couldn't fault it. Lovely surrounds, quiet, and reasonably priced (booked in advance so price was ok, probably would've been more if I'd have just turned up on the day). Had everything I needed, a decent bed, TV, wifi,... More

This place would be passable for a quarter of the price. The rooms were quite small, TV was an old CRT which did not work properly, hot water was intermittent and, most concerning, the room was often permeated by a tepid, nauseating stench from the nearby river/sewer. Note to self - never again book a room in a hotel located... More

First things first - if you have a cat that enjoys being swung, this is not the place for you. Bed was comfortable and the fridge worked. The internet was flaky, as was the TV and, most seriously, on 3 occasions in a 4-day visit, there was no hot water. I can forgive the rest, but when you've spent the... More

Came here as a group of twenties travelling. We were looking for something more off the beat and track from the regular tourist areas, and this fit the bill nicely. Large accommodating rooms with a bathroom to suit, very helpful owners willing to give advice and book taxis. The place is secluded enough that you could forget about the party... More
